CTSC 2nd Annual dinner dance

Saturday 22nd November 2015

Magnet Hotel, Pontefract Road, Castleford.

Special guests, Kirk Dixon, Michael Shenton, Daryl Powell, Janice Powell and Steve Gill.

With a sell out audience to celebrate the 2015 season. I would like to thank, past and

current members, Castleford Tigers Club officials, coaching staff and players for helping

us this season.

Just like the main club we have loyal members and sponsors, Your support as kept us

going, together we have raised and donated over £67,000 to the Tigers since 2004, a

fantastic effort,thank you all.

This year we reached 305 members and have 6180 members on Facebook and 2132

followers on twitter, our aim in 2016 is to increase membership further.

After a superb dinner, we had a word with Kirk Dixon who had retied at the start of he

2015 season,we talked about his career at Castleford, the ups and downs and his

personal memories,he enjoyed his time at the Tigers and always looked for the Tigers

result first. Kirk won many awards at the CTSC player of the year awards night over the

years, attended many of our events and always gave us his support in good and bad

times. We then made a presentation to Kirk in recognition of a great career and wished

him well for the future.

Next up was Michael Shenton, who spoke about the squad for 2016 season and it being

very strong, with competition for places in every position.We also touched on the

disappointment of the England squad for Michael and Luke Gale. Michael was looking

forward to the season and the need to step up in intensity in the clubs aim for the top

four.

Darryl Powell was next and he gave his assessment of the 2016 squad, the attitude of all

the players in pre season training and the need to start better than we did last season,

consistency of performance was the aim. Top four and to win any trophy was the target

for 2016. Darryl was happy with the whole of the club and how it had progressed since

2013.

Lastly Tigers CEO Steve Gill gave an update on the clubs position, before the dinner we

had all observed a moments silence for Bridie and Jack Fulton, Steve repeated that our

thoughts and prayers were with the Fulton family. Although not complacent the club

was doing well on season tickets, 3050 sold to date and the club was in a profitable

position. All the guests thanked the CTSC for their continued support.

As a thank you to our guests we also presented

them with a gift from the CTSC, once again thanks to all our guests for attending and

making it a special night.

The festivities continued with a raffle, auction, Karaoke and dancing

until late.

Special thanks go to Michelle and the Magnet Hotel staff for looking after us so

well,everyone who attended and made it a special night, the CTSC committee for all

the hard work, Christine Taylor, Ken Harrison,Keith Taylor, Derek Whale, Vicki Ellis and

Dave Bowman.
