PRE-SEASON: Cleethorpes Town (A)

With the 2012/13 season fast approaching, Rovers begin their pre-season with a trip to Cleethorpes Town FC.

The first friendly is anticipated by fans every season, giving them the chance to see the new signings, trialists at the club and also their ‘football fix’.

Doncaster Rovers usually play a local side in their first game, against the likes of Armthorpe Welfare or Askern Villa. This year the team will be heading a little further afield.
