The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

SIMEON Jack­son has vowed to grab his chance with both hands af­ter be­ing picked up off the scrapheap by Black­burn Rovers.

Jack­son, 28, made just one start for League One Barns­ley be­fore be­ing re­leased last month – and has not scored a goal since De­cem­ber 2014.

“I’m very hun­gry to do well,” said the for­ward, who played un­der Black­burn boss Paul Lambert at Nor­wich. “I’ve had a few ups and downs in the last few years, so I’m def­i­nitely look­ing for­ward to this op­por­tu­nity.

“It has been a good two weeks com­ing in and get­ting a feel for the club, so I’m de­lighted to fi­nally put pento-pa­per now.”
