Bob had a long and successful professional career, playing mostly for Castleford and then Featherstone Rovers. He also played for Bradford Northern (as it was then).
Bob signed on for Castleford in 1968 and became a regular there until 1983.  Bob remembers the John Player Trophy seasons of 1976/77 and the Floodlit Trophy successes that he had at Cas. An early memory was as a young player coming out of the "A" team to play in the first team against St Helens whilst still a lad. The occasion was made even more special in the presence of a crowd of 12,000 spectators.  While still at Cas, Bob had the satisfaction of a Yorkshire Cup win in 1981.  Bob made over 320 appearances for Cas including one amazing run of 51 consecutive matches.
Bob moved on to Featherstone Rovers where he played from 1983 to 1986, making 112 appearances.

Chris is the elder of Bob's two sons.Chris has moved through the ranks at Featherstone, having played for the    Juniors, Under 13's, Under 16's and the academy team. Chris signed up for Featherstone Rovers in March 1998.  At this point he was an exciting prospect, with pace. He had already played for Featherstone in a tournament in France.
He has undoubted ability and the gift of being able to score tries.  Chris has become a regular player in the Rovers first team scoring some great tries and developing his game.
Lets hope for more of the same .
Good Luck Chris
