First team players out in force for Rovers Roadshow

11 December 2018

Doncaster Rovers first team players visited primary schools across the Doncaster region on Monday as part of the Rovers Roadshow.

John Marquis, Danny Amos, Will Longbottom, Alfie Beestin and Matty Blair called in at Waverley, Sandringham, Sunnyfields and Barnby Dunn Primary School respectively, as organised by the Foundation.

The players answered questions from pupils focusing on resilience, as well as explaining how hard they had to work to become professional footballers, how they had to overcome obstacles and challenges along the way.


Club Doncaster Foundation school sports development officer Kelly Jackson-Powell said: “It was great to have the Rovers players down at the schools to talk about their own experiences with resilience.

“The pupils asked really good questions and hopefully took on board the advice from the players. We hope to continue working with schools to deliver this sort of opportunity for everyone involved.”

Thank you to all the first team players and members of staff that came down from Doncaster Rovers.
