13 Dec 2013 - Tomorrow's Rovers

Following our sponsorship last year of 2 of the academy squads we have pursued this opportunity once again and have sponsored 4 of the academy squads which is the Under 16s, Under 11s, Under 10s and Under 9s.

 
Pictured supporting our Tomorrow's Rovers fund is James Husband - who came up from the Doncaster Rovers Youth Team and was given his opportunity in the first team towards the end of the 2011/12 season. He has since been an ever present in the Doncaster Rovers squad and has turned in some impressive performances, not looking out of place on a field of players with combined career transfer fees well into the tens of millions of pounds and he has continued his impressive display into this season. 
 
This development of local young players is, in the view of the VSC Board, vital to the future of the club - a steady stream of players developed in the Doncaster Rovers way, who understand the way we play because that is the way they have been taught, and are able to come into the first team and be comfortable, prepared and excel.
 
We hope that we can continue to make donations throughout the season from our Tomorrow's Rovers fund, and as such we hope that you keep supporting our cause by donating to the fund. We know times are hard, but see this as a very worthy cause with a tangible payback.  Many supporters tell us that seeing local lads come through and pull on the iconic red and white hoops gives them an enormous sense of pride.
Tomorrow's Rovers aims to help the club fund youth development with the aim of giving the local young players coming through more opportunities, and has been well supported by the fans.  
 
With the club successfully bouncing back to the SkyBet Championship, the vast majority of available funding this year has been directed towards the first team squad, meaning Tomorrows Rovers takes on a new importance for our next generation of home-grown Rovers players.  
 
Please support the project if you can by making a donation, and help our local youngsters realise their potential and become Tomorrow's Rovers.

The VSC were disappointed to hear that John Ryan had resigned as Chairman of Doncaster Rovers Football Club and from the board of directors.


All VSC Directors, on behalf of our membership, would like to thank John for the great work he has done as club Chairman over the past 15 years, taking the reigns of the club at an incredibly difficult time and steering the club to successes beyond most supporter's wildest dreams . We hope he will continue to show his great support for Doncaster Rovers.

The VSC will continue to work with the Doncaster Rovers FC Board to strengthen the bond between the supporters and the club , continue with campaigns such as In Rovers We Trust and, most of all, make sure the voice of Doncaster Rovers supporters is represented within the club.

15 Oct 2013 - Donate to Chordoma UK

Following the sad news that VSC Member and Forum User Hoolahoop is currently undergoing treatment for Chordoma, the VSC is accepting donations from our members and forum users in aid of Chordoma UK, a charity chosen by Hoola himself.

What is Chordoma?

Chordoma is a rare primary bone cancer, meaning that it arises in bone (rather than spreads to bone).
The bones involved are those at the base of the skull, the vertebral bodies (back bones), and the bone of the sacrum and coccyx at the base of the spine. Chordoma is thought to arise from a persistent embryonic tissue (notochordal cells), which normally disappears before birth, but can persist in some people. However, the majority of individuals with notochordal remnants do not develop chordoma. Chordoma is part of a family of cancers called sarcoma, which include cancers of the bones, cartilage, muscles and other connective tissue. Chordomas are generally slow growing, and tend to recur after treatment. 

Why are Chordoma UK raising money for Research?

Treatment options for chordoma are limited. The average survival of patients diagnosed with chordoma is less than 10 years from first diagnosis although for some the course of the disease is longer. Initial diagnosis of chordoma is often difficult as its presenting symptoms can mimic more common musculoskeletal pain or other more common diseases. Research has led to a definitive marker for chordoma, but now further research is needed to use these findings to discover how best to treat patients. There is little funding available for research into this relentless bone cancer mainly because it is relatively rare, occurring in only 1 in 800,000 of the population. Without a focused approach to raising money for research into chordoma, little will change quickly. To find out more about what Chordoma UK please visit: http://chordoma-uk.org/

The VSC Board are confident they can speak for all VSC members and forum users in wishing Hoola a speedy recovery and our thoughts are with him, his family and his friends at this difficult time.

Ahead of the Blackburn Rovers match, Doncaster Rovers' captain and fan favourite Rob Jones was presented on the pitch with the VSC's Player of the Year trophy for 2012/13. As we all know, Rob led the team to the League One title and turned in a series of commanding performances throughout the season, and this was reflected in his scores in the Man of the Match voting for each game.  At the end of the season the votes were all tallied up and Rob had won with a couple of matches to spare!

Rob was presented the trophy by VSC members Dave Wright (left) and Matthew Lamb (right), who were randomly selected from those present at the recent AGM. The VSC would like to thank everyone who voted in the 2012/13 Man of the Match polls. 

Please remember to vote for your Man of the Match after every match in the Man of The Match section and help decide who should win the Player of the Year 2013/14
