A Doncaster Rovers supporter since a very young age; first game a Third Division victory over Wigan in 1996, started watching regularly in the Conference circa 2001. Four promotions, two relegations, one League Cup quarter final, one JPT win at the Millenium Stadium, one Wembley victory. Never a dull moment. Interested in journalism for many years, I've occupied a number of positions on numerous forums, such as moderator, super-moderator and administrator. I began writing my own blog in 2008 on many football issues, though mainly Doncaster Rovers related. In December 2012, I took a step into match reporting, when appointed for the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior Football League (tier 10 in the English football pyramid). My reports have since appeared on a regular basis in the Sheffield Star, Rotherham Advertiser, Green 'Un, and the league's website: All my match reports are accessible in one place:
