Rovers are deaf aware

17 May 2017

Doncaster Rovers staff and players have been showing their support for Deaf Awareness Week.

Deaf supporters were invited to a meeting with senior staff at the Keepmoat Stadium on Monday to discuss ways the club could enhance their matchday experience.

This is the start if an ongoing process, with further meetings planned throughout the summer.

Club Doncaster's chief operating officer Liam Scully was joined in the meeting by stadium manager Marie Hepburn and marketing manager Mark Hughesman.

Liam said: "I'd like to thank the fans who gave up their time to join us, there was plenty of food for thought.

"We pride ourselves on being an inclusive club, but it is clear there are a number of small adjustments we can make which collectively will add up to real improvements."

Rovers players Ian Lawlor, Harry Middleton and Alfie May were recently joined by students from Doncaster Deaf School to learn some basic sign language.

You can see how they got on in the video below.
