Featherstone Rovers Archive Site Launched


Recommended Posts

To coincide with celebrations for the centenary of our proud club as a senior league side, the Featherstone Rovers archive site is now live and online.

Plotting the history of the club from 1921 to 2021, there is a lot to see. The site contains a record of every game played by Rovers since August 1921 (more than 3,600), biographies of every player who has ever played for the Rovers first team (more than 1,100), as well as an extensive programme collection and photograph library, along with a wealth of other material. The aim is for this site to be one of the most comprehensive of its type in the rugby league world.

The website is the fruit of years of planning and preparation by Stephen Parker and Mark Kirby, but draws heavily on research, donations and work undertaken by numerous people over the decades who have helped tell the story of Featherstone Rovers. Particular thanks go to Irvin Saxton and Ron Bailey, as well as Ian Clayton who have all given kind permission to use their published work on the site.

This is very much an ongoing project, so they are looking for your help too. If you have any information to add about any of Featherstone Rovers’ players, or if you have any photographs, programmes or other material that are not yet on the site, please contact them by email to fevarchive@btinternet.com or on the Featherstone Rovers Heritage Society Facebook page. If you can help them with the momentous task of adding thousands of match reports to the site, they would be happy to hear from you.

You can now visit the Featherstone Rovers achive site at: fevarchive.co.uk

Great work.

Every club should have one.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.
