Louis Tomlinson of One Direction has signed a contract to become a professional soccer player for the Dancaster Rovers.

One Direction has already taken the music world by storm since losing in Britain’s X-Factor TV Show in 2010. Now it appears at least member of One Direction is taking a career turn, Louis Tomlinson has signed a soccer contract.

The teenage heartthrob has been given the number 28 jersey and become the newest member of England’s second division club the Doncaster Rovers.

One Direction is managed by Simon Cowell, and have had 61 number one hits world-wide. This includes both albums and singles the band has released. In the United States the band has developed a following near the proportions The Beatles enjoyed during their heyday, with 18.5 million Facebook followers and 71 Million Twitter followers when all of their accounts are combined.

It’s hard to imagine that Tomlinson or any other member of One Direction has not yet reached all the goals they set for their super stardom, however Louis Tomlinson will now realize what has “always been a childhood dream” according to the team’s website.

Tomlinson will not be taking a break from his hectic music work schedule to begin his soccer career, rather he will fit in games as his calendar allows. A peculiar move for a sport’s franchise to sign a part time player, but he hopes to help charity by playing whenever he can.

“Louis has always been passionate about football and wanted to realize a dream of signing to his home town club where he once worked on match days,” the team explained in a statement.

“I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it’s all about,” Tomlinson said.

A passionate fan of the team, Tomlinson actually helped the team during his youth by working at and attending the games whenever he was able to.

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has branched out and became a part time professional soccer player for charity. The Dancaster Rovers have signed an instant draw that will fill their 15,000 capacity stadium with ease every game he is able to participate in. A peculiar move that should pay dividends for both charity and the second division football team.
