As we said way back somewhere in the middle of the season, not since legenedary 1940s winger Derek Whipsagoodcrossin have Rovers possessed such an aptly named player as Billy Sharp. A true predatory forward, Sharp has shown distinctive alertness in and around the penalty area to finish not just as Doncaster Rovers to scorer, but one of the Championship’s hottest strikers to boot.
Alas of course Sharp’s stay in Doncaster last season was guaranteed to be just a temporary affair, having joined on loan from Sheffield United, the goalscorer has returned to his parent club over the summer. Having featured so prominently for Rovers Sharp is now at the centre of much transfer speculation. Doncaster are understandably keen to sign him, but so too its rumoured are fellow Championship clubs Burnley and Leeds United. If Rovers are to retain Sharp’s services for the 2010/11 season then they are up against some distinctly stiff competition.
In the mean-time thanks to Rovers fan and YouTube user FuzzyDuck, we can at least enjoy all of the goals he has scored in Rovers colours. Here for your delight and delcitation are all fifteen of Sharp’s Doncaster goals, hopefully, we’ll be able to add ‘so far’ to that sentence in the coming weeks.
