THIS Sunday we will be bringing you a special edition of The Flat Capper, as the club officially launches its 50th anniversary Challenge Cup celebrations - marking half-a-century since the Rovers’ first-ever Wembley triumph.
Issue eight of Featherstone's official matchday magazine provides a modern twist on the programme sold on that famous day at Wembley, which saw Featherstone defeat Barrow to clinch the coveted trophy for the first time - and it comes stacked with exclusive content.
This is a true collector’s item and is hugely limited in supply, featuring a captain’s log by Mal Dixon – who skippered the Rovers to cup final success on that momentous day in the capital - and a unique re-make front cover.
We have interviews with Wembley heroes Keith Cotton, Vaughan Thomas and Mick Smith, while featuring Hall of Fame man Carl Dooler and Tommy Smales – in ‘On The Loose’.
Stephen Slater, a long-standing Rovers supporter, speaks of his Wembley memories in ‘I Was There’ and we ‘Meet The Team’ with club secretary, in 1967, Ron Bailey.
Sunday’s Flat Capper recalls the game’s most memorable moments, the aftermath of it all and profiles the ‘Cup Kings’ themselves.
We review Featherstone’s ‘Route To The Final’, take a look at ‘What The Papers Said’ and feature a host of memorable images from that incredible weekend of Rovers action.
The Flat Capper includes, in addition, all of its usual features as we gather the views of head coach Jon Sharp and chairman Mark Campbell, while paying tribute to their predecessors, in Laurie Gant and John Jepson.
This unique, special edition of The Flat Capper will be on sale throughout The LD Nutiriton Stadium – priced at just £3 – from when gates open at 1.00pm.
