Bluebirds Capture Rovers Midfielder

News of a new signing for the Bluebirds!

We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Blackburn Rovers midfielder Tom White on an initial deal until January.

The 22-year-old joined Rovers from National League side Gateshead on a two-year deal in the summer of 2019.

White started his career in the same boys club as Adam Armstrong, before completing his scholarship with Carlisle United.

He then joined Gateshead at the age of 18, before gaining first team experience on loan at the likes of Spennymoor, West Aukland, Ashington and Scarborough, where he won promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier in 2018.

A combative and ball-playing midfielder, White made over 40 appearances for Gateshead last season and gained international honours with England C – earning caps against Wales and Estonia.

He is eligible for our trip to Notts County tomorrow and will wear the number 18 shirt.

Welcome, Tom!
