A firm favourite of the club and fans, Robert Marsden will return for unfinished business for the 2019/20 season. A native of Doncaster and therefore local to Sheffield, the forward has enjoyed increasing success with the Sharks who saw him average 14 points a game last season.
Although Marsden signed a two-year contract last year the club’s confirmation that he will be back has delighted head coach Atiba Lyons.
“I have said it before this guy works so hard. He is a true role model for the young guys coming through. His abilities are far beyond what he believes which is his only downside,” joked Lyons.
Marsden will not be joined this season by fellow Doncaster favourite Mathew Martin. Who has taken the decision to retire from the game.
“I’m thrilled to be back for another year, i feel like we have unfinished business and with the adjustments coach has made i feel very optimistic” said Marsden. “I’m disappointed Matt (Martin) won’t be joining me again, he had a great year, sometimes life changes direction and we wish him well,” said Marsden.
