Retro Rovers Video – Sutton Coldfield v Doncaster Rovers 1980

Doncaster Rovers videoThis is a great Doncaster Rovers video all the way from Nov 1980 featuring Billy Bremner, immacualte tracksuits, a terrific green away kit (I miss a green away shirt) and a terrible pitch.  It is a proper FA Cup 1st round affair from the 80’s.

Rovers beat the non league side to go through to the second round and a 2-1 win at home to Blackpool before the run was ended in the 3rd round at Hull.  We got promotion from Division Four that year though, thanks to a very talented and youthful side.  Here is a glimpse of them from that year, Rovers goals coming from Dowd and Lally.

Line up:  1. Boyd, 2. Russell, 3. Lally, 4. Lister, 5. Harle, 6.Dowd, 7. Pugh, 8. Flanaghan, 9. Warboys, 10. I Snodin, 11.Little
