About the Doncaster Rovers Supporters Group
Doncaster Rovers Supporters Group (DRSG) is a democratic organisation setup to represent the wishes and concerns of Doncaster Rovers Supporters to the club. We are, and always will be, free to join and we welcome input from all DRFC fans, regardless of their views. We have no affiliation with Doncaster Rovers (Patienceform Limited), the Doncaster Rovers Supporters Club or the Viking Supporters Co-Operative and are wholly independent.
Anyone with even a passing interest in Doncaster Rovers will be aware that there are several disparate groups and bodies in existence as well as many outspoken individuals, all with their own unique opinions about what would be best for the club. However, one thing that they all have in common is their love of Doncaster Rovers Football Club.
The principle behind the DRSG is to give as many Doncaster Rovers supporters as possible the chance to state their concerns about Doncaster Rovers Football Club, as well as putting forward their ideas and thoughts to the club’s Board in a rational and reasoned manner.
The DRSG is currently ran by an interim committee but intend to hold elections before the start of the 2014/2015 season, thereby avoiding the possibility of any one individual taking or claiming an autonomous decision making role. Once elections have taken place those on the committee will have been elected by DRSG members as their representatives and, should the membership wish to, they can be voted out at the Annual General Meeting. By the same token, any member can stand for election to the committee.
The DRSG is here to serve as an umbrella organisation to which every group, body or individual can turn to in order that their voice can be heard. Those groups or individuals who want their views represented will, by joining the DRSG, be assured that their concerns will presented to the club in a professional manner.
Whilst it is clear that acting upon each and every viewpoint would be an impossible task, we believe that by hearing as many views as possible we can reach a consensus on major issues, for example the club’s ticket pricing policy and any prospective ownership changes, the DRSG will hopefully be able to influence the club to act positively on such matters.
Those on the committee of the DRSG are confident that they will be able to argue their case on the members’ behalf with strength in numbers meaning that the greater the membership in terms of numbers, there is less of a likelihood that the club will be able to ignore the views that the DRSG present to them.
If you are an existing member, your continuing support is appreciated and we’d ask you to spread the word. If you haven’t yet signed-up, please join, it’s free and the the greater our membership the louder our voice. Remember, Doncaster Rovers Football Club is YOUR club. Join the DRSG and help ensure that it stays that way!
