Doncaster Fan Announces New Signing

Thu 11th Jun 2015 | Fan Engagement

Doncaster Rovers take Fan Engagement to a new level as supporter Lee Miller announces the club's new signing.

Rovers announced the first new signing of the summer, Thorsten Stuckmann, but with a departure from the usual way of doing so. 

Frustrated fan Lee Miller was invited to the Keepmoat Stadium not only to interview the new signing and manager Paul Dickov, but to also be the first ever fan in the Football League to officially announce a signing from their own Twitter account.

Marketing and Communications Manager Ryan Murrant said: “Lee has been Tweeting myself and the club every day about ‘Who are we signing’ and ‘When is Dickov getting the pen out?’

“Rather than just ignore him as many clubs would do, we decided to get Lee involved today and to let him control our media and to literally answer the questions he’s been asking us! 

“Doncaster is unique and we want to do things differently where and when we can and (today) shows that.

“It’s very easy to sign a player, hold a scarf up and get the text book ‘can’t wait to get going’ quotes but why not get fans involved? 

“Gavin Baldwin (CEO), the board and the manager understand what this club means to the fans and everyone at the club is encouraged to help create magic moments.

“The club is world class when it comes to fan engagement and there’s plenty more to come.

“To get Lee involved (today) was brilliant for him and the club.”
