One Direction heartthrob more likely to throw up than score
He may have emptied the content of his stomach onto the football pitch the last time he played in front of a big crowd, but that hasn’t stopped 1D star Louis Tomlinson from turning out for his beloved Doncaster Rovers (reserves).
Tomlinson, a member of Simon Cowell’s USA-breaking boy band, signed for his boyhood heroes Doncaster Rovers on a non-contract basis after impressing in a Charity match held at the club’s Keepmoat Stadium.
Having previously been lined up to debut for the club’s reserves against Scunthorpe back in September, an injury sustained playing for a Celtic side in another charity match only a few weeks prior put the kybosh on it.
On that occasion it was Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor who incurred the wrath of Louis’ teenage fanbase on Twitter, after a rather full-blooded tackle on the popstar left him in a crumpled heap and even caused him to throw up.
So when the defender turns out against Rotherham United in front of an expected crowd of 4000 – many of which will be female and under the age of 18 no doubt – Ladbrokes have deemed it a 5/1-shot he vomits on the pitch again.
Meanwhile the firm attach odds of 25/1 that Tommo scores the first goal of the game, 8/1 that he notches within the 90 minutes and a sending off can be backed at 33/1.
Which direction his debut will take is unknown, but it’s unlikely his pop mentor Cowell will be among the masses in the stands as he gets to grips with telling the nanny what to do with his newborn child.
The 22-year-old full-back could yet display the X-Factor that the Championship side require to steer them clear of relegation this season.
