Ollie Hulbert signs Pro Deal

16 June 2020

The Club is pleased to announce that Ollie Hulbert has signed his first professional contract.

The youth team prospect, who has been on the books with Rovers since the U8's age group, has impressed this season as a second-year scholar, with six goals in 14 starts.
 
The centre-forward captained the U18's during their 2019/20 FA Youth Cup fixtures and was on the scoresheet as Rovers beat Swindon Town at the County Ground in the competition. 
 
Speaking about the youngster agreeing his first professional deal, Manager Ben Garner said, "Ollie is a player that has come all the way through the Academy system from a young age.

"He is highly regarded by the Academy staff and has shown his potential when training with the First Team. Ollie will now be given the opportunity to develop further with the aim of progressing into the first-team squad."

Hulbert commented on the step up to a professional contract, saying "I'm delighted to be signing a pro contract with Bristol Rovers and working hard to get my career started."

Academy manager Chris Hargreaves offered his thoughts on the deal, saying "Ollie has worked extremely hard on his game and I am delighted he has been rewarded with a pro contract.

"He is one of many Academy players who see a pathway towards the first team and who want to be part of the future of the club."
