  1. Thank you! We may be fledgling, but we have big plans going forward. Expansion in the heartlands.
  2. Vikings raise £10,000 for Rob Burrow & MND with charity bike ride Goole Vikings had planned as a club to Ride the 38 miles from The VPG in Goole to Headingley in Leeds, home of Rob Burrow’s former team-Leeds Rhinos. The cycle was due to raise funds in aid of former Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow who was tragically diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in December 2019. Sadly, due to the recent national lockdown this was made impossible and any effort to raise money as a club was curtailed. Covid-19 did not dampen the players spirits however as approximately 25 of the squad individu
  3. You’re correct. Plenty of factors why this is the case. Rugby League has to be made accessible and cheap to participate in, facilities also need to improve. That said, in the YML clubs are popping up in areas where the game hasn’t been played: Us Harrogate fire ants Skipton Knights we need to embrace these teams and develop them. So it’s not all bad news
  4. Clubs wouldn’t turn their nose up at it I’d imagine. It was also a higher figure than we anticipated
  5. Our lowest crowd last year was 120, max 350 and an average approx 180. Entry to our home games is free of charge, with the aim of being a true community club.
  6. Pre covid-19 things were looking very well. 47 senior players signed up, 1st team entered into YML division 2 once again and an ‘A’ team Entered into the YML merit league. Last year we launched a junior section, currently have approx 30 kids signed up, with further plans to expand this going forward.
  7. Highlights from the clubs first season and the first year of Rugby League In Goole for over 80 years! Please subscribe and help continue the growth of Rugby League in Goole!
  8. Maybe have to slow down on the league one talk just yet. However, once we have the foundations of a solid sustainable club with junior teams and a player pathway, we definitely intend to move up the pyramid and out of the Yorkshire men's league. For us, a mid table finish in YML div 2 was a success last season, one that we were hoping to grow on in 2020...….
  9. 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**
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. Approx 145. In fairness they’ve had 3 or 4 seasons finishing in relegation zones, so that hasn’t helped their figures
