One Direction star joins Doncaster Rovers

Published Add your comment

One Direction are a popular boyband, and a talented bunch of musicians. But one of their stars have just revealed their talents are endless as he signed for Doncaster Rovers.

One of the pop sensation’s band members, Louis Tomlinson, has joined the Sky Bet Championship club where he used to work on matchdays before landing himself in fame and success by appearing on the X Factor.

Although the international pop star will be signed as a non-contract player, the club have issued him with a squad number and are keen to give Tomlinson a run out in Doncaster colours at some point in the upcoming season.

Tomlinson has been assigned the no.28 shirt by manager Paul Dickov in order to help raise money for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Chairman John Ryan told the club’s official website: "I am honoured to let Louis play in my number to help raise money for the charity. 

"I wore this in 2003 for my record-beating appearance at Hereford and this is the first time I have allowed it to be used since but I felt this was a good cause."

Tomlinson can't believe he has been given such an honourable opportunity to have signed for his hometown club and given the chance to play let alone walk on the pitch as he played for the newly-promoted side in a charity game at the Keepmoat Stadium last season.

The star said: "This has always been a childhood dream for me. 

"I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it’s all about."
