Castleford’s pre-season match against Bradford Bulls at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle tomorrow (Sunday) will go ahead despite wind damage to the stadium’s Princess Street stand.

Overnight damage to the Princess Street stand has forced its closure for tomorrow’s Andy Lynch testimonial game (2.30pm kick-off).

Bradford fans are being advised to use Railway end, with Castleford supporters asked to use the Wheldon Road end.

There will be no turnstiles open on Princess Street and fans are reminded to get to the game early to ensure entry.

The Tigers have thanked all fans who have offered to help clear the damage but the club now has a professional team onsite and request that fans don’t come down to the stadium today (Saturday).
