Exciting times ahead

The boss believes his young squad will have benefitted from the season just gone in the Championship

13 May 2019

Tony Mowbray believes his young side will have benefitted greatly from the 2018-19 campaign, and insists his attacking players can be a "menace" for opponents next term.

The likes of Lewis Travis, Joe Rothwell, Bradley Dack and David Raya all played regular football in the Championship for the first time in their careers during the season just gone.
 
And Mowbray believes the future looks bright in blue-and-white, admitting that the 2018-19 campaign has been a real learning curve for a number of you young stars.
 

“I think the fans should be quite excited about the team that’s emerging," the boss told iFollow Rovers.

"When you look at the team that finished the game against Swansea, we had Harry Chapman, Adam Armstrong, Bradley Dack, Jacob Davenport, Joe Rothwell and Lewis Travis. Darragh Lenihan and Amari’i Bell are both still young guys.

“These are athletic, young, good footballers and I think if we can keep teaching them the game then I think the future looks bright.

“We have a bright young team, a young team that when you break things down, we do have some exciting players in our squad.
 
“If they can stay focussed and fit, they can be a menace for teams in this league.
 
“I never mentioned the likes of Buckley, Butterworth, Magloire, either. Dack and Lenihan are still only young guys. It’s a bright, athletic team that we have here.
 
“They will improve, but they still need to learn the game in terms of decision making, when to pass and when not to pass.
 
“They’ll go away, enjoy the summer and come back ready for next season."
