Jason Lowe has paid tribute to the supporters and staff as his 13-year association with Rovers draws to a close.
The midfielder joined the club's Academy at the age of 12, progressing through the youth sides before making his senior debut in 2011 in the 1-0 FA Cup win over Queens Park Rangers.
A first Premier League outing against Chelsea followed a wek later, before he ended the 2010-11 campaign gaining further valuable league experience on loan at Oldham Athletic.
That summer he captained England in the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia, returning to Rovers to become a mainstay of the side over the next five years.
Predominantly a central midfielder, Lowe's versatility and willingness for the cause saw him feature in both full-back positions as well as at the centre of defence. He would go on to make just short of 200 appearances for the club, and was honoured by being captain last season.
"Blackburn Rovers will always have a special place in my heart and gave me all my opportunities to become successful," said Lowe.
"I'm grateful for everyone who has helped me through the ranks at Rovers since joining as a 12-year-old kid trying to achieve a dream.
"Special thanks to all the people from behind the scenes who are the backbone of the club day-to-day. There are too many to mention individually but from the kit men/women, house-parents in my youth, chefs, receptionists and secretaries I'm forever grateful.
"Thank you to all the analysts, coaches and managers I've worked with for helping me grow as a man and player from a kid to now.
"Finally, what makes a club is the fans. Coming into the team they've done nothing but back me through the good and rough times, they deserve to see the club have success again and I'm sure it will come sooner rather than later. They saw me achieve my dream and being the captain was an honour and privilege.
"From the bottom of my heart, thank you and I wish everyone at the club and the players every success in the near future.”
