"He’s like a big brother figure for me," says Harry Chapman when discussing his close relationship with team-mate Danny Graham.
The pair both live in the north-east and come to and from training together, sometimes with another Rover in the form of Richie Smallwood.
Chapman, who appeared towards the back end of the season at champions Norwich City and then at home to Swansea City, is already looking forward to car sharing with the striker again, once pre-season comes back around later this month.
“Danny was happy for me to come back because he can car share with me," he said when discussing his return to Rovers back in January.
“We take turns driving in. We live near each other so I’d drive in one day and then he’d drive the other.
“Danny’s dead hyper even at 7.30am. I’d try and get half an hour’s sleep and he’ll be shouting and screaming.
“I don’t even try and sleep nowadays as I know it’s coming!
“We talk a lot. We have a two-hour drive in and we either talk about nothing, have a laugh and a joke or get serious about football.
“He watches Game of Thrones and he talks about that a lot. I’ve never seen it but he reckons it’s really good. We talk about each other’s family and he’s like a big brother figure for me.
“I really look up to him and I’d consider him to be one of my best mates."
