And when asked what attracted him to the job following Darren Ferguson's resignation earlier this month, the 38-year-old said the community feel of the club was a big draw.

"I've lived down this way - I've played for Barnsley, I've played for Scunthorpe," he said.

"The one thing is, there is always a lot of friendly people about and I've found that with meeting the staff today.

"It's all this itself - Club Doncaster.

"Being at the League awards last year and seeing Andy Butler picking up the community award and Matty Blair this year.

"It's a real family club and it's one I know my wife can be proud of me for being a part of - and my mum and dad back home.

"My kids can come here and enjoy it.

"And hopefully I can make all the fans in the stadium, and all the players can make them, happy and have a really good season."
