Darren Moore and Coaching Staff in Self Isolation

On Thursday 5th November, Doncaster Rovers discovered that manager Darren Moore and his coaching team had been in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. Neither Moore nor his team are reported to have shown any symptoms but will self isolate in line with quarantine regulations.

Andy Butler Takes Charge

In the event of COVID-19, Doncaster Belles coach Andy Butler is the man tasked with taking charge during this period. Butler has little time to get up to speed as he takes training on Friday 6th November ahead of the FA Cup First Round match away at FC United of Manchester.

No playing staff have come into contact with the positive case so Butler has a full squad to select from.

AFC Wimbledon Report Positive COVID-19 Tests

Doncaster Rovers’ last match was against AFC Wimbledon and they have now confirmed that some first-team players have tested positive. It is not known at this stage why therefore the Doncaster Rover players are not having to self isolate at all. FC United of Manchester are aware of the situation and are happy for the match to go ahead with the FA happy that all protocols have been followed by Doncaster.

Next Matches for Doncaster Rovers

Following the FA Cup tie against FC United of Manchester, Rovers play Wolverhampton Wanderers under 21 team in the newly named Papa John’s Trophy. The game on Saturday 14th November, however, will be postponed due to international call ups.

Following the International break and Darren Moore’s self-isolation, he and his team will be fine to return to their roles assuming their COVID tests come back negative following self-isolation. That will be for the game against Sunderland on November 21st.
