Harrison Trueman is the player chosen to feature in the latest ‘Focusing on Youth’ on the BRFC website.
At the club since he was 11, Harrison Trueman has been climbing his way through the ranks of Bristol Rovers’ academy and now finds himself a key member of the Under-18 Academy side.
Frequently used at left-back, Harrison can also play at centre-back. In the latest Academy match he played exceptionally well at centre-back despite having the unenviable task of marking AFC Bournemouth’s physically imposing rising star, Joe Quigley.
His season got halted with a groin injury earlier in the year, but when fit he becomes a permanent fixture in the U-18s.
Born in London, Harrison’s ultimate goal is to play in the Bristol Rovers first team further down the line, as he hopes to continue the progression he’s been making.
Hard working and strong in the tackle, Harrison is a no-nonsense defender who is a great asset to the club both on and off the pitch, because his attitude is one other young players should look to emulate.
Harrison also has two younger brothers who are both in the Rovers set-up; Flynn, currently in the U-12’s, and Mason in the U-15’s.
