Earlier this morning the takeover consortium of John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson were informed they had failed the Football League’s fit and proper persons test for club ownership.
Tomlinson expressed his disappointment in a number of online posts saying “I’m absolutely gutted the Doncaster Rovers deal is not going ahead. I am desperate for the club to be given the recognition it deserves.
“I was explicitly told that the deal to buy the club was not dependent on the money raised by Crowdfunding. Unfortunately I was misled.
“My passion for Doncaster Rovers remains as strong as ever, and I hope that I can still be involved with the club moving forward.
“And to all the Doncaster Rovers fans , I will do all in my power to help the club succeed. I really do love the club.”
“For the record, I insisted contractually I would never earn a penny from DRFC. I simply wanted to help club and community. Still hoping I can.”
