Doncaster Apprentice Amos Pens First Pro Contract

Doncaster Rovers second-year apprentice Danny Amos has signed his first professional contract, penning a deal until the summer of 2019.

The 17-year-old made his senior debut in August 2016 during a Checktrade Trophy victory over Mansfield Town and was handed a first start in this year’s competition against Scunthorpe United at the end of October.

“It’s fantastic to get this sorted, and it is a dream come true to sign for Rovers,” Amos told the club website. “Darren Ferguson is a manager who can really bring young players along and this is a great club to continue my development.

“I want to say a big thanks to the rest of the youth team, ever since I came in they welcomed me and I couldn’t ask for a better set of lads and staff – Paul Stancliffe, John Schofield, Kieran Scarff and Mick Tarmey have all been brilliant.”

The young left-back earned a Northern Ireland Under-19s call-up earlier this season and celebrated the occasion with a terrific consolation strike during a 2-1 defeat to Poland before keeping a clean sheet in his second cap against Belarus.

He added: “I took a lot of confidence from playing for Northern Ireland, which you could see when I scored with a late winner in the youth team (against Hartlepool United) then got my first start in the first-team.

“But now it is all about working hard every day to make the most of the opportunity I have.”
