Featherstone Rovers have announced that boot suppliers XBlades have become the main partners of the club’s under 16 scholarship.

The partnership includes all scholarship squad members wearing XBlades GTS boots.

XBlades have also become the official sponsor of first team captain and Ireland international captain Liam Finn. Rovers join only Bradford Bulls, Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves with an official partnership with XBlades in the United Kingdom.

XBlades UK representative Tony Miller said: “Featherstone Rovers are a club who are on the up and are continually making great strides on and off the pitch as they grow and aim for Super League status in the not too distant future.

“As a rapidly growing brand in the UK, XBlades is delighted to become a main partner of the scholarship and sponsor record-breaking Championship player of the year Liam Finn.”

Rovers chief executive Craig Poskitt (pictured) said: “We are delighted to attract another highly reputable and growing brand.

“Attracting the likes of XBlades as partner of the club shows our hard work is paying dividends.”
