Greenslade & Egan Secure Contracts
Bristol Rovers are delighted to announce that two exciting Academy graduates have signed professional contracts with the club.
Forward Harvey Greenslade and defender Jamie Egan, both 18, have put pen to paper and are already looking forward to making an impression and breaking into the Gas first team.
Greenslade was invited to train with Joey Barton's squad in the final few weeks of the campaign, whilst Irish defender Egan has spent time out on loan at Hereford.
Byron Anthony, Head of Academy Coaching, said: "Harvey has been in the Academy from day one, so it is extremely pleasing to see him develop as a person and player over the years. From starting out in the foundation phase to now being offered a professional contract with the football club is fantastic.
"Huge credit goes to him and to everyone who has been a part of his development journey so far. Everyone within the Academy is delighted that Harvey has been offered a professional contract and we look forward to seeing him develop further within the first-team environment next season.
“Jamie’s journey has been slightly different; he arrived at the football club later than some of the other players in the Academy but this did not faze him. He has shown great character and commitment to developing as a player and worked extremely hard since arriving. He has impressed this season whilst being out on loan at Hereford."
Harvey said: "I am delighted to be offered a professional contract at the club I have been at since the U7s. I've worked hard and had great support from my family. I had a taste of what first-team football is about when I trained with the team recently and I can't wait to make an impression next season."
Jamie added: "It's a dream come true. Now it's about pushing on and I can't wait to play in front of the Gasheads at The Mem. Being out on loan has shown me that I have adapted to men's football and I can't wait to get started."
