Jordan Brown could be the next local talent to climb into the Football League.
The Eynesbury attacking ace has spent two weeks on trial at League Two side Stevenage.
Brown, 19, initially joined Rovers on loan from neighbours St Neots last September, but the move soon became permanent.
He impressed at United Counties League Premier Division level and could now be set to take a big step up the footballing ladder.
“I’m over the moon for Jordan to have this sort of opportunity,” said Rovers manager Mark Ducket.
“He has been immense in his time with Eynesbury and interest from this sort of level is no surprise to me.
“Jordan has terrific attitude and application, and a burning desire to be a professional footballer.

“I’ve had some great feedback on Jordan from the management team at Stevenage and we’ll see what comes of it.”
Ducket, who has been working abroad, is expecting a further update from Stevenage, as to whether or not they intend to step up their interest, after returning to the UK today (Wednesday).
Brown, who scored 16 goals to help Eynesbury finish fifth in the United Counties League Premier Division and lift the Hunts Senior Cup, is also in demand from other non-league clubs.
He is understood to have been approached by United Counties League Premier Division champions Peterborough Sports, who will play in the Northern League Division One South next season, and Southern League Premier Division outfit St Ives Town.
“Jordan is also wanted by a number of non-league clubs as well, and I know he has spoken to a couple of them,” added Ducket, who revealed that striker Allan Owen has left Rovers due to work commitments.
