Yorkshire roadshow double-header
The visit to Doncaster Rovers was as part of a Fans Forum attended by the chairman, chief executive, shareholders and supporters of the club. Rovers had already previously given their support to the safe standing campaign back in December, when CEO Gavin Baldwin (left in picture on left) said: "The club believe that the creation of a safe standing area at the ground would allow these supporters to stand in a safe, controlled environment and allow them to have a match day experience that suits their needs."
The next day it was over to Barnsley to give club executives the chance to to take a quiet look at the roadshow unit, which we set up below the East Stand at Oakwell.
Organised by Alan Bloore (on the left in the picture to the right), chairman of Barnsley Supporters' Trust, the visit subsequently led to Barnsley too giving their formal backing to the call for standing at all levels of football to be allowed by the authorities.
