Alongside Jake Clarke-Salter, left footed midfielder Charlie Colkett was one of two Chelsea youngsters to join Rovers on Transfer Deadline Day as the side sought to establish itself in League One in 2016/17, following back to back promotions. 

Despite having no League experience to his name, Colkett had made the substitutes’ bench for a Premier League encounter with Swansea City. 

In addition, he had helped Chelsea secure the FA Youth Cup in both 2014 and 2015 as well as winning two UEFA Youth League titles, serving as captain in the 2016 final against Paris St Germain. 

With eight appearances and one goal in the Youth League and 11 matches under his belt in the Barclays’ U-21 Premier League, he also represented England at various age levels, winning six caps at U-16, seven caps and a goal at U-17, one match at U-18 and five games and a goal at U-19; he had represented the England U-20 side on one occasion, scoring the second goal in a 4-3 victory in France in November 2015.
