Newly elected Keighley MP pledges support for town’s only professional sports club.
Robbie Moore, MP for Keighley and Ilkley, has hit the ground running with his support for Keighley-based Rugby League team the Keighley Cougars. Hot off the heals from his maiden Parliamentary speech – in which he mentioned the town’s mighty Cougars – Mr Moore formally met with owners Ryan O’Neill and Kaue Garcia to talk about their ambitious plans for the club’s grounds and how they intend to develop the Cougar brand over the coming years.
This was not the first time the town’s MP had visited the grounds. Prior to the meeting Mr Moore had seen the Cougars in action beating the Coventry Bears.
Mr Moore said: “It was a delight to meet with Ryan and Kaue to hear their plans for the future. It was great to learn about their educational outreach programme and I look forward to working with them on this. The Cougars are going from strength to strength now Ryan and Kaue have taken over, so it is great to see the pride put back into our only local professional sports team.”
Mr O’Neill said: "We're delighted that our new MP, Robbie Moore, is pledging his support to the club as he looks to build a better Keighley for us and the town.
"Both Robbie Moore MP and the Keighley Cougars supporting each other in turn allows us to put some pride and innovative ideas and profile for the town of Keighley.
"We are delighted to be working together and look forward to continue doing so during Robbie's tenure in office."
The objective of Keighley Cougars is to bring pride and spirit to our town.
