Four new directors have come on board at Whitehaven RLFC with the aim of helping the club reach its full potential.

Player James Robinson, Mark Stamper, and Tony Cole have all joined the Whitehaven board alongside Gary Eilbeck, who stepped forward recently.

The quartet have all expressed a desire to help shoulder the burden on chief executive Barry Richardson, as well as furthering the club’s ambitions.

“I have been in the game for a long time and I came to Whitehaven for a fresh start in my rugby career but I am thinking about retiring at the end of the season and would like to continue working behind the scenes,” said Robinson, who joined Haven from close neighbours Workington Town in the close season.

“There are a lot of good people here and Barry is one of them and I want to see support around him.

“I have enjoyed the last 12 months and I have come on board to support Barry and in appreciation of what he does for the club.”

Robinson is joined by Capita’s head of nuclear Tony Cole, who is hoping to bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the board.

He said: “I have benefited from regular trips to the sponsors lounge and been a season ticket holder in the past so I thought it was time to give something back to the club.

“I want to bring some fresh thoughts and ideas on how to promote the club and take it to where it should be, whilst remembering what it is all about, the people who walk through the gates. Hopefully we can give something back to the fans.”

Mark Stamper, of Stamper Lloyd Bathrooms and Kitchens, echoed his fellow new board members’ thoughts, adding: “I am a local lad and want to see the club move forward and progress to where they deserve to be.”

Lifelong supporter and sponsor Gary Eilbeck, of Eilbeck Motors, came on board back in May and is delighted to be joined by more new faces.
