Doncaster Rovers Football Club opened its doors to the people of Doncaster, allowing supporters an insight into the home of their beloved football club.

Although held on Wednesday afternoon running until the early evening, the event still proved popular with all people in the town turning up as and when they could.

The event, which was held mainly in the Bartercard (East) Stand of the stadium, proved a massive hit with the locals with plenty of activities taking place throughout the afternoon.

Doncaster Rovers would like to thank fans that turned out last night to support the event and a special thank you to the junior season ticket holders and football legends that took part in games on the pitch.

Entertainment for both young and old alike was well received with the ever-popular speed kick test proving a big hit. With members of the first team squad including James Coppinger and Tommy SpurrĀ  taking on our younger fans at table football, pool and table tennis.

Fans were also invited to have a drink up in the commercial lounge, have a look around the boxes and even have their photo taken with the League 1 Champions trophy and Captain Rob Jones. Not forgetting members of the squad working in the ticket office and club shop during the evening.

One feature of the Open Day which proved very popular with supporters were tours around the Keepmoat Stadium - led by staff from the Doncaster Rovers Community Sports & Education Foundation and various other members of Rovers staff. The tours took supporters around the Doncaster Rovers dressing rooms, the tunnel and the dugouts - as well as the hospitality areas.

However, the highlight of the day was the arrival of Paul Dickov and the first-team squad. The players took part in an open training session on the pitch to give supporters an insight into the work that they have been doing during the pre-season. All the players spent over an hour signing items for supporters, as well as chatting to individuals about the season ahead and posing for photographs.
