Fans attending Castleford Tigers Supporters Club’s stadium tour were given an enjoyable evening.

The event started with a question and answer with chief executive Steve Gill and commercial director Mark Grattan.

Subjects covered included player injuries, player welfare, salary cap, new signings, marquee player rule, club finances, A team rugby, dual registration, the Easter fixtures, the new ground, Wheldon Road ground, safety work and ground improvements, drinks licence and pricing and Thursday night rugby.

The tour then took place with everyone splitting into two groups. Areas visited were the VP lounge, players review area, coaches room, wrestling room, the gym, TV gantry, players tunnel, changing rooms and medical rooms.

Supporters then returned to the VP lounge and thanked Steve, Mark and groundsman Stuart Vause for the tour.

“The last tour took place in June 2013 and we were very happy to see the club’s facilities in a lot better shape,” said CTSC secretary Paul Burns-Williamson.

“A lot of hard work and investment has taken place since 2013 to make it a far better environment for all players and staff at the club.

“It was also good to see our CTSC donations making a difference from the cold spas, wrestling room, medical equipment, to equipment in the gym.

“We made £74 on the night and also sold hospitality raffle tickets for the Warrington game. We will announce the winner in July.”

The next CTSC event is an under 19s and youth development evening on Tuesday, June 14.
