Bradford City midfield Dave Syers has today signed a two-year contract with League One side Doncaster Rovers following the expiry of his contract at Valley Parade. The 24-year-old made 59 appearances during his time with the Bantams and he scored an impressive tally of 12 goals. He originally signed on non-contract terms with City on 10 August 2010, before making his professional debut for them that same day, in a 2–1 League Cup victory over Nottingham Forest, in which Syers scored the first goal to take the game into extra-time. At the end of his first season as a professional he was named the Player’s Player of the Year.
Syers said of the move to the Keepmoat Stadium: “I came down here and met Dean (Saunders) and ever since then there’s been no looking back, it’s an unbelievable club and Dean really sold it to me – after meeting him It was a case of when can I sign and not if.”
