Sacked Doncaster Rovers Mascot Asked To Return
A mum of 3 sacked as the Donny Dog mascot for Doncaster Rovers after posing for a saucy photoshoot will be offered her job back.
Hairdresser Tracy Chandler was fired after stripping to her underwear with the Donny Dog costume in an adult-orientated Sunday newspaper.
But she will now be asked to return as her sacking was deemed to be an overreaction.
Rovers chairman John Ryan said: "I spoke to her this morning and said I would look into it. I think she'll be keen to come back when I've spoken to her."
Ms Chandler said she was sent an email by the Championship side, saying they no longer required her services, following her newspaper appearance.
Mr Ryan said: "Some people thought it was inappropriate, which it was, so we took a dim view of it.
"But I think sacking was a bit over the top.''
He added: "She's a very good mascot."
The 40-year-old has appeared as Donny Dog at the club's Keepmoat Stadium and at other events for about three years.
She admits she did not tell the club about her photoshoot but stressed it was "tastefully done" and that the paper donated all the money to the NSPCC.
