Do you know someone who can be the next David Raya? Is there a youngster who looks like a real prospect when playing in goal in the back garden?

If so, why not get them down to open evenings with Rovers' first team Goalkeeping Coach Ben Benson?

At the beginning of 2018, the club hosted a number of goalkeeping open evenings which were attended by 60 aspiring stoppers.

Ben was delighted to see those high attendance figures, with the 27-year-old hopeful of seeing youngsters come through to represent Rovers in years to come.

And we're doing the same again, with dates now revealed for the next batch of sessions with Ben.

Date: Friday 7th September
Age groupsUnder-8s to Under-11s
Venue: Senior Training Centre - indoor pitch
Time: 6pm-6.50pm

Date: Friday 7th September

Benson joined Rovers in 2015 and has been a factor in the development of number one Raya, and he hopes he'll see youngsters following in the footsteps of the Spanish stopper in future years.

"It was great to see so many goalkeepers in attendance last time out," Benson said.
"We try and host these events twice a year and we are continually seeing new and old faces which is testament to the importance of the evenings itself.
"We place great emphasis on academy players at this football club and we see these evenings as a great way to continue the development of goalkeepers in our local area."
