Helen Carter, Keighley Cougars General Manager, said: “We’re delighted that the Town Council are going to afford the club the honour of a civic reception.
“It was an amazing event in the club’s recent history and we like to think that besides crowning an amazing year for the Cougars that the victory reflects well on our town as well putting a spring in the step of the townsfolk.
