Doncaster Rovers player visits in the community have been highlighted as an example of best practice by the Professional Footballers Association.
The PFA have praised Rovers commitment to player engagement across the Borough and have used Rovers as an example of best practice in their annual review.
This week pupils at Kingfisher, Armthorpe Tranmoor and Saltersgate schools were visited by first team players, as the club continues its excellent work in the community to encourage potential fans of the future.
PFA Community Liaison Executive Dennis Leman said “Over the past few seasons Doncaster Rovers have continuously demonstrated their commitment to community player engagement.
“This week I had chance to witness first-hand the type of school visit Doncaster Rovers conduct and it was great to see the commitment and engagement levels the players had with the school children.
“I would like to congratulate all at Rovers for what they are doing in this field, not least Paul Dickov, the management team and the players who are clearly committed to working within their communities.”
Gavin Baldwin, Chief Executive of Doncaster Rovers FC, commented: “It is a real accolade for our player visits to be recognised by the PFA as an example of best practice.
“Our players work hard and are excellent ambassadors for the club and I know they enjoy their visits across the communities in Doncaster.
“Fan and community engagement is a priority at DRFC and I would like to congratulate and thank everyone who works hard delivering this key club initiative.”
