Richie Wellens becomes the final player to be voted into the Rovers Hall of Fame as part of the 2019/20 season’s 140 year celebrations.

Wellens saw off close competition from Rob Jones, Andy Butler and John Marquis to be declared the fans’ standout Rovers player of the 2010s.

In July 2007, Rovers signed the combative and talented midfielder and he missed only one game in the 2007-08 League campaign, and despite struggling with an injury he starred in the League One play-off campaign, culminating in success in the Wembley final against Leeds United.

Wellens said: “I'm very proud to be included in the hall of fame.

“When I went to speak to the club before signing there were four or five other clubs that could have been considered better options but when I went there and met Sean O'Driscoll and I knew it was a special club.

“Getting promotion that year was brilliant, and the fans took to me straight away.

“I'm very proud to win the vote and hopefully Doncaster Rovers can get back to where they belong in the Championship soon.”
