DRFC Rovers giving trials to promising youngsters

Doncaster Rovers are giving trials to three promising young players at the moment.

Josh Payne, Liam Hardy and Tomos Roberts are all currently at the club and all three featured in Wednesday nights 2-0 pre season friendly win over Askern Villa.

Josh Payne is a 19-year-old midfielder who was released by Premier League side West Ham United at the end of the season having made only two appearances for the club.

He has also enjoyed short loan spells at Cheltenham Town, Colchester United and Wycombe Wanderers.

Liam Hardy is a young striker who signed for Harrogate Town at the start of June after an impressive season for local side Armthorpe Welfare.

He scored 46 goals in all competitions last season and his total of 36 goals in the league won him the golden boot.

His goals helped Armthorpe to finish third in the North East Counties Premier League and also finish runners up in the North Counties League Cup Final.

Tomos Roberts is an 18-year-old midfielder who has been capped by Wales at under 16 and 19 level.

He started his career at Manchester United and is currently a member of the Aston Villa academy. Roberts played in both legs of the FA Youth Cup last season when Villa lost 3-2 to Chelsea on aggregate.

They sound like really promising players, one with Premiership experience, one from a Premiership side and a non league lad who looks like he's got an excellent eye for goal. He's just signed for Harrogate wjo are managed by former Rover and Doncaster lad Simon Weaver.

This is what we should be doing, all three sound good, we usually end up with players who are ready for retiring.
