Mason signs up

8 May 2017

Rovers have completed their first signing of the summer, with Niall Mason turning down other clubs to complete a permanent move from Aston Villa.

The 20-year-old made 42 appearances on loan for Rovers this season, with the club paying an undisclosed fee to the Championship side to make it a permanent move. He has signed a two-year deal.

Mason said “I had a couple of options to go a bit higher up the pyramid, but this is a great platform for me. I am working with a manager and coaching staff who know my game inside out and can get the best out of me.

“They’ve all been really good to me and helped me develop, they’re probably the best coaching staff in League Two. They are only going to help me progress as a player.”

Mason was also impressed with the ambition and potential of Rovers, as the club progresses on and off the pitch as part of Club Doncaster.

He added: “You can see the potential of the club, we have a good stadium and training facilities, and it has everything going for it really.

“We’re not going up to League One just to take part, we’re going up to give it a good go.”
