BRADFORD AND FEATHERSTONE TO REMEMBER LATE, GREAT PETER FOX
BRADFORD Bulls and Featherstone Rovers will once again compete for the Peter Fox Memorial Trophy this Sunday – in remembrance of the late, great, legend of Rugby League.
Peter enjoyed two successful spells in charge of Bradford Northern, winning two league Championships having also enjoyed triumphs in charge of Featherstone.
Part of the famous Fox trio, Peter also played for the Rovers as part of a glittering career within the sport that saw him inducted into the Hall of Fame at both clubs.
Featherstone first lifted the trophy following their success against Bradford last May – which was presented by Peter’s wife and family.
Bradford Bulls Director, Mark Kilgallon said:
“It is an honour for us to take part in the Peter Fox Memorial fixture and we hope to put in a performance befitting the occasion.”
“Peter’s impact on both the clubs – and indeed the sport – is still felt and that is a true sign of his standing within Rugby League.”
“The word legend gets banded about often in sport, but he is a true legend and on Sunday we will come together with Featherstone to remember him and pay our respects.”
Our thoughts remain with Peter’s family and friends.
