Alongside singer, songwriter, father, football player and potential movie star, you can now stick fashion designer on Louis Tomlinson's CV, as he's created the new team shirt for his beloved Doncaster Rovers.

Luigi and his Grandad Len won a competition to see their dream version of the Donny Rovers away kit become a reality for the players, but now the football club have released a statement to respond to all the backlash against Louis' winning entry.

Louis' fave team Doncaster Rovers have insisted that their design competition was "fair and above board" from start to finish, after followers of the club hit back at the fact it was won by their most famous supporter.

The Rovers asked fans to send in their ideas for next season's away kit before the top five designs were put into an online poll which Team Tommo then went on to win with 33.7% of the vote.

Once it was revealed that Louis was behind the design, DRFC received a whole lotta backlash with rumours that it had all been a fix - but they've insisted that that's just not the case.

"The process for receiving kit designs, shortlisting and the public voting for our kit design competition followed strict legal guidance to ensure that the club adhered to competition law and that all processes were fair," they said in a statement.

"We are aware that the result of the competition has attracted some mixed feedback, but we can assure our fans that the voting process for the 2016/17 shirt designs was all fair and above board."

Not only that, but Grandad Len has also confirmed that Louis will be donating the competition prize of flights to Thailand straight back into a charity auction, so you can't say fairer than that.
