Doncaster sign Bradford fan favourite

Doncaster have confirmed the signing of popular Bradford front rower Ross Peltier.

The 27-year-old has spent the past three years with the Bulls after spells with Keighley and the Huddersfield academy.

The Jamaica international has made over 100 professional appearances to date and will add significant bulk to the Dons’ forward pack.

“I’m massively excited to get started and to work for this club, speaking with Carl Hall and Richard Horne made my mind up to come here,” he said. “Their vision for the club is exciting and it’s a journey I want to be a part of.

“It’s a great setup and a club that is moving in the right direction, in my opinion we have a squad that could achieve big things in 2020.”

Doncaster head coach Richard Horne added: “Looking at the balance of our squad we felt we needed more firepower in the middles and signing Ross gives us that.

“He has a lot of experience both at Championship and League One level, and is a handful for opposition teams to get to grips with.

“His arrival further strengthens our squad for the 2020 campaign, and it is one everyone at the club is looking forward to.”

Peltier becomes the Dons’ fifth new signing for 2020, joining Sam Smeaton, Jack Logan, Harry Carter and Watson Boas at the Keepmoat Stadium.
