Tens of thousands of pounds were raised for charity as former players of Rovers and Leeds United rolled back the years at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The annual Eve Merton Dreams Trust match saw legends from both sides take on each other, with supporters raising sponsorship to play alongside their heroes.
With a large crowd packing out the West Stand, as well as other fundraising activities outside the stadium and in the concourses, there was a real family atmosphere at the end.
And those who came down to watch Rovers were not disappointed, as a Paul Heffernan hat-trick helped inspired his side to a 7-2 success over the Leeds outfit.
The full goalscorers were: 
29 - Paul Heffernan 1-0
39 - Paul Heffernan 2-0
47 - Noel Whelan 2-1
58 - James Hayter 3-1
61 - Paul Green 4-1
78 - Paul Heffernan 5-1
83 - James Hayter 6-1
86 - Gary McSheffrey 6-2
90 - Connor Steel (fundraiser) 7-2
