George visited the Keepmoat Stadium on Monday to collect the prize which was presented to him by football administrator Suzanne Uttley.
Speaking about the win, he said: “I’m really pleased I’ve won the jackpot, it came as a big surprise when we received a phone call from the club this morning.
“I’ve won a few smaller prizes on the lottery in the past, but nothing like this, I’m absolutely delighted.
“The Alliance is a really good scheme and helps the youngsters coming through at the club; I have an allotment which backs on to the training ground so I often see them in action.
“I’m going straight to the bank now to deposit the cheque! I’d like to use the money to treat my wife and go on a cruise that we have been on for the last few years.”
The Alliance is preparing for its annual draw which will see one lucky winner scoop a huge £10,000 sum in front of the Keepmoat Stadium crowd on 12th December when Rovers host Crewe Alexandra.
Supporters have until Monday 26th October 2015 to join and be in with a chance of winning and all Rovers Alliance members are included in the weekly Rovers Lottery draws.
