Doncaster Rovers appoint new manager

Doncaster Rovers have this afternoon confirmed the appointment of Darren Moore as their first team manager.

The former Baggies boss comes in and replaces Grant McCann who departed the club for Hull City on the 21st of June following a 6th place finish in the League One table and a playoff place before losing the semis.

Moore was the manager of West Brom before he was shockingly sacked on 9 March 2019 due of a bad run of home results.

He was originally caretaker, but got the job on a full time basis. Guided them to fourth in the Championship table but won just four of his last 12 league games in charge and suffered defeats by fellow promotion contenders.

Albion are the only club he has managed. He is also a former footballer for Torquay, Doncaster, Bradford, Portsmouth, West Brom, Derby, Barnsley and Burton Albion.

He said: “It feels really good to be back, having been here before as a player to be back as the manager is an honour for me.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know everybody around the place, the role really appealed to me given the Club Doncaster model currently in place.”

Rovers chief executive Gavin Baldwin added: “I’m really pleased to have Darren on board, he was a really strong candidate and I am confident he is a really good fit for the club.

“His values match ours, and I’m sure our supporters join the owners and myself in giving him a warm welcome and wishing him well at the club. Everyone is now focused on having a good season and building towards the opening game against Gillingham.”
