This new and unique event sponsored by The Crown Hotel Bawtry, will involve two squads of 18 players who will contest the Cup over 90 minutes with penalties being the decider should scores be level at full time and will provide each player with a truly professional footballer experience from training, under the guidance of coaches from Doncaster Rovers FC, which starts at the end of February to a pre-match training game to be held at Doncaster Rovers Cantley Training Ground.

This is a truly groundbreaking event and a great partnership with Doncaster Rovers FC and Club Doncaster Foundation. Those who sign up will have the opportunity of playing in a competitive match at the stadium whilst doing their bit for charity in the local community.
