KEIGHLEY Cougars have appointed Lisa Gill on to their board as managing director.

Gill joined the club early in 2019 as part of restructuring following the Cougarmania Ltd takeover spearheaded by Mick O'Neill.

Since then she has become a prominent figure in helping Cougars regain trust and partnerships with sponsors and the wider Keighley community.

Speaking of the appointment, board member Ryan O’Neill said: “We’re delighted to welcome Lisa as our newest member.

“Since arriving at the club, she has become an integral part of the Cougars brand both in and outside of Cougar Park and the decision was a 'no-brainer' for ourselves.

“Her hard work has led to an increase in sponsorship and interest of the club and for that, we are grateful.

“We look forward to continuing working alongside Lisa as we aim for our targets and goals both on and off the field for the Keighley Cougars.”
