Doncaster Rovers appoint Grant McCann as new boss

League One club Doncaster Rovers have appointed former Peterborough manager Grant McCann as their new manager.

The 38-year-old replaces Darren Ferguson, who left the club earlier this month after nearly three years at the Keepmoat Stadium.

McCann told Doncaster’s official website: “I cannot wait to get started. Doncaster are a club with real potential and ambition, and after meeting the chairman and chief executive I am confident we can work together to get the club into the Championship and stay there.”

“We have the makings of a successful season, with a good squad of players and backroom staff already in place to provide the foundations.

McCann’s first league game in charge will be a trip to Southend United on August 4.
