Steve Quinn passes away

Former Featherstone and York centre Steve Quinn has died at the age of 64.

Quinn, who began his career at York in 1970, joined Featherstone in 1976.

He amassed 2,656 points for Rovers through 75 tries, 1,200 goals and 10 drop goals in 393 appearances from 1976-88, becoming Featherstone’s record points-scorer.

“We would like to extend our condolences to Steve’s family and friends,” the club said in a statement.
Quinn was signed by Featherstone in the 1970s for just £500. He was brought immediately into the first team, making his debut for the Rovers against Wakefield Trinity on February 15th, 1976 and kicking four goals in the win.

Most famously, Quinn kicked the winning penalty as Rovers lifted the Challenge Cup at Wembley in 1983 with a 14-12 win over hot favourites Hull.
