5000 fans of the boy band star were in attendance for his debut, which was done to raise money for a local hospice, and Louis opened up about his debut after the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

"It's just been fascinating really to get a real insight into the football world and to be invited to that was such an honour," Louis revealed in a conference after the game, reports Sky. "I've really enjoyed it and I can't thank the people at [Doncaster Rovers] enough for having me.

It's absolutely amazing," he added. "I was just thinking that those boys get to do that every week.

"It really is such an honour to be involved in a flu that I spent most of my childhood going down to the games. Just putting the shirt on is a boyhood dream."

One Direction are set to kick off their new stadium tour this year.
