RIP John Dowie

28 January 2016

Former Rovers player passes away.

Doncaster Rovers were saddened to learn of the passing of former player John Dowie, aged 60 years old.


Formerly on the books of Rangers as a youngster, Dowie spent four years at Fulham before heading back north of the border to Celtic – where he became good friends with long serving Rovers player Billy Russell.


Dowie, who made his debut in a 2-1 win over Northampton in August 1979, made 25 appearances for Rovers over the subsequent two seasons, scoring two goals.


The thoughts of the Club are with John’s family and friends.
