FEATHERSTONE Rovers have taken delivery of their new 2013 home replica shirts.

The replica shirts have arrived from Bologna in Italy, in addition to a new leisurewear range. The shirts will be on sale at a special launch evening next Thursday (December 13).

Rovers chief executive Craig Poskitt said: “We are really excited about the shirt launch on December 13 for what we feel will be a hugely popular shirt with supporters.

“We have been working really closely with our partners Macron and it is fantastic that the shirts have now arrived in plenty of time for Christmas which in previous years has not always been the case.

“I know some people were starting to panic a little but as promised the shirts are here in good time and indicates how the club is making great progress in all departments.

“We have record sponsorship, engaging with a record number of people in the local community, the ground re-developments are progressing well and we have another strong squad for 2013.

“All this points to an exciting time for everyone connected with Featherstone Rovers as we strive to return to top flight rugby league.

“We are making great strides and it would give everyone a further boost at the club if we could reach our next milestone of 500 memberships sold before the shirt launch night.”

Friday (December 14): 10am-4pm, Saturday (Dec 15): 10am-1pm, Sunday (Dec 16): 10am-2pm, Monday (Dec 17): 9am-4pm, Tuesday (Dec 18):9am-4pm, Wednesday (Dec 19): 9am-4pm, Thursday (Dec 20): 9am-4pm, Friday (Dec 21): 9am-4pm, Saturday (Dec 22): 10am-1pm.
