Rovers have no fewer than six of their Under-16s in the first Devon County Under-16 squad this season. Speaking after the news broke Rovers Under-16 boss Simon Fry said: “It’s testament to the quality we have in the team that we have so many lads called up for county duty.”

Despite being currently injured Kieran Fry is included in the back-up squad. The youngster hurt his hip playing for the Under-18s last month at Wincanton and faces 6-8 weeks out. We wish him well with his recovery.
