Happy 90th birthday, Brian Makepeace

6 October 2021

Everyone at Doncaster Rovers would like to wish former captain Brian Makepeace a very happy 90th birthday.

Rossington-born Brian spent eleven seasons with Rovers, starting his first team career in 1950-51 with the club in Division Two.

Over the years he missed very few games, being an ever-present in the 1955-56 season and he remains Rovers fifth-highest appearance maker.

 He formed a very useful full-back partnership with Ulsterman Len Graham and along with Bill Paterson and then Charlie Williams formed the defensive backbone of Peter Doherty’s team.

In all he made 378 first team appearances before moving to Scarborough in 1961.

He never once though managed to score a goal for Rovers!

 Happy birthday, Brian!
