one directions louis tomlinson signs as non contract player with doncaster rovers

It looks like Louis Tomlinson will be taking his talents to Doncaster!

The One Direction heartthrob has been a HUGE soccer football fan his whole life, and he saw a childhood dream come true today as he signed on as a non-contract player with his hometown team, the Doncaster Rovers!

Louis has a long history with the team as he actually worked at the stadium before he rose to stardom, and more recently helped them organize a charity game! Now he's hoping they can team up again and raise some money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice!

He released a statement on the exciting news, saying:

"This has always been a childhood dream for me. I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it’s all about."

Awww! We're SOOOO excited for him!

But before you start thinking that this is all about charity, the team says they are ACTUALLY hoping to see Louis suit up and hit the field sometime this season!

The team's website says:

"As part of the signing it is hoped that Louis will be able to appear in Rovers colours at some point this season in aid of Bluebell Wood and train with the lads."

How exciting!!!

We can only imagine all of the screaming Directioners who will be attending their first ever football match JUST to see him get some playing time!

We're sooo thrilled for Louis and we're glad this is all for a great cause, but we still have one HUGE question: Where can we get our hands on a Tomlinson jersey?!?!

Ch-ch-check out Louis signing on with his new team (below)!

    This actually genius for both parties involved. Boy bands are seen as prissy non masculine so this definitely combats those stereotypes. Plus the ticket says for this stadium's games will go up thanks to Louis getting time to be there. And the heck with skeptics complaining about a pop star getting to play so soon while there's so many aspiring soccer players. He was there working at the stadium long before 1d. Charities are tax write offs though he doesn't need the money it seems like a non fake celeb venture which is refreshing for once.

    Completely agree with you, brilliant business move for both sides. Also, such a cool thing for Louis!! His hometown, he worked there before he was famous…looks like another childhood dream come true for him.
