DRFC Almost 6,000 miles on the road next season

Doncaster Rovers fans face almost 6000 miles on the road next season following the club in League One.

Fans will clock up 5833 miles travelling from the Keepmoat stadium and back watching Rovers at their 23 League One away games next season.

Rovers do not have many local games to look forward to next season with only Sheffield United, Scunthorpe United and Notts County within 50 miles of the Keepmoat Stadium.

There will only be three trips across the Pennines to face Oldham Athletic, Preston North End and Bury.

Rovers will make only four more trips in the North of England, to face Tranmere Rovers, Crewe Alexandra, Carlisle United and Hartlepool United.

The fans can look forward to visiting four new grounds with the side next season. It will be the first time they have visited Colchester United, MK Dons and Shrewsbury Town since they have moved to their new homes.

It will be the first time they have faced Crawley Town, who will be under their new manager and former Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll.

There are a number of long distance journeys with Brentford, Swindon Town, Colchester United, Leyton Orient, Crawley Town, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Yeovil Town all a minimum of 170 miles away from the Keepmoat Stadium.

Crawley, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Yeovil Town are all over 200-mile trips, with Yeovil being the longest trip of 243 miles one-way.

The fixtures for the 2012/13 season will be announced at 9am on Monday June 18th.

*The mileage has been taken from a well-known Automobile Association website with nothing to do with having a drink problem. It is worked out from ground to ground, including a round trip.

Not many local games. Unless Rovers are doing well there are going to be some small crowds at the Keepmoat next season.
