DRFC Paynter looking to fire Rovers back up

New signing Billy Paynter says he is hoping to fire Doncaster Rovers back into the championship.

The striker has signed for Rovers on a two-year deal after training with the club recently.

After two frustrating seasons in the championship at Leeds United, where he scored just three times in 28 appearances, he is looking to help Rovers bounce straight back into the second tier of English football at the first time of asking.

Following his signing, Paynter said on the official website, "I'm pleased to be here. I came down and trained with the lads a couple of weeks ago and I've signed today.

"It's a good set-up here with a good bunch of lads and I'm looking to help fire Donny back up."

Paynter is proven at League One level having scored 29 goals for Swindon Town in the 2009/10 season that saw the Wiltshire club reach the play-off final.

He spent three seasons with Swindon, reaching double figures in each of those three seasons.

The 28 year old scored 51 goals in 137 appearances at the County Ground.

He has made 382 appearances in a career spanning 11 years at Port Vale, Hull City, Southend United, Bradford City, Swindon Town and Leeds and he is just four goals short of 100 career goals.
