Blackburn U23 Skipper Joins The Bluebirds!

News of a new signing for the Bluebirds!

We are delighted to welcome Blackburn U23 captain Lewis Hardcastle to the club!

The midfielder joined Rovers when he was just 6 years old and has progressed through the youth ranks at the club to become one of the mainstays of Damien Johnson’s Under-23 squad.

A combative and committed central midfielder, the 2015-16 season saw Lewis gain valuable experience with a hugely successful loan spell at then Evo-Stik Premier League North side Salford City who are of course now the Bluebirds rivals in the National League.

Last season saw the midfielder make 33 appearances for Rovers development squad, including three appearances in their Checkatrade Trophy campaign.

The young midfielder, who captains the side, appeared 18 times for Damien Johnson’s Under-23s side in 2017-18 and spent the first half of this season on loan at Port Vale.

He joins us on an initial one month youth loan.
