Craig: Only fond memories of my time at Ewood

“I look back on my time here with great fondness, I’ve loved every minute of it"

28 May 2019

Craig Conway admits Rovers will always have a place in his heart, with his five-and-a-half year stay at Ewood Park set to come to an end this summer.

The 34-year-old Scot appeared 200 times in all competitions for the club after arriving from Cardiff City in January 2014.
 
He bagged 22 goals during his spell in East Lancashire, and says he'll hold superb memories of his time in the north-west.
 
“I look back on my time here with great fondness, I’ve loved every minute of it," he told iFollow Rovers.
 
“From a footballing career, it flies by. I think it was almost six years ago that I signed here and I can’t even remember my first goal, so perhaps it’s a little further away than my memory suggests.
 
“It feels only yesterday that I walked through the doors here and sat down to conduct my first interview with the club.
 
“It’s been brilliant and there have been highs and lows. The first couple of seasons here went really well, under a few different managers.
 
“There have been times where I’ve played every week and other times where I’ve been in and out of the side.
 
“But on the whole I’ve loved it."
 
Rovers are gearing up for a second successive season in the Championship, and Conway believes the turning point for the club came just after relegation from the Championship back at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
 
The former Dundee United man scored on the final day of that season at Brentford, but it wasn't enough to stop Rovers falling through the trap door, with Conway admitting it was his worst moment on a pitch.
 
"A massive thing was getting relegated, it was a horrible time and the worst I’ve ever felt in my career because you do feel responsible," he added.
 
“All the players felt like that, so I was really pleased that we put that right and got the club back up.
 
“Hopefully over the next few years the club can get back where it deserves to be - in the Premier League. 
 
“The manager has definitely built a squad that’s capable and I’m sure he’ll be adding further to help things along."
