Whitehaven rugby league have today appointed Gary Broadbent as assistant coach until the end of the season.
Whitehaven chairman Tom Todd said: “It goes without saying that Gary’s great experience in the game will prove invaluable going forward. His contacts within the game and his respect within amateur circles will help us invaluably”.
He continued: “Gary was ever popular when he was a player and many rated him as good a player as the great J.J.Mc. We are delighted he is back at the club and we know he will once again be a fans favourite. The club would also like to put on record their appreciation to the Vice Presidents/ Haven Horizon group for their financial contribution in making this happen.”
Gary will attend his first official training session tomorrow evening. He will also be attending the “Evening with Eorl Crabtree” next Friday in the J.J. bar at the ground.
This is another V.P./H.H. function and tickets are available at the club. It promises to be one of the best evenings for a long time but tickets are limited so please contact the club as soon as possible.
Haven play London on Sunday and this is just the lift we need. They need two points to lift them off the bottom two places.
General manager Amanda Hewer said “Although we have two games in hand these games have to be won and this is one of them. We would also ask fans to come and support the club and help us get behind the lads for a victory.”
