With Rovers and Dons games on hold for at least another month and the Belles seeing their season voided by the Football Association, income streams into Club Doncaster have almost entirely halted.

While it is understood that the organisation is in no immediate danger of severe financial struggle, they have highlighted ways in which supporters can help ease the pressure which is set to increase over the next few months.

The letter read: “With no fixtures, we cannot pretend there are not real challenges to our football club and almost all of our income streams have been switched off virtually overnight.

“But we are all working very hard and we are determined we will come through and continue to be an amazing community-focused club.

“Due to the volume of messages we have received over the past few days we know many of you want to know how you can continue to support the club during this time and assist the club’s cash flow.

“We wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of our supporters for those messages of support and while we know many of you will have your own concerns over the health of loved ones and perhaps your own finances, for those that are able here is how you can continue to support your club.”
