Danny Gardiner RIP

19 January 2015 - 05:26 PM

It was in today's League Weekly that former Town player Danny Gardiner had passed away.    He played 125 games for Town from 1959 t0 1966 and scored 6 tries and 1 goal.    Condolences to his family.    RIP Danny. 

Tommy Thompson RIP

05 January 2015 - 01:55 PM

Sad news that former Town player Tommy Thompson passed away this morning.    Tommy was signed in 1968 to replace Paul Charlton who had gone to Salford.  He played for Town from 1969 to 1976 in 130 games scoring 15 tries and 2 goals.   


The Whitehaven News did a nice article about him some time ago - http://www.whitehave...r-born-1.385801#


Condolences to his family at this sad time. 

DR for 2015 season

22 December 2014 - 12:49 PM

Some details of how DR will work in the 2015 season have been released by the RFL.


Clubs will be allowed 5 DR players PLUS 1 loan player in their matchday 17.


After 23 games when the leagues split in to 3 groups of 8, the SL club and the Championship club will decide which club the DR player has to be assigned to for the remainder of the season, i.e. the 7 play-off games and any finals, etc.    Players will still have to have played in 3 games for the Championship club before the split in order to play in any others.

League 1 Cup Final

20 November 2014 - 08:05 PM

The League 1 Cup Final is to be played as the first match of the Championship Summer Bash at Blackpool on 23rd May 2014 and the second match is Town versus Haven.    It would be great if the Raiders made the Final and we could make it right good Cumbria day out at the seaside.

Blackpool Summer Bash

18 November 2014 - 02:58 PM

The fixtures for the Blackpool Summer Bash are being announced on Thursday (20th) and I think most people are expecting us to be playing Haven on the Sunday.    There could be some good games on both days with several derby matches - ours, Batley v Rams, Donny v Eagles, Bulls v Fax, plus maybe Fev v Leigh and Hunslet v Broncos.     Is that the best list of fixtures?
