The club is pleased to announce that the away fixture against Doncaster RL has now been arranged for Wednesday 5th July.
It will be held at Featherstone Rover’s ground, Post Office Road, as pitch maintenance work at The Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster is in progress.
The match was originally planned back in March but due to Sky Sports football coverage and Whitehaven canceling the 3rd round Challenge Cup tie, the game had to be postponed as Cup matches take priority. Both clubs have been in regular contact with one another to discuss dates and suitable availability ever since.
Blues CEO Adrian Smith commented “I fully appreciate the situation Carl has had to deal with and it hasn’t been easy with such fully packed fixture and Cup lists. Carl has been very understanding and accommodating in getting a new date arranged and I would like to thank him for that. I’d also like to take the opportunity to add thanks to Featherstone Rovers for allowing the game to take place at Post Office Road.”
The game will be a 7.30pm kick off on Wednesday 5th July.
