Whitehaven win Betfred League 1

​Whitehaven’s 72-0 win at Coventry on Saturday gave the Cumbrians the Betfred League 1 title and, with it, automatic promotion to the Betfred Championship for the season 2020.

Despite our rivalry, the congratulations of Oldham RLFC go to Haven on a massive achievement which will be all the more satisfying to them given that pre-season nobody outside the Recreation Ground topped them or honours.

The second promotion spot goes to the winner of the five-club play-off involving clubs finishing 2 to 6 inclusive.

Final positions will be determined after three crucial games today, namely Hunslet v Oldham, Keighley Cougars v Newcastle Thunder and Workington Town v Doncaster.

Currently second, Roughyeds will stay there in the final reckoning if they win at Hunslet (3pm kickoff).

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
