THE Cougars have issued a parking plea for Sunday's derby cash with the Bulls as they look to address the problems that affected last season's Joe Phillips Memorial Trophy match between the clubs.

The 2017 pre-season fixture, watched by 2,131 supporters, was won 25-24 by Keighley thanks to a late Matty Beharrell drop goal.

Yet the game was punctuated by tannoy announcements, with instructions usually delivered by Cougars chairman Gary Fawcett, that cars were set to be towed away as they were either parked illegally or blocking lorry access to industrial estates.

This year the club have issued instructions about where not to park around Cougar Park.

A Cougars statement says: "For our clash against Bradford Bulls on Sunday, all fans are reminded there should be no parking on any double yellow lines along Royd Ings Avenue, nor any parking across and around entrances to the police station, businesses and industrial estates surrounding the ground.

"Fans are allowed to park on the single yellow lines along Royd Ings Avenue as those parking restrictions do not apply on a Sunday.

"Bradford Met parking enforcement officers will be in attendance at the game and any illegal parking will lead to a fine.

"Fans need to be aware that the industrial estates are working areas on a Sunday and parking at entrances to these blocks lorry access, which will not be tolerated by the enforcement officers.

"The club have two large car parks at fans' disposal in Stells & Co on Royd Ings Avenue and Keighley Cricket Club on Hard Ings Road.

"There are other large car parks surrounding the ground, so there should be plenty of parking for all on the day.

"All fans are urged to arrive as early as possible to avoid congestion and to make sure they get a parking space. Cougar Park bars are open from noon that day."
