Eye but Fev are the only 1 to get a crowd bigger than there population



Yes but they're all related anyway, so they count twice.















I think that's right.

If I was writing a $uperleague bid for Featherstone, that isn't a "fact" that I'd want to emphasise. It just creates an impression that they rely on away support.

OK - let me put it another way.

There aren't enough people in Featherstone to support a stable $uperleague club and your comment supports that.

It knocks nothing on the head. He's been looking to run a Superleague club, IIRC he didn't pursue things at Halifax, he didn't pursue things at Cas and has chosen Fev to put a few hundred grand into.

The man wants Superleague - all the rich people do - he may actually get it at the lowest possible price, which is what he may be looking at.

Don't expect millionaires to come flying into keighley based on this modest investment.


Are Featherstone a Cc club or are they not? Have they attracted investment at this level when posters have said no CC club ever would.?

The ambition to be in SL does not change the fact that, at this time, Featherstone are a championship club attracting a rich investor.

You don't get a lot for several hundred grand. It will need at least several hundred grand every year.

When I next see Mark, Craig and Feisal I'll mention that to them Parky. Maybe they don't realise and will thank me or maybe I'll get a slapping instead.

Luckily these magnificent iron horses and carriages of steam move in and out of our fair township.

You're welcome OR. It would be a sad day for the game if there was no Featherstone Rovers.

Blimey! Mark Campbell writes as if SL is a certainty. Good for him, that should shake up a few chairmen elsewhere.

Well done Fev.

Thanks John its so nice to read a positive statement from a fan for a change than the usual drivel that people post which is mostly gloom and doom.
