The young Scot signed for Rovers last summer after impressing on a trial with the club.

Michael has previously been on the books at Aberdeen and Leicester City before dropping out of pro football and playing for Scottish junior side Hurlford Town.

The full-back then made the move to the Mem in July 2017 - originally joining the Gas as part of the Development Squad.

In a successful first season in the South West, Kelly was part of the young Rovers side that won the Central League and enjoyed a loan spell with local neighbours, Bath City. 

Towards the end of the 2017/18 campaign, the left-back made his Sky Bet League One debut at the Mem, coming on as a second-half substitute against Charlton Athletic. 

Kelly enjoyed somewhat of a breakthrough season at Rovers during the 2018/19 campaign, featuring 30 times for Rovers throughout the season.
