Blackburn prospect Judge delighted with first team chance

Blackburn Rovers teenage midfielder Alan Judge is relishing the chance to work with Paul Ince's senior squad.

After making his senior bow in the pre-season friendly win over Macclesfield Town last Monday, Judge is now focused on being part of Ince's first-team squad on a regular basis.

He told Rovers' website: "My aim for the season is to be involved, maybe get on the bench and hopefully get five or ten minutes in the first team. We'll see how it goes, it depends on how we do in the league and we'll take it from there."

With the ability to play in the centre on the park, out wide and even further forward up front, Judge is hoping that his versatility will help him realise his ambition of playing Premier League football.

"It could help me because I can play in midfield, and at the end of last year I was playing up front," added Judge. "But I'll play wherever the gaffer sees fit to play me. I'd like to play where I did at the end of last year, just off the front man as I was scoring goals, I was very happy to play there but I'll play wherever he wants me to play."
