After the success of the international best-sellers Featherstone Rovers Yearbook 2010 and Featherstone Rovers Yearbook 2011, work has now begun on this year's edition.

Another memorable year, Im sure you'd agree, with many ups and downs, highs and lows, ins and outs, laughs and tears, smiles and frowns, shouts and whispers, victories and defeats (not many of them, but still).

Having read previously volumes, Im sure you know the format, but it's basically the story of the year, from as many angles as possible. I'd like to hear from anyone who would like to share their thoughts and feelings about the year. Players, fans, volunteers, whoever.

Have a think about it , and drop me a PM. If your words focus on one particular moment, one awesome try, one crunching tackle, one witty comment, one cherished win, or one special feeling, then it's easier to find a place for it in the book.

Go for it.

Anyone who hasn't read the 2011 edition can still purchase a copy from the club shop/website. It's a fantastic read and a must for all Rovers fans. I can't wait for this seasons, let's hope it has a happy ending like last years.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed so far.

Which was your try of the season? So many to choose from.

My try of the season is one that probably wasn't the best move but it had a huge significance in my opinion. We had just conceeded 60 the week before and we were then to play Castleford. The game started with Cas almost going the length of the field, then scoring shortly afterwards when young Daryll Clark cut through our defence to score (albeit, it looked a little short) at this point Robin and I looked at one another a little sheepishly, the doom brothers thinking that we were riding for a hiding. Sure enough Cas were on the attack again shortly after, with sphyncters twitching we watched Danny Orr put a huge bomb up into the air in our 20, only for the ball to catch the wind and fall into Briggsy's arms, he then fed Tangi who hared for their line, with Orr in pursuit he cut back inside and scored a try which in my opinion gave the lads and the crowd belief that we were in business in a match which, in some peoples minds, was the most important match for Featherstone Rovers in the post Super League era. The rest is History.

The defensive efforts against Wigan and cas are my stand out moments of the season , they epitomised what it is to put on the featherstone jersey and drain every last effort out of your body, priceless for me

Plenty of contributions in so far. If folks use their real name I can give you credit in the book.

One of the highlights for me this season has been the line busting runs of James Kitchen. He's moved up to the reserves and looks comfortable at that level already. He plays with a smile on his face and is a big hit (pardon the pun) with the fans who follows the reserves. He also has a wicked offload pass that seems to work every time.
