One Direction star Louis Tomlinson to don number 28 shirt in Doncaster Rovers debut
Monday 09 September 2013
Pop star Louis Tomlinson is to fulfil a lifelong dream this month when he plays for Doncaster Rovers.
More used to stepping out onto the stage of the O2 Arena or Madison Square Gardens, Tomlinson will reportedly wear the number 28 shirt in a Central League game against Scunthorpe United at the Keepmoat Stadium. Proceeds from the September 18 game will go to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
He - and no doubt his management - will be hoping he fares better than during his last football game, a charity match, when he hobbled from the pitch to vomit on the sidelines after a robust tackle from Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor.
