Darrell names four triallists for tomorrow's game
Manager Darrell Clarke has named a squad of 14 for tomorrow’s friendly fixture against Bath City (Twerton Park, kick off 3.00pm).
“I wanted out supporters to know the squad in advance,” said the manager this morning as his squad prepared for their final training session at the University of South wales before heading home this afternoon.
The game gives an opportunity to some of the first team squad, and the four first year pros, to get more game time.
“It also gives me the chance to run the rule over some the triallists I have included in the squad.”
The triallists include Pierce Mitchell, who has been training with the squad since they reported back for pre-season training, and Ryan Higgins, both of whom featured in the games against Cirencester and Cheltenham Town.
Neal Trotman, who was at Plymouth last season, has been training with the squad for the last two days and he is also in the party to make the short journey to Bath.
Dan Thompson, a former Portsmouth scholar, is another player the manager will be taking a look at.
Rovers scholars Kieran Preston and Ryan Broom are included in the travelling party.
Squad: Kieran Preston, Neal Trotman, Pierce Mitchell, Danny Greenslade, Aaron Ward-Baptiste, Dominic Thomas, Jake Gosling, Ryan Broom, Jamie Lucas, Dan Thompson, Jamie White, Ollie Clarke, Ellis Harrison, Ryan Higgins
