Rovers beat a host of other clubs to the signature of Jack O'Connell in the summer of 2011-12 and in his first season with the club he certainly didn't disappoint.
A strong commanding centre-half, Jack went on to make 35 appearances for the Academy and Reserves in an outstanding first year that saw him play a key role as Rovers reach the final of both the FA Youth Cup and the Academy League.
The following season Jack spent time on loan with both League Two sides Rotherham United and York City, and at the start of the 2013-14 campaign the young defender joined Rochdale on loan for the first half of the season.
Strong displays have seen the defender gain international recognition with both England's Under-18 and Under-19 squads.
Joined Rochdale on loan a the beginning of 2013-14 until January 2014.
