And Doncaster confirmed the news with a statement on their official website. It read:
"We can confirm that this afternoon the club received a letter from John Ryan resigning as chairman of Doncaster Rovers. Everyone at the club would like to thank John for the outstanding work he has done as chairman and for his hard work and efforts through the years."
