Gibraltar international Louie Annesley has agreed a new two-year deal with Rovers.

The central defender had the option in his previous deal taken up last month, but has now agreed a two-year extension through to 2023.

Annesley played 18 times for the Under-23s last season, a breakthrough campaign for the 21-year-old who had been hampered by injury since signing from Lincoln Red Imps in January 2019.

The 6’4 defender has been capped by Gibraltar on 19 occasions, including both of their matches this month against Slovenia and Andorra.

He has already outlined his hopes of breaking into the first-team at Rovers, and is likely to be considered for a loan move this summer, a route the club have preferred with their young centre halves.

Annesley has largely been used as a left-sided centre half by Billy Barr for the Under-23s, but has also filled in at left back on occasion, while for Gibraltar he has also operated in a holding midfield role.

Rovers have already taken up the options in the deals of Sam Barnes and Jalil Saadi who have both operating in the heart of the defence for the Under-23s.
