Whitehouse Signs Up

26 June 2015

Doncaster born Billy Whitehouse signs up for two more years.

Doncaster Rovers winger Billy Whitehouse follows youngster Mitchell Lund and has today signed a two year contract with the club.
 
Whitehouse has been a Rovers player for 7 years, having joined the Academy in 2008 and is delighted to be staying at the club.

“I'm delighted. Obviously two-years is quiet a long time for a young lad and it's a good time for me to develop now and hopefully push for the first team.

"Last season was a real learning curve for me especially making a few appearances for the first team but I really want to kick on now and get a few more appearances over the next two years.

"I didn't real expect to be involved at all if I'm honest but to have played some games against some good teams, especially MK Dons that was probably the hardest game I've played in.

The young winger was a regular feature in Rob Jones’ Development squad last season, who finished second in the Final Third Development League.

"Those games are really important. It's a good learning curve as you are up against some first team players who are coming back from injury or not getting as much first team as they'd like.

"Jonah [Rob Jones] is going to be straight with you and he isn't going to tell you that you've played well when you haven't. 

"The aim now is to get as many appearances as I can, I've just turned 19 and I have learnt a lot from the likes of Harry Forrester and Copps.

"Now I want to do what they are doing on a weekly basis and try and push on and get a regular first team place."
