Doncaster Dons have added Scottish international Dave Scott to their ranks after he impressed during two loan spells with the club this year.

The winger quickly established himself as a regular try scorer and useful place kicker during his second stint with the Championship club.

The 20-year-old has represented Scotland on four occasions, has two tries and ten goals to his name, and was named in their 2013 World Cup squad this week.

Unveiled at the Dons’ end of season presentation dinner on Friday night, Scott joins from Featherstone Rovers - a side who were also keen to retain his services.

Scott joined Rovers from Hull KR at the end of the 2011 season and won their reserve player of the year award.

“I’m really happy to be signing for Doncaster after enjoying a great finish to the end of the season,” said Scott.

“I felt I joined the club at the right time for my second loan spell as they were playing really well after winning a couple of games which ultimately turned their season around.

“The lads are a great bunch, we have a laugh at training but we ensure that we get through our work and prepare well for the game.

“It’s great to play at the Keepmoat Stadium every other week and the club have a great set of supporters who are passionate about the game.”

Dons’ player-coach Paul Cooke added: “Dave had a great loan spell with us at the end of the season and was scoring points for fun.

“He knows where the try line is, can certainly kick goals well and is a hard working player who wants to succeed in the game.”
