Promising young midfielder Liam Ravenhill has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with an option as he signs his first professional terms with Rovers.
The 18-year-old was just eight years old when he entered Rovers Academy and competed at every age group before making his senior debut last season replacing James Coppinger in Rovers' Emirates FA Cup victory against FC United of Manchester.
Ravenhill made his first start for the senior team three days later in a narrow 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers U21s in the Papa John’s Trophy.
He said: "I've been here for ten years and to extend it by another two years is great. I couldn't be any happier to sign my first professional contract, I just can't wait to get going.
"The two games that I played last season just makes me want to kick on now and get in and around the first team again.
“I want to be involved as much as I can whether that’s in the cups or, ideally, I want to break into the league squad, be on the bench and play as many games as I can.”
