I can't thank people enough

4 May 2015

David Dunn had a special word of thanks for the support he has received as called time on his Rovers career on Saturday.

The mercurial midfielder rolled back the years with a display to delight the home fans who had turned out to see his final appearance in a blue and white shirt.

The Academy graduate has been overwhelmed by the messages of thanks after he announced he was leaving the club a week ago, and was just pleased to be able to play his part in the 3-2 win over Ipswich Town on the final day of the season.

"I'd like to say a massive thanks to all the fans who came down to support me and the team," Dunn told Radio Rovers.

"I've been overwhelmed by the amount of support shown to me over the last week, and more importantly the last 20 years of my life.

"It has certainly been something I've thoroughly enjoyed and I can't thank people enough."

Dunn wore the captain's armband on his last Ewood outing, the only thing lacking on what would have been a perfect day for the 35-year-old was a goal in front of the Blackburn End.

"I really enjoyed it," added Dunn. "I had a few half-chances that I didn't quite connect with, but it wasn't meant to be. I can't let that be a blot on what has been a fantastic career for me.

"Everybody who knows me knows that I love playing football and that is what I intend to carry on doing.

"I don't see it as an end, I look forward to a new beginning - wherever that my be."

Whilst Dunn's future footballing plans aren't yet decided, one thing is for sure, the hometown boy will be back at Ewood Park soon as a supporter. 

"I'll be back next season as a fan, but where do I sit? Do I sit in the Blackburn End that I first started doing, or do I posh it with the big wigs, who knows, I'm not too sure.

"Depending on where I'm playing I'm sure I'll get to some games."
