     A lively winger who liked to keep wide and cross the ball, he made an impression with Dundee United and as a consequence was capped for Scotland. He took advantage of his contract running out, to join Cardiff who he helped to promotion to the Premier League, When Cardiff strengthened for the higher division he realized his opportunities would be limited and after a loan spell at Brighton, he joined the Rovers. His parents owned a high class hairdressers in Kilmarnock and on leaving school Conway trained to be a hairdresser. Although he had lost pace he proved a pleasant surprise at Ewood, the quality of his crossing providing opportunities for Rhodes and Gestede that had been in short supply. He was also a superb team man, who did not lose the ball, could run the ball out of defence and always  sought to help his full-back.
