Have your say

DONCASTER Rovers are urging their fans to get behind Doncaster Rugby League Club in their efforts to win the Championship One title, writes Steve Hossack.

The third-placed Dons entertain leaders Barrow and second-placed Workington Town at the Keepmoat Stadium this Sunday and Thursday July 26 respectively, in games which will go a long way towards deciding who will be crowned league champions.

“We are proud to be working with the Dons to bring some fantastic offers to Rovers fans and to get people to come along and support the rugby team,” said Rovers chief executive Gavin Baldwin.

“Our season ticket holders are being offered tickets for the games at half price and Alliance members can also benefit from their continued support of Rovers youth team by also being eligible for this deal.

“Any Rovers fan purchasing tickets for all three of our home friendly fixtures will also receive a £5 discount off the price of a (Dons) ticket.

“We will continue to work with the other clubs who use the Keepmoat Stadium to provide more for all of our fans and we look forward to bright sporting year ahead.”

Dons chief executive Carl Hall said: “We offer a very warm welcome to all Rovers; fans and thank the club for their support in what will be very exciting games.

“We are vying for the league title and as such these are crucial games with the Dons looking to avenge their defeat at Workington earlier in the season and get the better of top-of-the-league Barrow.”
