Doncaster Rovers 18-19 Third Jersey

This is the Doncaster Rovers 18-19 Third Kit.

Designed by the 11-year-old fan Nate, the new Doncaster Rovers 18-19 third jersey features a classic white / colorful triangle design.

Nate said: I went with the triangles because I wanted to choose a retro design, with the colours representing emotions. People with mental health issues can be feeling lots of different emotions, represented by the variety of different colours."

Rovers players Andy Butler, James Coppinger, John Marquis, Matty Blair and Tommy Rowe picked the final design.

Club captain Andy said: "It is great that the club have done a kit to raise awareness of a good cause for the third year in a row. We had a few options put in front of us, and this one stood out. It is colourful, bright and something that has never been done before - we went round the team and they all thought this stood out and it'll be an honour to wear it."

The third kit will be sponsored by mental health charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide which is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. CALM have been given the shirt sponsorship by LNER, the club's current shirt sponsor.

The Doncaster Rovers 18-19 third kit will be available to pre-order from December 17.
