New signing Ryan Boyle is impressed by the ambition of the Dons after signing a two-year-deal with the club.

Boyle has joined from Kingstone Press Championship side Halifax, and turned down offers to stay in the second tier in favour of a move to the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: “It’s pleasing to have signed, we’re back in training nice and early this year as well so I won’t have to wait too long before I get to meet all the lads.

“I had a few options to stay in the Championship but with my job changing off the field I wanted to be around the Doncaster area to suit my commitments.

“I can be settled now and not have to do too much travelling when it comes to games, I like the club’s ambition and the things that Richard and Carl have planned.”

With promotion the main aim in 2018, the 30-year-old prop forward is looking to use his wealth of Super League experience to guide the Dons towards the top end of the table.

“The club excites me, I told my agent that the Dons were the club I wanted to sign for and if we could get the deal done then this was the place for me,” he added.

“I spoke to Richard Horne and he explained that we’ve got some quality players here and we’re looking to give promotion a real push.

“I’ve got quite a lot of experience so I will look to use that to get us through the close games and act as a leader out there on the pitch.”
