A charity football match is being held today which will see One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson bring his Three Horse Shoes team to face a Rovers XI at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Doncaster born Louis has been tweeting about the game and sending his fans into a frenzy as they heard about the match which will raise funds for local children's hospice Bluebell Wood.

Kian is over the moon that he is going to be a mascot, we're all big Doncaster Rovers fans so we're really looking forward to the game. Kian met Louis when he visited the hospice last year and it's fantastic to see that he was touched by his visit and has chosen to support a local charity, we hope that it raises lots of money. Bluebell Wood is a lifeline for our family and we don't know what we'd do without it.

We're so excited about the match, lots of our families will be attending and we're all really proud that Louis is supporting us. The money raised will make a massive difference to us and will help us to support more local children with a shortened life expectancy.
