Scott MacAvoy puts pen to paper with Whitehaven Director Gary Eilbeck in the newly re - furbished board room underneath The Ike Southward Trophy. Scott said "my recent operation seems to have been a total success and it has held up to all the rigourous pre season training. I am simply raring to go, we have a great new coach and a good solid squad with some new faces and old. It all makes for a great atmosphere at the moment." Eilbeck added "Scott is just so much part of this club, a senior professional and an inspiration to the younger players. Sitting under this famous trophy just makes us all want to start the season and of course retain the Ike Southward Trophy for the fans".
