And of course there were a number of rugby clubs in Featherstone before (and after) the Rovers.

My Dad was born in 1900. He told me that when he was young he played for Purston White Horse. He was living near the Travellers in those terrace houses at the time. It was a long time ago but I  remember him telling me. He took me to my first game at Rovers in 1938.

This is delightful and valuable material, excellently presented. Really good reading for Rovers fans, rugby league fans, residents, and anyone with a connection to the town and its sport.

Thank you.
