Cording comes to Fev

22 posts in this topic

Hudds forum would suggest they're disappointed to see him leave and that he's been unlucky with the quality of players in from of him. Sounds like he'll go well for us, and to me is just the sort of signing we should be targetting.

Seeing the names Crabtree and Cording takes me back to the fifties. Any chance of a Lambert and a Fawley, Allman, Hoyle, Tennant or even a Miller? Just to menmtion a few.

Last I saw OR there was an emerging stand there. But seeing as you have seen a Hoyle I'll just take a butchers at it.

Sign her on! Walt and Alan both great players Incidentally I was asked about the comment I made regarding Hoyle. Joe Hoyle was a winger who played for Fev. He was a butcher who had a shop on Station Lane. Butchers is rhyming slang for look. Butcher's hook - look. Hope thay explains it.

Dick Allman was a very good stand-off who played 164 games for Featherstone between 1941 and 1949. Those were tough years for the Rovers.

 

 

I wonder if Jamie Cording is related to Ray.

They were tough years Mark, I remember them well. No railing around the ground then just wooden open fence like nnnn. The kids used to go on the field and have a kick around at half time. With us having a lot of miners in the area who played rugby it was because of the war years an era of guest players around the clubs. Training before Batten was twice round the field and a bit of a kick about. Just one league with a lot of lost games at Fev.

And the turn around in fortunes was all down to Abe Bullock!

My Grandad was long serving prop forward Frank Hemingway, and he was forever telling me about the time he had virtually signed for St.Helens, but Abe changed his mind and wouldn't let him go, saying the transfer fee was too low. Apparently before then Rovers were forever selling their best players for peanuts and Abe said he was going to keep them all in future and build a side instead, unless the money was good and the move was right for Featherstone Rovers.

Now that the old Bullock shed has gone, I reckon one of the new stands should be named after him. Trouble is, that would be a lost sponsorship opportunity.
