Cas Statement


Recommended Posts


It is particularly gloomy in Sunny Cas atm. Come the glorious day a small town club might be expendable but until that happens I'm thinking Cas are only guilty of being not overly good and generally do add to the competition. Let's see what happens. 

TESTICULI AD  BREXITAM.

C@s should have moved from down t'lane to Glasshoughton when they had the opportunity to build on the pit site. Instead someone else built a snowdome and a great opportunity was missed. Writing's been on the wall for years.

Pray tell how they would have funded that move?

After the pit closures there was money galore being shovelled at folk to cover up for how the govt decimated the mines. There was an open public meeting held at the Leeds road wmc Glasshoughton where local councillor Hilda, RIP, (sorry can't remember her surname as it was a long time ago) openly spoke of grants being available for the taking.

Those type of grants usually needed a matching amount being put in by the club , so just the 6/8/10 million to find first , easy peasey

Total surprise to read all that. No idea it was b7bbling under the surface.

Heard about Milner move to Giants & it now seems there's a potential lifeline for Wakefield here.

That win will come & dpends how many more...

You honestly think they wouldn't have moved if enough money had been available? The thing about grants is that you usually need to provide some finance yourselves as Gubby states. Cas have been talking about moving from WR since the mid 70s and every 'plan' has so far failed because of lack of money, particularly the Club's.

First credit for the club officials for being up front with their supporters.

Castleford lies in one of the richest veins of Rugby League, in terms of passion, participation and supporters.

I have admired how perhaps cheekily they prioritized the on rather than off field. 

Fearless props as opposed to fearful pissoirs.

But IMG and a wreck of a ground opens an immediate challenge.

I wish RL could collectively act to support facility renovation. Have a grand fund for clubs to call on.

If anything Cas fans deserve a better ground, if not running water.

Have faith. Form is temporary.
