Grant McCann says he tried to bring new Doncaster Rovers man to Peterborough United

Doncaster Rovers completed the signing of full-back Brad Halliday from Cambridge United on a free transfer on Friday after his contract with the League Two club expired at the end of the season.

Doncaster Rovers have completed a deal to sign full-back Brad Halliday on a free transfer. The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Keepmoat Stadium and will officially join the club on July 1st.

Now, speaking to the Doncaster Free Press upon the announcement, Doncaster boss Grant McCann has revealed that he has been a fan of Halliday for some time now, revealing that he tried to sign him in the past during his time as manager of Peterborough United.

“I’ve kept an eye on his progress in the last few years,” the Donny boss said.

“I tried to sign him when I was at Peterborough but we couldn’t afford him because he was under contract. But he became a free agent. He had numerous clubs at this level wanting to take him and I’m really pleased to get it over the line because he’s going to be excellent for us.”

Halliday has spent his playing career playing in League Two for Cambridge United, York City, Accrington Stanley and Hartlepool United. He has played 173 times in League Two, with 111 of those coming with Cambridge United, where he played 123 times in total.

Now, he will be looking to test himself in League One and try to help Doncaster improve on last season’s 6th place finish and play-off semi-final defeat.
