Darren Moore and Matty Blair have praised the Foundation at Club Doncaster's Football Welcomes project which has helped improve the physical and mental wellbeing of people seeking asylum in Doncaster.

Speaking earlier in the season, Moore said that projects like Football Welcomes are just one small example of the work that the football club and wide Club Doncaster family put into the community.

“Projects like this just go to show the value the club puts on the community and the people within the community,” he said.

“We clearly show the value that we have for people – and that is really important. People know that whatever background you’re deemed to have, there’s a real equality straight across here at Club Doncaster and that’s great.

“We reach out to everybody in the community and I endorse that – it’s great work and we’ll continue to do better.

“Football clubs have a massive power to get positive messages into the community and to see this club doing that is wonderful. At this football club, we’re all one big family.”

Blair – who is heavily involved in the community as a Fit Rovers ambassador – also praised the work of the Foundation staff behind the scenes for delivering life-changing projects.

“For me, football is the one true sport that is an international language,” he said.

“You can come around and have a kick around with anyone and Club Doncaster will provide anyone the opportunity to play football and feel safe and welcome.

“I get to see a lot of the work behind the scenes with how Club Doncaster engage with the community, and the Football Welcomes project is just another cog which shows how important Club Doncaster is to our community. I’m very proud to be part of that.”
