The next game at The Shay isn’t due to take place until June 25 when Halifax Panthers host Barrow Raiders.

Calderdale Council’s Assistant Director of Customer Services, Sarah Richardson, said: “The annual maintenance of the Shay pitch is now underway.

"This involves scarifying work and a surface treatment to support well-structured soil involving the application of 90 tonnes of sports sand.

"The surface will then be brushed and reseeded.”
