Doncaster Rovers have joined the Hedgehog Friendly Football league for the 2018/19 Sky Bet League One season in association with the British Hedgehog Preservation Society.
Rovers join fellow football clubs such as Arsenal, Barnsley, Burton Albion, Newcastle United, Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and many more, battling it out to preserve hedgehogs in rewards for league points.
The league is designed to award points to teams who take part in different incentives, set by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, to climb the table such as using stickers on the clubs lawn mowers, photoshoot with players and much more.
Rovers currently sit seventh in the division on two points, although a plan is in place to take over the top of the table in a short space of time.
Marketing assistant Michael Burton said: “We were asked by a supporter to become part of the league and joined without hesitation. Hedgehog preservation is something we are proud to be a part of, and Club Doncaster will ultimately help to preserve hedgehogs.
“Although it is light hearted and a little bit of fun, we’re still competitive and want to be at the top of the division both in Sky Bet League One and the Friendly Football Hedgehog league.”
