Probably via twitter as it was the news conference at half 10 this morning

 

These are the official tweets from @roversradio who were present at the news conference in the order they were posted

 

Press conference - Crossley signed for another club for nest year (we knew that) and Ben Hellewell also leaving, Tommy decided to join Fax, Roache , Sunley and chisolm shipped out, Hay didn't want them.

 

Lockwood has signed til 2017; Sharp signed to 2017. Kain , Hardman, to 2016 Dale, spears, cording to 2016, Ellis will not be leaving the club, James negoicating new contract bossy sign until 2016

 

Looking to sign Kyle trout permanently, Jason Crookes will get a years contract. Blackmore already signed. Liam Kent looking for two more yr Expect Jay Pitts to be a permanent player from next season.

 

Are you after a senior figure to lead the team? FN: strategy to bring young British talent in from SL, but we need some experience, Experienced players are hard to get hold of, did look at Michael Monaghan, playing & to be part of coaching team offer, but fell through

 

What abt offer to hudds for their marquee players? FN: enquired abt those hudds players. Hudds came back and told players were not available, there will be one marquee signing coming across though from Huddersfield announced within next four weeks

 

Considering Featherstone raised players? FN: want passion who wear blue n white. Constantly looking for such players, Featherstone had agreed terms with Carvell, dialogue continued, but in best interests for carvell and club for him to go to cas this season, RFL targeted Featherstone and asked for salary cap figs. Submitted and decided to hold back from Carvell deal for this season.

 

Made a very big offer for Leon Pryce to Catalans for him to lead the charge for next season, 2 more players also signed for next season but who will have to remain confidential for now

 

Media blackout was requested as there was a change in control behind the scenes, wanted to be left to get on with the changes

 

FN: club strategy is to get into SL first, investing in centre of excellence second, but still keen on signing on scholarship players and developing youth

 

What size crowds would Fev need to get in SL and sustain? FN: going in SL will make life easier. Finances in game have changed, With the £1.8m and astute business acumen behind scenes there is no worry about Fev making it in SL.

 

FN wanted sean long to stay at the club this year and offered to put in a 6 figure sum if he did

 

Report from RFL on salary cap has been glowing, Featherstone actually has cut the wage bill

 

DR was used as a loophole to get round salary cap, to cover injuries. Chris Annakin will be back at club after his ban, negotiating signing

 

****** WOW ***** Jarrod Sammut will be coming across on dual reg, hoping that he will play this weekend ...subject to phone calls to wakefield to check

 

Exact changes behind scenes? FN: Mark Campbell still chair but no longer has overall control. New directors come on board.

 

FN: John Bastian had lost the dressing room , club felt decision was right. Felt needed there was to be fundamental changes

 

Unity not quite there yet at the club, they should be winning those last 2 games, morale is improving tho, Players been thro a lot over last few weeks as contracts have been negotiated

 

Nahaboo asked how big a setback it would be if Fev don't finish top two. His answer: "We will finish in the top two"

 

is Gareth Moore staying: FN Moore and Flanagan are staying til 2015

 

Nahaboo also says Fev are going full-time from next year, most players on FT, apart from those who have other job that they wanted to retain, these players will not be PT players working PT for Foundation. 1 will be doing community work, First time in club's history that they will have Full Time players

 

AH: felt we had best week of prep last week, didn't get result on field,we looked way in front of team we were playing but didn't get result, players aware if they play well, and they have the shirt and they will keep the shirt, couple of players yest didn't play well so possible changes

 

FN: see AH as the man to lead the charge next season, even if don't make it into SL...will be given another go, Massive vote of confidence from the Board in AH

 

Building relationships with Huddersfield, Wakefield, and Hull currently

 

FN: in summary Featherstone Rovers as a club is in a very good place, Campbell, readshaw and Lumb remain on the board of 7 directors, Media ban is lifted

He also said that the dressing room is now a far happier place, as those left out of the 17 on a match day know they are on a full time contract for next year which has given them a confidence boost. They know they are wanted by the club and their chance will come around, unlike earlier in the season for some players who felt their face didn't fit.
Kyle Briggs is also on contract for next year and still part of the clubs plans. It was felt he needed regular first team rugby in order to regain his form and confidence, therefore he was loaned to Dewsbury.

Quick question for you guys, you may know or you may not, do directors ( these new ones ) have to go through the fit and proper person screening like other clubs do ?. It appears you have new owners etc along side Faisal.

Who are the new directors then? Where are the announcements of which players are being retained, certainly there seems more wooliness in several areas of that statement.  Makes a song and dance at Sammut coming on DR, but says they need to make phone calls to check.  Come on Feisal, you haven't even asked have you lol.  yet again a long statement but nothing much solid in it.  Even the staunchest Rovers fan must see that

Heres what i think is in it for Faisel.

 

Didn't faisel have something to do with cas before the move to fev right after poskitt and didn't he move to fev because cas didn't want to sell him any land?

 

Now he's moved to fev and whats to say he hasn't been offered land by fev? We can all say it's not for sale til cows come home but if he's sticking with the club til we get in superleague and then he's staying with us from goodness of his heart!? Ha ha ha business men are greedy, there will be something big in it for him i can guaruntee you that but in the meantime lets just all soak up the false statements and be oblivious to what is really going on shall we. 

 

We get to Superleague, he leaves with his land and then we either get more investors or sink like the titanic.

I would be concerned around the conditions he is placing upon any money that he's 'investing'.

Concerned about how much we are spending. Going to end up breaking some rule at some point.

It was stated you used DR as a loophole yo keep within SC. Hope someone has told him there are amounts applied for each DR player although not sure how that works. Part of Sammuts Salary will also have to be allowed for.

He can't touch the land. Any sale or transfer of land assets have to be voted on by the A shareholders exclusively. He can have as many B shares as he likes but it makes no difference. The A shareholders are the ex members who were given one each or subsequent season ticket holders who have purchased one. Only one A share is allowed per person.

Why are people so worried We have a person prepared to put money into the club and try to get us in SL. There is one thing for sure it is going to be hard to get there but if he wasn't here we would have no chance of moving up Lets hope he doesn't think like some of the supporters and decide to stay away because things are not going right at the moment. There has also been supporters moaning about statements made at the club they should look at what they actually write on social media about Featherstone Rovers and players

Whatever we think there is one thing I know is right and that is that supporters shouldn't stop turning up because we are not winning Let the men in charge do there jobs and make sure we do ours by turning up on a match day and supporting the club

The one thing we all agree on is we all want success from top to bottom and the only way we can do that is by pulling in the same direction Together we will get there

What it said if you read it correctly was ' Rovers to buy a pricey, giant marquee for Carvery'.
