Lezignan 7th May - Ladies Day

104 posts in this topic

Our Challenge Cup Fourth Round fixture against Lezignan XIII has been designated as a "Ladies Day" whereby all women are entitled to FREE ENTRY to the game. The match kicks off at 6:30pm and promises to be an entertaining encounter as both teams will be striving for a potentially lucrative Fifth Round tie against Super League opposition.

The club have also given the opportunity for everyone to ‘upgrade' and treat yourself and guests to pre-match hospitality in The Gallery. We will be serving hot beef baguettes with chips, onions and gravy (or salad) before the game. You will be able to listen to exclusive pre match interviews with Head Coach Daryl Powell and a first team squad player as well as presentations after the game. The cost of the upgrade is only £5 on top of the usual entrance fee (£15 adults, £9 concessions, £3 children).

Places are limited, strictly on a first come first served basis and all bookings must be made by no later than 5pm Thursday 5th May. To make a reservation please contact Paul Taylor on paul.taylor@featherstonerovers.net or 07584 684329 / 01977 702386.

Featherstone Rovers Reserves U23's also play Whitehaven Reserves U23's on the same day with a 2:30pm kick off.

Paul, could you clarify something for the supporters,

Given that the reserves play first what is the admission price for the reserves?Is it £18 then get £3 refunded if you leave after the reserve game or £15 for the 2 games and no refund?

This needs clarifying and heavily publicising so both the home fans and especially the away fans of Whitehaven are aware.

To watch the reserves only it will be £3. To watch both it will be £18 + £5 for snap.

I need to confirm the procedure on Tuesday when the office is open but I understand in the past that for situations like this, if people want to just watch the reserves they have to pay £18, get a receipt and then collect £15 on their way out.

Because it is going to expand the game and encourage new supporters to come along.Having the french play in the Challenge cup.................

It's a joke, we should play the game when it suits us and if the french or RFL don't like it then they should be given the same response as Mr Roby was given after the Leigh match by one or two well informed Fev supporters.

Because there's an Act that makes it so.

I'm not sure it is Daniel. Positive discrimination to encourage minorities is allowed in some circumstances I believe.

All female short lists in selection for MP's by the labour party is an example of this!

If you made blokes pay more to compensate - that would make it illegal I think!!

The club is trying it's best to encourage new fans, more females (mums might bring kids etc)!

I honestly can't see the issue.

am I missing summat???

Daniel.

So were you OK with Kids go free? If not you may want to go after the RFL and competition sponsors?

Is it OK that clubs have different age criteria for concessions?

Should the percentage difference charged between categories always be the same?

There really are bigger things to worry about. Forgive us for trying a new initiative that may increase the diversity of the crowd and attract a few new people to the game. BTW, last years was a success and the plods have not been knocking yet.

Perhaps we should have a family ticket for three parent families cos our current ones do not cater for all?

Just an update... The Gallery is NOW SOLD OUT so unfortunately no further upgrades are available.

In addition to planned activities we will also be showing the Leeds vs Crusaders game on the big screen in the Atrium (clubhouse main bar). We will be reducing bar prices on drinks between 3pm-5pm so an added bonus.
