Squad drops in on city primary schools for Rovers Rewards

19 October 2023

The Rovers squad went back to the classroom this week to help reward pupils across Doncaster that have impressed their teachers this half term.

As part of the newly-launched Rovers Rewards scheme, primary schools in the city will receive ten VIP experiences for an upcoming matchday to be handed to youngsters that have impressed in recent weeks.

And Rovers players dropped in on eight schools in the final week of the half term to help hand out the prizes.

Teachers picked out pupils for a wide variety of reasons, including producing excellent work, showing outstanding attitude or being a brilliant friend to their fellow classmates.

They will each receive a free ticket for the clash with Walsall in Sky Bet League Two, along with a matchday tour of the Eco-Power Stadium and a gift.

Club Doncaster marketing manager Mark Hughesman said: “We’re really proud of the Rovers Rewards scheme and it was great to hand out the first set of prizes in schools this week.

“It’s always brilliant to see the smiles on kids’ faces when the players walk into classrooms and assemblies and there were certainly plenty of excitement when prizes were given out.

“We’re really pleased to be able to help schools recognise their pupils’ achievements, whether it’s for academic or social reasons and we hope the youngsters have a great day with us when we play Walsall.

“The squad will be carrying out another round of visits before the Christmas break so watch out for the players.”

Players visited Carr Lodge Academy, Thorne King Edward Primary, Spa Academy Askern, Dunsville Primary, Grange Lane Infants, Holy Family School, Tickhill Estfeld and Morley Place Academy this week.

Also, every primary school pupil in Doncaster will be sent a ticket offer for the Walsall game via their school. Ask at your school’s reception for more details.
