Liam Ravenhill has been called up to Northern Ireland U21s squad for their UEFA U21 European Championship qualifying matches.
The 17-year-old midfielder joined up with Rovers team-mate Danny Amos and the rest of the squad on Wednesday after receiving the news of the late call-up on Tuesday evening following the conclusion of the EFL Trophy match against Oldham Athletic.
Manager Darren Moore said: “Everyone at the club is absolutely delighted for Liam. It’s an incredible achievement for someone so young to be receiving international recognition at that level.
“Congratulations have to go to his family, the Academy coaches and most important Liam himself for all the hard work he has put in and continues to put in.
“He’s got wonderful ability and attitude and this opportunity will do wonders for Liam’s development as a player. The call up is further testament to the talent we have here at Doncaster Rovers Academy.”
U18s manager Paul Stancliffe added: “This is an amazing achievement for Liam. To be called up for international duty with the U21 squad at the age of 17 shows the kind of quality we have in Liam.
“His talent and potential is there for all to see and his work ethic both in training and during games is unbelievable. He has really worked hard for this opportunity and we are delighted for him.
“It doesn’t surprise me to see him getting this kind of attention. He is another exciting talent that has emerged out of our Academy over the last few seasons.”
