Rovers sign striker Billy Waters on loan from Wrexham

11 January 2024

Rovers are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Billy Waters on loan from Wrexham.

The 29-year-old will spend the remainder of the season at the Eco-Power Stadium and will be in line to make his debut in the clash with Newport County, subject to international clearance.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Waters said. “As soon as I knew there was interest, this was definitely a club that I wanted to join and I’m delighted that it’s been done so quickly to get it over the line.

“I’ve played against Doncaster quite a few times in my career and I’ve always known how big a club it is. It’s a lovely stadium and there’s a great set-up at the training ground. It’s a great club and it was one I wanted to be a part of.”

A product of the Crewe Alexandra Academy, Waters broke through at Cheltenham Town and netted 30 goals in 111 appearances before switching to Northampton Town.

After a spell with Torquay United, the Epsom-born forward joined FC Halifax Town where he scored 19 goals in 47 appearances in the 2021/22 season before following manager Pete Wild to Barrow.

He scored nine goals for the Cumbria side last term, earning him a move to Wrexham in the summer.

Rovers manager Grant McCann said: “Billy is a goalscorer and he has been over the years at different clubs.

“We feel it’s a great signing for us. He’s really hungry to come in, play games and score goals. He’s sharp in his movements, wants to get in-behind and between the posts.

“He’s had experience of the level and scored goals at the level. It’s a good signing for us.”

Waters will wear the number 40 shirt during his time with Rovers.
