Who Is Blackburn Rovers Centre-half Matthew Pearson


David Holdsworth is eager to counter the blow, dealt by the departure of Richard Hind, by signing Blackburn Rovers reserve Mattew Pearson following a successful trial.

Matt is a big strong 18-year-old 6 foot centre-half,  a natural leader and a great reader of the game. His composure belies his age and were it not for a  leg fracture earlier this season, that kept him sidelined until October, he would have added to that  England U18 debut – a fine 3-0 win over Poland.


Matt has been at Ewood Park since the age of 10 and progressed through the academy to earn his first pro deal in August.   Don’t be surprised to see him on the score sheet either, a one-in-5 ratio for the Rovers reserves is pretty impressive given the company he would have to keep
