It's great to be back

29 May 2013

Alan Judge has spoken of his delight at returning to Blackburn Rovers.

The Irishman started his career at the club, joining the Academy as a 16-year-old eight years ago.

After his contract with Notts County ends this summer, the attacker will re-sign for Rovers on a three-year deal and he can't wait to get going once more.

"To be honest it feels a bit weird coming back," Judge exclusively told Rovers Player.

"I came though the Academy and then went out to Plymouth and Notts County to gain some experience, so just to come back here to re-sign is great.

"It is what I have always wanted to do. I've always wanted to play for the club. It was just unlucky the first time around with Sam Allardyce, as I wasn't in his plans.

"I was on the verge of the first team when I was here, but it didn't work for me at the time.

"So I've gone away, got some experience and now hopefully I'll get a few more games."

Judge admitted the chance to return to Rovers and play for new manager Gary Bowyer was all the incentive he needed.

"It is one of the main reasons that I've returned here," added the fleet-footed forward.

"I got on with Gaz so well at youth level, he knows me as a person and as a player. He knows everything about me."
