  1. Both of those are already in the blog page, although Andy Hay is the only person in the list who didn't play for Fev.
  2. Possibilities amongst the Barkers: Alan, Nigel, George, Peter and Steve. Does anyone know if and how these are related.
  3. It's Eric and Ray. I got to know Jamie quite well when he worked for the Fev Foundation. He was not related to the others but whether Eric and Ray are related I don't know.
  4. It's still the same page but I have done many updates of it. The link at the top will take you to the revised version
  5. It's worth taking another look at the blog page because we have added loads more since the original posting!
  6. Really helpful is that, Andrew. But who is 'Choco'?
  7. An unknown person has posted in the blog suggesting that Graham Harris and Billy Harris were brothers, that Frank Hemingway is Ian Slater's grandfather and that Carl Dooler and Vaughan Thomas were cousins. Can anyone shed any light on these?
  8. Following the thread started on the Featherstone Rovers Heritage Society facebook page by Benny Towler, fevnut has done some research and produced a list of families we know about. Fathers and Sons, Grandfathers and Grandsons, Uncles and Nephews, Brothers and Cousins. Please let us know of any that we have missed.

  9. This is the Fev teamsheet and scorers from that match.
  10. Well done, Mark! I was looking for draws and didn't think to look at two-legged ties.
  11. I've searched the records, Colin and can't come up with anything to match. Only three draws in Fev Challenge Cup matches - 2 against Halifax and even you aren't old enough to remember that as they were both in 1925. We got through after winning the 2nd replay. The other was 1971 against Hull, too late for Eric Batten. Eric Batten played in three drawn matches for Fev but they were all league matches.
  12. 137 at Prop, 86 at Hooker, 8 at 2nd Row, 56 at Loose Forward and 22 as Sub. Adds up ok to 309.
  13. Good memory PH. 13 September 2012. Fev won 32-14. HT 6-14. Maloney was a sub but scored 2 tries and was the League Express Man of the Match. And you're right about Kevin Henderson as well. It happened in the 77th minute so had no impact on the final score.
  14. War Emergency League matches are included
  15. Only 56 starts at Prop and 66 in 2nd row
  16. Fev Through the Ages: Volume 6 (Prop Forwards) fevnut has now posted Volume 6 in our ‘Fev Through the Ages’ series and this time we turn our attention to the 10 prop forwards that played the most games at prop for Fev. The list starts with a player who is Heritage Number 1 and in 2nd place is a much more recent player. Have you yet spotted any player who appears in more than one list?

  17. Fev Through the Ages: Scrum Halves fevnut has posted our 5th volume in the ‘Fev through the Ages’ series. This time we move to scrum halves. It begins with a skulk (you’ll probably need to check that word) and continues with some wonderful players. We have been blessed with a succession of quality players at scrumhalf, many of whom have given long service.

  18. He played 376 in total of which 234 were at loose forward
  19. Several people realised. It is the most appearances in those positions. Over the next weeks we will be posting the Top 10 in each position on the fevnut's blog.
  20. That's their total appearances, not the ones in particular positions!
  21. fevnut’s musings: Season Hiatus and Fixture Pile-Ups fevnut’s blog is primarily, but not exclusively, about Featherstone Rovers (obviously!). This week we extend our sympathy to those at the RFL who have to make plans for any number of different scenarios and hope that they use the time to really think about how the season should look in a ‘normal’ year. We also take a look back at the fixture pile-ups that often used to occur at the end of the season when rugby league was a winter sport.

  23. fevnut has put together a Fev team spanning our history since 1921. There is something particularly significant about these players. The question is - Can you work out why they were selected? What is it that is special about these players? Take a look at this team by clicking on the link below https://fevblog452.blogspot.com/2020/03/a-fev-team-through-ages.html
  24. fevnut’s musings: Milestones, Unbeaten, Mothers and NO ’C’ WORDS! The latest edition of ‘fevnut’s musings’ is now available to read. We’ve tried to avoid using any word beginning with the 3rd letter of the alphabet!! This (very strange) week we mark a couple of player milestones, write about mothers (it is Mother’s Day on Sunday!) and wonder whether 2020 will end up being Fev’s most successful ever season.
