BRISTOL CITY have begun their plans for next season by offering new deals to captain Tommy Doherty and youngster Liam Rosenior.

Doherty, who has just earned a surprise call-up to the Northern Ireland 'B' squad, was instrumental in the Ashton Gate club's successful campaign in Division Two, making 50 starts and leading The Robins to an LDV Vans Trophy win in Cardiff last month.

Rosenior, son of former Bristol City player and current Torquay United manager Leroy, made just four starts for the West Country outfit but made more of an impact from the bench.

He scored Bristol City's second goal to clinch the LDV Vans Trophy over Division Three side Carlisle United and manager Danny Wilson believes the utility man will be key to another promotion push next season.

"We're hopeful that Tommy and Liam will be part of the squad for next season, although that will obviously depend on their response to the offers," Wilson told the club's official website.

"Both are important players for the club's future.

"Tommy was a major influence on this season, while Liam continued his progress and looks a very good prospect."

Goalkeeper Mike Stowell will also discuss new terms with the club next week, while veteran Brian Tinnion has been offered a new deal combining playing with a coaching role.

The same cannot be said for striker Peter Beadle, who will not receive a new deal at Ashton Gate this summer and he will move on to pastures new for next season.
