A Doncaster Rovers magazine which takes a sideways look at following the club has been named the country's number one fanzine at a glittering awards ceremony.

Popular Stand, which has been produced since 1998, scooped the 2016 Fanzine of the Year at last night's bash. organised by the Football Supporters' Federation.

The magazine is produced several times a season by editor Glen Wilson and takes a humorous view of life following Doncaster Rovers with a series of articles, regular features and contributions from fans. The magazine is not connected to the club.

Popular Stand beat off the challenge of Duck Magazine (Stoke City), Highway to Hele (Torquay United), Stand (Various), The Square Ball (Leeds United) and United We Stand (Manchester United) for the honour.

In a series of tweets in the wake of the victory, Popular Stand tweeted: "Thank you to all who've sent their congratulations to us. Will respond individually when time allow.

"But for now massive thank you to all our regular contributors and sellers; @MikeSFollows @howardbonnett @jacknpeat @jamesjammcmahon @JohnLeslieCoyl1, @justapubteam, @TonyCSGreenall, @DJLazarus, Chris Kidd, Alan Patching, Brian Witherden (and hopefully that's everyone)."
