  2. Magic Night Out

    https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/general/12-reasons-why-to-join-out-magic-night-out/ If your around Newcastle on Friday night make sure you get down to Kingston Park and join over 3,000 Rugby League fans and have a Magic Night Out

  4. Newcastle Thunder Academy Development Day - Cumbria

    The club has a foundation that does schools coaching but nothing to do with the academy we run
  5. Newcastle Thunder Academy Development Day - Cumbria

    That’s incorrect, it’s got nothing to do with the Newcastle foundation, as a cat 2 academy that comes with 50k funding only, we match that with 50k of our own investment cat 1 acadmies get double
  6. Newcastle Thunder Academy Development Day - Cumbria

    It’s not that the RFL won’t let them run an academy, every club could put an application in to bid for one of the cat 1 or 2 academy, we were successful. Any team can run a cat 3 academy similar to what barrow and I believe either Workington or Whitehaven are doing with lakes college. there was curtain criteria that you had to meet to get one of the cat 1/2 licenses and we met It. And have ran the academy for 3 years now with development programmes from u12 up and a genuine player pathway playing in a super league structure. We currently have players travel up from Ripon for scholarship training so travelling from Cumbria would be similar, we can’t wait to give the local Cumbrians an opportunity to progress in our environment
  7. Magic Weekend

    So far just over 2,200 tickets have been sold for the Friday night game, this doesn’t include the tickets Bradford are selling from their ticket office We hope to break the 3,000 by Wednesday next week if anyone is around for the weekend, some down to Kingston Park on the Friday, it’s a cracking night
