Doncaster Rovers have signed forward Kieran Sadlier on a free transfer, as confirmed by their official club website today.

The 24-year-old, who left Cork City at the end of their season, has signed an 18-month contract with the League One side.

The Irish winger started his career as a youngster at Cambridge United before he was snapped up by West Ham United in 2005. He rose through the youth ranks with the London side but never made a senior appearance for them.

Sadlier left the Hammers in January 2015 to join St Mirren and spent seven months playing for them in the Scottish Premier League before moving back to England to sign for Peterborough United.

However, he played just once for the Posh before he was loaned out to FC Halifax Town. Sadlier then moved onto Sligo Rovers in January 2016 and spent a year-and-a-half there, scoring a combined 18 goals

Cork City moved to sign him in July 2017 and he hit the ground running immediately. He scored 31 goals in 67 games altogether making him one of the most prolific players in the Irish league.

Sadlier will now be hoping to take his opportunity in England with Doncaster Rovers now. He has told the Donny website, “It means a lot to have signed, I’ve done well over the past 18 months in Ireland and I’m really looking forward to joining Doncaster. Grant (McCann) has seen that I’ve been doing well and tracked my progress, we’ve been talking for a while and agreed on a deal”.
