    Lesson one, don’t use social media or other sites when drunk, first you lose your way of thinking, then you lose your sense of humour, then you throw your teddy out of the cot, then you look silly 😂😂😂😂😂 #DryJanuary

  5. Percy’s big day out

    FEATHERSTONE Rovers are delighted to announce the launch of the club’s all-new ‘Percy’s Big Day Out’ initiative. Launched in partnership with Task Utilities, the scheme is designed to provide children with a fantastic experience away from the traditional learning environment of the classroom. Via the club’s fan engagement officer Kevin Creighton, the Rovers will be looking to bring a taste of an LD Nutrition Stadium gameday experience direct to schools across the district. Our very own Percy the Pit Pony will be on hand as we visit schools and learning centres, spreading the word of Featherstone Rovers in 2018. Superb ticket deals, merchandise offers and much, much more will be available for children - and their families, who take part in Percy’s Big Day Out. Rovers general manager Davide Longo said: “We are aiming to offer children positive experiences outside of school hours. “We believe it is important children enjoy, and have access to, sport and cultural events. Through this new partnership with Task Utilities, one of the club’s newest sponsors, we are able to provide such opportunities. “The club is striving towards what we hope will prove a memorable 2018 season and we want families across the district to be a part of it. “Enriching the lives of children is a key part of what sport can achieve, particularly in rugby league and at Featherstone Rovers.” Creighton, who is heading up the campaign, added: “As a lifelong supporter of Featherstone Rovers, this is something I cannot wait get going with. “We are planning to interact and engage with children and families for miles around, bringing people together and closer to the action. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the local schools who have already joined the programme. We look forward to welcoming many more to the party.”

    ROVERS skipper Ian Hardman looks set to make his first appearance of the year after being included in head coach John Duffy’s 19-man squad ahead of Featherstone’s friendly encounter against York City Knights (kick-off 3.00pm).

  9. 2018 Squad.

    FEATHERSTONE Rovers have been denied the opportunity to complete the signing of former Toulouse Olympique star Kuni Minga, the club can confirm. The club was notified of Minga’s availability last week and Rovers officials moved swiftly in a bid to secure the Papua New Guinea-born winger’s services. A deal to bring the 24-year-old to the LD Nutrition Stadium was agreed by both Featherstone and the player, pending governing body approval. However, talks have broken down in the last 24 hours after the Rugby Football League (RFL) claimed Minga would not qualify for governing body endorsement (GBE). Despite making 45 appearances for Toulouse in the last two seasons, scoring 53 tries as a Championship and League 1 player, the RFL have stated that Minga did not meet the initial requirements which were in place at the time when he signed for the French club. Furthermore, Minga had to have appeared in 75% of competitive matches for the period of his previous contract. Records show the outside back, who was named in France’s initial World Cup squad, has played in 73.7% of Toulouse’s competitive fixtures since 2016. Rovers general manager Davide Longo: “We are extremely disappointed at the RFL’s decision not to grant Kuni a GBE. “Kuni is a player who has been on our radar for some time and when he became available we acted quickly to get a deal done. “We believe Kuni would have been a revelation both for Featherstone and the Championship as a whole. “But our efforts to bring another high-profile player, who we believe has the potential to become world class, have been thwarted. “We worked tirelessly in 2017 off the field to ensure the club was well positioned for this coming season. "It was always our plan to recruit a team which we believe could challenge in the Qualifiers come September, pushing hard for a place in Super League for 2019. “Kuni was very much looking forward to joining the club and challenging himself at the top of this division but we are now left with no choice but to walk away from the deal, which had been agreed in principal.”
  10. PROGRAMME

    It’s getting the fine balance of how many to print these days and the cost of doing so. When I used to sell them many years ago prior to social media sites they were like gold dust, not anymore, there’s generally loads left. Also to be honest on Sunday when I was selling the golden gamble those stood selling the programmes were not very forthcoming into letting folk know they were selling them as they were just stood there and folk were asking us if there was any on sale. Now me a my projected voice would have let them know 😂😂😂😂
  11. 2018 Squad.

    FEATHERSTONE Rovers have beaten off stiff competition to complete the signing of former England international Gareth Hock. Hock, who has made over 250 domestic appearances since turning professional in 2003, has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the club. The former Wigan, Widnes and Salford forward arrives following a three-season spell with Leigh Centurions. Hock is seeking further success having helped the Centurions to promotion in 2016, an achievement he believes Featherstone are capable of emulating. He is to be sponsored by one of the Rovers’ newest commercial partners, TASK Utilities, for the 2018 season. “I am really happy to be joining Featherstone, where I have enjoyed some great battles in the past - with Wigan and Leigh,” said Hock. “There is a buzz about the place and, having spoken to Martyn Ridyard about how much he is enjoying life here, signing was a no-brainer. “I have experienced promotion to Super League with Leigh, it was one of the biggest achievements of my career, and would love to do it all over again with Featherstone. “The club has recruited very well and will certainly challenge the likes of Toronto and Leigh at the top of the table. “I am looking forward to playing my part in what could be a really special season for Featherstone.” Head coach John Duffy welcomes Hock as his eighth new addition ahead of the 2018 Betfred Championship. Duffy believes the Wigan-born front-rower will bring “power and aggression” to the Rovers’ ranks and cannot wait to begin working with his latest recruit. “Gareth will add a great deal of value to the squad and I am very excited to be bringing someone of his calibre to the club,” said the Featherstone boss. “His experience is priceless and he will play a big part in what we are looking to achieve this year. “The club has done a great job in getting the deal over the line. Now we need to get Gareth ready to make his debut, which will hopefully be in the next week or so.”
