Former Leicester City youngster Harrison Myring was named in the starting XI as he was put through his paces in the group clash.

The 18-year-old striker was released by the Foxes at the end of the season.

He featured heavily for Leicester in the U18 Premier League last season, scoring one goal in 16 appearances and also featured in the FA Youth Cup.

Also in the Rovers line-up were senior players Ian Lawlor and Joe Wright, the latter of which is making his return to action following the knee injury which has kept him out since pre-season.
