Tomlinson made his big debut for the professional soccer club, coming in as a substitute in the 65th minute during a match against Rotherham; the game ended in a 0-0 score. But even though he didn't walk away with a win, Louis couldn't contain his excitement over the "incredible experience."
Wow what an incredible experience . Can't put into words how I feel :) I will never forget pulling on my own Doncaster Rovers shirt !!— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) February 26, 2014
The Doncaster Rovers usually draw a crowd of about 100, but with Tomlinson taking the field more than 5,000 1D fans turned up to cheer on the hugely appreciative boy-bander.
Really can't thank the team, the gaffer and every single person involved at Doncaster Rovers enough ! I feel like a 10 year old again !— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) February 26, 2014
Tomlinson used to work for the team's facility's burger bar during matches when he was younger. But last August, he upgraded, signing a non-contract deal with the soccer (a.k.a. football) club. The following month, Louis took the field for the first time against professional players in a charity match in Glasgow, Scotland.
Unfortunately, the singer was knocked to the ground during the game, a hit that left him so rattled he was caught vomiting on camera. Tomlinson later cancelled his official debut for the team due to the injury; he was originally set to start last September.
And obviously a huge huge thank you to everyone who came down :) a real credit to our fans :) hope it was a good day out !— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) February 26, 2014
