Doncaster's Andy Butler: 'I was willing to step into the police force last summer'

Had things turned out differently Andy Butler could have had a collar number and been on duty for South Yorkshire police this weekend, but after returning to Doncaster Rovers in September his uniform remains familiar. Without a club last summer, Butler was set for a career change, but instead of patrolling the streets, on Saturday he will take on West Ham in the FA Cup fourth round hoping to safeguard the Doncaster defence. “I had a literacy exam, then had to do fitness exams and a bleep test. Then Doncaster asked me for a trial and I had to put that on hold,” he says. “Luckily, it’s gone pretty well.”
