Liam Michael Feeney-Howard (born 21 January 1987) is an English footballer who plays for Blackburn Rovers as a midfielder.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Feeney joined League One side Southend United on loan until 3 January 2009 in November 2008.[3] He made his debut after coming on as an 80th-minute substitute in a 3–0 defeat to Leicester City on 6 December.[4] He signed for Bournemouth on 2 February for an undisclosed fee.[5]

Feeney scored his first goal for Bournemouth during a 4–0 win over Rochdale.

Millwall[edit]

Feeney made his Millwall debut on 11 September 2011 against Birmingham City.[6] He was released by Millwall on 10 May 2014.

Loans[edit]

On 27 September 2013 Feeney joined Millwall's divisional rivals Bolton Wanderers on a three-month loan deal.[7][8]

He made his Bolton debut as a substitute for Lee Chung-Yong, the following day in a 1–1 draw against Yeovil Town at the Reebok Stadium.[9]

Having impressed during his short stay at the Reebok Stadium, parent-club Millwall exercised their right to activate a 28-day recall clause due to injuries in their squad, meaning an earlier than expected return to The Den.[10] He later joined Blackburn Rovers on loan in March.[11]

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

On 19 May 2014, Bolton Wanderers announced that Feeney would rejoin the club on a permanent deal once his Millwall contract had expired.[12] He made his second debut on the opening day of the new season in a 3–0 loss to Watford[13] and scored his first goals for Bolton on 4 November, scoring twice in a 3–0 home win against Cardiff City.[14] At the end of the 2015–16 season, the club confirmed that he would be leaving when his contract expired at the end of June.[15]

Ipswich Town (loan)[edit]

On 17 March 2016, Feeney signed for Ipswich Town on loan.[16] He made his Blues' debut[17] against Rotherham United, after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Blackburn Rovers[edit]

On 25 June 2016, Feeney re-signed for Blackburn Rovers; whom he was previously on loan to, on a two-year deal, with an option of a third year.[18]
