Rob Kiernan is sponsored the Globe Inn, Standish.

One of the brightest prospects at the DW Stadium, Rob Kiernan was a stand-out performer in the second-half of the 2013-14 season after being handed his debut by Uwe Rosler in December 2013 in a 0-0 home draw with Burnley.

Signed from Watford in June 2011, Kiernan has enjoyed loan spells with Accrington Stanley, Burton Albion, Brentford and Southend United since his arrival and he’ll look to kick on in his first season as a full first-team squad member in 2014-15.

The Rickmansworth-born defender scored his first goal for the club in a 2-2 home draw with Leicester City in April 2014.
