I'm sure the Worky players will share around £200K between them, its just who gets what


25 squad players divided into £200K averages £8000 each contract money plus they get playing money, J S wouldn't get out of bed for that kind of money, J S alone was reported to be on £1500 a match last season.

Top players will be on more than £8000 and junior players on far less, however the club has a salary cap to keep within.

Correct decision, no doubt the match could have been played, but at the expence of the pitch taking weeks or month to recover, a friendly match against Thunder just not worth it.

"Keith T" you may be correct that Solway closed in 1983, "however" Solway was not producing coal commercially for a great number of years it existed as a Training facility with school leavers gaining underground experience of coal mining for several months before being placed in mines that were producing commercially.

Solway was also used to train Pit deputies, Overmen, Shot Firers and Ventilation workers.


Miners were being transferred from Solway to Whitehaven over many years as it decreased commercial coal production and was developed into a Training Mine.
