Rovers have parted company with striker Bruce Dyer with the forward having his contract with the club cancelled by mutual consent. Hampered by injury since his arrival in Doncaster, Bruce has struggled to make an impact on the Rovers first team, and with Sean O’Driscoll looking to bring in fresh talent in the transfer window Dyer has been given the opportunity to find another club.
An established striker for Crystal Palace, Watford, Sheffield United and Barnsley over the years Dyer did not quite manage to reproduce past form whilst with the Rovers managing just a single goal for Doncaster in a 3-1 home victory over Crew Alexandra in August 2006. Injuries blighted Dyer’s start to that season and it wasn’t until the back end of the season when he returned to the starting line-up.
After some encouraging performances and a number of goals in pre-season ahead of the current campaign it was felt Dyer could have been about to make an overdue return to the first team, however with the arrival of James Hayter and the return to form of Lewis Guy Dyer’s only action has come in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and in a loan spell with Rotherham United.
The club have however been very eager to praise Dyer’s professionalism whilst with Rovers, and it is hoped the striker finds a new club soon. Here at viva rovers we’re holding out for that move to Sheffield Wednesday that will give Dyer the illusive South Yorkshire full-house. Come on the Owls give him ago.
