This season has seen success after success from the In Rovers We Trust project, and so the club have decided that this season's "End of season Dinner" will be affordable for all fans.

For just 25 per person (table of 10 250) Doncaster Rovers fans are invited to the end of season party at the Dome on the 28th April 2013, with food, live music and a live comedian (Jamie Sutherland).

Dress Code is smart/casual with Rovers shirts preferred!

The VSC has been speaking with the club for a number of weeks about having a Rob Jones Day as a special tribute from the fans to our Captain Fantastic.  His performances throughout these past weeks have inspired the team on to some excellent results, not to mention his personal contributions on the scoresheet, and he is fast cementing himself into Rovers cult hero status.

The club, through the In Rovers We Trust project, are delighted to support fan engagement activities and welcomed this idea with open arms.  Rob Jones himself was consulted, and gave his thumbs up too!

So, our next home match against Walsall (3pm Kick-off, Saturday 9th February 2013) has been deemed "Rob Jones Day", where we can show our appreciation of our inspirational leader on the pitch by wearing your FREE Rob Jones mask.  The club will also be springing a special Rob Jones-themed surprise for one lucky fan!

Download your printable Rob Jones mask by clicking the button below, and wear it to the match.  Tell your friends, post onto your social networks and lets fill the stadium with Rob Joneses!  After all, we're all Rob Jones, aren't we...?


 

The VSC has also designed some rather fetching #RobJonesFacts t-shirts, mugs and badges (many thanks to our regular graphic design supremo, SnodsShinpad, and the @RobJonesFacts twitter feed for their support), which can be purchased at http://townender.spreadshirt.se

Visit the site to see all of the designs and choose your favourite, but for now here is a sneaky peek at one....

 

We hope you like the designs and wear them with pride.  The funds the VSC receives from the sale of these t-shirts will go towards supporting our continuing work with the club on behalf of you, the supporters.

Have a great Rob Jones Day on the 9th of February, and let's cheer the team on to victory.

Back in November it was announced Doncaster Rovers were joining an ever-growing list which includes Aston Villa, Brentford, Bristol City, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Derby County, Hull City, Peterborough United, Watford, AFC Wimbledon and the Scottish Premier League by announcing it's support for the FSF's Safe Standing Campaign.

Gavin Baldwin, chief executive of Doncaster Rovers, said: "During the 2006/07 season Doncaster Rovers moved into an all-seater stadium and since that time the club have implemented a no standing policy at home games. After continued dialogue with supporters through our fan engagement programme, In Rovers We Trust, it has become clear that a selection of supporters do wish to stand at matches.

"The club believe that the creation of a safe standing area at the ground would allow these supporters to stand in a safe, controlled environment and allow them to have a match day experience that suits their needs. The club believe the creation of a safe standing area would also be of benefit to other fans at the ground who do not wish to stand, but sometimes are compelled at games due to having their view restricted due to people in front of them who attempt to.

"We lend our support to the Football Supporters' Federation in their request for trials for safe standing systems."

The Safe Standing Roadshow visited the recent Fans Forum at the Keepmoat, and owners John Ryan, Dick Watson and Terry Brammall, along with Chief Exec Gavin Baldwin, were impressed with the rail system on show. Both DRFC and the VSC can't wait for systems such as these to be put on trial in the UK, hopefully in the not too distant future.

09 Dec 2012 - VSC News: Ian Duerden

Some of you will be aware that one of the Rovers legends from the Conference years, Ian Duerden, is currently in the process of setting up a foundation for his son Oliver, who has an extremely rare genetic disorder. The VSC have invited Ian and his family to join us for a match in the future and they have accepted this offer, and we will release further details of this closer to the date. On the day we will be looking to increase awareness of Oliver's condition and raise some much needed funds for his foundation. I'm sure you will all agree this is an excellent cause and I know Ian will have your full support on the day.

We are also looking to set up a partnership with the Rovers official charity this season, Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, which should hopefully see some of the families there attend a Rovers match in the future.

That is just a brief outline of some of the things we are currently trying to do in increasing our work in the community, something we think the VSC may have slipped away from in recent years. We are essentially a Community Trust and it is important we are seen as this, rather than just as an extension of the Football Club. If you can think of anyone who might benefit from a great day out at the Rovers, or have any other ideas on how the VSC can increase our presence in the Community, then please feel free to email dave.burkitt@drfc-vsc.co.uk with your suggestions.

Finally, I'd just like to point out that we cannot do any of this without our members. If you have not already done so, please consider becoming a member of the VSC by clicking on the Join VSC link at the top. You will not only be becoming part of an organisation that is a significant shareholder in the club you support, you will also be helping us to serve the local community.
