Rovers Recruit Richardson

30 August 2016

Experienced defender joins club on short-term contract.

Rovers have completed the signing of Frazer Richardson.

The 33-year-old defender was a free agent having left Rotherham United this summer, and has signed a two-month contract.

Richardson began his career with Leeds United, with spells at Stoke City, Charlton Athletic, Southampton, Middlesbrough and Ipswich Town before joining the Millers in 2014.

Upon moving across South Yorkshire, the versatile operator said he was “good to go.”

“Obviously I haven’t done a pre-season but I’ve been doing a bit of training – and I have to say a big thank you to Phil Parkinson who let me train with Bolton for a couple of weeks – so I’ve got a bit of football work in to the legs but since the season started I haven’t had too much football but I’ve been keeping myself right so I’m good to go!

“Things haven’t worked out how we quite hoped in the summer for various reasons but Darren (Ferguson) gave me a ring and wanted to bring me in for a couple of months and I jumped at the chance to be quite honest – I’m looking at this as a really good opportunity for myself.

“Doncaster; there’s a really good set up here, a great bunch of lads and Darren and his backroom staff are a good management team. 

“I’m really looking forward to it to be honest. As soon as I got the call it was a 'no-brainer' so I’m really looking forward to it.”

The Club would like to welcome Frazer, who will initially wear the number 25 shirt during his stay at Keepmoat Stadium.
