A Doncaster-born footballer was back on home soil when he was guest of honour for a summer fair at his old school.

Former Doncaster Rovers player James Baxendale, who now plays for League One side Walsall, joined in the fun and games at Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Stainforth. James, 21, who hails from Thorne, began his career at Leeds United and later joined his home town team, making two appearances for Rovers during the 2011-12 season, and has since made a name for himself in the Midlands.
