An important life lesson for all of you on this wintry late-January Saturday; no Rovers does not mean no football. There’s goals in this here town, and big green rectangles with white lines on them too, not to mention a whole host of hardy volunteers keeping clubs plowing onwards, and giving the people of Doncaster an opportunity to pull on their own boost of a Saturday.
These people, and their clubs, need your support in order to keep going. We’ve already seen one long-serving club – Bentley Colliery – go to the wall this season and have their records expunged, as is the football vernacular. Don’t let another of our town’s great clubs go the same way as Bentley, as Mexborough, as Hatfield Main, as Denaby United all went before. Turn off the TV, stop watching opinionated idiots spout opinions about a game that stopped being relevant to any of their own experiences a decade ago, and get outside in the open and support football in our town. Football exists beyond sofas and jumbotrons, but it can only do so with your support.
So with that rallying cry in your ear, get yourself along to one of the following matches this afternoon.
