Away Days – Workington Town
June 3, 2023
Cornwall RLFC will make the 900+ mile round trip to Workington Town as Betfred League 1 moves to its 11th round.
Derwent Park is the only currently used stadium in the third tier to have hosted Super League rugby.
For the inaugural Super League season, in 1996, Workington Town were members of the top flight. However, it was a season to forget for the Cumbrians who propped up the rest and were relegated to what is now the Championship.
The ground, which has a mix of covered seating, covered standing and open terracing has also played host to international teams over the years.
The Australian Kangaroos of both 1990 and 1994 faced off against a Cumbrian representative team with Derwent Park gaining floodlights as a result of that first game.
The stadium, in more recent times, has hosted both Rugby League World Cup and Four Nations games.
Until 2018, it was also home to the Workington Comets speedway team. However, they folded and despite reforming this year, now race at a different, purpose built venue.
Workington’s matchday fare is provided by Sizzling Simon’s Mobile Hot Food stall, serving hot food and drinks.
The outlet will be located at the Town (South) end of the enclosure towards what was the speedway pit area.
Toilet facilities are available at various points around the stadium.
Full ladies and gents facilities are situated on the Town End/South terracing and also within the Gus Risman Bar.
There are also gents toilets to the Town End of the main stand at the top of the stairs.
Ladies toilets are directly underneath the Home directors box at the foot of the stairs on the walkway that connects the two sides of the covered terracing on the Main Stand side.
Car parking is available for £2 on matchdays.
