Ryan Nyambe insists he is working hard every day to improve his all-round game, after putting pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal with the club.

Despite being only 21, the young full-back is closing in on 100 appearances for the club, having made his Rovers debut in August 2015 at the age of 17.

Promising youngsters John Buckley, Dan Butterworth and Tyler Magloire have all featured for the first team in recent weeks and Nyambe believes there is an exciting crop of Academy graduates coming through the Rovers ranks.

With 97 games under his belt, the reliable right-back no longer sees himself as one of the newcomers in the group, but he admits he still has lots to learn.   

"I'm like the middle child!” joked Nyambe, who joined the club at the age of 13.

“The young lads coming through are great. We've got some good youth players coming through, which is great for the club and it's great for their careers.

"It's crazy to be honest, because it wasn't that long ago that I was in that position. Seeing them coming through, it's like seeing myself back in the day.

“As a young player, you never know when you’re opportunity is going to come and you just have to take it.

“When it came, I took my chance and over the years I’ve gained more experience and now I’ve just got to keep going and keep working on my game.

"To have played almost 100 games gives me confidence going forward in my career, because you need to learn a lot at a young age and it's going to help me a lot when I'm at my peak.

"There's still a lot more to come from me. I'm out every day after training working with David Lowe, doing extra sessions, and trying to better myself. I’m constantly working on improving my end product.”
