Featherstone reveal Summer Bash shirt

Featherstone Rovers have unveiled a Summer Bash shirt to celebrate their 1993 Premiership winning side.

The jersey is a replica of the iconic look donned during the Rovers’ record-breaking 1993 campaign when they beat Workington Town to win the Premiership.

The 2018 Summer Bash marks the 25th anniversary of Featherstone’s Premiership win, which capped a fine promotion-winning season.

Rovers’ head of communications, Ryan Sparks, said: “ “We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped make this project a reality.

“Blackpool FC and the team from Blackpool Tower and Visit Blackpool have been fantastic in accommodating us and it was great to see some big names from the 1993 season line up alongside current Featherstone players for the official photoshoot.

“The club is extremely proud of its heritage and there were certainly some popular names in 1992-1993 squad. The team achieved great things on the field and were certainly record breakers.

“Our Summer Bash game against Halifax takes place pretty much 25 years to the day of the club’s big win at Old Trafford, making it a perfect fit for a special-edition shirt.

“We hope to see another large following of supporters make the trip over to Blackpool, wearing the new strip with pride.”

They will wear the kit when they take on rivals Halifax in the 2018 Summer Bash at Blackpool FC’s Bloomfield Road on Saturday May 26.
