Blackburn Hawk’s coaches and management are pleased to announce the signing of Luke Boothroyd to the Hawks.  Luke is an extremely talented defense man who brings many years of EPL experience with him.  Luke has spent over ten years playing in the English Premier League, which for the most was spent in a Manchester Phoenix jersey.  Luke Played for Manchester Phoenix since 2008 and has been their captain since 2009 up until last season when they sadly folded.  We are looking forward to having Luke in the team and having his natural leadership within the club.

Head coach Steven Duncombe had this to say.

“When I found out Luke was available I knew I had to make him a priority signing. Luke has many years experience in the EPL, where he has captained the Manchester Phoenix. He is a natural leader who knows how to win games. I can’t wait to work with him next season. British players are going to be key to our success next season and in my eyes I have signed the best British defender in the league”

After Speaking with Luke towards the latter end of last week he had this to say.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing games at Blackburn, always had good crowds and strong teams.

Going to be a competitive league and looking forward to helping Blackburn be a legitimate top team in the league with the goal to win trophies to continue Blackburn’s success in this league.

I’ve played with a number of present and former Blackburn players who have always said good things about playing there so it was an easy decision to sign in Blackburn.

Looking forward to getting going in September!”




See you all in September
