It’s not unknown that One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is a bit of a football fan. Earlier in the year the 20-year Doncaster born lad organised a charity match at the Doncaster Rovers pitch. The match was in aid of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice which Louis has shown a strong support for in the last couple of years.
Louis is being signed for the 2013/2014 season. As part of the signing Louis will be able to appear in several matches in the season along with training with the lads. As part of his contract Louis will also be doing more fundraising for Bluebell Wood.
Media Manager Steve Uttley “Louis and I organised last season’s charity game, in aid Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which was a big success with over 9000 fans attending. What started out as light hearted banter on text has moved on to reality, which is a great coup for the club. Our next step is to get Louis on the pitch again in a Rovers kit”
Claire Rintoul, Chief Executive at Bluebell Wood has opened up about the work Louis has done for the charity, “We’re absolutely thrilled and delighted that Louis has decided to continue his support for Bluebell Wood and promote what we do here. He’s visited us now on more than one occasion and met some of our children and their families who are all so excited that he is championing our cause. ”
Finally Louis Tomlinson revealed “This has always been a childhood dream for me. I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it’s all about.”
