Pupils at Hatfield’s Ash Hill Academy were up for the cup when Doncaster Rovers’ League One trophy came to class for the day.

Brian Flynn, who guided the club to the championship title last season, visited the school to help students who are taking part in a huge fundraising campaign to visit Kenya.

Twenty students each need to raise £3,800 for the trip next year which will see youngsters involved in environmental and community projects in Africa.
