Castleford Tigers women don't have to fund pre-season for the first time thanks to supporters
Rugby league side Castleford Tigers have not had to self-fund their pre-season for the first time thanks to supporters
For the past few years the team have headed to the Yorkshire Dales to prepare for the season ahead, something the players had to pay for themselves.
This year the Castleford Tigers Supporters Club donated £1,000 towards the pre-season camp and two of the club's legends, Rhiannion Marshall and Sammy Watts, attended an event to thank the fans for their generosity.
Marshall said: "We massively appreciate what they do for us and it’s important that we connect with them.”
Watts added: "Considering they’re donating to us and sponsoring us for the first time this year, it’s good to come down and show just how much we appreciate what they do for us.”
She said: “I think we had the top attendance in Women’s Super League and I think especially halfway through the season they gave us that kick. Just to think we’ve got a lot of people behind us here we need to keep working hard.”
