Fev stalwart Hardman awarded testimonial

Ian Hardman has been granted a testimonial year for his services to the game.

With 309 career appearances to date, with the majority coming for Championship side Featherstone, the RFL saw it fitting to hand the former St Helens star a testimonial.

Hardman has won five trophies during his time at Rovers, helping Fev capture the League Leaders Shield in four consecutive seasons from 2010 to 2013 & winning the Grand Final in 2011.

“I would like to thank the RFL for granting me a testimonial year and also Featherstone Rovers for their continued support,” he said.

“I see this as an opportunity to celebrate my career to date with everyone who has helped and supported me along the way and enabled me to play a game I love for so long.”

The proceedings will be launched on Saturday 30th July at The Big Fellas Stadium with St. Helens legend and former teammate Paul Wellens as guest speaker.
