It looked a good move for him, re-joining his former Bournemouth boss Sean O'Driscoll, and in two seasons he made fifty league appearances for Donny.
The last of those was against Newcastle in March, coming on as a late sub, and four days later he was loaned to Leyton Orient, a loan that ultimately run until the end of the season. He played nine times for the Os and returned to Doncaster to learn that he was being released.
A move back to Leyton Orient seemed the more likely, but, with Spicer still based in Manchester, he's opted for a move to Notts County where he admitted he was impressed with manager Craig Short and his ambition for the club whilst also citing the fact that he knows Dave Kevan who remains the number two at Meadow Lane.
Spicer, now 26, has signed a two year deal.
