One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson has given the jersey he wore while playing for the Doncaster Rovers reserves recently to a charity auction set to take place later this year. Louis played in the game back in February as a charity match to raise money for children’s hospice Bluebell Wood.

Event organizer Janice McKellar said: “I’m sure this signed shirt will be perfect for any one of the 4,000 young ladies who turned out to watch Louis’ debut in the Doncaster v Rotherham match on Wednesday February 27. Or indeed, any one of his hundreds of thousands of Scottish fans!”

“It’s a fantastic addition to our auction catalog and we are very hopeful it will attract a huge amount of interest when the auction goes live on Thursday, May 22.”

Thousands of fans showed up to watch Louis play as he achieved his “boyhood dream” last month. Following the match, on the Doncaster Rovers website, Louis said: ”It’s absolutely amazing, those boys get to do that every week and it really is such an honor to be involved in a club, where I spent most of my child hood going down to the games. Just pulling on the shirt is just a boyhood dream.”

“I think its really important that when we are lucky enough to be in the position that we are in, to use that for the greater good. It is really important to spread the word about Bluebell Wood because they are such a great great charity. To get an insight into the football world has been fascinating and to be invited into that is such an honor. I have really enjoyed it and I can’t thank the people enough at Doncaster Rovers for having me.”

The autographed jersey to benefit the Ayrshire Hospice will open up for bidding on eBay on May 22. Check out video of Louis playing in the attached video.
