Can Donny’s Louis Jones beat fellow EFL players in South Yorkshire in the NCS Yes/No Challenge?
This week Doncaster Rovers keeper Louis Jones met NCS graduate, Holly Dennis to take on the EFL Trust YES/NO Challenge.
Louis, who has also taken part in NCS back in 2016, was the second footballer in South Yorkshire to take on an NCS Graduate in the YES/NO challenge with the rule being, don’t say Yes or No. Louis and Holly went to-to-toe after finding out they shared a lot in common, not only had they both done NCS but they attended the same school.
NCS is a flagship government initiative that has provides 400,000 young people aged 16-17 the chance to take on new challenges, experience exciting activities, make long-lasting friendships and develop vital skills that will support them later in life.
“It was great to meet Holly and share our experiences about NCS. I know first-hand the quality of Doncaster’s NCS programme. It’s a great opportunity for young people and would urge more to get involved”.
Talking about the YES/NO game, Louis continued:
“I thought I did ok but it’s a lot harder than you think, it was great fun!”.
