having brought bricks for our new Stadium the club could have my permission to spend the money on improvements at Weldon road i should think there are a number who would do the same, at the ripe old age of 82 there is no way i will see this money used in a new stadium

Hasn't it been said that Radfords had the lads painting Wheldon road?

I see Wakey have the finances in place so once planning permission is in place there revamp will be good to go. This funding i believe also includes a decent sized contribution from the council coffers. We need to be all over this demanding the same from Axiom and the council. Sitting around waiting is not good enough, there is plenty of mood music around within the game saying licensing will be returning, in fact it is even stated in Wakeys planning documents that that’s the plan. We need to get moving with some development otherwise our super league place will be at serious risk.

I thought we were well on the way to getting the old girl sorted out with Radders and his trusty paintbrush :D

We are stuck in no mans land until they say there’s not going to be a new ground how can you plan for anything else they will not spend on the jungle while ever they think there’s a chance of a new stadium. It’s a dangerous game when the RL are wanting a 10 team league with 2 french teams in it we will be gone.

The game will soon be gone with only 8 English teams in the top flight, particularly as a number of those clubs are currently in trouble due to having unsustainable financial profiles because they got involved in new Stadiums

New stadia have done nothing for the likes of Leigh, Widnes and Salford. The time is not right now in terms of the economy. Our priority IMO should be essential Health and Safety plus toilets and changing rooms (unless Radford has already sorted those out).

The emphasis from the club with respect to the planned new stadium was about how limited WR is as a modern day stadia. With limited income streams.
The supporting planning documentation was titled 'Thrive not survive' which sums everything up.
Warringtons new stadium has been the making of them financially.
St. Helens released a statement stating their new stadium is having a significant input into increased revenue.
Headingley has been revamped, and has fabulous facilities. Which are being used extensively 365 days a year. Thus, increasing revenue - especially non rugby related income - substantially.

Steve Gill publicly stated in 2015, we would be in the new stadium for the start of 2017.
Nearly 5 years down the line..... nothing!
It really is time for an update.... or maybe a bit of honesty as to exactly where we are.

WMDC, have not given Wakefield anything, they were loans, as is the new loan for the stadium revamp.
Cas have also had loans from WMDC.

toilets at Weldon road have been brought up two many times to mention only to fall on deaf ears, Radford must have been shocked with the state of the changing rooms to get the paint brush out, I went to Feath a couple of years ago before Normanton were due to play a couple of days later there were three old guys sat having a cup of tea on talking to them they said they came down most days to do bits of jobs that wanted doing,

Whilst Powell is apparently in awe of just how good the Warrington facilities are and can't believe how state of the art they are. Go figure.

Whatever any one says, facilities or lack of will always hold us back on and off the field.

I don’t disagree about the three you mention, but they are the exception and in the case of Headingley I hope Leeds income streams are totally separate to those of Yorkshire cricket.
I also want a new stadium but the economy is in the wrong place currently for that to happen. In my opinion Cas need to concentrate on on the field product to survive in Superleague in the short term. There are a lot of clubs in greater danger because of stadia which generate expenditure but little or no income, as clubs like Widnes and Salford know and, I suspect Hull, Huddersfield and Wigan too.

Someone I know may well have been one of those gentlemen. He spends a lot of time at the ground doing exactly what you say and in return, he gets tickets to games.

The latter would probably stop our penny pinching board from ever considering allowing 'volunteers' to assist down t'lane but it is a very simple idea that sees both sides gain benefits.
