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.

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."

Durrant follows Flavien Boyomo, Luke Brennan, Sam Burns, James Connolly, Jordan Eastham, Daniel Pike, Jalil Saadi, Isaac Whitehall and Chanka Zimba, who all signed scholarship agreements with the club at the end of last season.
