One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is a Professional Footballer

No, the above photo wasn’t taken in PE class or a Halloween party – One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is actually playing football for a professional team. In particular, he made his debut for the Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday night in front of at least 5,000 1D fans… and some actual sports fans, one would assume. One Directioner even flew all the way from Michigan to see this bullshit, LOL.

Louis basically signed a non-contract contract with the Rovers last year as part of his charity work with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. If you don’t get it, don’t worry – no one does. What matters is that he got put in as a substitute at the 65th minute in the South Yorkshire derby fixture against Rotherham. He got to kick the ball around a little and even fell on his ass at one point and the game ended in a 0-0 draw. The end.

He was pretty stoked about it all, as evidenced by the tweets he posted after the game:

The funny thing is, having been to a football game in my time and being quite familiar with the fans who turn up, I guarantee you they were none too pleased with a bunch of screaming One Direction fans infiltrating their space. God, I’d have loved to have seen that.
