Doncaster boss Grant McCann says plenty of homework has been done to ensure that goalkeeper Ted Sharman-Lowe is a perfect fit for the Rovers squad.

The 21-year-old has signed on a season-long loan from Premier League giants Chelsea. but goalkeeping coach Kyle Letheren was tasked with learning all about Sharman-Lowe, both on and off the pitch, with McCann impressed by his findings.

“We feel like we’re getting one of the best young up-and-coming goalkeepers in England. CHELSEA think really highly of him,” he told the Rovers website

“I think it’s a really nice fit – the way Teddy is as a person, his temperament and the way he plays as well. He’s very comfortable with the ball at his feet but not only that he’s a very good shotstopper, he’s good at coming out and commanding his area

“Kyle has sat me down and shown me all of this and I trust his judgement. Goalkeeper is a unique position He has to fit in to what we want to do.

“When me and Kyle sat down to speak about goalkeepers, we’d seen a lot of Teddy and we just think he fits us perfectly.

“He’s lived away from home for a while now so he’s grown up and matured now. It’s a good fit for us.

“I’m really pleased.”

But McCann is well aware that Sherman-Lowe knows that he will need to battle for his place in the side: “When you have a taste of it at senior level and then you go back to U23s, it’s not the same,” he added. “Teddy is ready for it.

“He wants to get himself up here and move up here. He’s ready to work hard and fight for the position.

“We’ve got four very good goalkeepers here now with Teddy, Lawsy, Louis and young Jake Oram.

“We’ve got really good competition, like we have across the team, and we’re strong in there.”
