THERE’S something fishy going on with Doncaster Rovers!

Two of the club’s stars allowed tiny fish to chew on their feet as part of their preparations for a major charity trek they will undertake in the summer.

The Garra Rufa fish are supposed to therapeutically nibble at the dead skin of the foot to leave feet feeling soft and smooth. The fish have no teeth, therefore suck away at dead skin leaving behind softer rejuvenated skin.

Players Mark Wilson and James O’Connor, as well as coach Liam Scully, dipped their feet in with the creatures during a visit to the fish spa at Vintage Beauty Salon, on Main Street, Sprotbrough.

The venue offered them the treatment as part of their build-up for the Inca Trek walk in which they are taking part next month, along with others, including midfielder James Coppinger.

Their walk will take them 62.5 miles across the Andes at high altitude. The players are hoping to raise £50,000 for the NSPCC through the trek.
