Doncaster are delighted to announce that Paul Cooke, Dave Scott, Steve Snitch and Mike Emmett have all put pen to paper on new contracts to remain with the Dons until at least the end of the 2015 Kingstone Press Championship season.

The team has performed above and beyond all expectations this campaign, sitting in third place in the table and can still finish in second place, should Doncaster beat Batley Bulldogs at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday and Keighley Cougars beat Featherstone Rovers.  You can purchase tickets for Sunday’s match by clicking HERE.

Cooke, the clubs player coach took over the reins at the Keepmoat Stadium last October and has taken the side to the next level, beginning the season looking to finish in the top eight, the Dons can now not finish any lower than fourth.

The Dons have been the only team in the division to defeat leaders Leigh Centurions, whilst have also recorded impressive victories over Sheffield Eagles, Halifax and Featherstone Rovers.

The clubs home form has also been a highlight, winning 10 out of their 12 matches so far at the Keepmoat Stadium, a place which has been a real fortress for the club this campaign and will be looking to replicate that in 2015.  Remember you can be part of all the action as we take on the likes of London Broncos and Bradford Bulls next year, with season ticket prices starting at just £130 per adult and £10 per junior, click HERE for more information.

Full back Dave Scott has been ever present for Doncaster this campaign, he returned to the club at the start of the season full of confidence from an inspiring performance at the Rugby League World Cup with Scotland.

Scott who initially joined the club on loan in 2013, was one of Cooke’s first permanent signings for the Dons and has gone on to score 11 tries in the league so far this campaign.

Co-captain Mike Emmett has also committed to the club for next season and has also played a key role in the clubs impressive campaign.

The loose forward’s efforts in the middle of the park and trademark tries from dummy half have secured the Dons valuable points this season.

Former Super League and Challenge Cup finalist Steve Snitch joined the club back in May and has made an impressive start to his Dons career, helping Cooke’s side cement a top four finish. 

The former Huddersfield, Castleford and Wakefield man came out of retirement to sign for Doncaster and has now committed himself to another year.

He has been in great try scoring form of late, notching up six tries in his last four appearances in the Championship.

You can see all the action next campaign and with promotion and relegation reintroduced to and from Super League there is everything to play for! For season ticket information click HERE.
