The day promises to be wonderful event and is in support of PCUK (Prostate Cancer UK) costing £40 per team, with all proceeds going to the PCUK Charity.
Each child will receive a certificate for taking part and have the opportunity to have a picture taken with Donny Dog.
The event is open to football teams at Under 7’s, 8’s and 9’s (9am – noon) AND Under 10’s, 11’s and 12’s (1pm – 4pm).
Chief Executive of the Doncaster Rovers Foundation, Liam Scully urged sides not to miss out on a “significant event” which enhances the Clubs “pride” at working with the local community.
The aim is to have 10 teams per age group consisting of 7 players who will play a total of 9 games. Details for the format will be sent once teams have signed up.
This is the first of many events the Rovers Community Team are launching with the development of a Club Ambassador Scheme aimed to help local amateur clubs: raise funds, attract new players, develop local school links and offer continuous professional development for coaches.
The closing date for entries will be Wednesday 9th July.
