Ex-CEO calls on fans to support the club after worrying attendances

Things aren’t great at Castleford Tigers at the moment.

The club have just two wins in Super League and were dumped out of the Challenge Cup after a thumping by Hull FC on Sunday.

It should be noted that the Tigers were missing several key players including their entire spine.

The Tigers have been struggling for points and have begun a rebuild under new coach Andy Last after he replaced the departed Lee Radford who left the club after only three games in 2023.

It’s no surprise that fans aren’t happy especially with Wakefield Trinity sitting behind them in the table knowing that one win would put significant pressure on the Tigers.

Against Hull at the weekend, the Jungle played host to just over 4000 fans and over 2000 of those were travelling Hull fans showing the dissatisfaction among the supporters at present.

The Wakefield Express even described it as “voting with their feet.”

Now the club’s former CEO Steve Gill has taken to social media to call on fans to support the club revealing a terrible story from the past where the money from a fixture wasn’t enough to pay for the match day security.

He said on Twitter:

“Back in March 2013 we played and got beat by London Broncos one of my first home games in charge of Castleford Tigers the crowd was so low, we didn’t take enough money to pay for the match day security please don’t go there again #supporttheclub.”
