The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Luke Baker

HARRY Chap­man is hop­ing to help fire Black­burn Rovers back to the Cham­pi­onship af­ter join­ing on loan from Mid­dles­brough.

The 19-year-old winger helped Sh­effield United in their pro­mo­tion push from League One last sea­son –he did the same the sea­son be­fore with Barns­ley – and is hop­ing to leave his mark at Ewood Park.

“It’s a mas­sive club,” said the Eng­land Un­der-20 World Cup win­ner.

“They shouldn’t be in this league. They need to get back to where they be­long, up the top, and I’m here to help out. I can’t wait to get started.

“It would be un­be­liev­able if I could do three out of three and, with the squad we’ve got here, I don’t see why we can’t.”

The op­por­tu­nity to work with former Boro boss Tony Mow­bray was an­other big fac­tor in Chap­man’s de­ci­sion to make the switch to Lan­cashire.

He added: “When I was in the academy at Mid­dles­brough, he was there.

“I’ve talked to the lads who are still there and they’ve all per­suaded me, say­ing he’ll get the best out of you and that’s what I need.”

HUN­GRY: Harry Chap­man
