Speaking about the scheme the Foundation Community Manager Gareth Cook said: “The club already has a very good relationship with the local junior clubs in the area, but we want to strengthen that even further and it is a key role of ours to help support volunteers who give up their time to produce future stars and inspire children and young people to keep active.”

“We were really pleased with the success of the first meeting held on Tuesday and we look forward to welcoming and helping new clubs throughout Doncaster.”
