The club statement reads: 

All three fans will be banned from attending Featherstone Rovers home and away games with the club putting measures in place with away clubs to help prevent them from attending any games, through the circulation of their images.

Travelling support to the Halifax game has been marvelled by staff, coaches and players with everyone at the club wanting to thank the majority of fans who made the journey over to The Shay to support the team. This fantastic support has however now been tainted by a few choice individuals, who have damaged the reputation of Featherstone Rovers fans.

Following this and the recent fines over inappropriate language from fans, the club are in discussion with West Yorkshire Police around safeguarding and best practice as we look to move forward to better prevent anything more damaging the reputation of the club.

If you hear any inappropriate language while attending a game at the LD Nutrition Stadium please use our anonymous Crowd Care Text Service to report it. All you have to do is message 07394950356 with the information.

On behalf of all the Featherstone Rovers fans, staff and players, we whole heartedly apologise for the actions of a few people to anyone who has been offended by comments made and we would like to thank supporters of Halifax and Featherstone for their cooperation throughout this process.
