  1. Introducing the Rob Burrow fund raising game. With confirmed guest of honour Rob Burrow. Goole Viking’s vs the previously Rob Burrow coached Ackworth Jaguars at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds, Goole. Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Rob Burrow fund. Please come along and show your support. **Mandatory donation on the gate**
  2. Help Rugby League grow in Goole, get involved with our ambitious club as we prepare to grow! Please share with any friends/family who may be interested.
  3. Yes we have ambitions. With our ground and facilities there’s no reason why we can’t. It has however got to be done in a measured way, with strong foundations from the bottom up. It’s also key that we remain a community club that has the best interests of Goole at heart.
  4. Hello mate. Very encouraging first season. 45 lads signed on, managed to play 3 ‘b’ team games this season, hopefully have two open age sides next year. Will need another 15-20 to sign on to make that viable. Lowest attendance we had 130 highest 320, averaging around 185. This amounts to a success for me and exceeds expectations. The social media guys do a cracking job, very fortunate to have them. If you’re free this Saturday pop down. If not, then come pay us a visit next season!
  5. To celebrate the end of the our first year in existence, the Goole Vikings are holding a family fun day at our home ground, the Victoria Pleasure Grounds in Goole. The day will consist of: -The launch of our first junior sides in conjunction with Hull FC foundation. -Round robin junior tournaments -Children’s entertainment (bouncy castles, face painting, sumo suits) -Visits from Ronnie the Rhino and other Rugby League figures -Various food & drink stalls -Beer tents -First XIII final game of the season Vs Stanningley. If you’re at a loose end, please come down and support the continued existence and growth of Rugby League in Goole. #UTV
  6. Approx 145. In fairness they’ve had 3 or 4 seasons finishing in relegation zones, so that hasn’t helped their figures
  7. East Riding council own the ground. Our landlords however are Goole AFC.
  8. Make yourself known next time your down mate. We’ll hopefully tidy a few things up and get the win this Saturday. Your not the first to say that about matty Taylor. When their season ends, hopefully we’ll have a few down to give league a try
  9. In future seasons we may charge admission fees. But for now, get as many people through the turnstiles, engage the locals with rugby league and hopefully pick up a few supporters along the way. If they’re in the ground, they may buy a drink or some food! Cheers
  10. The initial attendance was far more than 150, granted that Included a junior team from Beverley braves. The attendance at the full time whistle was round the 180 mark. With a main stand that holds 1,000, 300 can even look lost in it. The free entry model is used to attract people to the ground, stick a £2-3 charge per person and a family may not come down and have a nosey. Financially, We have a corporate box, which was used on Saturday, match ball sponsors, snack bar proceeds, a portion of bar proceeds, raffle, bus stop cards and a donation bucket are all methods we used on Saturday for fundraising. If you have the facilities, it makes it much easier to achieve. Good luck to Goole RUFC, I hope they gain promotion, it’s good for the town!
  11. Very true. We have however made no secret of our intentions to set up a junior section as soon as possible! No juniors=limited future
  12. Glad you enjoyed your visit. The 80 year reference is in regards to a side from Goole playing. You’re correct though, the VPG was used in the early 90’s between Scarborough and hull. I can confirm that a match day programme will be available for every home game this coming season. We look forward to having you down at a game again soon, hopefully our match day experience will only improve.
  13. Selby folded last year, Moorends are a winter side. We’re currently the only summer team within a 15 mile radius, if not more. We bridge the gap between Hull and Cas!
