  1. Declan O’Donnell (Workington) – Grade A Punching – 0 Match Penalty Notice Thankfully the Panel have seen this for what it was and luckily we should have Dec available this weekend. It was never a Red Card offence and only came about due to the weak Refereeing we witnessed last week.
  2. Hope we get a chance to see him strut his stuff before the end of the season and not just a cameo role off the Bench. Dean was a legend from my era and hopefully Blaine writes himself into our history the same way. Welcome to Town Blaine !!

  4. Really enjoyed the BP experience and the atmosphere at the last game was great and overall the attendance for the 3 games was just shy of 3000 which is very good. However I am happy to return back to DP and looking forward to seeing the new Pitch and having a decent PA system again.
  5. Very petty stance to take as Danny Grainger is very impressed with the playing surface at DP and wants his team to play Football on a good surface.If BP is not ready then to switch the 1st home game could be financially a big loss to the Club as I am sure you would get a big crowd at DP and the Sponsors facilities are far superior.A good few Town fans I know have said they would attend and the Novelty of Reds playing there might pull in quite a few of the floating fans that we usually see for Cup Games.
  6. A massive personality and great Clubman who will be sorely missed. I have known Brian for over 30 years having worked with him at British Steel and him also refereeing local Football. Great tribute on the Twitter account from Jamie Doran that just shows what he meant to the players. R.I.P Brian
  7. Keep up the good work and it was great to see so many of those kids singing their heads off in the Town end. Well that game had everything for me,yes it wasn't pretty but we stood up really well with lack of rotation off the bench and also being down to 12 men and I would say we finished the game stronger and fitter than London. The officials were a joke and player safety really worries me when you get clowns like that allowing heads shots to go unpunished and the Red for Declan just summed it up. I thought Declan had a good game and his try was genius and he just gives 100% for the cause and I also think Jonathan Walsh had his best game for the club today doing well in defence and taking quite a bit of ball in to help spell our forwards off. 810 was an excellent crowd considering recent performances and all the other distractions today so hopefully push it up a bit more next week for the Keighley game.
  8. I will be there and dragging my Dad along again but think the crowd will be quite low. If we turn up with the right attitude I expect a win but recent effort levels will see a defeat. What a shame after all the hard work to Break the 1000 barrier we put in 3 Poor performances that will see that figure plummet.
  9. Town have a very long lease on DP so if any is going to be sold I would imagine it being BP. If we have to do one up I personally think DP is the best option as it has a much larger footprint with plenty of space for parking along with the Offices and Shop and larger capacity as it stands and if the old scoreboard end was developed it would have a larger capacity than the new stadium would have provided.
  10. When Chris first came and started getting numbers back to training we could all see the Improvement and things were looking positive. However we are now as bad as I can remember for quite a while and we can all see fitness levels of some players are not where they should be and ball retention is terrible but it is the sheer cluelessness we show with ball in hand which to me shows we are not training together as a squad. Interesting thought, do Whitehaven have the same problem as they seem to be going really well this season with a small squad or is it just our players who think they don't need to train. another worry is the fact that 2 coaches have now highlighted the problem so will a change of Coach next season actually make any difference.It will be interesting to see what attitude the players show this Sunday against Skolars.
  11. Well after a couple of poor performances we need to get a response from the team this weekend and try and get back to winning ways before 2 Home Games. Will Chris stick with the players and demand a big improvement or will he drop a few ? The biggest problem he faces is lack of numbers to choose from and I think many players realise this hence they know there position is safe however badly they play. After getting over the 1000 mark against Oldham it will be a crying shame if all the good PR work falters due to team attitude and crowds dwindle back down to the 600/700 mark.
  12. Spot on DavidM all that money spent as it was alleged it was not viable to get the new Safety Certificate for Borough Park. The only Good thing is we should have a decent new playing surface at Derwent Park and be a bit closer to the action. I only hope the council plan is not to just spend money on both Stadia as that would really just be polishing a ###### and neither Club would see much improvement in Facilities.
  13. Well so much for the £150,000 it was going to cost after failing the Safety Certificate.
  14. Good Question but I honestly do not know the answer to that. But as said by Route66 the Benefits are also there to help stem the Obesity crisis this County is facing and getting young people interested in exercise and Sport.
  15. Despite what Jenkinson is saying this will leave West Cumbria in the dark ages as by the time they decide what they would like to do I fear at least one of our clubs may not be here to see it. These are the same people who were against the Sports Centre being Built but look at the success that has been. Our Independent Councillors would rather have wasted Millions patching up a facilty at Moorclose that was well passed it's sell by date and even more of the Beaten track for anyone living outside of that area. Last time I checked the New Centre had over 8,000 paying members there are always lot's of youngsters using it when I am there and it is also now becoming very popular with the NHS providing low cost rehab for everything from Stroke and Heart to Injuries. I know as I have been one of the People to benefit from this through my Physio.
