Danny Amos says it has been a whirlwind 12 months for him as he reflects on his first professional season with Rovers.
Amos, who made his Rovers debut in 2016, started his first league game for the club against Oldham Athletic in April and he feels his hard work is starting to pay off.
“It’s been an unbelievable season for me, I had the time away with Northern Ireland under 19’s and then when I came back from that, I said to myself that I then wanted to go on and get my chance in the first-team,” he said.
“Making my league debut topped everything off for me, it’s been a big season for me and now it’s come along and I’m so proud of myself, for my friends, my family and even for the youth team lads as well.
“The gaffer has given a lot of debuts this season, from the start of pre-season to now, where he’s given some of the youth team lads their opportunity to play against the likes of Sunderland and Scunthorpe, and that helps everyone kick on.”
Amos spent time on-loan at non-league side Buxton during the season, and he feels that helped him make the transition into senior football for the first time.
“As an individual I would like to be involved more around the squad, I’m ready to play when the gaffer needs me, the injuries haven’t helped us this season, but the game time out at Buxton has helped me to be ready for now,” he added.
“It’s all been a huge learning curve this season, and hopefully next season will be even better, the spell I had at Buxton was good, I played every game whilst I was there, and I scored in a derby in my last game which was great.
“We haven’t got too many bodies across the defence, there’s always a great chance for the young lads and ones that don’t necessarily start to come in, and the development games we have really help as well.”
