Rovers’ Academy youngsters were given an invaluable insight into what it takes to make it to the top during a Question & Answer session with star striker Jordan Rhodes.

The Scotland international, who came through the youth ranks at Ipswich, spoke openly about his grounding at Portman Road and the sacrifices he made in order to carve out a successful career.

Rovers’ Head of Academy Eric Kinder, who has lined up further first team players to visit the Academy over the coming months, said: “Jordan was the ideal person to kick off these events, as he is a terrific role model for our young players.

“He answered all of the questions really honestly and I appreciated him giving up his time to come down.”
