Biggins confident of success after Rovers switch

19 May 2022

New signing Harrison Biggins is confident he can achieve his goal of winning silverware after joining Rovers.

The midfielder became the first signing of the summer after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club.

South Yorkshire-born Biggins had multiple options after reaching the end of his deal with Fleetwood Town but was keen to complete his switch to Rovers once learning of the interest.

“It speaks for itself when you turn up at the ground to meet people and you see the place,” he said.

“The intention this season is to get this club back into League One.

“That’s my aim, I want to be successful and I think this is the perfect place to come and get trophies.

“It’s a great feeling to get this all signed and sorted. I’m just looking forward to coming in and get cracking.

“I spoke to the gaffer, spoke to Copps and everything has gone really smoothly.”

Biggins revealed he received a glowing endorsement from Fleetwood team mates and ex-Rovers defenders Brad Halliday and Danny Andrew before finalising his move to the Eco-Power Stadium.

He said: “Once I’d heard about the interest I spoke to Dan and Brad and they both spoke so highly of the club and the people around it.

“It made me want to get sorted pretty quickly.”

The 26-year-old believes he will provide energy to the Rovers midfield and is determined to add goals to the side.

“I’m an energetic, box-to-box player,” he said. “Last season I started getting beyond the striker more and adding goals to my game which is something I really want to build on, getting forward and getting into the box.

“I think my work ethic speaks for itself. You’ll see that’ll never drop. If the full team do that then you can be successful.”
