DONCASTER Rovers revealed their new home kit at Monday’s Forum for the Future.

Modelled by James Husband, the shirt ditches the black trim and features a red panel on its reverse.

Monday’s event also revealed several key points in Rovers’ short term strategy:

n Chief executive Gavin Baldwin has drawn up a two-year business plan which predicts that the Keepmoat Stadium will break even - with any profit to be added to Dean Saunders’ playing budget.

n Rovers have abandoned plans to relaunch their reserve team because of the cost implications.

n The club will embark on a makeover of the stadium’s bars and matchday catering menus.

n There are no plans to rename the Keepmoat Stadium, with nine years still to run on the current naming rights contract.

n The Doncaster Rovers ‘brand’ is expected to eventually encompass all the main tenants of the Keepmoat Stadium - including the Dons - as part of the ‘Sporting Club’ model, which the Free Press exclusively revealed in March.
