Tommy Rowe says his heart was set on Rovers as soon as he knew there was interest.
After putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club, Rowe talked about the nostalgia of a familiar trip to the Keepmoat Stadium and looking forward to rekindling the form he had on his first stint at the club.
“As soon as I got the interest from Doncaster, something felt right about it,” he said.
“I made my intentions clear that a move back is something that we were trying to push through and things progressed really well. I was delighted over the next couple of weeks to continue the talks and speak to the manager. I’m delighted to be back.
“I’m a firm believer that you play your best football when you’re happy and you’re enjoying it and that was present for my three years here. This is my second spell here and familiarity will help me but ultimately, I’m ambitious and hungry to go again. I won’t settle at League One.
“I’m back from two seasons in the Championship and I feel like I’m a more rounded player, I feel like I’ve improved in my time away and I’ve come back hungrier than ever to succeed. Hopefully we can get off to a good start, the fans can get back here and we can enjoy a good season.”
Rowe believes fans will have a big part to play in the upcoming season and he can't wait to get back playing at the Keepmoat Stadium.
“Personally, I can’t wait for that first game when everyone’s back, there’s a full stadium and we can really enjoy it,” he added.
“We needed the fans at times, and when we’re not at our best the fans are massive for us. It’s a great stadium, it’s a great place and hopefully we can get back to that feeling and that’s something I’ll look forward to.”
