Rovers XI to visit Club Thorne Colliery in pre-season

6 June 2024

A Rovers Select XI will visit Club Thorne Colliery on Wednesday, July 17 as part of the club’s pre-season preparations.

The game at the Chesterfield Poultry Stadium in Moorends will kick off at 7.45pm with Rovers first team players and staff present on the night.

Club Thorne were crowned Humber Premier Division champions last season and earned promotion to the Northern Counties East League Division One.

The club suffered a significant blow recently with a fire at their clubhouse on Moorends Welfare and it is hoped this friendly fixture will help aid their recovery.

Rovers manager Grant McCann said: “We hope this game can help raise vital funds for Club Thorne who have faced financial hardship recently.

“They have been fantastic supporters of Club Doncaster, most notably by being superb hosts for Belles matches for the last year.

“Hopefully plenty of Rovers supporters will make the trip down for what should be a great evening.”

Club Thorne head of operations Sam Parkin said: "Everyone at Club Thorne is excited to welcome Doncaster Rovers to the Chesterfield Poultry Stadium. It’s been a brilliant season for us, gaining promotion back to the NCEL for the first time in 38 years. We’ve got a fantastic relationship with the Belles and we’ve loved hosting their games this season.

“The recent fire to the community pavilion has been a massive setback to the whole community and we need all the support we can get. The backing we’ve received from Grant, Adam and the whole of Club Doncaster in making this game happen has been amazing.

“We look forward to seeing a big crowd getting behind us and our guests.”

Tickets for the game will go on sale from 9am on Monday, June 10 from the Club Doncaster Box Office and Club Thorne.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Adult £8
Seniors (65+) £5
Under 16s £5

Full ticket details will be provided in due course.
