FEATHERSTONE ROVERS have signed winger Scott Turner from Sheffield Eagles and made forward Steve Snitch’s loan spell permanent.

Turner, 27, scored 17 tries in 30 appearances last season and coach Jon Sharp said: “Scott was one of the first players on my list of recruits. He has a great attitude, good skill levels and his height, athleticism and ball skills will give us an added attacking dimension next season.”

Turner said: “Growing up in Castleford, I always admired Fev as a club and knew what the team means to the fans.

“They were always winning silverware and I want to be a part of that and help them win some more.”

Snitch spent the last part of the 2015 season on loan from Doncaster and he said: “I’m really happy to be joining the club on a permanent basis. It was a breath of fresh air when I switched, especially moving to a side which won most of its games.

“I like the way Jon has introduced the youngsters to the first team and look forward to helping them develop.”

Sharp added: “I thought Steve added a great deal of experience, composure and energy in the latter part of the season and contributed to the great run of wins culminating in lifting the Kingstone Press Championship Shield earlier this month.

“With just under a month until we report for training I’m happy with the way the squad is shaping up and am looking forward to getting to work with the players in pre-season.”
