Taylor Richards joined from Manchester City last summer, and will spend the 2020/21 campaign at Doncaster Rovers.

Taylor Richards has completed a season-long loan to Doncaster Rovers.

The Seagulls midfielder arrived on the south coast from Manchester City in July 2019 and scored on his debut in a 1-0 win over Crawley Town in a pre-season friendly.

The 19-year-old made 18 Premier League 2 appearances for Simon Rusk’s under-23 side last term, finding the net six times.

The former England under-17 international was also on target in the 2-0 win over Southend United in the EFL Trophy, as Rusk’s men reached the knockout stages of the competition.

Technical director Dan Ashworth said, “This move is a great opportunity for Taylor to get some good senior experience in a competitive League One environment with Doncaster Rovers.

“We will be monitoring his progress closely and wish him all the best for the season ahead.”
