The club is very pleased to have reached agreement with Niall Towle to remain with Rovers for 22/23. The versatile forward came in at the back end of last season and was pivotal in the run in playing in a defensive midfield role. Formerly with Long Eaton United where he came to prominence, winning the MFL golden boot at step 5, moves to Basford United, and subsequent spells with Corby Town and Carlton Town followed.
