Rovers Goalkeeping Coach Ben Benson was thrilled with the record numbers who attended his recent goalkeeping evening at the Senior Training Centre.

Benson, who works closely with first team stoppers David Raya and Jayson Leutwiler, put on the sessions at the beginning of this month.

Youngsters from Under-8s level to Under-15s level attended, which thrilled the coach.

"We have ran these events for the last four years and I always explain how important we believe these evenings to be," he said.

"Year on year these events have grown bigger and bigger and we were delighted to host a record number of goalkeepers, with over 100 attendees across the year groups.

"This event has become a regular fixture for us as a goalkeeping department and we are delighted it continues to grow and grow"

"We look forward to hosting the next evening in October 2019.

"Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank both players and parents for their support, as without this we would not be able to host such events.

"I would also like to thank all the staff involved for making the night a huge success."

Keep a look out on the official website, with new goalkeeping events set to be announced in due course.
