Former England international Brett Ferres signs for Doncaster

Doncaster have announced the signing of former England international Brett Ferres on a one-year deal.

Ferres joins after leaving Featherstone at the end of the 2022 season, having spent the majority of his career in Super League.

During a career that included 14 appearances for England, Ferres started his journey with Bradford Bulls, before enjoying spells with Wakefield Trinity, Castleford Tigers, Huddersfield Giants and Leeds Rhinos.

He was part of the Rhinos side that beat Castleford in the 2017 Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford, eventually leaving Headingley at the end of 2019 to sign for Featherstone.

Ferres played 17 times for Rovers in the Betfred Championship, with his contract expiring at the end of the 2022 season.

That left the 36-year-old on the market and it’s League 1 Doncaster who have picked up the 350-game veteran forward, as they look to gain promotion to the Championship in 2023.

Speaking on the signing of Ferres, Dons’ Chief executive Carl Hall said: “When a player of Brett’s calibre became available we acted quickly to secure his services for the upcoming campaign.

“He has had a great career both domestically and internationally and we feel he can add a lot to the team on and off the field.

“We welcome Brett to the Dons and hope the supporters enjoyed their Christmas present from us all.”
