Jack joins Derry on loan

Doyle makes move to League of Ireland club until June 2018

22 February 2018

Rovers defender Jack Doyle has today joined Derry City on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old full-back, who has been with Rovers since the age of 10, will link up with the League of Ireland Premier Division club until June 2018.

After progressing through the club's youth ranks to become a regular member of Damien Johnson's Under-23s, Doyle made his first team debut as a second-half substitute in the Carabao Cup victory over Coventry City back in August.

The left-back was then handed his first senior start in Rovers' 1-0 victory over Stoke City in the opening Checkatrade Trophy group game at Ewood Park three weeks later.

Doyle, who signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal with the club in January 2017, is expected to go straight into the Derry squad for their trip to Sligo Rovers on Friday night.

The defender could come up against one of his Rovers Under-23s team-mates, goalkeeper Aaron Dillon, when the Candystripes take on Bray Wanderes on March 16th.
