Players Go Back To School

11 November 2013

A number of school children from across the Borough received a special visit today from the Rovers Roadshow.



Pupils at Kingfisher, Armthorpe Tranmoor and Saltersgate were visited by a team from Rovers, as the club continue their excellent work in the community and encourage potential fans of the future. 

 

The pupils met first team players, who took part in a Q and A session, as well as playing the Doncaster Rovers board game – which has been specially designed for school visits. 


All the children participating in today’s activities will be invited to take part in a special match day experience at Rovers forthcoming game against QPR as well as receiving discounted family tickets for the game. 


Gavin Baldwin, Chief Executive of Doncaster Rovers FC, said: “It is very important to us to engage with all members of the local community and we do a tremendous amount of work in schools across Doncaster.  


“Our players are great ambassadors for the club and I know they enjoy visiting the schools and meeting the pupils and teachers. 


“Our fan and community engagement is seen as best practice by the PFA who have attended one of school visits today, which is fantastic and an accolade that we are all proud of. 


“Hopefully today’s visits will generate a number of long standing supporters of Doncaster Rovers and I am sure we will see an increased number of young fans at the Keepmoat Stadium for the game against QPR.”
