Doncaster Rovers' woman mascot 'sacked over saucy photo shoot'

June 9, 2011 - London

Bosses of Doncaster Rovers Football Club have given the red card to Britain's only woman mascot - after she 'disgraced the team' by posing in raunchy undies for a national lads mag.

Mother-of-three Tracy Chandler says she only agreed to show off her curves to help raise money for children's charity the NSPCC, which the club has been supporting with a series of fund-raising activities.

But directors reckon the glamour pictures gave the football club a bad image and thus booted her out of her voluntary role as mascot Donny Dog.

Tracy, from Armthorpe, Doncaster has been wearing the Donny Dog costume at matches and representing the club at charity events in the town for four years.

"I can't believe what has happened. I am livid that they have done this. I have worked hard as the mascot and I didn't even get paid for it. I loved the job and I was more than happy to do it," the Sun quoted her as saying.

"The club has sacked me and I am devastated because I only did the pictures in the first place to help raise money for a really worthwhile charity.

Tracy added: "Now, they are saying I have disgraced the club. Maybe they have forgotten but it wasn't that long ago that some of the players did a n*ked calendar for charity with footballs strategically placed to protect their modesty."
