On the 26th of December, Doncaster Rovers play Scunthorpe United in what is always a great local derby.
The club will be expecting a bumper crowd and Scunny always do a decent job of filling the away end.
After the success of our last Crowd Funder campaign which has seen us buy the numerous flags that adorn the Keepmoat on Matchday now, we decided that we wanted to reward everyone who has helped to make Black Bank what it is so far just in time for Christmas.
Therefore we are offering numerous packages which will see you have the opportunity to lay your hands on the first pieces of Black Bank merchandise.
If our target is met we will be providing everyone who has pledged with a Knitted Black Bank Scarf and Stickers, just in time for Christmas and for the Boxing Day Derby where you’ll have the perfect opportunity to use them. Depending on the amount you pledge we’ll also be providing you with streamers and a one off, small Black Bank Flag. All packages must be collected from the Club on Match Day or a Doncaster Address. Postage can be arranged for the required fee (inc Abroad) but cannot guarantee Christmas Delivery.
Finally, as if this wasn’t enough, one package will win a half season ticket, for the South Stand meaning you could watch every home League game in the second half of the season for as little as £8. One other package will win a pair of Scunthorpe Tickets for Boxing Day (also South Stand).

Legends Vote Two
We have broken the club’s history down into 6 different eras and ask for you to vote for 1 legend from each. This is the second poll with the dates ranging between 1948 and 1960, some big, big names from our history in this group.
Voting will be available for just 4 days between now and Tuesday before the poll closes. The next four eras will be available shortly after this.
This era certainly contains some huge characters from the Rovers colourful past, including Charlie Williams, Peter Doherty, Harry Gregg and Alick Jeffrey so we’re sure the vote will be hard fought!
Lee Croft, Committee member of the DRSG, who have played a vital role in the Black Bank movement, has written an article taking a closer look at the 10 legends below. You can read that over on the DRSG website.
But the question is, who ultimately defines this period and takes the title of our second ‘Legend’? You decide!
After yesterday’s collection at the game, and our Crowdfunder already hitting its target, we’ve spent the day counting pennies and totalling up. We’ve been double checking and writing bits and bobs on paper, finally we have a figure…
Remember, we still have 6 days before our Crowdfund Flag Fund comes to an end, we’ve raised so much so far, and with your help we can raise even more!
Donate now via Crowdfunder
Only 6 days to go to our Crowdfunder project comes to an end. Having already hit our initial £500 target means that we will definitely be funded.
But that hasn’t stopped us going a step further. Yesterday at the game vs Fleetwood we were around the ground prior to the game handing out leaflets promoting our cause with buckets on hand to collect any loose change. As of yet we haven’t counted up the final sum but things look very promising and we were overwhelmed with the generosity and support given. A special thanks to all those that volunteered to help.
If you haven’t seen already we have launched our first Flag Vote and we’ve seen over 350 votes cast so far for the first Black Bank flag to be created for next season. Voting is still ongoing so if you have seen a design you would like to see please vote HERE.
A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the cause so far, and if you haven’t donated yet you still have six days before our Crowdfunder project ends and the more money we raise, the more we can do and get done so that when you come and stand with us on the Black Bank next season, it will be awash with colour and noise so vibrant you’ll have to double check you came to the correct football ground!

Incredibly our Flag Fund has hit the initial £500 in just 5 days! A huge thank you to everyone how has donated so far, your contributions have been overwhelming.
The great news is that we will continue to accept donations on our Crowdfunder Flag Fund page until April so lets see if we can double, or maybe triple the amount already in the pot. You can donate HERE
Tomorrow will see us launch the design competition for our first flag to be donned in the Black Bank next season.
Welcome all, to the Black Bank!
Help us raise funds so we can raise the roof.
We’re now raising funds for the Black Bank section of the Polypipe South Stand next season. We want the place to be awash with colour, creating a spectacular visual that will only further enhance the atmosphere and spur us on to be louder and prouder for the boys on the pitch.
We launched our ‘crowdfunder’ Flag Fund via our Social Media channels at the weekend and the response so far has been overwhelming…
Not even 4 days in and we’re nearly 75% of the way there. A huge thank you to everyone who has pledged so far and hopefully this is only the beginning of something special next season.
It doesn’t matter what area of the stadium you currently sit in, it doesn’t matter if you don’t plan to join us next season. But it does matter if you want to see and hear a fantastic atmosphere at the Keepmoat next season, an atmosphere for the players to thrive in and give 110% whilst wearing our hoops.
Every penny counts and you can donate HERE
Thanks again, and welcome to the Black Bank!
