Workington Comets speedway team owner set to withdraw cash support
Last updated at 11:03, Tuesday, 18 September 2012
Workington Comets owner Keith Denham is ready to pull the plug on the Derwent Park club after five years in charge.
Have your say
Regarding costs,Keith Denham has always stated that he was never in it to make money (he also isn't in it to lose money).
IF suffficient fans attended he always said he would bring the entry cost down, but he can't do that unless the stay away fans show that they will support the club. This weekend could prove that!
The vast majority of MAN UTD fans do not agree with some of the actions of their owners, but thousands still turn up every week to support the club.
Get behind the club and show what support we could have before it's to late.
Give Keith Denham the option to reduce admission the following week, lets see you all turn up Saturday
I am very sorry but the rugby club would not be running now if speedway had not returned in 1999 , i know that and the people that run Workington Town know that . Very happy to see Town doing well . Comets are doing very well .But i do think is the end of the Comets Comets fan turn 2 Now i think it will bet the end of the Rugby club thay will never get back to the teams from the 50s 60s 70s , as Sky wont be there for them ( LOOK AT BRADFORD) as Sky wont be there for Tne Comets . I do not go to see the Town but i have there Draw Tickets and had two wins But if the Comets go my ticket moneys go ,. Very Sad Time s After the Comets have gone , Iwill gine 3 years and Tseco will be at D/P ..
Les Hall - the burger vans are outside caterers from keswick and have nothing to do with workington rugby league and as for the bar it isn't a necessity to the speedway so your comment just seems a bit irrelevant the article!
