Horlock Leaves Rovers

Rovers forgotten man Kevin Horlock has today left Doncaster Rovers, as his contract was cancelled by mutual consent. The midfielder first joined Rovers in Spring 2006 when he made thirteen appearances for Dave Penney’s side whilst on loan from Ipswich Town. That summer Horlock made a permenent move to Belle Vue and featured in the opening two games of the 2006-2007 season, scoring in his second match against Crewe.

However, in the same game the midfielder suffered a knee injury which kept him out of the squad for the rest of the season. In the run up to the current season Horlock’s luck went from bad to worse as, with the veteran player on the verge of a first team comeback, he dislocated his shoulder in training. The former Northern Ireland international finally returend to fitness more fifteen months on from that Crewe match and was on the bench for the FA Cup replay with Oldham. However, with the summer additions of Richie Wellens and Martin Woods to O’Driscoll’s midfield arsenal Horlock has found himself with a long way to go in the search of first team football. As such Horlock, who’s contract was to be up in the summer, has agreed to terminate his stay early. The former West Ham and Manchester City star is expected to join another side in the coming weeks.
