Fifty young fans sign for Rovers to help launch away kit

22 July 2022

Rovers have 50 new players contracted to the club - for a day at least.

To help launch the brand new 22/23 away kit, dozens of young supporters were invited to an exclusive afternoon behind-the-scenes at the Club Doncaster Elite Performance Centre at Cantley Park.

The youngsters came from partner schools of the Club Doncaster Foundation, as well as members of the new Young Reds scheme.

After receiving the new green and black OXEN away shirt from Rovers kit man Mat Hawkhead, the young fans joined first team manager Gary McSheffrey to sign their contracts.

They then took part in a new signing photoshoot and filmed a goal GIF, before joining first team players for a training session with club fitness staff.

The afternoon proved incredibly popular for the youngsters in attendance.

Young Reds member Charlie McClone said: “I had a great day at the kit launch.

“The kit looks brilliant and it was great to be one of the first people to see it, and play football with the Rovers players.”

Fellow member Grace Blair added: “I was really excited to sign for Rovers.

“I love the green in the away kit and I hope it is lucky for us this year.”

Marketing manager Mark Hughesman said: “We hope all those that took part had an enjoyable afternoon - our first team players certainly enjoyed themselves.

“These young fans are the future of the club. We were excited to get them involved in an important event, launching our new away kit.”
