Pont and Cas Express

Recommended Posts

I’ve never bought a paper for ten years as I seek my info through the internet .Whilst waiting for my hair cutting in O Rileys Barbers ( recommend it ) I read the p&Cas express and was pleased to see that it covered both Fev and Cas in equal measures which was totally biasedly different ten years ago.Well done to our local journalists and might consider buying it from now on.

As I have said before my old Mum bless her used to send me the Express through to Egypt when I was on active service so I could keep up with the Rovers games and Information. That was in the 1950's and I still get it weekly. I also go to the obituary column as quite a few friend are passing away for funeral details. Local details are in local papers and quite a bit of information is not available elsewhere. I agree about the Wakefield Express, some cover there for their locals on Fev should be included.

I agree. In an age when reproducing others' content seems to be more and more the norm, it has been good to see some original content on Rovers returning to the P & CE.

The Normanton edition of the Wakefield Express doesn't even cover Cas games, when Normy has just as many Cas fans as Wakey. I think the reason is they hope they will buy the Pont & Cas as well. In today's day and age when you can pick up most of the news off the web page I don't think it's going to happen?

One point of interest, do the Hemsworth and South Elmsall Express feature Fev at all? When Pat Cluskey came as CEO a few years ago we discussed this and he said he would explore promoting the club more to the South of Ackworth. Don't know if any progress has been made though?

It's good to know that the Ponte and Cas still has decent coverage of Fev. My memories of reading it are 30 years ago as a kid, at which point it seemed fairly balanced between the two local clubs. 

My current local rag is the Halifax Courier. Fev unsurprisingly don't get much of a mention, but neither do Fax compared to that giant of sport, Halifax Town.

Chisholm fulsome in his praise of Ryan Carr and says “The mood in camp is outstanding. I haven’t been in a better camp in a long time” .
