Rovers would like to congratulate youngster Joseph McCormick, who scooped the Young Player of the Year award for the academy.

Youth team head of development Paul Wilson said, “It’s great for Joseph, the way he’s come through over the years. He’s a promising young player, as this award shows, and for him to win ahead of his peers is a terrific achievement. We have hopes for him to develop and hope he shows that progression in future years.”
