Doncaster keep Jamaican international Zach Braham

Steven Hughes

Doncaster have announced Jamaica international forward Zach Braham for the 2022 season.

Braham previously played for Doncaster in 2017 and 2018 before making the move to Hunslet. He then had a brief spell at Keighley, before returning to Hunslet and then Doncaster in 2021.

He helped the Dons reach the playoff final this year, but they were beaten by Workington Town.

The 26-year-old was also recently selected for Jamaica’s initial train-on squad before the World Cup, which ended up being postponed. He will hope to play in the World Cup when it takes place next year.

Reacting to the news, Braham told the club website: “I’m really happy to be staying at my hometown club, I want to get myself fully fit and be the best I can be next year.

“When I was here the first time I probably let myself down a little bit. But since returning I’ve worked on which elements of my game needed looking at.

“The group is very different to the one I was in the first time I was here. The experienced lads to a good job of keeping standards high.”

A role in the community for Braham

In addition to his playing duties, Braham will also be taking a coaching role with Barnsley-based club Dodworth Miners.

They play in the Yorkshire Men’s League, in Division Four.

On his new role, he added: “I’m really happy to be joining the club for the upcoming 2022 season and I’m looking forward to getting to meeting the lads and starting pre season after Christmas.

“Having spoke with Lockie (Chairman Matthew Lock) and the committee, I believe the club has achieved a lot in the past twelve months regarding their junior section. Hopefully we will be able to gain even more success with the seniors in the upcoming seasons.
