Not for the first time (he did this as a player obviously when he came back from Birmingham City) David Dunn has returned to Blackburn Rovers after a spell with Oldham Athletic.

Having got close to four hundred matches for Rovers (it would’ve been so very many more if it wasn’t for injuries) over two spells Dunn’s time at Ewood Park ended last summer when he was released by Gary Bowyer, which saw him sign for Oldham as a player.

Eventually Dunny took his first steps into management with The Latics but this lasted only twenty matches and he was sacked by the League One side in January!!

Dunny’s made another Rovers return though (which was always likely to come in some coaching capacity at some points) with the thirty six year old to work with former teammate Damien Johnson as the Under-21 assistant coach.

He told The Official Blackburn Rovers Website: “I’m delighted to be back at the club. I don’t have to say how much this club means to me. I think everyone knows what Blackburn Rovers means to me personally.

“So I’m just really looking forward to coming in and helping Damien. We have a good relationship anyway, so that should be fine and obviously I’m looking forward to learning from the manager (Paul Lambert), as well as Alan (Irvine) and Rob (Kelly), who are some of the best coaches around.

Welcome home Dunny, I couldn’t think of a better role model or player with better ability for the youngsters coming through at Brockhall to learn from than you.
