Featherstone record points-scorer Steve Quinn passes away

Featherstone have confirmed that their record points-scorer Steve Quinn has passed away aged 64.

Quinn, who began his career at York in 1970, amassed 2,656 points for Rovers through 75 tries, 1,200 goals and 10 drop goals in 393 appearances from 1975-88.

“It is with regret that we learnt this morning of the death of Steve Quinn following a period of illness,” the club said in a statement.

Whilst Quinn was at the Rovers, they won their first league title in history with him in the team. The 1976-77 campaign, which was only Quinn’s second season at the club after joining for just £500 from York, saw him break the record for most goals and points in a single season ever seen at Rovers.

He also would later kick the decisive penalty as the West Yorkshire club won the Challenge Cup, 14-12 against Hull at Wembley.
