Rovers and the Viking Supporters Co-operative have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) - one of the first to be agreed in Europe between a club and supporters trust.

The MOU will see the club committing to meeting with the Viking Supporters Co-operative on a regular basis throughout the year and ensure a consultation with the co-operative takes places before significant decisions such as a ground move, ownership or change to the culture of the club are made.

Gavin Baldwin, chief executive of Rovers, and Martin O'Hara, secretary of the Viking Supporters Co-operative, have signed the historic document.

Martin said: "This is a significant document as it underlines in writing the club's commitment to structured dialogue and the club's fan engagement programme, In Rovers We Trust.

"It also ensures the club consult regularly about activities that can have a significant impact on supporters such as badge changes and commercial activities. It is rare for a club to take such a formal commitment to engaging with supporters and a true testament to how Rovers operates."

Gavin added: "We're pleased to have signed the MOU with the Viking Supporters Co-operative, we already believe that we have an outstanding relationship with all our supporter groups, and this document underlines our commitment and approach to work together for the benefit of Doncaster Rovers."
