Doncaster Rovers midfielder Liam Ravenhill signs new deal
Midfielder Liam Ravenhill has signed a two-year deal with Doncaster Rovers, his first professional contract.
The 18-year-old – whose deal contains the option for a further 12 months – is looking to continue his progress next season after making his senior debut last term in the FA Cup triumph over FC United of Manchester.
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.”
Ravenhill – son of former Rovers midfielder Ricky – started the defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers U21s in the Papa John’s Trophy and was involved around the senior squad for much of the first half of last season.
During the latter months of the campaign he returned to the U18s bubble but is now a fully fledged senior pro after emerging from his two years as a scholar.
