Saunders has plans for Doncaster to rely on youth

New Doncaster boss Dean Saunders intends to bring players through the youth ranks and into the first team as part of a long term strategy. The Welshman told The Sheffield Star: "I am really conscious of the fact we have to bring kids through at the club. We have got a short-term problem which is obvious when you look at the league table that I have got to try and do something about but I am looking at the future.

"I am going to put my slant on what I think a young Doncaster Rovers footballer should be. We need youngsters to come through.

"I'll be showing as much interest in them as the first team players and I want them to know that, if they are good enough, they will get a chance to prove it while I am here."
