One Direction heart-throb Louis Tomlinson made his professional football debut for Doncaster reserves last night, so what next? Will Wolverhampton's Liam Payne be making an appearance at Molineux?
Rovers fan Tomlinson, whose band have had three consecutive number one albums in the United States and won two Brit Awards earlier this month, came on as a second-half substitute in the Final Third Development League fixture against Rotherham.
The match was part of a joint partnership between the club and local charity Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Tomlinson’s 65th-minute arrival at right-back was greeted by a deafening ovation from the bumper 5,333 crowd – consisting mostly of die-hard ‘“Directioners” who had come to watch their hero strut his stuff.
The pop prince had limited chances to showcase his footballing X Factor and hit a bum note in the 89th minute of the 0-0 draw when he fell on his backside.
