Adam Clayton is looking forward to starting a new project with Rovers after signing for the club on an 18-month deal.
The vastly experienced midfielder says conversations with Gary McSheffrey made the decision to come to South Yorkshire an easy one.
He said: “I got a call from the manager, and he asked if I’d like to come down. Once I’d done that I wanted to get something sorted.
“Hopefully I can bring that experience I’ve had throughout my career to the team to help the lads around me.
“I learnt a lot from experienced players when I was a young lad and keep in touch with them now so I know how much of an influence you can have.”
With talks already in place prior to the weekend’s win over MK Dons, the 33-year-old admitted he was kicking every ball from home and cheering his new team mates onto three points.
He added: “I watched the MK Dons game with the talks going on in the background and I already had the nerves in my stomach with five minutes to go hoping the lads held on.
“My partner was texting me and she was desperate for the final whistle to go as well and I’ve missed having that care and love for the team I’m playing for.
“I want to achieve a lot here, Doncaster as a football club fits everything I believe in and the aim while I’m here is to help the club build again.”
