Alfie May described scoring his first goal for Rovers as the proudest moment of his life.
The forward, who joined the club from non-league Hythe Town in January, came on and rescued a point for Darren Ferguson’s side against Luton Town.
That goal was his first in red and white, and he says it couldn’t have come at a better time.
“I got shivers hearing the crowd when I scored, seeing the boys running over to me, I was so happy. We did well to come back and get a point against a strong side in Luton,” he said.
“My mum, dad and niece were here, I think my Dad cried when I scored because he was so happy.
“The gaffer has brought me in to score goals so hopefully with a few more I can repay the faith he’s shown in me.”
May’s clinical finish 10 minutes from time ensured that Rovers extended their unbeaten run at the Keepmoat Stadium, and the 23-year-old says the rest of the first team squad have welcomed him with open arms.
“From the first day I came on trial, on the Monday morning the lads made me feel so welcome and generally made things a lot easier for me,” he added.
“I’ve had to be patient as the players who have been starting have done so well and we’ve got such a good team spirit here.
“Football brings you so many friends and I’ve now got to know another brilliant group of lads, the boys have been amazing with me.”
