Fairhurst To Show His Doncaster Pedigree
Saturday will see Doncaster Rovers youth prodigy Waide Fairhurst step up and deliver against Aldershot Town. Waide who also got 4 in 10 for Shrewsbury Town will finally shrug off his previous fitness issues and recapture the form that saw him bag a brace on his Sincil Bank debut to fire the Imps back into the play-off places.
Rose Tinted has good feelings about Saturday
A prolific goal machine for Doncaster, throughout his youth, Waide scored two goals in two starts after signing his first 3-year pro deal. It was hard for the youngster to break into the Rovers first 11 in the Championship, but his debut came against Coventry before he supplied an assist against Palace, then scored against WBA and Ipswich. With chances few and far between in the Championship, Waide went on loan to Shrewsbury, in October 2009, grabbing 4 goals in 10 appearances.
Alas he was forced to cut the loan short and returned to Rovers in the December thanks to injury. After 6 weeks out with a broken toes he got two goalless opportunities against WBA and Ipswich before being loaned to Southend and Hereford, bagging a brace on his debut against Cheltenham and scoring two games later in the 1-1 draw with Northampton.
Simmo signed him for Macc and it is fair to say he began to blossom after Gary left. Last season Waide hit 13 goals (plus 3 assists) in 43 games for the Silkmen, including braces against Woking and Braintree. He is not the tallest, but he has a competitive streak about him. His first touch and shooting skills are certainly championship level first class fox-in-the-box instints suggesting has a massive part to play in Lincoln’s play-off push this season.
Come on Waide this is your chance to shine, you know you have the quality to become a legend at Sincil Bank!
