Defender Danny Amos says the experience he will get while on loan at Evo-Stik Premier Division side Buxton will be beneficial to his development as a footballer.
The Northern Ireland U19 player made his debut for the Bucks at the weekend in a 2-1 loss against Barwell, but Amos says the guidance from former Rovers players who are at the club will be invaluable.
“The pitch weren’t the greatest to be honest on Saturday, but it’s good experience for me to go out and play men’s football, to be honest we should have won the game,” he said.
“There are some former Rovers players there such as Jan Budtz, Ricky Ravenhill and Tim Ryan who is the assistant manager, so I know I will be in good hands.
“It’s been an amazing season for me, being in the squad for Arsenal, then the call up for Northern Ireland, then securing my professional deal and then getting a full 90 minutes of first-team football.”
As part of the loan deal Amos is still available to play for Rovers’ development side, the defender made a goal-scoring return to the team in a 1-1 draw against Rotherham United at Cantley Park.
“The first 20 minutes of the game got away from us a little bit, but after that we were in control. We started using our stronger players and worked very hard up top," he added.
“Alfie May is trying to claim it was his goal but it was definitely my goal, we have been working hard on getting crosses into the box, and thankfully that worked for us in the game.
“The development games are a massive boost for us, you are playing against more senior professionals, for example Port Vale who put a very strong team out with a squad that have played over 1,000 league appearances.”
