Louis Tomlinson has vowed to help unlock Doncaster Rovers’ potential after becoming the club’s new co-chairman.
The One Direction star, raised in Bessacarr, has teamed up with John Ryan to set up the ‘Tomlinson Ryan Trust’, aimed at developing the club on and off the field.
And helping his hometown club make a footprint in the community - and beyond - is at the top of Tomlinson’s agenda.
Tomlinson said: “For me, this is all about the football, the community and restoring the excitement and desire to making Doncaster Rovers the most exciting club to play for in Yorkshire.
“I want to see the Doncaster Rovers supporters get the club the success it deserves.
“I grew up in Doncaster and have felt the love for football run through the town, it’s for that reason that I have a real personal passion to make Doncaster Rovers a success story.
“This is a big step which I believe will open up opportunities to provide a very, very exciting future for the club and its supporters.”
