Just Happy To Play

New boy has no preference

Tommy Rowe admits he doesn’t mind where he plays in his new challenge at Wolves – he will always give his all.

The 25-year-old has impressed both at left back and left midfield in his career to date, and while Head Coach Kenny Jackett is keen to consider him in the more advanced of the two positions, Rowe’s versatility will certainly come in handy.

He can also add some leadership to a team already featuring the likes of skipper Samuel Ricketts, having been captain at Peterborough for the last two seasons.

“I’ve played left back and left wing in my career and have been something of a utility player at times if there are injuries,” says Rowe.

“I’ve always just looked at working hard and giving my all and if I do that again at Wolves then hopefully I will get picked.

“I’ve always been happy just being in the team and have never really said I’d like to play in one particular position.

“I scored nine goals last season which was good and I do like to get forward wherever I am playing.

“I like to create chances as well but can certainly track back and concentrate on the defensive side of the game as well.

“Hopefully I can find my feet and really enjoy it here at Wolves.

“I had an initial chat with the gaffer just about football and where I’m comfortable and where he sees me fitting in.

“All that went really well and now I’m looking forward to pre-season and coming back as fit as I can be.

“I’ve always worked hard and tried to play as many games as I can and both Stockport and Peterborough gave me those opportunities.

“I am a very honest player who gives my all and hopefully I can continue to show that this year.

“I was a young lad at Peterborough when I joined and grew with the team.

“Eventually the manager saw me as a player who could be a captain and relate to the young players whilst also having a bit of experience.

“Unfortunately we were relegated in my first year as captain after working so hard to keep our Championship status.”

Rowe is currently awaiting the birth of his second child before being able to fully focus on returning for pre-season with Wolves later this month.

And one area he is particularly looking forward to is playing in front of the Wolves fans who he has seen in good voice when playing against the team in recent seasons.

“I can’t wait to play in front of the fans,” he said.

“I have played at Molineux a few times and the atmosphere is always spectacular.

“To have those fans behind me now is something I am really looking forward to.

“It’s going to be a busy summer as we’re expecting our second child but I’m then looking forward to getting back here, getting settled and starting afresh for the new season.”
