DONCASTER ROVERS have bolstered their goalkeeping department by bringing in Manchester City custodian Ian Lawlor, with the Dubliner signing a deal until the summer of 2019.

The 6ft 4in goalkeeper, 22, who spent previous loan spells at Bury and Barnet, will go straight into the squad to face one of his old clubs in Barnet tomorrow.

On moving to Rovers, Lawlor, who will compete with Ross Etheridge with Marko Marosi out for three months with an ankle injury, said: “I’m delighted to be here, I’m looking forward to progressing and getting involved with the lads.

“I spoke with the manager and saw the ambition of the club, obviously we’re on a great run at the moment but to see the future is something I want to be a part of.

“It’s nice to have the feeling that they want me to come in on a permanent basis. But there is nothing guaranteed in football, so I’m ready for a battle.

“I’ll work hard every day and, if selected come the weekend, will give everything I have.”
