Widnes Vikings were named as Club of the Year at the annual Co-operative Celebration Dinner in Manchester last night (21 Sept).


Even suprised me this one. Obviously they don't just take on-field performances into account.

Thought I'd bump this up.

I'd hate the thought of anyone missing the chance to offer us their congratulations.
Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

Yeah, well done Widnes for getting over the 2500 attendance threshold for SL without cheating (4500 to take Fax over in their last home game V. Batley, less than 2000 in their elimination playoff v. the Eagles) .

Well done for bringing so many young players through to the first team (how many have Featherstone, in a winning side ? Manning, Smeaton, Hardacre . . shall I carry on ?).

Well done for losing the NRC final against a team with far fewer resources, and well done for finishing fifth in the league before getting hammered (to nil) by a coachless Barrow.

I'm astonished how Rover's didn't get it, and how achievments on the field seem to have been ignored.

But I do (seriously) congratulate Widnes for jumping through the right hoops and getting the almost inevitable SL licence.

biggrin.gif It was club of the year though which suggests more than just what goes on, one the field.

Some of the stuff written about Widnes by some of the Championship fans is getting laughable now.
