I don't see how they could not drop out. The competition starts in a month's time and Keighley don't have a coach, staff or any players.

Right now they bigger fish to fry than playing in a pre-season competition - like surviving as a club

Thanks all for the comments, my understanding is Hunslet Old Boys have replaced us.

Shane Spencer has now paid half of the players, but not the staff. He is running Cougar Park Ltd as a separate entity to Keighley Cougars Ltd (although he has resigned from both as a director). My guess is all bar takings, functions and sponsorship will be swallowed by that leaving the actual rugby club having to cope on the central funding and gate receipts alone.

My guess is his shady complex legal dealings (look at this blokes record on companies house - 26 appointments) are meaning its taking an age to sort out.

Im not 100% clear as to the legal structure. RFL own the lease, COOP the land and presumably Cougar Park Ltd now own the buildings.

Although im guessing, maybe having a squad unshackled by a deteriorating ground is a good thing.

Aful that this shyster has been able to rip apart the club in such little time. Hope there comes a light at the end of the tunnel for you guys

Parkside have jumped into the cup they will be pretty competitive I think, testimony to their confidence as a club on the up at the moment they are confident to give a good account of themselves. Workington only beat them by 8 points in the challenge cup and they were lucky to do that too. Looking forward to see how Parkside go on

Keeping an eye on the T&A for news of RFL plumping for Shane Spencer/Austria Holdings or the rumoured Mick O'Neill/Mike Smith Cougarmania comeback bid.

Hope it's the latter.

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully that won't affect Craig Lingards position at the club?

Bet poor Lingard wishes they'd be so kind to have used vaseline.

Hopefully this situation will get resolved asap. If it takes a move to the union club to get shut of the owners then so be it.
