Rory Fallon joins Bristol Rovers

Ex Iron striker Rory Fallon has joined Bristol Rovers on non-contract terms.

Fallon, who scored three goals in four appearances for Scunthorpe last season, remained at Glanford Park until the summer despite not being offered fresh terms by the club last January.

He took part in the Iron’s pre season campaign but a cruciate injury ruled him out of making an appearance. Fallon has since been training with the Pirates and has now won a contract with the League Two club.

“I had a cruciate injury, which set me back a bit, and I’ve worked really hard to get to this point,” Fallon told Bristol Rovers’ official website.

“I’ve had a great reception from the lads and appreciate the fact that the gaffer has let me train here as it’s not always easy to find a club willing to let you do that.”

Fallon has been capped 18 times by New Zealand, and represented his country at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

“He’s a very experienced footballer and someone who I would call an old-fashioned striker,” added Rovers manager Darrell Clarke.
