More than 4,000 fans will cheer on Doncaster pop sensation Louis Tomlinson when he makes his Doncaster Rovers debut next week.

Fans from across Britian and beyond are set to descend on the Keepmoat Stadium on Wednesday night to see the One Direction star pull on the red and white hoops for the very first time.

Tickets for the game between Doncaster Rovers reserves and Rotherham United reserves have been snapped up from as far afield as Italy, Sweden and France with scores of teenage fans from across the country set to watch the Bessacarr boy band star in action.

The star is thought to have already undertaken a series of training sessions with Rovers’ first team squad in preparation for the game which will help raise funds for Bluebell Wood Hospice of which the singer is patron.

The Rovers’ squad member - who was given the shirt number 28 - will play in the Final Third Development League fixture at the Keepmoat at 7pm.

He has been a regular at Rovers’ home and away fixtures in recent weeks.

Gavin Baldwin, Chief Executive of Doncaster Rovers, said: “We are looking forward to seeing him against our South Yorkshire neighbours.

“We are expecting huge interest in this game with fans from all over the world set to visit the Keepmoat Stadium for this unique occasion.

“I’m sure Louis will be delighted to step on to the hallowed turf and officially become a Doncaster Rovers player for the first time.”

Tickets for the match are still on sale.

The game is free to season ticket holders and Rovers Alliance members, with space allocated in the West Stand on a first-come-first served basis.

Anyone who bought a ticket for the original fixture last year can purchase a new ticket at a discounted rate of £3, while all other tickets are available at £7.
