Featherstone Rovers have confirmed the signing of Jake Spedding from Barrow Raiders for the remainder of the 2019 Betfred Championship season.

Spedding is a St Helens Academy product who made his Betfred Super League debut in 2016 before signing for the Raiders. He has made 20 appearances for Barrow in 2019, scoring five tries.

Spedding said: “When the opportunity came up to sign for Featherstone it was too good an opportunity to turn down, they are a huge club with big ambitions and I’m excited to be part of the team for the rest of the season and hopefully be successful through the playoff's and take Featherstone to Super League.”  

Featherstone Rovers are pushing for a place in the Betfred Championship play-offs and face a tough trip to York City Knights on Sunday.
