Featherstone Rovers have confirmed that two warm-up fixtures have been scheduled so far for the 2014 season at the Bigfellas Stadium.

Rovers are currently in negotiations with other clubs for two further warm-up games, which includes the Gareth Swift Memorial Cup match and a likely local derby with Castleford Tigers.

But they have confirmed that they will be at home to Wakefield Wildcats on Sunday, January 12 with the game kicking off at 3pm.

Featherstone will also host Championship rivals Halifax on Sunday, January 19 (3pm kick-off).

Rovers operations manager Darren Payne said: “We are planning a tough pre-season schedule for the first team which will provide a good test for the newly assembled squad.

“We are hoping that these two games plus a further two to be announced in due course will really whet the appetite for both Featherstone Rovers supporters, visiting supporters and neutrals alike.

“The year 2014 promises to be an important year for Featherstone Rovers and we encourage supporters to take advantage of our early bird 2014 membership promotions.”
