Louis Jones is eyeing a place in Rovers first team after securing a two year deal at the club in the summer.
The 21-year-old goalkeeper joined the club at 12 years old and says that making a first team appearance for his hometown club would be a dream come true.
“I’m really happy to be staying at Rovers,” he said.
“I’ve been at the club since I was 12 and then started as a full-time scholar at 15 or 16. Being born and raised in Doncaster, obviously I want to break into the team and play for my hometown club. That’s a big aspiration of mine.
“I’m not that young anymore and the sooner you can start getting first-team games the better but the coaches have all said to me it’s in my own hands. As long as I do what I need to do – train hard and work hard and take my chances when they come and then see where I can go from there.”
Jones has been working closely with goalkeeping coach Paul Gerrard over the past five years and is looking forward to continuing that relationship.
“It’s a really important stage for me in my career so I’m very happy to be at Doncaster. I work really well with Gez and all the staff that are there putting their faith in me,” he added.
“Gez is brilliant. When I came in in the youth team compared to where I am now, the difference is massive. He’s taught me everything that I know and we get on really well. A lot of the time now, I feel like we’re on the same wave length.
“I know what he’s going to say before he says it – we have a good connection and a really good understanding. Gez loves working hard and that’s something I like doing as well.”
