Out On Loan
at Shrewsbury Town


Harry Chapman




Date of birth






Back for more, Harry Chapman signed for Rovers on a permanent deal from Middlesbrough in the January 2019 transfer window.

The flying flanker impressed during a loan stint at Ewood Park during the 2017-18 campaign, appearing 16 times in all competitions before a hamstring injury ended his season prematurely.

The 22-year-old winger, who has won promotion from League One in each of the last three seasons, helped England's Under-20s lift the coveted trophy in South Korea back in the summer of 2017.

An unused substitute for the final against Venezuela, Chapman featured in the group game against Guinea and was an important member of Paul Simpson’s squad.

The World Cup win capped off a superb 2016-17 season for Chapman, who enjoyed a successful loan spell with Sheffield United, scoring four goals in 14 appearances, including a hat-trick in a 6-0 FA Cup victory over Leyton Orient, as the Blades lifted the League One title.

The previous season, the highly-rated teenager impressed on loan at Barnsley, netting once in 14 outings, as the Tykes won the Football League Trophy and also secured promotion to the Championship via the play-offs.

Just a few months into the season, a hamstring injury picked up against Wigan Athletic resulted in Chapman being ruled out of action until possibly March or April 2018, before the telented flanker returned to East Lancashire in January 2019.

Chapman had a frustrating first 18 months back as a permanent Rover, but earned game time in the 2020-21 pre-season, scoring an excellent goal in the 4-1 win over Fleetwood Town in the first game of the summer.

But with limited minutes for the first team in the first half of 2020-21, a January move saw Chapman link up with Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan until the end of the season.
