Bristol Rovers prospect pens new contract

Young Bristol Rovers striker Kieran Phillips has put pen to paper on his first professional contract with the League One side.

He signs a two-year contract that will begin upon the conclusion of his scholarship in the summer.

The second-year scholar has caught the eye in the under-18s and development squad this season with a regular haul of goals propelling him onto the radar of the senior squad.

He made the journey with the squad to Rochdale during the early parts of the season before being included on the bench when Rovers visited Ipswich Town in Graham Coughlan’s final game in charge.

He was also an unused substitute for the trip to Plymouth Argyle back in December for an FA Cup replay.

Who scored Rovers' first goal in 2020?

The teenage striker was on target for the under-23 side a couple of weeks back against Plymouth as he netted a brace after coming on as a late substitute.

Phillips is just the latest academy product to sign professional terms with the club in recent years as he follows in the footsteps of Alfie Kilgour and Lucas Tomlinson.

The Verdict

The young forward has been showing promise over the last few months and is clearly highly-rated by previous manager Coughlan and current gaffer Ben Garner.

Rovers have tied down one of their hottest prospects to a deal that sees him remain at The Memorial Stadium until the summer of 2022 and the teenager can now think about kicking on and developing as he looks to break into the senior squad on a permanent basis.
