Rovers are pleased to have secured the signature of promising youngster Sam Durrant from Liverpool. The 16-year-old, who was coveted by a number of other clubs, has signed a two-year scholarship, plus a one-year professional contract and a further one-year club option.

A creative midfielder, with a keen eye for goal, Durrant spent six years at Everton before being bought by Merseyside rivals Liverpool four years ago. The talented teenager will join up with his new team-mates at Rovers' Academy on July 1st.

“It’s great, because I believe I’ve got an opportunity here and it’s a great chance for me to progress as a player and as a person," said the new Rovers scholar.

“This club provides opportunities for young players to progress and play first team football and hopefully that’s something I can do. “There are some great players and some good people to work with here, so that can only make me a better player. “I can’t wait to get going and settle in."
