The Fev Families

Recommended Posts

Jack and Like Briscoe are another pair of brothers that have turned out. 

I think that there will be quite a few instances of in-laws too. 

Steve Evans and Gary Siddall were in-laws at one bit.

Steve Barker wasn't related to any, he was from Castleford. Nigel's brother is Lyza (spelling) 

There was a Brian Barker as well at Jubilee. 

Lyza's real name is Derek. The eldest brother Gordon is a big Rovers fan. Brian Barker at the Jubilee is Peter and Alan's brother.

Good knowledge buddy. I used to drink with Lyza in Chequerfield in the early 90s in the Grove Lea, which, sadly is now a one stop.

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.

I think Jamie is Andy Cording's Step Son.

The late Charlie Stone and John Newlove are Brothers in Law, so Charlie is Uncle to John's boys. Also John's Brother Dave played the odd A Team game I believe.

Neil Woolford. 

Everyone knew him as 'Choco'.

Like Paul Handforth was always known as 'Tiger' and Paul Lyman as 'Bosh'

Perhaps a useful thread would be a nickname one. 

 

That would be a good idea, especially if someone posted the nicknames but not the identities of the players and we had to guess.

I don't know if we have had enough "unusual " nicknames though. Choco, Tiger and Bosh were all good ones that you couldn't guess from their names. Pee Wee and Stilts are two other obvious ones, and in the modern day Iro and Tuna. But I couldn't think of many others off the top of my head (and you can't count "Baby Faced Assassin", as Tuuta hated that and nobody ever called him it really anyway bar that Aussie commentator and other journos).

Dave Cording played for the reserves in the early/ mid 80s. Andy played winger for Featherstone high school Ca 1999.

Legs Elford, Butch Payne, Happy Jacob's, for the older fans.

My favourite nicknames are Keith Bridges, Charlie Stone, Billy Harris.

I think William is Billy Harris' give 2nd name rather than nickname. 

It used to say 'William Harris' over the door of The Houghton pub when he was landlord.

There was Cyril and Dave Kellett who were Brothers, and Cyril's son Brian.

I believe Ken (rip) was from Castleford and no relation to the Kellets mentioned in your post.

Can’t believe no-ones mentioned Tommy (loose forward) and Ian Smales. 
And what about John Hay and former coach Andy Hay.

Lets not forget, Featherstone Rovers is a RUGBY club.

Jeff Cording played in the A Team, and I think he was Sub for the First Team on one occasion at Hull. His brother Keith played for Featherstone Miners Welfare and the Travellers as did Jeff. Sadly both are no longer with us.

Nicknames take a while to become accepted don't they, from memory Charlie Stone was listed as Richard Stone in programmes/ press for some time after he signed from RU, same with John/Keith Bridges.

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.

I know he didn't feature for Featherstone but can someone confirm that Steve Ferres is NOT Brett Ferres' dad, as used to be reported by S*y at the start of his career?
