Doncaster Rovers FC is an English football team founded in 1879.
The club has been able to establish itself as a solid contender for great things since its inception, and the club's proud history is worth taking a look at!
In 1879, a group of railway workers founded what would later become the Doncaster Rovers FC.
They were looking to provide an opportunity for their fellow railway mates to compete in sporting pursuits when they weren't working.
As time progressed and more teams began forming, it became apparent that there was a need for regulation among these clubs so that any disputes could be settled outside of court - thus setting up The Football Association in 1888!
The team's first ever game came on November 16th 1870 against Hallam Foe at Bullhouse Field where they lost by one goal.
However, this setback didn't stop them from going on to win two titles during the 1890s; the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Cup and the Yorkshire League title, both prestigious awards at the time.
The club even had a foray into international football for a period of five years in which they competed in friendlies against other teams - winning three out of four games that were played!
Doncaster Rovers' history is as rich as it is proud, with their connection to rail roots allowing local railway workers an opportunity for sporting pursuits when not working and setting up The Football Association.
