Whitehaven RL cheered by season ticket increase

Whitehaven have seen a 75 per cent rise in season ticket sales for the new campaign.

The club have invested heavily in building a squad designed to win promotion to the Championship, and that has been reflected in increased interest from fans.

Under 100 season ticket sales were sold last year, for Haven’s first year in the third tier, but that has now rocketed to 175.

“It’s an excellent number for Championship One and a fantastic achievement,” said chief executive Barry Richardson.

“There’s a lot of enthusiasm about the town and the club, and we really appreciate fans getting behind us with better season ticket sales. It’s good to see them show that commitment.”

The club lotteries are also turning a rising profit – around £35,000 in 12 months after losing money when the current board took over – and replica shirt sales are also booming.

Richardson added: “Director Paul Nelson has done really well with merchandising, and we have sold over 300 replicas. He also did a good job with the design, working closely with O’Neills. We really appreciate the support of Billy Rudd in allowing us to sell merchandise from his shop in town.”

Playmaker Carl Rudd has recovered after being taken off in the second-half at Derwent Park suffering from an eyesight problem.



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
