Loan Rover Harrison Reed says he’s loved his time at Ewood Park after picking up the Best Newcomer prize at the club’s End of Season Awards evening.
The 24-year-old, who will miss Sunday’s final game of the season at home to Swansea City at Ewood Park, earned the gong after 36 all-action, energetic appearances in blue-and-white.
After collecting his award from John Charley from FlavourArt, the diminutive Southampton loanee was pleased to help the side to a good campaign back in the second tier.
“It’s great. To come here, to put in performances and to get some recognition at the end of the season is something I looked to do when I first joined in the summer,” he admitted on stage.
“I’m pleased with it. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it at Rovers since I first stepped foot in the training ground.
“Having met the boys and the manager I knew it was the place to come and improve and show what I can do.
“I can’t thank the boys, the gaffer and the staff enough for helping me do that.
“The goal at West Brom was the standout moment for me. I felt we did well in the game and deserved to get something from it.
“We got the goal and then Dickie [Richie Smallwood] had his turn as a goalkeeper, producing some suspect movements!”
