Jimmy Thompson
Featherstone Rovers, Bradford Northern, Great Britain.



Super tough Prop forward joined featherstone in 1967, a wembley winner of the same year and in 73 unfortunately losing in 74.

During this time he appeared 20 times for great britain before moving in 75 to bradford where he continued his career helping bradford win regal trophy division 1 and and yorkshire cup awards.

Jimmy is still the only featherstone player to win the ashes against australia and as a team the the last tourists to win since 1970.

Where now?

Jimmy lives local to pontefract and can be seen occasionally at featherstone matches since his retirement as a financial advisor.

Jim still has a big interest in rugby league and will admit he would still like to
play if only his knees would let him
