SUPER League stars are backing a fundraising drive to help the Normanton Knights extend their clubhouse
The team needs to raise £50,000 to build the planned extension before the next season kicks off in September.

Former junior knights players and now Super League stars, including homegrown Jamie Langley, of Bradford Bulls, and Ben Westwood, of Warrington Wolves, are backing the plans.

Members of the club, based at Queen Elizabeth Drive, also want to revamp their facilities.

Johnny Kirk, 28, who plays on the Knights’ first team, said: “We have wanted to do this for a long time, and it takes so long to look for funding and apply for grants that we just decided to do something about it ourselves.

“We know it’s a lot of money to raise, but we think we can do it.”

The team are meeting with Wakefield Council this week to discuss planning permission for the site.

If plans are approved, the team will run a series of fundraising events.

Mr Kirk, of Rose Farm Rise, in Altofts, said: “We will be asking people to sponsor a brick, and all the money raised will be put into the extension.

“We will also be holding a fun day in the summer, along with a sponsored bungee jump and sponsored climbing wall event.”
