Loanee Marsh seeking to carry red hot scoring form into senior football

1 September 2023

Louie Marsh is looking to provide attacking spark to help ignite Rovers’ push for promotion this season.

The 19-year-old joined on transfer deadline day on a season-long loan from Sheffield United and is looking to carry his red hot form in front of goal from U21 level - which brought hat-tricks in each of his last two games - into senior football.

“I spoke to Grant and his expectations were the same as mine,” Marsh said. “It’s about pushing up there and we really want to get promoted. I think we’re capable of that with the squad that we’ve got.

“I’ll put 100 per cent in - that’s a given I think. Scoring goals, assisting goals, getting on the half turn, making things happen. I think that’s what I’m capable of and hopefully the fans will see that as well.”

Marsh has had a taste of first team football with the Blades this season, having been named on the bench for each of their Premier League fixtures so far before making his senior debut in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

And he admits he is now desperate for regular senior football which he hopes his loan move will provide.

He said: “It’s been incredible, being around a Premier League club is unbelievable. Being on the bench, experiencing all the fans and other stadiums, it’s special and a great feeling.

“It was a special feeling to make my debut. As soon as I came onto the pitch I knew it was a moment that I will definitely cherish my whole life.

“But I think now is the perfect time for Doncaster Rovers. Now I think I’m ready for men’s football regularly and I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s a big change but I can’t wait and I think I’ll be up for it. It’s something I’m really looking forward to. Even last year, I was looking forward to getting out and now it’s sorted I just can’t wait to get going.”
