After 50 years in the wilderness, Doncaster Rovers have finally made it back to the second tier of English football. As the club stormed to victory in the Coca Cola League One Play-off Final against Leeds United, supporters were treated to the sort of match most fans can only dream of."Wembley 2008: 129 Years in the Waiting" recounts the team's progress on that fateful weekend. Starting with the players' departure from the Keepmoat Stadium on Friday morning, the book charts their arrival at Wembley and their performance on the hallowed turf, before vividly describing the post-match celebrations and the victorious return to Doncaster on Monday.Celebrating their third promotion in five years, Doncaster Rovers have achieved a feat that would be tremendous for any club.

Ten years ago they had slipped out of the Football League and could have been heading for obscurity in non-League football, but now the players are ready to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the game.What has happened over the past 10 years is a truly remarkable story, and this pictoral extravaganza is the perfect keepsake to show family members a further 50 years down the line-let's hope that by then we many more exciting chapters will have been written in the history of Doncaster Rovers. This book narrates the momentous events of the 2008 Coca Cola League 1 play-off final. It is officially backed by Doncaster Rovers Football Club.
