Well there go's my Xmas wish up the spout,nothing in the papers again but, there is a big spread about Houghton coaching the kids at Whitehaven.I thought it was to much to ask for, but I tried and feel really let down having to wait until January for our supposedly 4or5 players to come in,I know the board will be working hard to get the right people in but I am ###### off with the lack of content to the the news&star.Has for us town fans it is bloody hard to read the Evening star every night when all we get is whats going on at Whitehaven,i wouldn't bloody mind if they said a lot of piffle but at least that they were saying something,a good PR man would be saying this and that about who town were looking at or interested in but we get sweet FA,SURELY there must be something just to give us town fans to get EXITED about,but,it seems like they just want to keep there cards close to their chests and hope we all come down on opening day in the thousands,I always say some news is better than no news and the fans from old who came in their thousands to support the world cup will be waiting with baited breath about whats going on at DP in anticipation of new signings coming in,I believe their anticipation will be wilting right now because of no news from the club and I myself would be saying"well if they cannot be bothered to let us fans know whats going on,why should I be bothered to go down to DP if they cannot be bothered to tell us anything,anything",that's all we want,some news please.Merry xmas to all town fans old AND new and hopefully a very Happy New Year especially in January hahahahahaha. PS.Merry Xmas to the B.O.D. and a Happy New Year to you all,and I know I might be a boring #### and I know you work hard for the club,but ,I work hard has a town fan trying to get people to come down to DP.

It doesn't have to be about signings to get some news in the papers after all Haven seem to do very well with scoops like JJP's haircut and now a Haven player to coach kids, whoever would have thought that!!!!
In todays T & S the Reds had the main story on the front page, plus three quarters of the back page and half of the inside back page. Even the Comets had twice as much as us on the back page plus a blog on the inside. We had a couple of paragraphs at the bottom corner of the back page. I have in the past complained to the Editor and it always comes back that they can only publish what they get told. They have in the past made excuses about it being the close season for Town but that doesn't seem to apply for the Comets or the Reds when it's their close season
As troutmaster says most of the impetus from the World Cup has been lost with many people who took an interest in the matches, which is a shame.
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.

I'll know more for definite when I get back for Xmas but I think those games will live long in the memory.

I'm not so sure your right Keith, apparently season ticket sales are well ahead of last year with quite a few from outside of allerdale. People need to take a step back and realise our board us made up of people with real jobs doing the best they can in there own spare time for nothing more than the love of our club. Cut them some slack.
I agree, most in not all of the board would have been involved in the biggest sporting event the area has just held, and just months after the season ended and having family's and jobs to see to, I'm sure if a few people have some spare time on their hands the club would love the help.
