The fate of Harrison Myring as his initial contract at Doncaster Rovers ends

Young forward Harrison Myring will be helped through his recovery from injury by Doncaster Rovers despite his contract with the club expiring.

The 18-year-old signed a short term deal with Rovers after impressing on trial but that contract ceased at the end of January.

The former Leicester City trainee suffered an ankle injury in his final game for Rovers U23s - after completing his recovery from another injury which blighted his early time at the Keepmoat.

Though he will be out of action for a couple of months, Rovers boss Darren Moore says it is the club’s duty of care to help him back to fitness.

“Harrison has sustained an ankle injury which is going to keep him out for about six weeks,” Moore said.

“What we’re doing is rehabilitating him now. He’ll spend some time with our medical team and he’s made huge strides already.

“We’ll also send him down to utilise the facilities at St George’s Park as well. He’ll spend a couple of weeks down there as well to get him back up to speed.

“We envisage it’s going to be about six weeks.

“His contract is up but we still have a duty of care for the boy in terms of making sure he’s rehabilitated and we’ll continue that and make sure he is fit and gets back to where he was.”

Once Myring returns to fitness, Moore would not rule out taking another look at the youngster - but did not commit to it either.

He said: “At the moment he’s out of contract but he’ll still be part of us as a football club and we’ll make sure we get him right and back up to speed.”

Pacy and powerful forward Myring impressed for Rovers U23s in the Premier League Cup clash with Portsmouth while on trial and earned a short term deal at the start of November.

It had been expected that he would seek to earn a longer term deal by impressing for the U23s and perhaps push towards contention for the senior squad only for injury to blight his progress.
