Massive thanks to all concerned

We wish to give a massive thank-you to everyone who got involved in our re-run of the 2019 Promotion Final win against Newcastle Thunder.

We won again, would you believe!

And the icing on this particular cake was to see and hear, on our Twitter platform, so many supporters obviously thoroughly enjoying their involvement with the club and the players again during these difficult times.

A big thank-you to CDX Security, our main sponsors, for again backing the retro presentation and to The Property Buying Company as match-ball sponsors of the virtual event.

Thanks also to everyone who sponsored former head coach Scott Naylor and the 17 players on duty in the final plus several other members of the squad who didn’t play on the big day but who had contributed significantly over the course of the season.

Other fans made donations to the club or made purchases via our virtual club shop and a massive thank-you to those people too.

Like all other clubs and business generally we are working hard to try and minimise the negative effects of the global virus and it was encouraging to see the response we got from people who clearly have the future of the club at heart.

The passing of time has done nothing to take away the magic of that big day last October, as enjoyed by supporters and players.

You can hear and read their comments and their memories of the 18-14 promotion-clinching win on Twitter where fans have had their say and where you can listen to the sincere and clearly heart-felt memories of players such as Liam Bent, Ritchie Hawkyard, Zack McComb and Jimmy Beckett.

Cameron Leeming tweeted:

Thanks again to you all. Keep safe, keep well, keep following government guidelines and we all look forward to the day we’ll have more rugby league to enjoy without the ‘virtuality’ bit.

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.
