0 Repairs aim to put end to flooding at Whitehaven RL's Recreation Ground

Whitehaven hope floods that have plagued the Recreation Ground for years have been consigned to history after a major repair project this week.

The postponement of last weekend's big Northern Rail Cup tie against 2010 Championship winners Halifax due to a waterlogged pitch was the final straw for Haven.

The tie had been expected to attract a bumper crowd and it was the only NR Cup game across the country that fell victim to the wet weather last weekend.

A collapsed drain at the Railway End of the stadium, a long-time problem, meant rainwater was failing to drain from the surface.

Club director Ian Harvey this week managed a project to install a new sump and electric pump which will mean water is drained away.
