Featherstone sign former Super League forward

Featherstone have confirmed the signing of former Huddersfield and Wakefield back rower Dale Ferguson.

The 31-year-old had a brief loan spell with the club last season and has now signed a two-year deal after being released by the Giants mid-way through the year.

After making his debut for Wakefield in 2007, Ferguson has gone on to make over 200 professional appearances and has also had spells with Bradford and Hull KR.

He arrives at the LD Nutrition Stadium fresh from captaining Scotland to the 2021 World Cup, after beating both Serbia and Greece in the Qualifiers.

“As a young lad I supported the club and last season I got a taste of what it is like to play here on a month loan and I can’t wait to get the chance to play here permanently now,” he said. “For me 2020 is about getting some game time and consistency after a rough old time in 2019 dealing with injuries.

“After that then it’ll be about helping this team achieve all of its goals both on and off the field.”
