Doncaster have announced the signing of scrum-half Connor Robinson on a one-year deal for the 2022 League 1 season.

The 27-year-old arrives having departed Championship side Halifax Panthers last week.

Robinson started his career with hometown club Hull Kingston Rovers, and made one appearance for the Robins before his first stint at Halifax came in 2015.

He went on to join York, before returning to The Shay for the 2021 campaign.

Connor Robinson hungry for success

“I’m very pleased,” he said. “There have been conversations going on for a little while so it’s good to have it all sorted.

“I’ve got a couple of mates at the club who said I would enjoy it here, and once I knew opportunities at Halifax would be limited I wanted to find a new club.

“Everytime I’ve played at the Keepmoat I’ve enjoyed it and I’ve got the desire to be a success at the club.”

Robinson becomes Richard Horne’s first signing

On the signing, club chief executive Carl Hall said: “I’d like to thank Ian Croad and the Halifax club for their assistance in the making the deal happen.

“I would also like to thank Connor’s agent, Graeme Taylor for his part in bringing the player to the Dons as we know there was a lot of Championship interest in him.

“After speaking with Connor, his enthusiasm to sign for the club meant I had to do everything in my powers to get the deal across the line.”
