Great to see that we now have a Cas fan in charge of the England cricket team.

Good luck to him and brilliant that the ECB didn’t bring in a foreign coach.

I believe he played amateur RL for Kippax as well as cricket for Cas.

It is good yes. Let’s hope he mentions our name in relevant sporting circles; new stadium etc. He’ll be rubbing shoulders with some VIP’s nowadays.

On a personal level I know him having used to knock about with a core group of players back in 02. He was close to Lynchy and M. smith and came out with us to wakefield with lennon and monkey etc etc. I thought he was a bit of a sly dog but good value for the crack. He was quite a naughty boy too ha ha...

Went to school with Spoons, was always a sports talent, helped by being massive at 13!
Same school produced a few good sports people in our year and thereabouts - Twins - O'Neils and Keedy's went on and did well in cricket. Chris Chew around Rugby League for years round Cas.

Nothing to do with Cas mind, but well done him, very difficult job to do!

It absolutely will be of no harm him being a cas fan and liaising with all kinds of sponsors and the like in such a high profile job.
Might be worth JW befriending.

Would be interesting to know how many other celebrities are Cas supporters and who they are?
