Player of the year for me has to be Shacks, he's played on in great form with knackered knees almost every game. If he'd been here longer Mr Sammut would have took it as the difference he's made has been unbelievable, closely followed by Brett Carter as his form in the super 8's has been awesome, it's just a pity Phil didn't trust him earlier in the season. Also gotta mention Elliott since he came back from a potentially career ending injury too. But the season is 30 games long and for that reason Shacks is the man.
Highlights of the season has to be the Sammut swallow dive in front of the Kells end and the Sammut & Carter try celebrations against the Jam, rubbing it in at it's best!
Unluckiest has to be Latu & Kurt who couldn't have had worse luck with injuries after coming to the other side of the world. Gotta feel for them both.
He's been with us a long time so will hopefully have the same affection for the club, his teammates, and us supporters as we do for him and sign a new deal.
But if he decides his future is elsewhere there ain't much that can be done. He will no doubt get everyone's thanks and best wishes as he's been fantastic for us.
BUT if he signs for the Jambo's his song will no doubt be changed to a more abusive version, and as Haven only have 2 songs he can't expect the same affection down the road.
Wait and see before we make any judgment on the lad as he hasn't officially committed one way or another yet, but it's only because we think so much of him that it's caused such a storm.
I heard barrow was halving some players money for next year and some are quitting. Surely Brett has shown how good he is.
Most Haven fans are saying Elliott has already gone for the cash. A done deal. On one hand if it's true I can understand why financially if the money is that good, but on the other it's bemusing why he would turn his back on us after everything, and the state of Haven over the last few years. Like coming home and finding your dad with your wife! Sick to the pit of your stomach and not sure who to punch first.
But I'm sure if it is true we have a ready made replacement in Sam.
Don't do it Elliott!!
I'm sure Elliott won't hold anyone to ransom. The lad has to look after himself financially, but all Town fans would be gutted if he signed for the Jambo's. I can't see why he would want to sign for a club who has a different coach every 18-24 months with an erratic recruitment policy and a decent turnover of players.
Wait and see what happens.
to be fair keith i reckon whoever finishes 4th be it haven or town stand a great chance of winning it but at the end of the day its just a losers trophy if you know what i mean nut it would still be nice to win
Haven winning something? Are you on Bombers Lambrini??
I think people will agree that the board is having a good go at marketing our home games. Kids for a quid, dual ticket offer, Facebook, Twitter and now banners appearing around town.
A great effort, I hope the rewards are a decent increase in the gate.
I asked for Sammut to be signed after week one of this season....
I also stated a local settled side was far better than DR ....
I ALSO STATED to stay up we needed to sign
Hulme / Sammut and stozak ....
Massive turn around for the club and it's good for us fans ... But this season is wasted after being so poor for so long when all we needed was 1 thing !!!
Do you have proof of such wild claims lol?
I think if we sign Greg Inglis and Billy Slater for next season we will score more tries than we did this season and finish in a higher league position, I know you all think I'm mad but I'm gonna stick my neck out on this one...
I have a cunning plan.
The club should put a finders fee request into the ECB because if we had never employed Ged Stokes, Ben would never have played for Cockermouth, Durham or England and therefore England wouldn't have won the ashes. So in short England won the ashes directly because of Workington Town.
We can then use this money to sign Jarrod ( ironically an Aussie) up for next year.
Genius even if I do say so myself!
