Rovers’ newest recruit Harrison Biggins has more than 120 career appearances to his name.
Here we break down the Sheffield-born midfielder’s journey so far, right up to putting pen to paper at the Eco-Power Stadium.
Biggins came through the ranks across South Yorkshire with Barnsley. With opportunities limited at Oakwell his time with the Reds came to an end and he left to pursue his career elsewhere.
Stocksbridge Park Steels:
A club famed for the part they played in the rise of Jamie Vardy, Biggins took the plunge into non-league in a bid to establish himself in men’s football.
Having left Barnsley at the age of 18, the energetic midfielder found a home with the Steels.
He spent three seasons in non-league and continued to improve year on year, collecting several individual awards as well as earning praise from those playing with and against him.
Following an impressive spell with Stocksbridge, Biggins joined the Cod Army in 2017, with Uwe Rosler the man in charge at that stage. Although he initially joined their development squad, he made his first-team debut for the Cod Army in November 2017 - an EFL Trophy tie against Carlisle United.
He made 40 appearances across his first two seasons at Highbury, and scored his first goal for the club against former side Barnsley in September 2018.
Biggins joined Sky Bet League Two newcomers Barrow on a six-month loan deal at the start of the 2020/21 campaign, and impressed enough to feature 10 times for Fleetwood once he had returned to his parent club.
His final season on the Fylde coast was his most productive, with five goals coming in 37 appearances throughout the campaign. He now joins Rovers as Gary McSheffrey’s first signing of the summer transfer window.
