I'm learning all the time, says Travis

“I’ll never get rid of the energy, that’s something I think the gaffer likes about me"

13 May 2019

Lewis Travis has had quite a 2019, but says he's still learning on the job when it comes to his central midfield role.

The youngster played 31 times for Rovers during the season just gone, with 23 of those games coming after Christmas, when he really nailed down a spot in Tony Mowbray's first team.
 
The 21-year-old ended his breakthrough campaign in the senior team with a first goal, which came at eventual champions Norwich City at the end of April.
 
And discussing his season to iFollow Rovers, Travis expects to see improvement in himself next term.
 
“You always have to stay positive and keep the mindset right when you’re out of the team," he admitted when reflecting on the frustrations of not playing at the beginning of the season.
 
"I took it week by week and still do now.
 
“When I first got into the first team I think I was chasing the ball a bit too much. I went through things with Veno [Mark Venus], Lowey [David Lowe] and the gaffer.
 
“I’ve worked on what I need to improve on, worked on the grass and put it into play.
 
“I’ll never get rid of the energy, that’s something I think the gaffer likes about me. The exuberance will never leave me.
 
“It’s been a great last few months, not just for me, but for the club as well. We’ve stayed in the league but the disappointment was that bad run in February and March.
 
“What we have as a squad, we’re more than capable of getting out of this league, so that’s what we have to do next season."
