Pickering: "Focus Is Very Much On Crewe"

10 February 2021

He may have completed a move to the Championship but Pixie says he has unfinished business at the Alex.

Harry Pickering says that he is delighted to have resolved his future in the January transfer window, but that his move to Blackburn Rovers is now firmly on the back burner as he aims to finish the season strongly at Crewe Alexandra.

After succeeding Perry Ng as captain, the full-back has grown into the role and helped Crewe go on a 11-game unbeaten run with the armband, until Peterborough ended that amazing run at the weekend.

Pixie who has been with us since the age of 11 will join up with new team-mates at Ewood Park in the summer.

Pickering told the club’s official website: “I was pleased that the move went through and it is something to look forward to next season.

“If I am honest, I haven’t thought too much about it because I am back at Crewe on loan and it is all just normal really.

“Obviously, I knew it was a good opportunity for me to move to a massive club like Blackburn and everyone was pleased for me. The gaffer and Kenny appreciated that it was a good opportunity for me. Once it was right for the club then everyone was happy that a deal was agreed.

“I think Blackburn have players of the similar age of Crewe and they play attacking football. That was a big attraction for me but until I move in the summer then I am focussed on being here and helping us have a successful season.

He added: “It is a little bit strange that I am technically back at Crewe on loan. It is a bit weird to hear that but it is the same. I have been here since the age of 11 and it feels normal to be around the lads and train.”
