The news was broken on Sky Sports News' 92 Live special today where they're visiting all the football league clubs. This seems to be the publicity stunt of the century by Doncaster. Just imagine how many teenage girls will start supporting them. The only drawback is that the players will now probably receive death threats over Twitter when they're picked ahead of them.

Apparently he has signed for charity, with the club saying 'As part of the signing it is hoped that Louis will be able to appear in Rovers colours at some point this season in aid of Bluebell Wood and train with the lads.'
The chairman John Ryan said 'I am honoured to let Louis play in my number to help raise money for the charity. I wore this in 2003 for my record beating appearance at Hereford and this is the first time I have allowed it to be used since but I felt this was a good cause.'
Blackburn Rovers meanwhile are denying rumours that they've signed all the former members of Blazin' Squad.
