Description

Doncaster Rovers Football Club is an English football club based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. They play in League One, the third tier of the English football league system after relegation from The Championship in 2013–14.

The club was founded in 1879 and turned professional in 1885. Doncaster have spent the majority of their playing history between the third and fourth tiers of the English football league system and are one of four clubs to win the Division 3/League Two title three times.

The club's colours have traditionally been red and white. Their home strip is red and white hoops, which has been the main design of the club's home shirt since 2001.

The associated Doncaster Rovers Belles L.F.C. are one of the most successful women's clubs in English football.

Following promotion in 2012–13, manager Brian Flynn moved to become director of football at the club, with Paul Dickov becoming manager a few weeks later.
