Ten years ago the Castleford Tigers Supporters Club restarted after being dormant for many years.
A committee was elected with a constitution agreed and membership of the CTSC grew, slowly at first, then more rapidly as the reputation of events and fund raising provided members with a say in what the raised funds could be used for.
The events provided a means of communication with the club's officials, players and staff, as well has having fun along the way, even in the relegation years.
Our latest donation, pictured below, the Castleford Coat of Arms, takes our total donations to £52,441; a great effort from members past and present - we thank you all.
Castleford Tigers CEO, Steve Gill approached us before Christmas about the sign and we thought it fitting that we should help with the purchase.
We dedicate the sign to everybody who has been in the CTSC, going back to 1926. We know from club records that fund raising by the CTSC in the past helped with ground improvements, signing of players and regular donations were made to the parent club. Our 10 year stint is only part of the Supporters Club proud history and we look forward to the future.
We are hoping to hit the 500 member mark this year and we currently stand at 460. Membership is still available £5 adults, £2.50 under 16s and £10 for a family (two adults, two under 16s). You can join at any CTSC event or on match days in the Supporters Bar at the Railway End.
Our next event, 'The Great Race Night' is on Saturday 12th April, 7.30pm start in the WSTS Suite at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle. Admission is free and is open to all, including non-CTSC members.
