DONCASTER Rugby League Club are to revive their popular road show.

“The club needs to attract more supporters and you can’t just sit back and hope that they will turn up at games, especially in what are tough economic times,” said honorary president Stewart Piper.

“You have to get out there and attract them and that is what we’ll be hoping to do with the Road Show.”

Added Piper, who played more than 300 games for the club in the 1970s and early 1980s: “We plan to visit as many pubs and clubs in the traditional rugby league areas of the town as we can promoting the club and hoping to reconnect with people who no longer come to games.

“We think we’ve put together an entertaining show and both Ray Green and myself will be reflecting on our long association with the Dons.

“I played at the time of the award-winning documentary on the club, Another Bloody Sunday, and I’ll be talking about those times and other periods of my career.

“Ray has held numerous posts at the club over the years and he’s got lots of stories to tell.

“Chief executive Carl Hall will also be dropping in to answer questions and talk about the club’s future.

“We’ll also be having a raffle.”

The Road Show kicks-off tomorrow at the Queen Victoria Inn, Southend, Thorne at 7.30pm. Everyone welcome.
