Rovers Reveal Final Images of Proposed Development Story in brief:
Featherstone Rovers released final images of the proposed redevelopment of the Big Fellas Stadium
Featherstone Rovers last night revealed the final computerised images of the innovative Big Fellas Stadium re-development that have been submitted to Wakefield Metropolitan District Council for planning permission approval.

The latest plans were revealed in front of a large audience who had attended a Q&A evening with Rovers Head Coach Daryl Powell, Captain Stuart Dickens, CEO Craig Poskitt and Director Steve Wagner to celebrate our debut appearance in the Northern Rail Cup Final on Sunday.

The computerised images reveal how the two stands that were transported last year from Scarborough Town FC's former stadium, the McCain Stadium will be utilised. The images show how the famous pitch will be extended by 15 meters and the two stands will be erected at the Railway End of the stadium.

Featherstone Rovers CEO Craig Poskitt said "We thought it was timely to reveal our final plans before our trip to Bloomfield Road. We are hoping to receive planning permission imminently and supporters have been waiting patiently for the final design. The plans were very well received and are an integral component of our Destination Super League Campaign".

As Featherstone Rovers prepare for the Northern Rail Cup Final, the club has seen unprecedented merchandise sales as excitement reaches fever pitch. Craig Poskitt added "Our supporters are looking forward to the trip to Blackpool and have really embraced throughout 2012. We are sure it will be a carnival atmosphere and memorable weekend by the seaside."
