One Direction superstar Louis Tomlinson is set to make his debut for home town club Doncaster Rovers.

The 22-year-old signed for Rovers on a non-contract basis last summer, but is now set to play for the reserve team next month.

The singer has never played higher than Sunday league level and took part in a Glasgow charity match last year, having to be substituted when he began to feel ill. The Doncaster-born player also suffered a leg injury when he was tackled by Aston Villa's Gabriel Agbonlahor which made the striker the subject of twitter abuse.

Tomlinson subsequently pulled out of his debut game for the club back in September with the injury and has since been on tour with One Direction, but he has now finally set a date for his debut.

Rovers chief executive Gavin Baldwin told BBC Sport: "We are very much looking forward to Louis making his Rovers debut and I know that he can't wait either.

"Louis has an incredibly busy schedule and we have been working hard with him to ensure we can get a date in his diary for the game.

"He is lifelong Rovers supporter and he comes to watch the team whenever he can, so it will be great for him to put on his Rovers shirt and make his debut for us."
