The 2017-18 football season in photographs, from Doncaster Rovers to Dulwich Hamlet, Oldham Athletic to Olomouc
The sixth and last fanzine of 2017-18 will be on sale before Rovers’ final match of the season.
The final whistle brought relief both to the 482 travelling Wimbledon fans, who knew they were safe, and everyone else, simply glad this was over.
Lee Warren’s words encapsulate the futility of it all. We were never quite dead – somehow never quite done for – but at the same time we always were.
There were brief flashes of promise and quality, but this match was plucked straight from the file marked ‘end of season, nowt to play for’.
Despite a gallant effort Doncaster weren’t able to ruin Blackburn’s party in the battle of the Rovers.
It was clear to see that Rovers were missing the flair and vision of James Coppinger, Tommy Rowe and Alfie Beestin
I hadn’t even taken my seat when Rovers went in front. Andy Butler staying forward to meet a pinpoint James Coppinger cross with his massive Doncastrian head.
We’ve had little to shout about this season, but taking six points off this soulless empty shell of a football venture warms the heart.

At times both teams were trying to slow down a game that was already barely moving; it was like taking a break from pushing a milk-float uphill.
Doncaster Rovers were backed by an increasingly optimistic away following as they earned a deserved victory over Blackpool.
