Rovers seek signings for Men United

26 June 2014

More than sixty football teams from across Doncaster are needed to join Men United.

 Doncaster Rovers are challenging people in the borough to sign up to take part in the huge charity tournament to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK).

The six-a-side adult tournament, which will take place on May 5 at the Keepmoat Stadium, will see each team play at least one game on the club’s main pitch.

Teams need to have a maximum squad of ten players and will compete in a knock-out style tournament to determine an overall winner. 

Prostate Cancer UK is the official charity partner of The Football League with all 72 clubs joining forces for its Men United campaign. 

Prostate cancer kills 10,000 men a year. 

Men United recently asked fans to nominate their favourite captain to represent their club in the campaign’s Hall of Fame. Legend Barry Miller was chosen as Rovers’ greatest captain and he is featured on the Men United website. 

Miller said: “The tournament at the Keepmoat Stadium is a fantastic opportunity for local fans to support a fantastic national cause.  The Men United campaign has a growing profile and it’s great to see Rovers playing their part.”

Liam Scully, chief executive of Doncaster Rovers Community Foundation, added: “This is a great opportunity for budding footballers to take to the main pitch at the Keepmoat Stadium, enjoy playing competitive games, while raising money for a great charity.”

Each team will pay £150 to take part in the tournament and all the proceeds from the event will go to PCUK. 

Teams will also get complimentary tickets to one of Doncaster Rovers’ remaining home games for the current season.
