FOLLOWING PROMOTION TO League One, Doncaster Rovers have today announced the release of five players including long-serving Irish midfielder Paul Keegan.

The 32-year-old spent the last six years at the Keepmoat Stadium, helping the Yorkshire club back to the third tier, but hasn’t had his contract renewed ahead of next season.

Keegan, the former Drogheda United and Bohemians midfielder, was the second longest-serving player at Doncaster after joining in 2011 following a successful trial period.

The Dubliner featured in just 10 games for Darren Ferguson’s side this season as they finished third in League Two.

In total, Keegan played 116 games for the Yorkshire club and was part of the side which won the League One title in 2012/13.

Keegan, Gary McSheffrey, Aaron Taylor-Sinclair, Joe Pugh and Joey McCormick have all been released while a further five first-team players have been made available for transfer as Doncaster begin preparations for a return to League One.

The former Ireland U16, U21 and U23 international enjoyed five years in the League of Ireland with Drogheda and then Bohs before earning a move to Doncaster.

He helped Drogheda win the League of Ireland title in 2007 and then played a role in Bohemians’ league success two years later. His CV also boasts three Setanta Sports Cups, a League of Ireland Cup and a FAI Cup winner’s medal.
