Fev invite rugby league family to help Dons

Featherstone are inviting the rugby league family to their clash with Doncaster this Sunday to help the financial-stricken South Yorkshire club.

The Dons, who entered administration in 2007, are believed to be struggling once again, and have recently lost star half back pairing Kyle Briggs and Paul Handforth to Featherstone and Batley respectively to ease their money worries.

Featherstone have announced that they are inviting season ticket holders from any other rugby league club to attend Sunday’s game at the Chris Moyles Stadium, and upon payment of the standard £14 entry and presentation of their own season ticket at a dedicated turnstile, Rovers will donate 50% of the entry fee back to the Doncaster club.

Andy Prout, Rovers Chief Executive, stated: “It is a very challenging economic and financial time for all clubs, but it is particularly sad that having achieved promotion from division two last year, Doncaster are now facing tough times both on and off the field, and it is times like this that the Rugby League community must pull together for the long term sustainability of the game.

“Whilst only a small gesture we at Featherstone Rovers are pleased to be able to make this offer available and hope to be able to provide some form of financial assistance on the back of people watching rugby league at this level, so we are asking all season ticket holders and “true” Rugby League fans show their support for Doncaster in this difficult time.”
