“I couldn’t be happier to be staying here for another year,” Hall said. “When the opportunity came around for me to come back to Rovers it was a no-brainer for me and I have loved the last few months being back at the club.”
Scruton added: “I’m over the moon to agree a new contract with the club, I have enjoyed my time here over the past two seasons and I am already looking forward to getting started again with pre-season ahead of what promises to be an exciting 2019 season.”
Meanwhile, Rovers have confirmed that Chris Clarkson, Ben Kavanagh, Danny Tickle, James Donaldson, Matty Marsh and Liam Salter were not offered new contracts, while Kieren Moss, Jordan Walne and Brad Clavering have also left the club.
