Featherstone Rovers start pre-season training tomorrow evening (Monday) ahead of the 2016 Kingstone Press Championship season.

Fans will have a chance to meet the club’s new signings at an event on Wednesday night when the club will also unveil the designs for their 2016 playing and replica kits.

The Cappers Bar will be open from 6.30pm with the event kicking off at 7.30pm.

Rovers chairman Mark Campbell said: “We finished last season on a high under Jon Sharp which cumulated in lifting the Kingstone Press Championship Shield with our fine victory against London Broncos.

“Jon and I have been working very hard assembling a competitive squad for next year and with some announcements still to come, we are really excited about the forthcoming season.

“The players start pre-season this week and I know all the players and coaching staff are eager to get started and working hard utilising our excellent facilities that we have.

“It’s a new season for us, it feels like a new start and I can’t wait for the pre-season fixtures to start after Christmas. We’ve just about finalised our pre-season programme of fixtures which will be announced shortly so it’s all systems go for an exciting and successful year.

“As well as meeting the new squad on Wednesday we’ll also be unveiling the design of our 2016 home and away shirts. The designs are brilliant and I’m positive they will prove to be our most popular kit for a number of years.

“We’ll be taking pre-orders on the night for when they go on sale in December as we are only getting a limited number to start with and as we announced earlier this week, season tickets are selling well so there is plenty to look forward to.

“It would be great to see a packed Cappers Bar on Wednesday to welcome our new squad and to build momentum for 2016.”
