Local charity Eve’s Trust have already secured some big names for this year’s legends game. Former premier league footballers John Beresford and Paul Merson join returning England stars Darren Anderton and Lee Hendrie. Whilst this is a strong start, Rovers fans have perhaps been waiting for someone closer to home before they begin to get excited.
With that in mind, the DRSG are pleased to announce that James Coppinger is confirmed to play this year. I played in the legends game last year and it was an incredible experience but the opportunity to play with bona fide Rovers legend James Coppinger ups the ante considerably.
Last year, I spent most of my 45 minutes on the pitch stealing admiring glances at Darren Anderton’s muscular thighs, I wouldn’t have been able to focus at all had Copps been on the pitch…
Copps wanted to play last year but unfortunately was unavailable, so when the opportunity arose this year he made sure that he was involved. Coppinger completes a midfield that also features the aforementioned Merson, Anderton and Hendrie. Wow.
This year’s legends event takes place on 18th June and everyone who buys a ticket will also receive a raffle ticket with the chance to win a signed Rovers shirt as well as the programme from James Coppinger’s record breaking game, signed by the man himself.
Tickets are priced at £5 for adults, £3 for children and £10 for a family ticket. Contact the Doncaster Rovers Ticket Office on 01302 762576 for more details.
