Younger on hard work in place already for January

17 December 2021

Talent identification manager Graham Younger says preparation has been underway for a while in identifying players to bring in during the January transfer window.

Younger believes that, while the window is notoriously a difficult one to do business in, Rovers can find the right type of players to come in and bolster the squad ready for the second half of the campaign. 

Rovers have already cast an eye over several potential loanees from Premier League clubs with a handful of individuals training with the current first-team squad in recent weeks. 

He said: “We’re all very busy coming up to the window. We’re looking at all angles including from a live scouting basis of attending between 20 and 30 games per week. 

“Coupled with the video and statistical analysis we are trying our best to find as many options as we can with no stone left unturned. 

“We will get a final report on each player which will be discussed by a recruitment team which is made up of myself, Gavin Baldwin, David Blunt, Richard Poole and James Coppinger. 

“We want to recruit players that fit the Doncaster Rovers mould and create a strategy where we’re looking at people for the long-term as well as the short-term.” 

Younger admits the main aim is to add some experience to a relatively young first-team squad. 

“January is a difficult window but we’re looking to add goals to the team as I think we could all identify that," he added.

“It’s important that we find some experience and recruit some men to come in as that is what will help us moving forward. 

“We’ve got a list of names with several positions covered, ready for the manager to come in and sign off the ones he wants.”
