A trio of “Keighley lads” have voiced their wholehearted support for the Keighley Cougars prior to their important match next month in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.

Responding to the news that the Cougars have reached the quarter-finals of the cup and have been drawn away to play Widnes, Keighley MP Kris Hopkins joined Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles and Labour MP for Leyton and Wanstead John Cryer to cheer on the team last week from outside the Houses of Parliament.
