“This is an incredible end to the season with so much at stake. The outcome from the game will have so much of an impact to either winning the league, and with-it automatic promotion, or achieving the highest placed play-off position that could result in hugely beneficial play-off home games. This has been a great season and I am sure that Neil, his staff, and the players will do everything they can to ensure our ambitions are achieved. I have no doubt that the atmosphere at this game will be very special for everyone connected with Marine.”

“I look forward to welcoming the players, staff, officials and supporters of Workington to the Marine Travel Arena for this crucial end of season game, and to possibly another meet up in the play-offs for promotion at the end of April.”
