Danny Amos says manager Darren Moore’s trust in the younger members of the senior squad is a massive boost to his confidence.
The Northern Irish youth international has been involved in match-day squads so far this season and he is eager to keep impressing in training to try and earn his chance in the team.
“The gaffer really trusts everyone to do well in the team, and I think that’s good for players like myself, Shane Blaney, AJ Greaves, ones that have been in and around the match-day squad, and that’s a massive boost for us,” he said.
“The manager and Jamie Smith have been excellent with us, hopefully now I can keep improving, keep working hard to try and impress them, and you never know when that opportunity may come around.
“I’m only 19 so I know I still have a bit to learn, the lads in the first team are doing well and the standards are really high, I just want to keep pushing in training every day and work hard to try and earn that chance.”
Amos spent part of last season on loan at National League side Hartlepool United and has also been heavily involved with the development squad back in Doncaster, and the young left-back feels the new structure in place is something that will help his progression.
“Obviously I’ve been involved with the under-23 squad this season and I think that has really helped my development in such a short space of time, it’s all really starting to come together nicely,” he added.
“I’ve worked closely with Gary McSheffrey, John Schofield and Tony Cook and they’re all working well to help the younger lads improve their game, I’ve already seen a huge benefit in having this development squad.
“We have a proper structure in place here which is great, we have our own schedule which helps us to get the best out of what is available to us, there’s a few lads in there now looking to push towards the first team.”
