Rovers fans fear club could be ‘destroyed’

Have your say

The future of Doncaster Rovers football club still remains unclear after bosses last night declined to give a categorical denial that it might go into administration.

Fans fear a 10-point reduction, if that were to happen, would almost certainly lead to relegation.

On Wednesday Rovers issued a statement about the signing of more players in the January transfer window which they said ‘were not the actions of a club who are considering administration’.

The Star asked chief executive Gavin Baldwin to elaborate on that yesterday but a response was not forthcoming.

Our front page report caused concern among fans, one of whom posted a comment on our website describing the situation as ‘a game of egos that will destroy the club, playing with supporters who are apparently irrelevant people in rich men’s games’.

“They are just as important as the directors, having invested a great deal of their money in support of Doncaster Rovers,” the fan said. “Please sell your shares to Sequentia!”

The Football League also declined to comment and said the presence of chief executive Shaun Harvey at last week’s home match was ‘not out of the ordinary’.
