He has to go down as one of the best club men we've ever had.
Thanks for the memories Stu and best of luck for the future.

It must be very difficult for him to leave after being involved with everything Fev for so long.
I am sure everyone wishes him our very best for his future and appreciate every joule of energy he has given us over his fantastic career.
I will treasure his Grand final winning shirt that he signed for me last month.
I wonder how long it will be before he returns as our head coach after his training at Wakefield.

You have been an inspiration to the whole club & have been a superb figurehead for the Rovers.
I believe you should be very proud not only of the massive contribution to Featherstone but also the way that you have gone about conducting yourself & the example you have set for others.
All the very best for the future & I hope you come back to us in the future!

A true gentleman off the field and a work horse in the field of play. His best years at the club came with the present coach.
In the modern game not many players devote such a long time at any one club.
Must be a future addition to the Hall of Fame at some stage.
Thanks for all you have done for the game and Featherstone Rovers. Good luck at Trinity, you will be able to take that winning feeling to them.

Our official web site. 'In talks with 2 Super League players to replace Stu.' That shows the man's standing. Simply the best.
Yeah heard matt James is one of them don't know who the other is though

I have seen almost all of Stuart's games at home and many away. He always gave 100%. And the longer a game went on, the more he became a thorn for the opposition. He just kept coming. Very many thanks from the Bullock and Graham Gang.

As you say, probably be called after a sponsor. But as we are buying bricks at the moment for the new stand how about extending your idea to a square of bricks in the centre of the wall commemorating Stu's career? That would be a fitting tribute.
Does the new stand have a name yet? The Stuart Dickens Stand has a nice ring to it. Though I guess sponsorship might be the overriding factor.

Within those teams Stu has played his part in the only way he knows giving 100%.
It's easy to let slip the times when we were somewhat average and Stu led from the front, on occasions keeping us in games on his own.
Being a great leader at Wigan for example, is no where as difficult as being a great leader in an average team.
For the best part of 15 years that is what we have had the pleasure to see unfold in front of us.
The various coaches only needed to pick 12 players as No 10 picked itself by the stature of the player inside it.
Tremendous player who IMO is a true legend for absolute effort and consistency over such a sustained period of time.
Many great memories,starting when he was only 18 in the 1st team and one of the best was him planting a smacker (no tongues though) on the Cas prop in last seasons cup game.
Thank you Stu.
