Chapman: It's lovely to be back

"I’ve been trying to come back since January last year, so I need to thank the manager, the Chief Executive, the lads and everyone involved"

28 January 2019

New Rovers recruit Harry Chapman says he has unfinished business at the club after returning on a permanent deal from Championship rivals Middlesbrough.

The pacy winger may have only played 16 times in all competitions for the club last season, but the tricky 21-year-old had a lasting impact on Rovers supporters for his direct play.
 
Chapman's season was curtailed by hamstring injuries, which ended his season prematurely, but now he's back, he insists the best is yet to come.
 
“It’s lovely to be back," the young forward beamed to iFollow Rovers just moments after putting pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half year deal.
 
"I’ve been trying to come back since January last year, so I need to thank the manager, the Chief Executive, the lads and everyone involved.
 
“I’m delighted to be back. From the first day I walked into the place it was a great place to be around. I enjoyed every second, so why wouldn’t I want to come back?
 
“I can’t wait to get started again. I want to say a massive thank you to the manager for bringing me back. He didn’t have to, he could have waited until the summer and saved the club a bit of money.
 
“Last year was ended cruelly, but that happens in football. I’m injury free now and ready to go, so hopefully I can finish what I started here.
 
“The lads got the job done in the end and that was my main goal. It was a great day against Oxford on the last day of last season. Those memories will last forever, to be involved and celebrating with everyone at the club."
