Several Rovers players have been confirmed as Foundation ambassadors for the 2018/19 season.

Andy Butler, James Coppinger, Matty Blair, Tommy Rowe, Danny Andrew, Malik Wilks, Alfie May, Ian Lawlor, John Marquis, Danny Amos and Will Longbottom will all take on ambassador roles for the Foundation, specializing in different areas of work.

The ambassador roles will give participants across Doncaster the chance to engage with their favourite footballers and also allow players to work in areas they have identified as ones they enjoy.

Health and wellbeing manager Nick Gillott said: “Having player ambassador roles enhances the work we do at the foundation massively, and we’re really happy that so many Rovers players are interested in taking their community roles further.

“We have a fantastic relationship with the club; the manager and his staff are always willing to help us showcase our sessions so this is just another example of the great partnership.

“Matty Blair is our health ambassador, specifically Fit Rovers and the difference he has already made this season is huge. He comes down to sessions and encourages the men on the course, even getting involved by helping record their week one and eight measurements of weight, height and blood pressure.”

Matty added: “I’m delighted to be the health/Fit Rovers ambassador for this season; I spent quite a bit of time with the participants last season and really enjoyed watching them reach their goals, so to have more of a direct involvement this year is great.”
