Featherstone Rovers suffer stadium break in as thousands of pounds of equipment taken

Featherstone Rovers have confirmed that yesterday evening there was a break in at their stadium.

Thousands of pounds worth of equipment was stolen during this break in at Post Office Road.

The club have released the following statement asking fans for their help:

“Yesterday afternoon, between 16:45 and 17:15, the pictured individuals broke into the stadium, taking thousands of pounds worth of equipment.

“We’re urgently seeking information that can help us resolve the situation.

“Please contact; Martin.vickers@featherstonerovers.co.uk.”

Following this Martin Vickers commented himself.

He took to Twitter to say:

“Somebody out there knows who these lads are, contact me urgently to get this resolved, words fail me!”

It comes at a disappointing time with the Rovers looking every bit like a Super League team at present after scoring nearly 100 points in their first two Championship games of the season beating fancied new boys Keighley Cougars in Round One prior to victory over promotion rivals Halifax Panthers at home just days before this disappointing break in.

Fortunately the club appear to be on the front foot with this issue and hopefully it can be resolved soon.

That said, the club will no doubt feel that it has taken the gloss off a terrific time for them.

Pity the side who could incur their wrath next week.

They take on Whitehaven at home over the weekend who were beaten by London Broncos on Sunday.

So it will be a difficult time for them against a Rovers side frustrated after this disappointing news.
