LEAGUE One club Doncaster Rovers have signed Castleford Golds’ highly promising young player Ellis Newbould (pictured).

The under 11s skipper has been signed to the Doncaster Rovers Development Academy for the next 12 months after impressing scouts from the Football League team.

Right winger or midfielder Ellis, 11, who has been sponsored by Newbould and Clarke Joinery Contractors and JP Builders Merchants Ltd, has been congratulated by the Castleford club where he has learned his football.

Proud dad Roger said: “Doncaster have been brilliant. They kitted Ellis out with training shirt, jumper track suit, waterproof coat and game shirt. We also had a picture with every academy age group at the Keepmoat, which is one to keep.

“Ellis trains twice a week at Rossington and Cantley during the winter and the sponsors kindly donated to get him sponsored for the year.”
