Kyle Hurst joins Doncaster Rovers

Kyle Hurst joins Doncaster Rovers

Blues can confirm that Kyle Hurst has joined Doncaster Rovers in a permanent transfer.

The 20-year-old was given permission to trial with the League Two side during pre-season and featured in three of their friendly fixtures.

The two clubs have agreed a deal which will see Hurst swap the Blues for the Reds and in doing so brings his long association in B9 to an end.

Hailing from Milton Keynes, the tricky winger joined Blues’ pre-academy system, prompting his family to relocate in support of his ambitions.

He would ascend through the Club’s Academy system, developing a reputation as a hany ball-carrying winger.

His most memorable moment in a Blues shirt came during a fourth round FA Youth Cup tie against Barnsley in which Hurst netted a dramatic winner for Paul Robinson’s side who had been reduced to nine men earlier in the tie.

Hurst signed professional terms in the summer of 2020 and despite never making a senior appearance for the Club, appeared 15 times for Steve Spooner’s Under-23s side. That before ending the season on a youth-loan with Southern League Premier Division side, Alverchurch.

He now links up with on-loan Blues striker Josh Andrews and former Blues forward Gary McSheffrey who is the current Manager at the Eco-Power Stadium.

Best of luck, Kyle.
