Louis Tomlinson - 1D's Louis Tomlinson Will Be Kicking It For The Doncaster Rovers This Year
Louis Tomlinson dives into football.
Louis Tomlinson’s career with One Direction has won him legions of adoring fans, but the singer might have it a bit tougher on the field. The teenage heartthrob is moving on to an entirely different demo, as he has recently signed with the Doncaster Rovers. Tomlinson is a Doncaster native, and while he has never played higher than Sunday League, apparently it was a childhood dream of his. Who could argue with that?
Turns out Louis is a double threat.
"I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood," the 21-year-old commented for the Rovers website. Tomlinson is referring to the fact that his appearances on the field (he has been signed as a non-contract player) will benefit the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which works with children with a shortened life expectancy. Louis is expected to don the Rovers colours at some point during the season and train with the team.
His turn as a baller will be in aid of the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
Doncaster chairman 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.”
For any concerned Directioners out there, however, fret not – the contract will not prevent Louis from touring with the band or releasing new music.
Louis himself is very excited to realise a childhood dream.
