In addition to the above, I would envisage the stand to be of a modular design, so we may not get all of it, but just enough sections to take us down to the Telecoms mast. Only time will tell.


the salford stand is only 75-80m long...so it would fit if it went from goal line to telecoms mast....

or cos the stand is modular..why not split it in 2..have half the stand on one side...and the other half on the otherside......then do the 4 or 5 step terrace round the rest of the ground?

Like I said there is less chance of objection if it is built on the Golf course side.

Hmmmmmmmmm!? I hope Tony Robinson and the Time Team people don't see that picture. They'll be putting a few trenches across it to identify those features. Looks like an iron age settlement to me :D :D

i don't think so...thats red line is where the fence is between the golf course & whitebank.

i remember whitebank playing field 20years ago before half the site became over grown,my gran used to live on whitebank road.....the site is very big..and could easily fit a 8-10k stadium on it..

There is loads of room on the Golf course side, as Spud states the red line on his picture depicts the area to work with.

Featherstone Rovers Rugby League club has been awarded £150,000 of funding from the RFL Facilities Trust.

The Championship club applied to the Trust for support for a new stand project which includes a 20m extension to the overall pitch, this stand was purchased from Scarborough Council and there are plans for the covered all-seater stand to house additional facilities.


Featherstone Rovers Chief Executive Craig Poskitt said: “It is fantastic news that our application for support has been approved by the board of the RFL Facilities Trust to enable us to press ahead with re-development of the Big Fellas Stadium.

Your going to look really silly if it is announced we will get something from the same fund.

i dare say £150k would enable us to clear & level the whole whitebank site.....then we can set about putting up the salford stand...

It's a rare piece of public knowledge that CH has applied.

Why would the RFL give money to a club that can't manage it's tax affairs and other business related finances in order,I would rather see the club go under than suffer a lingering death that this season will bring with no revenue to pay players or coaches and hangers on.This latest scheme of buying a piece of ground is laughable people will not buy into this wholesale a few might and maybe a couple of companies the only chance of survival is if a new benefactor comes along but the present one would have to go as nobody will work with him unless there is some great change the club won't see out this coming season.

er, you mean giveing to clubs that cannot manage their affairs like Bradford, Rochdale, et al.
If they did that, there'd be no Rugby League!
Wanting the club to fold shows how embittered you have become, and does you no credit. Who is to say what the outcome would be. We could become a Bramley, surely you donlt want that?

It amazes me the number of people that come on here saying they will never go again, yet they still insist on inflicting the ones that are still prepared to go with their misery. If you do not wish to go again, so be it. But go away quietly and don't try and play the infant school game of "all join on for".

You are not the only one on this forum who feels this way S10C. I can understand how supporters become disenchanted with a sport as this happened to me with football but what I can't understand is why so called ex fans become so embittered that they keep coming onthis forum just to slag off anything the club do . They seem to get some kind of perverse pleasure out of trying to put a negative slant on every bit of news about the club . Why can't they just move on and find something else to occupy their time .

Have got a Cousin who lives on Green Lane (towards Hollins Road) who says that the trees between Whitebank and the Golf Club may come under the Garden Suburbs Conservation area and as such have Tree preservation orders on them.

I dont think that anyone who as ever supported the club wants it to go under. Its what has happened to the club and the way it is run thats the problem.

The policy that the rugby league baffles me in that they help some clubs but not others.

They stopped Bradford going under until a buyer could be found. But we all know that clubs in SLare looked at in a different light than the championship clubs.

As for Rochdale did not the RFL take some security from the ground.

Rochdale are now run by the fans in a type of co-operative not by a limited companies with directors.

Oldham when we had a committee never had the problems we have today.

the "trees" are only 15-20 years old...its not a aincent woodland....its over grown wasteland....the area can be landscaped properly and the "trees" replanted or replaced with proper trees.....not overgrown weeds.
