Official Featherstone Rovers Statement: Incidents After Last Night's Game

Once again a fantastic advert for Championship Rugby League has been overshadowed by a minority. The behaviour of those mindless individuals at the Featherstone Rovers V Halifax Northern Rail Cup Semi Final will not be tolerated. Anyone identified of being involved in fighting will be banned from the club for life.

Featherstone Chief Executive Simon Riley said "We have some mobile phone footage which we are reviewing to identify individuals, we also have a number of names of the people who started the trouble. These people are not true supporters of Featherstone Rovers and will therefore be banned. I urge anyone who has any mobile phone footage or can identify any individuals to come forward to the Police or the club, who will pass information to the police. Emails can be received to [email protected] or phone the club on 01977 702386. Any information brought forward will be treated with the strictest of confidence."

He continued "Featherstone Rovers is an ambitious club looking to grow both on and off the field, we have strong relationships in the local community and with the local police. We have ambitious plans for redevelopment of the stadium and the surrounding areas, but unless we address the problem we have and root out the mindless minority we will never progress. I urge you to come forward with any information and I assure you we will act on it."
