17 May 2021

Former Rovers midfielder Richie Wellens has been appointed as the club’s new first-team manager.

Wellens returns to the Keepmoat Stadium following 199 appearances in a red and white shirt across two spells during his playing days.

Since hanging his boots up, the 41-year-old has spent time in charge of Oldham Athletic, Swindon Town and more recently Salford City.

He guided Swindon to the Sky Bet League Two title in the 2019/20 campaign, before winning the Papa John’s Trophy with Salford last season.
