To say Louis Tomlinson's soccer career got off to a rocky start would be a bit of an understatement!
And unfortunately, the combination of his recent injury and his Gatorade allergy meant he had to miss his highly anticipated professional debut for the Doncaster Rovers earlier this week!
But that didn't stop him from suiting up and making an impact for his hometown team!
The athletic One Direction heartthrob showed up to the match against the Scunthorpe United (what a funny name!) and proved to be the perfect cheerleader!
However, Louis didn't just ride the bench on the sidelines! He also took some time to pose with fans, adorably play with babies, help out with the raffle, and even cut the grass after the game!
Ok, so we made that last part up! But the important thing is he showed up and brought a TON of screaming 1D fans with him!
Sure they probably weren't paying much attention to the game itself, but it's the thought that counts, right???
Ch-ch-check out more photos (below) of Louis' day with the Rovers as well as a video of him supporting his boys …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
