Rovers captain Andy Butler awarded Fit Rovers 200 shirt

17 December 2018

Doncaster Rovers captain Andy Butler was presented with a commemorative Fit Rovers 200 shirt before Rovers’ league match against Scunthorpe United on Saturday December 15.

The central-defender, who made 140 appearances for the opposition, celebrated his 200th Rovers appearance in a comfortable 3-0 win over the Iron in what was the Fit Rovers-appointed Rovers match.

Butler has been an avid supporter of Fit Rovers since the programme began in 2017, having excelled in his role as the project's ambassador during the 2017/18 season.


Fit Rovers participant Wayne Tomlinson and course facilitator Lauren Cuttell handed Butler his framed shirt before kick off on Saturday, whilst the first team players wore special Fit Rovers shirts to warm up in.

Doncaster-born Butler has made more than 500 senior appearances during his time as a professional footballer, signing for the Rovers in January 2015 after making his loan move from Sheffield United permanent.


The part-time referee has played for Scunthorpe United Huddersfield Town, Walsall and the Blades before heading back to his place of birth. 

The Fit Rovers team also raised a total of £600 in November in aid of Movember 2018, which was donated by the members at the end of 2018.
