Rovers' award-winning ground staff were presented with the Sky Bet League One Grounds Team of the Season trophy on Friday.
The award is given to the grounds team who maintain the best pitch over the course of a full season. Visiting managers and referees award marks to the pitch with an independent judge from Sports Turf Research Institute making visits to the top ranking pitches to determine a winner.
The pitch at the Keepmoat Stadium has stood out throughout the 2020/21 campaign – a feat which is made even more impressive when it’s taken in to account that Harrogate Town and Sheffield Eagles have both called the Keepmoat Stadium home at various stages of the campaign.
Head grounds man Andy Thompson said: “The team have gone beyond what is expected of them, so they could produce a playing surface and training ground to benefit the club.
