Thunder set for Super Saturday

Newcastle Thunder are gearing up for a Super Saturday this weekend when Workington Town are the visitors for a tea-time kick off at 5pm.

The penultimate home game of the season sees Thunder take on one of Betfred League 1’s form teams, with Town coming into the game off the back of a five-match winning run that was only interrupted by a narrow loss to York City Knights last weekend.

With the Cumbrians looking to lock into a top-five play-off spot and secure home advantage by finishing third, they are set to bring as strong a team as possible to the North East and set up a mouth-watering clash.

Taking place on Saturday evening to avoid a clash with the 2018 Great North Run,  Saturday’s action at Kingston Park will be preceded by the NCL fixture between Gateshead Storm and Clockface Miners in a 14:30 kick-off.

Tickets for Saturday’s Thunder match will grant entry to both games, with those available to book by clicking here, calling 0871 2266060 or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office.

Advanced prices are available until 5pm on Friday, September 7, with full match day prices applicable throughout Saturday.
