FEATHERSTONE Rovers revealed their first-team squad numbers for 2011 at a social event in the clubhouse last night.

The squad numbers are:

1 Ian Hardman, 2 Bryn Powell, 3 Sam Smeaton, 4 Andrew Bostock, 5 Tommy Saxton, 6 Andy Kain, 7 Liam Finn, 8 Tony Tonks, 9 Ben Kaye, 10, Stuart Dickens, 11 Jonny Grayson, 12 Tim Spears, 13 Matty Dale, 14 Liam Welham, 15 Michael Haley, 16 Iain Morrison, 17 Greg Worthington, 18 Ross Divorty, 19 Zak Hardaker, 20 Dominic Dee, 21 James Davey, 22 Jon Steel, 23 Tom Carr, 24 Mufaro Mvududu, 25 David Nurse, 26 Ryan Gaunt.

Meanwhile, Featherstone have announced two ticket offers for their first competitive game this season when they host Doncaster in the Northern Rail Cup on Friday, February 4 (7.30).

Rovers season ticket holders will be able to buy a £10 discount ticket, giving them a chance to bring someone new to the game.

Season ticket holders of Super League clubs will be admitted to the game for £10 on production of their ticket.

Rovers director Andrew McNeil said: “By occasionally discounting additional tickets for our season ticket holders we give even more added value to being a season ticket holder and people a real incentive to encourage lapsed or potential new supporters to come along. The advance ticket purchase should be done on line or via the club office between now and Wednesday, February 2.

“There are no Super League games that weekend, so it’s an ideal opportunity to give fans of Super League clubs a taste of what spending an afternoon or evening with us is like.

“Rugby League is a family and it would be great to see a few of our neighbours sampling a local fixture sporting their colours. We just thought it was a nice thing to do to kick off our home season.”

Admission prices for Saturday’s reserves friendly against Dewsbury Rams at Bigfellas Stadium are £5 adults, £2 concessions and £1 children.

Featherstone’s Championship game against Sheffield Eagles at Bramall Lane - originally scheduled for Good Friday, April 22, has been re-arranged Sunday, August 28 (3pm kick off), subject to neither side being involved in the Challenge Cup final the previous day.
