Donny R’sonists Launch New Website

The long-running Doncaster Rovers’ internet supporters’ team the Donny R’sonists have launched a new club website, finally satisfying the ‘internet’ part of their name. The R’sonists were formed in 1998 by supporters to play at the WorldNET competition as a last hurrah when it looked like Rovers were set to cease to be. The club’s name was taken as a nod to the antics of former Rovers club ‘benefactor’ Ken Richardson. As Rovers have continued, so have the R’sonists and they continue to represent the club in the world of Internet Supporters’ football. indeed the side will compete in their 14th WorldNET tournament at the end of this month. The new R’sonists website can be found here.

Donny R’sonists 4-3 Grimsby Old Skool

Though Saturday ended triumphantly enough for Rovers supporters, one group of Doncaster fans didn’t enjoy the best of starts to the weekend’s football.

Unfortunately no-one from Doncaster Council turned up to open the changing rooms, leaving the two teams changing in and outside cars in the open field, well, I say changing. Owing to an oversight by the R’sonists, their kit was en route to Whitby. Continue reading

Donny R’sonists 2-4 Barnsley SFC

The R'sonists in action

Disappointment for the Donny R’sonists as their recent run of form came to an abrupt hand at the hands of the contemporaries from Barnsley. The R’sonists have been putting in some great performances of late, but began with a distinctly lacklustre first half display on this, their return to Cantley Park. Indeed the R’sonists were two goals down inside the opening ten minutes and it failed to get much better for the Rovers’ supporters team. Continue reading
