James Webster leaves Featherstone as club explains why after honest revelation

Featherstone Rovers can confirm that James Webster has parted company with the club by mutual consent.

Webster’s contract was up this month, and he has taken the decision to focus on his studies and lecturing work at Leeds Beckett.

Featherstone Rovers Chairman Mark Campbell commented: “I had been talking with James throughout the season about extending his contract for the 2022 season so was shocked, when at the 11th hour in the season he advised me that due to his personal commitments, he didn’t want to coach in Super League if the Club were successful in the Grand Final.

“Throughout my leadership of the Club, I have had the sole burning ambition of Featherstone Rovers achieving its Super League goal, so I have had no alternative but to decide to look for other alternatives who share the same drive.”

James’s legacy at the Club will be an extremely successful Centenary year where we won the 1895 Cup and came so close to achieving our Super League objective, I thank him for all his efforts, we will redouble our efforts to make sure we stand the best possible chance of achieving our goals.”

James Webster oversaw a captivating season in the Championship where we won 20 from 21 games as well as a Cup win at Wembley for the first time since 1983.
