After the greatest summer of his life, Danny Andrew is looking for a season to match.
As well as joining Rovers from Grimsby Town, the 26-year-old welcomed his first child during the off-season.
“It’s been a different summer from what I’ve been used to,” he said.
“Usually it’s a couple of holidays but this summer it’s been cleaning nappies and sleepless nights.
“My fiancee is really good. She helps me through the night.
“Through pre-season it’s been tough training. She does most of the stuff through the night and I get up with him in the morning and let her have a couple of hours while I get ready for training.
“It’s been unbelievable – the best summer.”
While he continues to get his teeth into parenthood with son Carter, Andrew is ready to tackle life with Rovers and his own long-awaited return to League One - provided he can cope with the sleepless nights.
Andrew enjoyed a superb season with Grimsby, scooping almost every award at the end of season dinner.
The full back could have remained at Blundell Park, where he was offered a new deal, and several other clubs were interested.
But Rovers had caught his eye when he came up against them as a Mariner last term.
He said: “I played against them last season and they way they played, I really took it to me.
“How high the full backs got – I really wanted to be a part of it.
“After speaking to the gaffer, it was a no-brainer for me.
“And obviously stepping up a league as well. I’ve got ambitions to play higher and that was part of the plan.”
Andrew has experienced League One football before but endured a tough time at Fleetwood Town where injuries blighted his two-year spell.
And he admits he feels he has a point to prove in the third tier.
He said: “I was unlucky with injuries at Fleetwood so I had to take a step back.
“I think I played about 17 games which isn’t enough.
“I’ve definitely got a lot to prove to myself as well and give myself belief that I can do it at this level.
“The aim was always to get back. I didn’t want to drop out of it but I had to.
“Now I’m here, I’m so determined to stay here and hopefully go even further.
“Hopefully I can do that with Doncaster.”
Do that and it truly will be an unforgettable year for Andrew.
