Doncaster Rovers manager Richie Wellens has taken a number of players on trial this summer – including recently released Ipswich Town midfielder Emyr Huws.
Wellens has returned to the club in the dugout after spending two separate spells at the Keepmoat Stadium as a player, and he’s looking to bolster a squad that has seen some big departures this summer.
And 27-year-old Huws could be set to be given a rescue package in his career by Wellens after having a tough time of things at the Tractor Boys in recent years.
According to the Doncaster Free Press, Huws is one of four trialists looking to prove himself at the Yorkshire side following his departure from Portman Road after four-and-a-half years.
In that time, Huws played just 44 times in the league and suffered unfortunate luck from injuries, with his final campaign in Suffolk seeing him feature just 12 times in all competitions.

After being linked with a move to League Two side Colchester United alongside several other ex-Ipswich players, the 11-cap Wales international could be set to be given a fresh chance in the third tier of English football – if he can impress sufficiently enough.
This could be the lifeline that Huws needs to resurrect his career.
After coming through Man City’s academy, Huws showed promise in the Championship, especially in a loan spell at Huddersfield Town, and at times he looked like he could make it into the top flight.
But then a bad move to Cardiff happened and injuries then started to occur on a regular basis, so the last four years of Huws’ career have been a bit of a nightmare.
Huws now needs to rebuild and if he can do enough this week under the watchful eye of Wellens, then we could see somewhat a rebirth of his talents – and at the age of 27 it’s not too late for Huws to make an impact in League One.
