Rovers have strengthened their board of directors with the co-option of Steve Godber and Dave Downs as Associate Directors. Both have strong Rovers and Rugby League connections, and each brings a unique set of skills and knowledge that will be vital as the club enters one of the most exciting and important phases of its history. Rovers' Chair Mark Campbell said;
"There isn't a part of the stadium that Steve hasn't been involved in repairing, installing, sourcing or building over recent years. He knows every brick and girder. He also has the people skills and has the respect to make his new role in managing the stadium infrastructure a productive one. Steve will also be responsible for developing our club lottery...a very important income source for Rovers."
"Dave Downs has developed community initiatives, which have gained widespread respect and have been accredited by the West Yorkshire Police. His 'Tackling Temper' scheme is highly acclaimed, and used in schools and young offenders facility inside and outside West Yorkshire. Dave developed his work whilst conditioning coach at Rovers, and a version of it; 'Pathways' is used by us.
He is the man to take our community projects, and our profile in this area to a higher level, and make our already highly regarded community work the standard by which others are judged,"
