Coppinger and Rovers to host tribute game once fans can return

8 May 2021

Rovers are working with James Coppinger to plan one final outing at the Keepmoat Stadium for the club’s No.26.

Once supporters are able to return to stadiums without social distancing, the club will work with Copps to put on a tribute match which will give Copps chance to say goodbye and thank you to the fans.

“The only disappointing part for me is that the fans can’t be in the stadium on Sunday,” he said.

“We’ve had discussions about some kind of final game for me to play in – a tribute game or something similar at the Keepmoat Stadium – but until fans can come back without social distancing, we don’t know how it will look

“When we get the all-clear for fans to return, that will give us a better idea of what that’s going to look like.

“If I can say goodbye and have one final farewell with the fans, that would be a dream come true.”
