Andrew Moran has scored 17 goals in 47 appearances for our under-21s.

Andrew Moran has joined Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan.

Technical director David Weir said, “Andrew is really highly thought of here – he has been a key player for the under-21s in the last year and that has seen him be involved in the first team.

“The next step for him though is to get regular minutes in senior football and we’re confident he’s ready to test himself in the Championship.

“We will be keeping a close eye on his progress throughout the season.”

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international joined us from Bray Wanderers in 2020, playing a key role in our Under-17 Premier League Cup final win the following year.

Having progressed through the academy, he made his first team debut in a 2-0 win over Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup in 2021, before making his first Premier League appearance in the 4-1 victory at Everton in January this year.

He signed a new four-year deal in April.
