YT Scholars Announced

7 February 2016

#MadeInDoncaster continues its recent success.

Doncaster Rovers are delighted to announce that EIGHT aspiring footballers have been granted scholarships with the Youth Team.


It is another proud moment in the history of the Rovers Academy and the players were duly presented to the Keepmoat Stadium crowd at half time during the game against Walsall.

Congratulations go to the following individuals and their families, as we give you an insight in to the potential of the boys.


"Bingley has made two starts already for the Youth Team this season and is a born winner. There are times when his sheer desire is enough."
Kane Bingley – Defender – Signed 13/02/15


"A left footed midfielder, Fletcher’s use on the ball was enough to see him make a couple of squad appearances for the Youth Team well before his years."
Jacob Fletcher – Midfielder – Signed 26/11/12


"Morgan’s versatility sets him out as having great promise. The recent acquisition can play almost anywhere across the middle or at right back."
Morgan James – Midfielder – Signed 14/11/15


"The pacy Morris has been used in the Youth Team set up more than any other U16. A physical presence, Morris’ progression – with four appearances and four unused sub appearances – is of real interest."
James Morris – Striker – Signed 21/09/11


"Can flit between the left of midfield or an attacking role with ease and is more than capable of playing with players older than him."
Matthew Overton – Midfielder – Signed 12/10/11


"Prior is left footed and has the defensive ability and pace to play at either full back or wing back."
Cody Prior – Defender – Signed 01/09/14


"Having been at the club for close to half his life, Scattergood is all too familiar with the Keepmoat surrounds and coaching set up. There are high hopes for the centre forward who retains ball well."
Lewis Scattergood - Striker – Signed 11/09/08


"A big centre half by trade, Townrow has been involved with the U18’s on four occasions, showing how highly thought of he is."
Keegan Townrow – Defender – Signed 17/09/13


Academy Manager Paul Wilson, who has seen the rise of Harry Middleton, Mitchell Lund and Liam Mandeville in to the first team, said: “It’s great for everyone associated with the club to see these boys make the step up to the next level in terms of their development.


“It means a lot to them, their friends and family and ourselves – in particular the coaches who have worked with some of the boys from the age of 8 onwards.


“They’ve shown terrific effort and commitment to be rewarded in this way and will always be supported by their families and the coaches and staff at the club.”
