Rovers host presentations

13 June 2017

Rovers players have been helping the Doncaster and District Junior Sunday Football League celebrate their success this season.

Players Andy Butler, Reece Fielding, Louis Jones, as well as head of recruitment Russ Wilcox, all gave up their time to hand over medals and trophies to local teams.

All four played in the DDJSFL before making it as professionals and were happy to go back to their roots.

The league held eight presentation events across three evenings at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Martyn Wilson, DDJSFL secretary, said: “This is the sixth year we have held our end-of-season awards at the Keepmoat Stadium, and it was our best yet.

“I’d like to thank Club Doncaster for their support, and hope the presence of Rovers players inspired some of our youngsters to strive to follow in their footsteps.”

Butler, who was named PFA Community Player of the Year at the EFL Awards, said: “It was great to meet some of the areas young players, I coach in the league and played in it as a youngster so it means a lot to me.

“Every night we had Rovers players who used to take part in these leagues every Sunday morning present to hand over the medals - which I hope shows these young people that if they have the skill and work hard enough there is a path from the local parks to the Keepmoat Stadium.”
