Dons use cross-code neighbours ground as concept expands.
Club Doncaster’s name continues to grow as the Rugby League arm of the concept ventured in to new territory when Doncaster RLFC used Doncaster Knights’ home, Castle Park, for a one-off league game.
Due to a slight delay with the pitch renovation at the Keepmoat Stadium, The Dons were granted use of the facilities on Armthorpe Road, and took full advantage by running out 22-16 winners over Whitehaven in front of a crowd of 605 fans.
Doncaster Rovers chief executive, Gavin Baldwin, said: “We are really excited by the number of Club Doncaster members we have taking advantage of the unique offering that represents value for money.
“We are also excited to have acquired the Foundation and are looking forward to assist this to do even greater work in our communities as we seek to touch more people’s lives in Doncaster to make this a great place to work, live and play.”
Club Doncaster aims to unite the sporting clubs of the proud sporting town of Doncaster and provide the local community with success which they can feel part of on and off the respective fields of play.

As for the Dons - who sport the Doncaster Rovers badge on their playing kits - they currently sit fourth in the Kingstone Press Championship and are looking to secure a top eight finish.
Carl Hall, chief executive of Doncaster RLFC said: “It was an outstanding day and went really well, helped of course by the result. Everyone from the sponsors to the fans and players really enjoyed it.”
The Dons, who have six of their remaining 9 games at home, are next in action at the Keepmoat Stadium against table-toppers Leigh Centurions in a must see clash on July 13th and tickets can be bought HERE.
