iFollow Rovers | Close buzzing to join Rovers

7 June 2021

Ben Close says he’s excited for a new challenge after joining Rovers on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old arrives from fellow Sky Bet League One side Portsmouth, and becomes Richie Wellens’ first signing as Rovers boss.

A creative midfielder with an eye for goal, Close has earned something of a reputation for himself after several long-range strikes in recent seasons.
