Beryl celebrates her 90th birthday in style

19 October 2018

Beryl Swallow celebrated her 90th birthday in style at Doncaster Rovers as she and her family enjoyed the hospitality experience against Fleetwood Town.

The Swallow family were welcomed into the Jibba Jabba restaurant with drink on arrival, before enjoying a sumptuous three-course-meal and luxurious seats for a perfect view of the game. 

Despite the result, Beryl’s day was made even more special as she was surprised with the chance to present Legends’ Club Man of the Match winner, Herbie Kane with his accolade.

Son, Jeff, who arranged the day said: “We had a wonderful day celebrating my mum’s birthday with Doncaster Rovers. We were all most impressed with the friendliness shown towards us and the level of hospitality. 

“Everyone at the club contributed magnificently towards making Saturday a truly memorable one for my mum.  Yes, it was a shame that the result was not a good one, but I guess you can’t have everything.”

Head of commercial Jon Warburton added: “Occasions such as this make me feel so much pride about the work we do. Beryl was an incredible guest to have, and we’re so glad she enjoyed the day as much as we did. 

“It was a lovely touch for her to present Herbie with Man of the Match. I think it just added to her day even though we didn’t get the result we were hoping for on the pitch and that just shows Doncaster Rovers is more than just a football club.”
