Captain Tom Anderson signs new Rovers deal

28 February 2023

Rovers are delighted to confirm that captain Tom Anderson has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract.

The 29-year-old has committed his future to the club until the summer of 2025.

“I’m very pleased to finally get it sorted,” he said. “It’s been on-going for the last couple of months so I’m happy to get it over the line.

“It’s a big relief. I’ve had a difficult year with the injuries and you’re always wondering what is going to happen - if you’re going to stay or go somewhere else.

“Now I can just focus on the future over the next two-and-a-half years and try to take the club where it belongs.”

Head coach Danny Schofield said: “For the club, the rest of the players and of course Tom himself, it’s fantastic.

“I think it’s thoroughly deserved. He’s someone we’ve identified that we want to be at the club for a long time and to grow what we’re trying to do around him.”

Anderson first joined Rovers on loan from boyhood club Burnley in January 2018 before making a permanent switch in the summer.

He has made 173 appearances for the club so far, scoring ten goals.
