Two lucky Doncaster Rovers fans will be given the chance to play in the James Coppinger ‘Legends’ match, it has been announced.

Coppinger has revealed on twitter that two people will be picked at random to play in his testimonial game on Sunday, April 19.

Everyone who buys a ticket for the match before April 10 will be entered into the draw to decide who gets to play alongside a host of Rovers legends and One Direction Star Louis Tomlinson.

Billy Sharp, Paul Green, Leo Fortune-West and Greg Blundell will be among those returning to the Keepmoat Stadium in honour of Coppinger.

Sean O’Driscoll and Dave Penney will go head-to-head in the dugouts, while former chairman John Ryan will referee the game.
