Rovers to hold minute of applause for Laurie Sheffield

18 November 2021

Rovers will observe a minute of applause ahead of Saturday’s match against Lincoln City to celebrate the life of former player and club legend Laurie Sheffield who sadly passed away last week.

The Welshman is one of the most prolific goal scorers to ever play for the club – finding the back of the net 49 times in 85 appearances - and his devastating partnership with Alick Jeffrey in the late 1960s saw them wrack up a combined 50 goals as they secured the Division Four title. 

Saturday’s fixture is a fitting one to remember the great man as he made his Rovers debut at home to the Imps in 1965 – he scored twice. 

Sheffield settled in Doncaster and was a regular visitor to Belle Vue and the Keepmoat Stadium. He will be missed by everyone at the club. 

His family will be guests of honour at the match.
