Doncaster sign Peter Fox

Doncaster have added some reinforcements to their squad with the arrival of winger Peter Fox and half-back Ben Reynolds at the club.

Fox, 30, was without a club, after spending a brief spell at Halifax in the Championship in 2014.

Prior to that, he had played in Super League with Wakefield and Hull Kingston Rovers, and he has also been capped by England.

“Peter is someone I have known for a long time from when we played at Hull KR together,” said Doncaster coach Paul Cooke.

“He brings pace and power and adds something different to what we already have within the group.

“He is a really good lad, he has played for England at international level and that level of experience will stand us in good stead for the rest of the campaign.”

Fox is available to play for the Dons in the Easter Monday clash with Whitehaven.

Reynolds joins the Dons on loan from Leigh Centurions, initially for a one-month period.

The goalkicking half-back, who can also play at full-back, has found first-team opportunities hard to come by since joining Leigh from Castleford last year.

He spent time with York City Knights on dual registration from Cas last season, and impressed Cooke during that spell in Championship One.

“Ben is a player I have kept my eye on, he was the young player of the year last season in Championship One with York City Knights, which led to Leigh signing him,” said Cooke.

“Ben needs to play, he is a very good player with a lot of talent and he will defiantly add something to the group during his initial month with us.

“I’d like to thank Leigh for allowing Ben to join us on loan.”
