Richardson delight as three Whitehaven players in team of week

Whitehaven chief executive Barry Richardson admitted that the inclusion of three players in the Championship team of the week was the icing on the cake following the 24-22 victory against reigning champions Sheffield Eagles on Sunday.

Tom Carr, Jessie Joe Parker and Jordan Hand were named in the team, and Richardson said: “There were a lot of good performances and it was difficult to pick three players out.

“But they really deserved to be in the Team of the Week. Lee Doran and Lee Mitchell were also outstanding.

“It was a really good display allround and the players showed real character.

“It was our fourth win in five games and came off the back of a bad result against North Wales Crusaders. The players have shown great commitment.”

Haven were beaten 34-0 at home to North Wales before going on the road to beat Batley Bulldogs 30-10.

They then beat Doncaster 29-20 at home, and Swinton 22-18 after being 16-4 down at the interval. A 50-14 reversal at Featherstone was followed by the victory against Sheffield on Sunday.

“It’s been a big plus for the fans because the last few home games have been very exciting,” added the Haven chief.

Haven will be continuing one of their children’s offers that have proved very successful in recent weeks.

The number of youngsters attending games has gone up by 300 per cent and, on Tuesday when Haven entertain Keighley Cougars, Under-16s will gain entry for £2 and receive a voucher for a MacDonalds meal which can be used after the game or up until 5pm the next day.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
