Jack O'Connell and Jamie Maclaren set for international duty.

Rovers Reserve players Jack O'Connell and Jamie Maclaren have both been called up for their respective countries.

The England's Under-19s will have a Rovers representative for their forthcoming European qualifiers after Reserve-team captain O'Connell was named in Noel Blake's 18-man squad. 

England have three games in the Estonian capital of Tallin. Where they'll face the Faroe Islands, Ukraine and host nation Estonia.

England's first match is against the hosts on September 26th, followed by the Faroes two days later, ending their qualifying round against Ukraine on October 1st.

Raheem Hanley could also join the traveling party having been named on standby.

Also back in the international fold is Jamie Maclaren. The Rovers forward has been included in Paul Okon's Australian Under-20 squad for a training camp in Portugal next month.

They then follow that with two AFC Qualifiers against the United Arab Emirates on October 28th and November 17th.
