Hunt looking forward to the work ahead

21 May 2021

Noel Hunt says he’s looking forward to getting to work after being appointed as Rovers assistant manager.

The 38-year-old will link up once again with manager Richie Wellens after the pair enjoyed success together at Swindon Town. 

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted, once I knew Richie had got the job I was keen to join him. It’s a brilliant setup here and I’m excited to be a part of it. 

“I’ve come up against Doncaster plenty of times as a player and always enjoyed playing at the Keepmoat, so to be in the home dugout now is something I’m looking forward to. 

“The last few months I’ve been going to watch games without fans in the stadium, and they’ll make a massive difference when they’re back in next season.” 

With a few weeks to go before the first-team are back in for pre-season training, Hunt says plans are already being put in place for when they return. 

He added: “It’s important that we create that culture and set the standards for the players so we can take the club forward. 

“We have plans in place for how we can put together a really good footballing side, if you put the hours in on the training ground then that will happen. 

“There are plenty of things for me and the manager to work on, we’re already putting building blocks in place ready for the players coming back in at the end of June.”
