Rovers youngster Lewis Thompson has been recalled from his loan spell at FC United of Manchester.

The 19-year-old only extended his youth loan with the National League North side earlier this month, which would have kept him at Broadhurst Park until December 15th, however he has returned to Rovers early following an injury to Jack Evans.

Thompson is eligible to play for Rovers with immediate effect and so will be available for selection for Monday night’s Premier League 2 clash against West Ham United Under-23s at Ewood Park.

Development squad boss Damien Johnson said: “The loan spell has benefited Lewis greatly. He has played a lot of games and progressed as a player, so we are keen to get him back in the fold and have a look at him.”
