Club captain Matt Crowley said: “I’d like to thank Brad for providing this new medical bag – this is an essential bit of kit. Hopefully we won’t have to use it though experience would suggest otherwise with rugby league being such a high collision sport. No doubt we’ll be using it sometime this season.”

Burnley and Pendle RL are playing at a new venue this season, with the first game at The Prairie playing fields going ahead at 2-30 p.m. on Saturday. The new campaign will kick-off with a stern test against Manor Park RLFC of Oldham.
