Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of striker Joe Ironside on a three-year deal.
The experienced forward joins after leaving Cambridge United where he played a key role in their promotion to, and survival in, Sky Bet League One in recent seasons.
“I’m buzzing to make this move,” the 29-year-old said. “I spoke to the gaffer a few times and it rolled from there. I can’t wait to get going.
“Everything about the way the gaffer wants to take the team and the club, I want to be a part of it. It feels like the perfect fit for me.”
Ironside netted 35 goals in 145 appearances for Cambridge. He scored 14 goals during the promotion-winning campaign of 2020/21 before beating the tally the following season in League One and also netted the only goal of a brilliant FA Cup upset at Newcastle United.
Born in Middlesbrough but raised in South Yorkshire, he came through the ranks at Sheffield United, for whom he made 23 senior appearances before a spell in non-league football. Returning to the EFL with Macclesfield Town in 2019, he made the switch to Cambridge a year later.
Rovers manager Grant McCann said: “Joe is a fantastic signing for us - a number nine with a good pedigree at League Two and League One level.
“He won promotion from this division with Cambridge and knows what it takes.
“He’s a superb acquisition for us and has a hunger and a mindset which I know the Doncaster fans will love.”
