Featherstone sign local centre

Featherstone Rovers have confirmed the signing of local centre Gareth Gale on a two-year deal.

Gale previously played for the club in 2018, but had to leave because of other commitments.

But after a successful trial period, including scoring four tries in Rovers’ historic clash with Valencia Huracanes, he has now re-signed for the club.

The 26-year-old told the club website: “I’m really happy to have signed for Featherstone Rovers. It’s such a good feeling signing for your hometown Club and particularly the Club you grew up supporting.

“I feel like the trial period I have had has gone really well, it’s given me the opportunity to showcase my skills and show what I’m really capable of.

“It’s been a real learning experience working with the coaches here and being around experienced and talented players. They’ve all helped me improve my game and I can’t wait to get started this season.”

He will hope to be in the squad for Featherstone’s Championship opener against Batley Bulldogs on 2nd February.
