Good week for Fev. On top of securing the sponsorship of Taylor Wimpey here's another biggy. Maybe the RFL ought to employ our commercial guy. Take a bow Mr Paul Taylor

quite so. as I said, "well done" on getting some money for shirts (how much ?) from a billion pound turnover company that employs a lot of people in the area. any idea why Linpac gave up on Fev sponsorship 25 years ago? Any idea what Linpac hope to get from this deal? How long is it for?

I'm not sure it's fair to say Linpac gave up on Fev.  Business/Sponsorship relationships are rarely for life.

 

They're a global company, although I wonder whether this is from the local budget rather than anything more central.  Sainsbury's were the sponsor for the magnificant Wakefield Trinity for a number of years, but this was a local arrangement with the store who had been assigned some budget for PR for a reason I forget, rather than being a full blown "corporate" affair.

 

It's a good news story for Featherstone, lacking any details and blown out of all proportion as usual as is the way these days.

Not the same Taylor Wimpey developers who are all buoyed up by the government trying to force through new house builds on green belt?

 

How many acres does your club own??  I think Griff should be told.

1. Any idea why Linpac gave up on Fev sponsorship 25 years ago? 2. Any idea what Linpac hope to get from this deal? 3. How long is it for?

 

1. It co-incides with Rovers relegation after an earlier period in which the club won the league and the cup.

 

2. Reflected glory if the club get to Superleague, and close by corporate hospitality for Linpac's clients .

 

3. As long as the club remains in Superleague and competes well enough therein.

 

Just an educated guess.

Appears to be more than 'local' with the UK and Ireland MD of LINPAC involved in the announcement.

Great work by Paul Taylor and Featherstone Rovers.

 

Well done Terry Mullaney. Larry, Parksider, and JohnM already. Just short of a full set.

You're probably right but I don't think it matters, I had assumed they were based elsewhere as I seem to remember they were once called Lincolnshire Packaging or something like that.

 

I also don't share the obsession that some have that our sponsors have to be well known brand names or global firms, so long as they're ethical and they pay up then it's all good.

 

I'll say it again too, well done Featherstone.  A credible sponsor.

Isn't all the houses we live in built on what was or equivalent to green belt.  Always amuses me when our neighbours complain about new house build when they live in houses that other neighbours complained about,   they in turn living in houses that other neighbours complained about.... so on and so forth..... But I guess that's not one for this forum but i couldn't resist a response....

 

Mind you the land that Huyton and formerly Liverpool City use to play on is now houses and road plus a community centre.... amongst houses that where built on green belt before the land was bought by Liverpool Corporation to house us out of the slums and war damaged homes.....

Why? because he jumped into his car and drove a mile to Linpac!

I only hope my brother who works there - and from Cas - wasn't part of this.

Got on a Cas to Leeds bus last week.  One of these electric hybrid jobs.  The engine sort of powers down at stops.  Very annoying,
