Youth product Featherstone, a protege of Nicky Barmby, emerged in the City first team midfield in 2007, but his first team chances were severely limited by the Tigers’ first ever two year spell in the Premier League. He left the club in January 2011 after only a handful of first eleven starts across four and a half seasons.
Nicky had already amassed lower league experience during loan spells while at City. When he left the Tigers in early 2011 Featherstone joined Hereford United and spent a season and a half at Edgar Street that ended with relegation from the Football League. Two seasons at Walsall were followed by short spells at Scunthorpe United and Harrogate Town. In October 2014 Nicky signed for Hartlepool United, where he remained for many years and attained legendary status with the North Easterners through sheer longevity.
