The alarm bells are ringing!

SUNDAY’S impressive display against Whitehaven - and the assured performance of Paul Cooke - might just have got a few alarm bells ringing among Doncaster’s Championship One rivals.

And it would not be the first time this season either!

Dons’ players and officials could be heard enjoying a sing-song after their convincing win at the weekend; their post-match victory song has become a regular thing under coach Tony Miller.

Miller revealed, however, that the same victory song was responsible for a comical incident after the club’s recent Northern Rail Cup win at Gateshead Thunder.

Miller said: “The last time the victory song came out was at Gateshead and some of the lads were regretting it by the end of the night.

“They’ll usually bang on a table to get a beat going but because there was no table in the changing room they were banging against the walls - which set the fire alarm off!

“A few of the lads were down to their pants and obviously we all had to be evacuated - and it was a pretty cold night up there in Gateshead too!”

Cooke (pictured left with Liam Cunningham) certainly looks capable of causing alarm in opposing defences this season if his display at the weekend is anything to go by.

n Dons will host Sharlston Rovers in the third round of the Challenge Cup over the weekend of March 24/25.
