Versatile midfielder/defender Tommy Rowe joined Wolves in the summer of 2014 after a successful five years at Peterborough came to an end.

Rowe started out on schoolboy terms with Manchester United before joining Stockport County, helping the team to promotion and winning a Young Player of the Year award before joining Peterborough in May, 2009.

He scored in the 2010/11 play-off final win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford which took Posh into the Championship, and was a mainstay in the team in the subsequent two Championship seasons, including scoring at Molineux in a 3-0 victory against Wolves.

Rowe, who has been Peterborough’s captain for the last two seasons, made 43 appearances during the 2013/14 campaign which saw Peterborough reach the play-offs before being beaten over two legs by Leyton Orient.

They did win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Rowe lifting the cup at Wembley after a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.

His initial introduction at Wolves was an unfortunate one as he suffered an injury in his first pre-season friendly, against Cheltenham.

He did recover, and made a total of 14 appearances before injury struck again in the Boxing Day game at Watford.

Having recovered he headed into the 2015/16 season hoping for better fortunes and to stake a claim for regular first team football.
