Development Squad Players Get More First Team Experience On Loan

25 October 2017

Midfielder Mohamed Baghdadi yesterday became the latest Development Squad player to seek additional First Team games to further his development.

Baghdadi joined Southern League Premier Division side Dorchester Town on a month-long loan on Tuesday and went straight into their starting 11 to take on Basingstoke that evening.

However, Mo isn't the first Development Squad player to seek additional games to further his progression as he looks for a spot in the Rovers first team. 

Currently, Rovers Academy graduates Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist and Lewis Ellington are on loan at Yate Town and Mangotsfield Town respectively with Charlie Ten-Grotenhuis on loan at Gloucester City. 

Fellow Development Squad players Ben Morgan, Cameron Ebbutt and Thom Jonkerman have also spent time on loan from the club as they experience men's First Team football and further their development. 

The club's Development Squad are currently on a bit of a roll having won their previous six games with the latest victory coming against Plymouth Argyle Tuesday afternoon in the Central League. 

Up next for the Development Squad is local rivals Bristol City in the Central League Cup, that fixture will take place at Weston Super Mare FC [Winterstoke Rd, Weston-super-Mare BS24 9AA] on Thursday 16th November.
