Match Of The Past: Doncaster Rovers

0 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   January 11, 2013  |     6

We continue our series of archived matches of the clubs of Football League One today with Doncaster Rovers, and six matches from the two decades between 1985 and 2005, kicking off with their trip to Goodison Park to play Everton in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in January 1985. Next up is a match from two years later, and Belle Vue is packed to see them play a Middlesbrough team at the cusp of promotion. Our third match sees Doncaster travel to Edgeley Park to play Stockport County, a match which ended in defeat but features them taking the lead thanks to a quite brilliant solo goal. The club’s near-complete financial collapse after this has been well-documented, and it led to the club tumbling out of the Football league. Our next match is a home match against Farnborough Town, and this is followed by a match away to Mansfield Town from 2004. Finally, we have a match from after their return to the Football League, a home match from the League Cup against Aston Villa from 2005.
