Paul McKay Signs Pro Contract

18 August 2014

Made In Doncaster: The Future of Rovers is here.

Rovers can confirm that youth team player Paul McKay has been offered a professional contract with the club.


The 17-year old defender has put pen to paper on his first full deal with the Club after impressing in Paul Stancliffe’s under 18’s side.


McKay, a Rovers fan, started his career with Rossington before linking up with the Rovers academy at the age of nine.


“I’m delighted, I’ve been here since I was nine, so it’s obviously a big step and a great opportunity for a young lad like myself to progress to the next level,” he said.


“I’ve spoken to Stan (Paul Stancliffe) who’s said he’s delighted as well and him being a former centre half, he’s pushed me through and helped me along.


Rovers have beaten off stiff competition from a number of established football clubs who were willing to sign the youngster, whose twin brother Jack is also on the books of the club’s promising youth side.


“We’ve got a good side that’ll hopefully be able to challenge for the title and my brother’s put in some decent performances and scored goals so we’re aiming for the title,” said McKay.


“I’ve trained a few times with the pros and he’s said I’ve done well and he’s wanted to show commitment to the club and help me develop then maybe I can get in to the first team and push on.”
