Ben had to initially bide his time for his chance to make his mark in his first year with the Rovers Academy.

A versatile footballer who can play across midfield and also further forward, he featured 13 times for the Under-18s, scoring on two occasions.

He took that fine form into the 2017-18 season, and after making his Under-23s debut as a substitute against Norwich City, he followed that up a week later with his first start at Sevelopment Squad level in a 4-0 win over Fulham.

Ben joined Rovers at Under-16s level from Brampton Blasts Under-15s in Canada and before that he was with Kitchener Soccer Club.

The talented youngster has had his injury issues in recent campaigns, but he'll be aiming to show his best form during the second half of the 2020-21 term.
