The 17 year old defender has been on the bench against Accrington Stanley and Wycombe Wanderers.

Darrell Clarke rates the young defender highly and believes he has a bright future in the game.

He follows in the footsteps of Ellis Harrison, Tom Lockyer, Ollie Clarke, Chris Lines and many others.

Alfie Kilgour has been with Bristol Rovers since he joined the Centre of Excellence as an eight years old.

He featured in pre-season against Salisbury, Sutton United, Cirencester Town and Reading.

Alfie is a composed right sided defender who is competitive in his approach and aggressive in the tackle.

For the BRFC Academy Under 18 side he has played games at both right back and in central defence.

His playing style has been likened to a combination of Tom Lockyer, Adam Barrett and Andy Tilson.

He is good in the air for his size, assured in possession and prepared to keep on listening and learning.
