  1. I think you’ll find that under local authority legislation they have to use an independent valuer and can’t just think of a figure. What value do you put on a very short lease on a piece of land that probably can’t be used for any other purpose and probably can’t be sub let, let alone sold. I don’t know any details of the lease but would be amazed if it didn’t contain all manner of restrictions which would make it all but worthless to anyone except the Reds.
  2. My understanding is that Town will be granted use of Derwent Park until such time as the stadium is built and that means as long as it takes if the plans fall through. The Reds will play at Derwent Park while it’s still there. Reds have a very short lease I believe, so not worth as much as Town. I would imagine that both leases are worth a lot less than people might think as I’ll bet they have all sorts of clauses limiting what can and cannot be done with the land. A bit more scaremongering perhaps!
  3. Would anyone wanting to travel with The Travellers Rest Supporters please make sure that they contact one of the committee members as we are not taking any bookings through anyone else, we need to ensure that we are not double booking and that we do not have to turn anyone away next Friday.
  4. Confirmed on rugby league website that the Siddal game is to be played this Sunday, 17th March at Derwent Park.
  5. Maybe we should at least wait until the disciplinary before we jump in. Just because he’s been charged doesn’t mean that he’ll get 3 matches, although knowing the RFL once you’re charged you’re presumed guilty.
  6. Should be a great night Nero, as always. I’ll bet Hock has some tales to tell! Looking forward to it already, I know it’s not the cheapest of events but worth every penny and one not to be missed. Given the awful news from the club re. Sunday night, I hope that there’s a good turnout and it raises as much cash for the club as possible.
  7. It’s that time of year again folks, the start of the season is almost upon us and as usual we have our AGM and members evening arranged. As usual it will be in The Travellers Rest (where else!) and this year it’s on Monday 12th February; the AGM starts at 7:00pm for current members followed by the members evening from 7:30 onwards. We hope that there will be players and representatives from Workington Town RLFC in attendance, there will as usual be a fun quiz and competitions to keep you entertained. As always we will be providing transport to away games, with prices still to be agreed. Everyone is welcome to attend, members old and new, so come along if you can and please pass the message on to anyone who may be interested. We look forward to seeing you on the 12th February for an enjoyable evening. Allan Lamb
  8. Don’t think there’ll be any squad numbers this year, the RFL now allow league one teams to revert to the old 1-17 system.
  9. Hopefully a few Town fans will call in for the crack if nothing else, it'll be much better if we can get even a little bit of cash out of their pockets of course!
  10. It's that time of year and The Travellers Rest TOWN Supporters Club are again organising their annual Sportsman's Dinner. This year our Guest Speakers will be Mr Leon Pryce and Mr Ben Flower, who will be supported on the night by our regular Master of Ceremonies Mr Howard Nicholson. Leon Pryce: An English professional rugby league player, who has represented both Great Britain and England internationally as a stand-off. He began his career at Bradford Bull in 1998, where he won a number of honours including the Super League Grand Final three times, the Harry Sunderland award for Man of the Match in 2003, and also two World Club Challenge victories. He moved to St Helens in 2006 where he continued his winning ways with victories in the Challenge Cup Finals in 2006, 2007 (when he was joint winner of the Lance Todd Trophy) & 2008, also winning the Super League Grand Final in 2006 and the World Club Challenge in 2007. He also played club rugby for Catalan Dragons and Hull F.C. before returning to Bradford Bulls in 2017. Ben Flower: A Rugby League forward who plays for Wigan and the Wales national rugby league team. Initially played rugby union for Wales at under 18, under 19 and under 21 level. Signed for the Crusaders Rugby League club in 2007, playing in the colts before becoming a regular in the first team in 2008. He played for Crusaders in their first Super League season in 2009 and remained with them until 2011 when he signed for Wigan, where he established himself as a first-choice player and was a member of the team that won the 2013 Challenge Cup and 2013 Super League Grand Final. He has also represented Wales on 16 occasions. . Two outstanding Rugby League professionals, with many stories to tell. This is always an excellent evening’s entertainment and ideal corporate event and we hope you are able to join us this year. Tables will be organised for parties of 8/10/12, but individual requirements can be catered for. This years event will be held on Friday 20th October, at the Washington Central Hotel Workington, for which the cost will again be £28 per head.

  11. Andrew Beattie or Paul Farrel at Cumbria Lakers would probably be the people to get in touch with. The have a facebook page so I would message them through that.
  12. So you're not talking about salary cap at all, but financial sustainability. You really should get a grip before you accuse others for not not being "with you" Still shouldn't have expected any greater clarity from someone with such a grip upon the English language. I rest my case!
  13. Thanks for explaining that. Anyone know which, if any, planet that this makes sense on?
  14. Now if this guy really does believe that Haven have spent £1.825 million on players he's either more deluded than we could ever imagine or our neighbours have bigger money worries than anyone could imagine. I wonder which one it is?
  15. The start of the season is almost upon us and as usual we will be holding our annual AGM and members evening in The Travellers Rest. The AGM will be held next Wednesday at 7:00pm with our members evening following at around 7:30, we hope to have representatives from Workington Town RLFC, there will be the usual quiz and other entertainments. This is our 23rd year of operation, having started in 1994, as always we are looking to increase our membership so please pass this on to anyone who you think may be interested. Looking forward to an enjoyable evening and hope to see as many members, new and old, as possible. Allan Lamb
