Doncaster Rovers Legends Banner Vote Six: 2000 – Present Day

121 Years of Rovers history explored and here we are at the final 15 years and we are down to just 1 place left on our banner, with 16 players making the shortlist for the final vote. Who features? You decide!

This era represents arguably the most successful period in Doncaster Rovers’ history, the rise from the depths of the Conference back into the league, successfully winning Division Three at the first attempt, reaching the quarterfinals of the Carling Cup, winning the Johnstone Paint Trophy at Cardiff’s Millenium Stadium, promotion to the second tier for the first time in 50 years, a 4 year stay in Championship followed by winning the League One Title in 2013. With such an era, there will always be many, many players who have stood out in each of our memories. This shortlist, was by no means the hardest to compile and could have easily had over 25 candidates.

As the Black Bank Legends Banner is being provided by the club to represent our heritage and history, we have taken the decision to not include those players whose careers with DRFC are yet to come to an end. We know that for many the first legend on your lips would be James Coppinger, but we hope you find consolation in the fact that he already has his own giant flag, which is quite impressive and will be donning the walls of the Black Bank this coming season, this banner will hopefully complement it in adding more Rovers legends to our home.

This final vote will run until Tuesday 7th July at 8PM. This will then be followed by confirmation of the winner and a preview of all 6 Legends who have made the banner.

Doncaster Rovers Legends Vote Five 1990-2000

Legends Vote Five

We have broken the Rovers’s history down into 6 different eras and we’re asking you to vote for one legend from each. This is the Fifth poll with the dates ranging between 1990-2000.

This is an era many will remember but for the wrong reasons. This era saw the Rovers fall further than ever before in their history. These were the ‘dark days’, and it is in those dark times that certain players come to the fore to make it more bearable, to give us something to fight for. The question is, which Rovers Legend is the ‘beacon of hope’? Who is the warrior that kept on fighting? Who is the Legend that saw the Rovers out of the old millennia and into the new?

Voting will be available for just 4 days between now and Thursday before the poll closes. The last and final era of Rovers legends (2000-present day) will be available shortly after this.Legends Banner: Who features? You Decide
