Doncaster state intent with Cooke signing

Have your say

Doncaster RLFC are thrilled to announce the signing of 2005 Challenge Cup winner Paul Cooke.

The 30 year-old half back has joined the Dons playing squad and will also be working part-time within the club’s successful community development team.

Head coach Tony Miller said: “We set our stall out to sign Paul over a month ago and we’ve finally achieved our objective.

“Paul is a top class player and his record speaks for itself - you don’t win the Challenge Cup and play 300 Super League games by accident.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have him at the club and I’m looking forward to working with him.

“I’m sure he’s going to be a revelation for us and his experience and presence will prove to be beneficial to the young players we have at the club.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank-you to the fans and supporters who have paid in to our ‘Squadbuilder’ fund - we couldn’t have done it without you.”

The former Hull FC, Hull KR and Wakefield star said: “I’d like to thank John (Scarrow), Carl, Tony and the club’s fans and supporters for bringing me back into the game.

“The decision to join the Dons was made easy by Carl and Tony who sold the club to me really well and everything fell into place with the community development side of things.

“I’ve spent a long time earning a good living from Rugby League and I now want to put something back into the game.”
