Corry Evans says he's never felt as good after being a regular in the 2018-19 campaign for Tony Mowbray's Rovers.
Although he's had injury issues during his time at Ewood Park, Evans showed excellent consistency in his central midfield role last term, with the Northern Irishman being the favoured midfield option for Mowbray.
The 28-year-old amassed 36 appearances in all competitions for the club during the last campaign, in which Rovers finished the term in 15th place.
And he believes better times are on the horizon, especially with reinforcements set to arrive this summer.
"We have to build and the manager has mentioned that he’s going to bring in new signings to improve the squad," Evans told iFollow Rovers.
"The more competition the better, so it should be a good summer.
“We’ve got a lot of talented players here and this season will stand them in good stead.
“I’ve been happy with my performances and I’ve felt good and strong throughout the season.
“The last couple of years I’ve felt really good about my body. The work that I’m putting in behind the scenes seems to really be working for me.
“I think a lot of teams in this league have the aim of finishing in the top six and we’re a big club in this division so we’ll be looking to do the same.
“It’s always good when new signings come in as it raises the standards in training and adds competition for places, which is what the manager wants."
