Rovers have revealed their new special edition third kit for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.
The shirt has been designed by club legend James Coppinger alongside Elite Pro Sports, and is now available both in-store at Frenchgate and online.
Coppinger is now in his final season with the club, and has spent time helping put together something which would prove to be very unique.
The shirt is mainly gold with a black and white sash to include Copps’ former club Newcastle United, while the front and back has the number 26 sublimated in to the shirt with a unique twist being that each of the numbers are the styles of font used by the EFL during his 17 years with the club.
The third kit is once again sponsored by mental health charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45, male suicide. CALM have been donated the sponsorship by LNER, the club’s current shirt sponsor.
Coppinger said: “I jumped at the opportunity to get involved, growing up I loved buying different shirts and looked out for them coming out.
“I’m really happy with the final design, I wanted it to have a retro feel after 17 years at the club, my kids had theirs delivered and they love it which is another big thing for me.
“I’ve never worn a gold shirt so I thought it was quite fitting to have that with it being my last season at the club.
“Having CALM as the shirt sponsor was massive for me, it adds to the whole experience with the job that they’re doing. I’ve had my own mental health issues in the past and it is pleasing to have them on there to promote all they are doing.”
Elite Pro Sports CEO Lee Jenkinson said: “When we came up with the concept of allowing James to design the third kit for the 2020/21 season, we didn’t know what direction the kit would take!
“James has shown that he isn’t just a legend on the field, he was equally professional off it and was a pleasure to work with throughout this process.
“His direction for the shirt was apparent from the first meeting and although a few tweaks were made along the way, we are delighted with the way the shirt has come out.”
Club Doncaster group head of marketing and communications Shaun Lockwood said: “With what James has done for the club over the years it felt like a fitting tribute to get him involved with this year’s third kit.
“We’re really pleased with the outcome, and I’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work over the past few months.”
The shirt is limited edition so supporters are urged to get yours early to avoid disappointment.
