Butler appointed first team manager until the end of the season

1 March 2021

Following the departure of Darren Moore to Sheffield Wednesday, Doncaster Rovers can confirm that Andy Butler has been put in charge of managing the first team with immediate effect.

Chairman David Blunt said: “We are disappointed that Darren has chosen to leave the club part way through what has been a season full of promise.  

"We have made significant efforts to support Darren over the past 18-months and ensure he was able to build a team capable of challenging in the top six. This has included supporting him through the past two transfer windows despite the difficult financial circumstances.

"Our ambitions remain to achieve a top six finish and we hope and expect that Andy will use this time to put himself in the prime position to secure the role on a permanent basis at the end of the season. Andy’s first priority will be to halt the team's recent run of poor form and put our season back on track.”

The club can also confirm that Jamie Smith has left the club with immediate effect.
