Whitehaven announce partnership
Thursday 11th October 2012
Whitehaven and St Helens today announced a dual registration deal
Barry Richardson from Whitehaven added: "This is mutually beneficial with Whitehaven being able to call upon quality players from St Helens on a weekly basis and the two clubs to develop a strong and lasting relationship with an increased presence in West Cumbria through both clubs' community programmes and through building upon the excellent relationship over the last few years that has been built up between St Helens and Dave Woods the new Whitehaven Coach.
"This will also give the opportunity for the two clubs to attract top local Cumbrian players who could be available to play initially for St Helens Under 19s or Whitehaven's first team and hopefully to progress longer term through to the Saints first team or part of a strong Whitehaven team established in the Championship." Mike Rush General Manager of St Helens said we are delighted to be working together and can see player movements between the two clubs in both directions in the future,
