Talented young footballer Alex Fletcher has taken the first step on the road to a career in professional football by signing a contract with League One club Doncaster Rovers.

The Pontefract Sports and Social under 11s attacking player has played with the local junior team since he was six, under the guidance of head coach Lee Saxton. After being watched by talent scouts Alex had a 12-week spell with Manchester City last year and eventually moved to Doncaster earlier this year on a three-month trial period.

He was asked to sign at the end of last season and put pen to paper last week and is looking forward to taking up his place in the Rovers Academy this season.
