Doncaster Rovers have announced their first pre-season friendly ahead of the new season.

Rovers will travel to Bradford City on Saturday 27th July (3pm) for what will be their last weekend friendly before the new season starts.

Bradford enjoyed a phenomenal season last season under Phil Parkinson, enjoying two trips to Wembley.

They became the first fourth tier side to reach the League Cup final in the competitions history, where they eventually lost to Swansea City. On the way to the final they beat both Arsenal (quarter-final) and Aston Villa (semi-final).

The Bantams put the disappointment of the final defeat behind them over the final few months of the season as they put a winning run together to clinch a place in the play-offs.

Having dispatched of Burton Albion in the semi-final, they steamrolled Northampton Town in the final at Wembley and they were 3-0 ahead inside thirty minutes.

The game could see former Bradford player David Syers in the Rovers squad whilst Ricky Ravenhill could line-up against Rovers, having helped the side win promotion from both the conference and Fourth Division in successive seasons during his four years with the club, making just over 150 appearances.

Ticket Prices:
Adults – £10
Concession – £5
