Evans extends Ewood stay

20 November 2015

Rovers are delighted to announce that midfielder Corry Evans has committed his long-term future to the club.

The 25-year-old, who joined from Hull City in August 2013, has put pen-to-paper on a new contract, which will keep him at Ewood Park until the summer of 2019.

The Northern Ireland international, who has helped his country qualify for next summer’s Euros, has been one of Rovers’ standout players so far this season and is looking forward to a bright future in blue-and-white.

“I’m delighted to get it signed and I’m looking forward to playing here for the next three-and-a-half years,” said Corry.

“From the first minute I walked through the door, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time and I’m looking forward to the future.

“It’s a great club to play for and going to Brockhall every day for training is a great place to go to work. Everyone around the club has been great with me, the fans have been great, so I’ve really enjoyed my time.

“It’s probably one of the longest spells I’ve been at a club in my professional career, so it does feel like home. I’m really settled where I am and I really enjoy playing here.”

At the end of what has been a whirlwind week, Corry paid tribute to former manager Gary Bowyer for bringing him to the club, but he believes an exciting era lies ahead under new boss Paul Lambert.

“Gary did a great job and I’ll be forever thankful to him for bringing me to Blackburn and how he treated me was great,” added Corry, who has made 75 appearances in Rovers colours. “It was sad to see him go, but we’re looking forward to working with the new manager now.

“The past few days have been really enjoyable in training, all the players are having a go and we’re looking forward to what lies ahead.

“The new manager has been clear from day one with what he wants. He came in and told the lads what he expects and everyone has taken that on board so far.

“We’re all hungry to try and take this club back to where it belongs and hopefully, under the new manager, we can get there.”
