Featherstone Rovers have reportedly received a winding up petition from the taxman but the club say the arrears will be paid off this week.

A petition to wind up the club was presented on October 28 by HM Revenue and Customs.

Rovers chief executive Pat Cluskey said today: “Basically, it’s regards to some money that was due in October and the final payment will be made this Thursday.

“It relates to money from October so it’s not long-standing or relating to money from years gone by.

“We have made two payments and the third payment will be made on Thursday.”
