Doncaster Rovers are delighted to confirm today that Brian Flynn has been appointed as manager of the club and will be assisted by Rob Jones, who will continue in his role as player coach.

Following a thorough and efficient search process and after receiving over 150 applications, the Doncaster Rovers owners have decided that as the club challenge for promotion back to the Championship, a key element of the promotion push has to be continuity and it is felt that Brian and Rob will be able to bring this as they aim to capitalise on a successful first half of the season.

Flynn and Jones

Chairman, John Ryan, said “We are pleased to announce that Brian and Rob have taken up our offer to manage the team and are now fully focused on the game against Leyton Orient. Brian has a great history at the club and is being assisted by our current captain Rob Jones, who has earned the respect of his teammates and fans this season through his commanding leadership. 

"We had an overwhelming number of applications for the position, including former International and Premiership managers, however after a detailed process we felt that our initial choice, Brian was the best person to put in charge and would allow a seamless transition.
 
Brian Flynn: "I am delighted to have received the news from the Chairman and Board of Directors this afternoon. Continuity is key, I've been here six months and in-charge ten days and nothing is broken  so nothing needs to change.

"When you walk into a dressing room, you can tell there is success in the air, and that's the feeling I got when I came down to the training Ground at Cantley Park. I could sense that the players were hungry for success.

"In the words of the Chairman, the aim for this season is not only promotion but going up as Champions as well - that positive attitude has come from the Chairman and the Board and we will try and carry that out."
