Another Rover to come through the ranks, Tomlinson has progressed through the Under-18s and the development squad to now be on the fringes of the first team.

The combative midfielder played a starting role for the Academy in his first full season as Rovers reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup before losing out to eventual winners Chelsea.

Impressive displays saw him become one of the regulars for Damien Johnson's Under-23s, before he stepped up to the part of the first team picture over the festive period in 2016.

After a number of unused substitute appearances, the midfielder made his senior debut as a substitute in Rovers' FA Cup tie with Manchester United in February 2017.

And after having that taste of first team experience, he'll be eager for more in the new campaign.
