As part of the club’s ongoing work to celebrate their strong links with the Community game in West Cumbria, Workington Town have introduced a new initiative called the Workington Town Community Club Takeover.

As part of this new initiative, Maryport have accepted their first invitation and players of all ages will proudly don their club colours, get free entry to this Sunday’s game against Newcastle Thunder, enjoy their own reserved area to watch the match, play in a curtain raiser and at half-time and unveil the club crest flags of both sides.

Maryport have, this season, worked hard to re-enter the CARLA league open age in a positive move for Rugby League in our area.

The club has always been a strong source of players for the semi-professional game and in recent years have produced the likes of current Town prop Stevie Scholey, who has been with his old club this week taking training sessions with the kids.

The club are hoping that all clubs in their area will take part in the Takeover days over this season.

The invitation extends to all the local clubs in the area and if you would like to book your club in for a club takeover, email: or
