Seems a bit over-stated, given the current situation. Your new owners might as well be in Austria fur all the good they're doing you. Seems like the take,-over needs talking over!

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11527058/officers.  Good luck to all at keighley cougars from a swinton lions fan,  the rfl need to get a grip of the game they are spouting with glee about expanding the game whilst the heartland clubs are dying on their backside.  come on rfl get a grip and support the heartland clubs and not just toronto and london/bradford bulls.  As ffor keighley cougars plight i would suggest the fans get together and form a trust to take over the club so its run by the fans for the fans/ local community.

A bunch of fans getting together is not the answer. It needs local business people with backing from the RL to save the club, with support from the fans. The RL will help if they see that support. If they don't, who can blame them for pulling out? Good luck Cougars.

Your town either wants a club or it doesn't.
