Jim said: “I’m excited about the opportunities that lay ahead.

“I’m extremely proud to be the Club Doncaster Foundation CEO. The Foundation has come a long way in the past 4 years under the leadership of Liam Scully who nurtured a fantastic culture and energy within the team and their mission to ‘Challenge – Inspire – Motivate’, aligned with the team’s passion and dedication to be the very best they can be is very evident.

“The roots of the Foundation are firmly in football, however the branches are spreading across many other sports and high quality physical activity, training and educational programmes.

“Therefore I’m determined that the Foundation continues to develop and play an even greater role in improving the lives of people across Doncaster.”  
The foundation is about to open its doors to 135 students who will be studying on a full time basis as well as continuing to deliver its outreach work across Doncaster and Doncaster Rovers CEO Gavin Baldwin lauded the new arrival.

“We were delighted with the competitive recruitment process and, furthermore, in our abilities to attract an outstanding candidate of the calibre of Jim,” he said.

“To add someone of his experience working at national governing body level will prove invaluable as the Foundation looks to continue to grow in to new areas such as an expanding sporting range.”
