I fell in love with Rovers from my first day here

Bradley Dack is delighted that his love affair with Rovers will continue long-term after the playmaker put pen-to-paper on a new three-year deal with the club.

It was an outstanding maiden campaign at Ewood Park for the 24-year-old ace, who finished top goalscorer with 18 goals in 2017-18 and picked up our Player of the Year and the League One Player of the Year for his efforts.
And speaking just minutes after putting the finishing touches to his new deal, the former Gillingham man was delighted to complete the paperwork and commit to Rovers.
“It’s been a bit of a long time coming but I’m absolutely delighted to sign on the dotted line and I can now look forward to the next few years of representing Blackburn Rovers," he told to iFollow Rovers at the Senior Training Centre earlier today.
“There was no doubt. It was always what I wanted to do and as soon as the season finished we went straight into talks. From the first day I arrived here I fell in love with the place.
“It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind really. We had a fantastic season and the fans took to me right away. It’s been amazing, from the players to all the staff, there’s a real togetherness at the club and I’m really enjoying my time here.
“I had ambitions when I first came here and we achieved that, but it’s probably gone better than I ever expected.
“It’s been a massive achievement. Not many people can say they’ve earned promotion in their careers and we’ve done that. We did it in style as well, particularly considering there was pressure on us to go straight back up."
It was a terrific season both on a personal level for Dack and for the club, and he reflects on his first 12 months at Rovers very fondly indeed.
“I wanted to get my head down and play the way I like to play, which I feel I’ve done," he added. "I feel I’ve improved as a player here, working with better players, better coaches in better facilities. How professional the club is makes you a better player and a better person.
“In my position, the main thing is to create and score goals. I just wanted to help the team whether I got five, 10 or 15 goals. As long as we got promoted then I was always going to be happy."
