NEWS | Hall on departing players
Following confirmation of several players leaving the Dons, chief executive Carl Hall has paid tribute to those heading for pastures new.
Captain Brad Foster has agreed a deal with Betfred Championship side London Broncos following the Dons’ play-off final defeat to Workington Town.
Prop forward Ross Peltier has joined Dewsbury, while Jake Sweeting and Ollie Greensmith, who spent the majority of 2020 on loan at the Keepmoat Stadium, have also penned deals with the Rams.
Carl said: “We wish all of the lads that have been confirmed to be leaving so far all the best, and we respect their ambition to play at a higher level.
“I remain confident that if we had won promotion, then the majority of the squad would have agreed new deals and made us a real force.
“There will be more departures in the coming weeks which shows the standard of the squad myself and Richard Horne managed to put together for last season.
“The focus for us now is on recruitment and retaining the players who want to be here. That work is well underway and we are looking forward to bringing you more positive news when those signatures are secured.”
