Oldham Athletic secured the signature of Danny Rogers on a one-year deal.
Rogers spent part of pre-season on trial with Latics and caught the eye in our friendlies against Premier League outfit Burnley as well as Crewe Alexandra and, especially, in the first-half against Rochdale keeping a clean sheet before being replaced at the interval.
Most recently, Rogers applied his trade between the sticks for Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership and he featured 27 times for Killie, including playing against Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic.
He progressed through the academy at Aberdeen and managed to make three appearances for the club, and he remarkably had five loan spells away from the Pittodrie Stadium.
After a temporary spell at Airdrieonians, Rogers became the mainstay shot-stopper at Dumbarton whilst on loan in the 2014/15 campaign, keeping nine clean sheets – winning the club sponsors Player of The Year as well as the Young Player of The Season award.
Falkirk swooped in for the 6'1" goalkeeper and, once again, he showcased his talent after being named in the PFA Scotland Championship Team of the Season before the Bairns fought for his services for a second consecutive campaign following his impressive performances.
Following that, Rogers spent time on loan with St Mirren and Greenock Morton, gaining some vital experiences in the professional game and he made 29 appearances altogether between the sides.
Born in New York City, the goalkeeper has represented the Republic of Ireland U21’s on ten occasions as well as being part of the senior squad for qualifiers for the FIFA 2018 World Cup.
