Featherstone Rovers have invited Wakefield Trinity for talks over a possible ground share in 2018.
Last night Wakefield Chairman Michael Carter announced that Trinity would have to leave their current Bell Vue home thanks to new ‘minimum grounds standards’ policy being introduced for the 2018 season.
This deal could see Wakefield use Featherstones facilities for the day to day operations of the club including matches , training and the overall running of the club.
Rovers GM said the following on Featherstones website: ““We completely understand the situation Wakefield find themselves in and would be more than willing to support them where we can,” said Longo.
He also added: “Informal conversations between ourselves and Wakefield have been had in recent weeks and, prior to last night’s announcement, we formally offered Trinity an opportunity to begin formal discussions regarding a potential, temporary ground-share agreement for 2018 and, if needs be, beyond.”
