Les shows off his new shirt.

For football-mad Les Shaw still plays the beautiful game on a weekly basis despite his advancing years - and was presented with a shirt to mark his birthday milestone by team-mates.

Les travels to the club's Keepmoat Stadium twice a week from his home in Woodlands to take part in Retro Rovers sessions - games of walking football, which as the name suggests, are played at a slower and gentler pace.

Les with his special Rovers shirt celebrates with team-mates.

Les, a lifelong Rovers fan, was presented with an away shirt emblazoned with the number 80 to mark his big day.
