Rovers complete signing of Harrison Biggins

19 May 2022

Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Harrison Biggins on a two-year deal.

Sheffield-born Biggins joins the club after leaving Sky Bet League One side Fleetwood Town in the summer, following five years with the Cod Army.

The energetic midfielder becomes Gary McSheffrey’s first signing of the summer transfer window, with the deal effective from July 1.

The 26-year-old started his career across South Yorkshire with Barnsley, before moving to into non league with Stocksbridge Park Steels

He improved year on year with the Steels and with his reputation enhancing, he signed for Fleetwood Town in 2017 and has now made more than 120 career appearances. 

Biggins played a key role in helping Fleetwood survive in the third tier last season, chipping in with five goals along the way.

He arrives to complement a midfield already boasting the quality of Tommy Rowe, Adam Clayton and Ben Close.

Biggins said: “It’s a great feeling to get the deal signed and sorted. I’m just looking forward now to coming in and getting going.

“The club speaks for itself and the intentions this season are to go back up, that is my aim and I want to be successful here.”

On his new recruit, McSheffrey said: “He had good options in this division and if he’d hung around he might have had even more but it shows what type of lad he is that he wanted to get the deal done here.

“For us it was about getting someone with the core values that we’re looking for and he ticks pretty much every box.”

Head of football operations James Coppinger said: “Harrison is everything we are looking for both as a person and a football player.

“A high energy, forward thinking midfielder with an eye for goal, he is full of character to complement the players we already have at the club.

“I’m really excited to see him progress his career here with us at Doncaster Rovers.”
