We wish Peter every success in his new role. Our ambitious plans for the club will continue to be developed and received a a a major boost last week with the approval locally of our plans for a new 12,000 capacity stadium in the town. This is tremendously exciting development it will ensure our future as a major force in Super League, will provide state-of-the-art facilities for our loyal supporters and visitors, and will be a major community amenity for the town. The positive stadium decision could also allow us to grow our fan-base, strengthen our Team and develop further our relationships with our commercial partners and sponsors.
