End of an era as the Railway End is no more. Well done Fev, actions speak louder than words.

To the best of my knowledge, yes it is.

Cracking stuff. I will miss the railway end probably as much as I missed the bullock shed when that came down too. It's great news though.

Yeah gaz is right. That is the plan as the stand will be closer to the railway and the post office rd end will be moved away from the houses so their will be potential to put a stand up at that end if needs be.

Not trying to take the shine off anything, recognising the effort, commitment etc and its a short but serious question that may require a long answer. Why is the Club doing all this?

Because they want to play at the highest level as they did in the past and not just settle for managed decline like Swinton, Oldham, Hunslet, Barrow and York appear to have done. They want to recapture the glory days when "unfancied" Featherstone beat the best the league could offer. The buzz when we beat Cas and took Wigan all the way last season had to be felt to be believed. Come on Fev!

York aren't settling for managed decline. York are a couple of seasons away from playing in a brand new stadium. At the moment the club is preparing itself to hit the ground running for when that time comes in 2015.

Great news for Fev though, I'm made up for them. Can't wait to visit when its all finished!

No need to be so defensive. Where have I said the club should not do that. In any case, we've already had a good response from Trojan. I really expected that you'd have an instant response.

OK, lets try again. Why is the club doing all this?
