Rovers have, of course, continued with the traditional red and white hoops, though a ‘charcoal breathable mesh panel’ on the sides breaks up the run of the hoops.

The kit – manufactured again by Doncaster-based Elite Pro Sports - will also see the switch to red shorts from black or white, which have been used in recent seasons.

It is available to pre-order now on this link. Delivery is expected in mid-August with adult shirt prices at £45, juniors £35 and toddlers £30.

“The Rovers home shirt is something which is immersed in history,” said head of commercial Jon Warburton.

“Moving in to the new season, we decided to choose a classic design featuring the thinner hoops but also added elements of charcoal to the detail to align more with the Club Doncaster logo.”

An all-green home goalkeeper kit has also been unveiled.

The kit was officially revealed by 11 key workers from the Covid-19 pandemic that were nominated by friends and family.

Shirts were sent out to 11 selected to be part of Rovers’ ‘Our First XI’ campaign, who were then asked to film themselves opening the packages.

“We wanted to use the 2020/21 kit launch as an opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work of our NHS staff and key workers who have been keeping us safe through the pandemic,” said head of marketing and communications Shaun Lockwood.

“The 11 key workers who are taking part in our launch offer a true representation of Doncaster’s heroes during the pandemic from NHS staff to supermarket workers and delivery drivers.

“You’ll be able to find out a little bit about the jobs they do and why they were nominated throughout the Our First XI campaign and we're looking forward to celebrating the amazing efforts of supporters in our community."
