Veteran goalkeeper Neil Sullivan has signed a new one-year contract extension until 2013 at Doncaster.

The 41-year-old's performances have earned him a deal which will take him into his 25th season as a professional.

Sullivan began the campaign as second-choice behind Gary Woods and then, having reclaimed his place in the first team, found himself back on the bench after Chris Kirkland joined on loan from Wigan.

But an injury to Kirkland saw Sullivan back in the team against Blackpool and Portsmouth.

Sullivan, who has played for Wimbledon, Tottenham, Chelsea and Leeds, has made more than 200 appearances for Rovers since joining in 2007.
