As proud sponsors of the club’s youth department; including the Under 16’s Scholarship side and Under 19’s Academy, GlassHus Facades have kindly given Castleford Tigers a trip for two to New York in December including flights, hotel and a bit of spending money. All funds raised from the prize raffle will be go directly to the Tiger’s youth development department and go towards helping make the Castleford’s stars of the future.

Raffle tickets for the chance to win a trip to New York cost just £5! Keep an eye out for some of our young players at our remaining homes games who will be selling tickets.

This season alone the First Team has seen the breakthrough of Academy graduates including: Jacques O’Neill, Calum Turner & Lewis Peachey, alongside more established players who have come through the Tigers’ youth ranks such as; Adam Milner, Nathan Massey & Oliver Holmes.

Head Coach Daryl Powell is keen on seeing more of the club’s youth players break through to the First Team; “We’ve had some really good players come through we want to make sure that’s enhanced and to do that we want to grow our fundraising to support them further.”

“GlassHus Facades have put this forward as a prize which is a great gesture from them and shows how committed they are to the club. It’s a fantastic prize and it’s all supporting our youth development, we want to continue signing the best young players from the area.”

Castleford Tigers’ Head of Youth Performance Darren Higgins wants the club to continue with a strong foundation with the club’s future talent: “This club has always been built around young players coming through the system, identifying them in the local area and being nurtured by the club.”

“It’s a fantastic gesture by GlassHus they’ve been a great aid for us since we signed a partnership agreement with them, the cost of running a youth performance department is really extensive so this is a great gesture and will really help us if people get behind it and buy into the raffle.”

Tickets will be on sale at our remaining home matches this season and are also available at our tetail stores at Xscape Yorkshire & Carlton Lanes priced at just £5.
