Are you a future Rovers number one?

The latest dates for our goalkeeping evenings have now been revealed!

17 October 2019

Do you know someone who can be the next Christian Walton? Is there a youngster who looks like a real prospect when playing in goal in the back garden?

If so, why not get them down to open evenings with Rovers' first team Goalkeeping Coach Ben Benson?

Over the last couple of seasons, the club hosted a number of goalkeeping open evenings which were attended by 60 aspiring stoppers.

Ben was delighted to see those high attendance figures, with the 28-year-old hopeful of seeing youngsters come through to represent Rovers in years to come.

And we're doing the same again, with dates now revealed for the next batch of sessions with Ben.

Date: Tuesday 29th October
Age groups: Under-9s to Under-11s
Venue: Senior Training Centre - indoor pitch
Time: 6pm – 7.30pm

Date: Thursday 31st October
Age groups: Under-12s to Under-15s
Venue: Senior Training Centre - indoor pitch
Time: 6pm – 7.30pm

"The evenings over the years have been very well attended, so hopefully we'll have similar numbers again," Benson said.
 
"We try and host these events twice a year and we are continually seeing new and old faces which is testament to the importance of the evenings.
 
"We place great emphasis on academy players at this football club and we see these evenings as a great way to continue the development of goalkeepers in our local area."
