I know what you’re thinking and yes, I have been waiting to use that headline for some time. But it is at least justified as Richie Wellens has two reasons to celebrate. The Doncaster Rovers Supporters Club (Main Branch) have rewarded the Rovers’ midfielder’s fine first season with the club by naming him as their Player of the Year. Supporters’ Club President and everyone’s favourite GP, Dr Erskine was on hand at Tuesday’s Sponsors Lunch to present the award to Wellens.
And if that big shiny trophy wasn’t enough Wellens has also been named in the PFA League One Team of the Season. The team is picked by the rest of the division’s players so is great recognition for the efforts of Richie Wellens in his first season at Doncaster. It is also the second successive season in which Wellens has made this team, having been selected whilst at Oldham last campaign.
