Rovers have produced a unique version of their badge to show support for key workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rovers will use the new badge - which is a silhouette of the usual badge, but entirely in NHS blue - across all social media channels. Doncaster Rovers Belles and Doncaster RLFC, also part of the Club Doncaster group, have adopted similar badges.

Chief executive Gavin Baldwin said: “This is a simple gesture that our communications team implemented on Thursday night as they joined in the nationwide applause for NHS workers.

“That was a special moment that brought the country together, and we’re going to leave the badge as it is until we are able to return to some kind of normality. Although we’ve used the colours of the NHS, we want to be clear that we’re right behind all key workers - these are the people keeping the country running so everyone else can stay safe.”

Gavin said the club will look to thank key workers at a home game once football can safely resume.

He added: “We can’t say exactly what we will do because we’ve so many questions about how and when football will come back, but I think I speak for everyone at Club Doncaster when I say we are so grateful for their efforts and want to do what we can to thank them.

“Right now we will help where we can in supporting their public health messages, and our local authorities all know we’re ready to help where asked. Once we know when football will resume we will look at what we can do to celebrate the efforts of our local key workers.”
