Lewis Hardcastle Joins On A Permanent Deal!

News of a big signing for the Bluebirds!

We are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Lewis Hardcastle from Blackburn Rovers!

The promising young midfielder joins on an initial deal until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Born in Atherton, the 20 year old has been at Blackburn for his whole youth career and was a mainstay in their U23 side before joining the Bluebirds on loan earlier this year.

A combative and attacking midfielder, he benefited from a loan spell at Salford City a few seasons ago, as well as one at Port Vale earlier this season.

He made 33 appearances for Blackburn’s development team last term, including 3 appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy, and captained the side before joining us on loan.

Hardcastle has impressed in his loan spell with us, leading to a permanent deal being confirmed this morning.

Welcome (permanently), Lewis!
