David Lowe pens new deal

David Lowe has pledged his commitment to the club by putting pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract.

The experienced coach will be part of Tony Mowbray's new-look backroom staff for the upcoming season, working alongside the manager and assistant manager Mark Venus as first team coach.

Lowe stepped up from his role as Head of Coaching at the Academy to assist Mowbray for the final few months of the 2016-17 season following his arrival at the club in February and had no hesitation in agreeing to continue his work with the senior squad once more.

"I'm delighted," said Lowe. "I'm looking forward to working with the first team and obviously with the manager and Mark Venus.

"I really enjoyed the experience. The players, the manager and David Dunn were all very good to work with.

"I hadn't worked with senior pros for quite a while. It is challenging, because you are under pressure with every game to win a football match, but it was really good."

Lowe knows that the aim for Rovers this forthcoming season will be to gain promotion back to the Championship, but he insists it will be far from easy in League One.

"Hopefully we can hit the ground running and get the club back up," he added.

"That will be our ultimate aim, to win as many football matches and get the club back in the Championship.

"Don't get me wrong, it is going to be a tough ask. It is a tough division. There are a lot of decent teams in the division. The fixtures come at you fast and furious, so you have got to be prepared and be on your game for every match and every team you face.

"It'll be a tough task, but hopefully with a few more signings throughout the summer we can get the club back towards where it belongs and where we all want to be."

• Don't forget, Rovers fans have until Saturday July 1st to take advantage of the club's price freeze on season tickets for the 2017-18 season.

With adult prices starting from just £279, it means supporters who buy or renew a season ticket can see all the action at Ewood Park for less than £13 per game.
