DRFC O'Driscoll statement released by LMA

DRFC O'Driscoll statement released by LMA

Former Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll has issued a statement through the League Manager`s Association after the club and O`Driscoll came to a settlement agreement.

O`Driscoll was dismissed as Rovers boss in September after picking up just one point from their opening seven games of this season.

It followed a disastrous end to the 2010/11 season, which saw them win just three games from a possible twenty-five in the championship, finishing just one place outside the relegation zone.

O`Driscoll took pride in his achievements whilst at Doncaster, especially with the style they played football.

"Obvious highlights include promotion from League 1 after giving the supporters a truly memorable experience at the play-off final against Leeds United at Wembley Stadium and claiming the Football League trophy after victory over Bristol Rovers at The Millennium Stadium. But really, it was the manner and style in which we accomplished those feats - by playing attractive passing football, which is what we took most pride in," O`Driscoll said in part of his statement.

His dismissal brought to an end five successful years with Doncaster that saw them win their first domestic trophy in their history when they lifted the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy in 2007 in his first season.

The following season he returned Doncaster to the second tier of English football for the first time in fifty years when they beat Leeds United in the League One play off final at Wembley.

O`Driscoll then established Doncaster in the championship, keeping them in the championship for three successive seasons despite their tight financial restraints compared to other championship sides.

You can find the statement released on behalf of Sean O`Driscoll on the official website of the League Manager`s Association.

All seemed to be done very messily in the end. Don't think one of the best managers in our history deserved that despite how poor we were.

All I can say is thank`s for giving us the most attractive football I have ever seen from Donny, (the Wembley playoff against Leeds will stick with me for the rest of my life). If it hadn`t been for all those injuries I`me sure he would still be with us. Good luck Sean.
