Worksop Town training ground experience

20 February 2014

Under 9's enjoy a special visit to Cantley Park

Doncaster Rovers were delighted to welcome Worksop Town under 9’s to the Training Ground Complex yesterday afternoon, where they were treated to a special training ground experience as a result of winning the Group Experience ticket Leader board last season (2012/13).


The boys from Worksop Town kicked off the morning with an action packed training session with our Rovers Foundation coaches, before taking time out to watch the first team training session in action. 

With a quick stop to warm up and refuel, the boys sat down in the canteen used by the Rovers first team to a lunch consisting of sandwiches and soup courtesy of the Rovers chefs.

Then came the highlight of the day, as the budding footballers were able to meet their heroes. The first team players spent time with Worksop Town, signing autographs and having their pictures taken.

Ross Turnbull was kind enough to give the young goalkeeper from Worksop Town, a pair of his own goalkeeper gloves which he also signed for James as a souvenir from the day. The team also had their photo taken with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, ahead of his Final Third Development League debut on 26th February against Rotherham United at the Keepmoat Stadium. 

Doncaster Rovers would like to thank Worksop Town, not only did you impress our coaches during the training session but you represented your club extremely well throughout the day. A thank you also to the managers who helped organise the visit and to the parents who came along to support the boys.  

“We would like to pass on our thanks to everyone involved in our visit today, including the players and staff, the boys had an absolutely fantastic time and the experience far exceeded any of our expectations.”

Andy Parnell – Worksop Town Manager
