Championship side with brilliant gesture of respect ahead of first game of pre-season

The year 2022 is coming to a close and with that we sadly leave behind many loved ones but Featherstone Rovers are trying to ensure that those loved one are remembered with a brilliant show of respect at their upcoming game.

Rovers host bitter rivals Castleford Tigers at the Millennium Stadium on New Years Eve and the Championship side have announced plans to “take time to remember” those who have passed away in 2022.

The bitter rivalry will be put aside in the moments before the game as fans in attendance will remember and pay respects to those being recognised.

Featherstone tweeted their plans asking if any fans had someone in mind who had a dear love of the club, or a connection of any sort, to get in touch to arrange their recognition and remembrance.

The club haven’t made it clear how those loved ones will be remembered but the contact details are those of Martin Vickers, the Championship side’s Chief Executive Officer, who will be able to facilitate anybody willing to have their loved one remembered.

It’s a touching and thoughtful show of respect from Featherstone who will bow out of 2022 and head into 2023 with the last domestic game of the year, and in doing so honour those loved ones that have been lost.

If you wish to have a loved one recognised at the game on Saturday the contact details to get in touch and arrange that are linked in the above tweet.
