Rowe relishing next chapter

New signing Tommy Rowe is looking forward to working under Lee Johnson, having been managed by the City head coach’s father Gary Johnson in the past.

Johnson senior, a former Robins manager himself who led Torquay United to promotion from the Vanarama South last season, took the reins at Peterborough United between April 2010 and January 2011, which coincided with Rowe’s five-year spell at the club.

Rowe developed in the Manchester United Academy before his career took him to Stockport County and the Posh. He went on to join Wolves, was loaned to Scunthorpe United before he joined Doncaster Rovers and he has since completed his switch to BS3.

The versatile, left-sided player said: “They (Lee and Gary) share similar working traits which for me is good because I got on well with his dad. We’ve discussed that and I’ve looked forward to coming here having seen what his dad was like as a manger first-hand, so I look forward to learning how the training sessions and everything will be.”

Rowe, 30, now joins his new teammates for another demanding season ahead.

“It’s a bit daunting meeting so many new people but it’s an experience!” he said. “It’s exciting coming to Bristol City, it’s great and something new. I’m looking forward to getting into training and it’s good to be getting into football, back to what I love doing.

“It’s exciting after fixture release day, the games look amazing. Pre-season is always tough but you come back int a society where you’re excited to be getting back into it.”

Rowe has twice won promotion with Stockport County and Peterborough United, respectively, while he also led the Posh to their first major honour - the Football League Trophy in 2014.

He arrived in BS3 having put pen to paper on a two-year contract.
