Rovers to continue youth policy

Published Add your comment

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean is delighted with the quality the club's youth academy has produced.

The likes of Martin Olsson and Phil Jones, who is expected to complete a move to Manchester United this summer, have come through the academy at Ewood Park.

And Kean says that young players will be given a go in the first team in the future.

"I think that is certainly a thread that we are going to try and run through the whole club," Kean told the Rovers website.


"I had a good meeting with Phil Cannon our Academy manager.

"We've got promotion from the youth ranks coming through and up into the Reserves and that is something we'd like to continue.

"If any of the Academy lads are good enough, it doesn't matter what their age is, they'll be pulled up to the Senior Training Centre and they'll train up here with us.

"That is something that I will always push for - to get the young guys coming through and being a massive part of the club."
