calvert,macavoy,cullnean,crellin,newton,ackerely,fox all locals all signed so that sort of dispells that, as for rooney not tittle tattle that's from the man himself town tried to sign him,and there was a few on here said town should try to sign him

Calvert, Fox, cullnean, Ackerley and Fox. I bet the whole of the Championship are quaking in their boots B)

Seems to be confirmation now that Lupton just needs gym strengthening work and no op . Great news for him and us, as we all said we want to see him fully revved up from an offseason . Hope his luck is changing and he hits the ground running , class is permanent.

David, peter was given bad advice from the first specialist he seen saying he needed an op. However second opinion has said he doesn't n if the first one had any idea what he was talking about peter would of been fit now n possibly playing for wales. Just need lots of physio n strengthening up. Just be fine come start of season.

Yep it's been confusing looking in , and for him to no doubt ,but we can park it all and wish the lad well . He's had bad luck but a class player will always want to get out there and prove it after a setback . That's what we'll see , coz he is one . He needs a break so hopefully it's plain sailing from now . Can't judge him on last year I'm convinced of that .

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

We did however bear you five times, or does that not count? While a couple of the defeats at the end of the season which stopped us winning the league were caused by a horrendous imjury list. Still we'll see next season who will be the strongest, you keep thinking you are close to us if it makes you feel better.

Not quite......... you forgot to take into account the Ike Southward match and the playoff match as well... which means we won 3 more games than you against opposition from Championship One. :lol:

Haven fans claims of "only" losing one more match than Town is just Haven fans trying to make their season look good when the reality is they were pretty poor compared to Donny, Barrow and Town.

I think the main difference between the sides is Town had a great season & Haven had a ###### season (according to their fans). Town were in it to the end with an horrendous injury list spoiling what could have been an outstanding season, Haven were never in it from the start. One win in the end, but they were always playing catch up. The matches between our teams this year tells the story.
