Whitehaven stalwart urges team to play for pride in final games

Whitehaven forward Spencer Miller says his side will be going all out to try and win their last three games – despite being relegated on Sunday.

Miller admitted everyone was devastated at the club’s drop to Championship One but he insisted they have to pick themselves up in time for the visit of Dewsbury on Sunday – ironically the team that sent them down.

“I think we knew it was coming,” said Miller who recently made his 250th appearance for Haven.

“But it is pretty sad really, when you think where the club has been for the past few years, to now get relegated into the division below.

“We will be going to training tonight and I imagine we will have a sit down beforehand and see what Ged wants to say but it is dispiriting. It will be hard on Sunday but we have just got to try our best and try and get a win.

“Pride is what we will be playing for against Dewsbury, we haven’t had the best of seasons and we haven’t had many wins so we need to try and salvage some wins at the back end of the year.”

Miller added that after the Featherstone defeat the team had declared they would fight all the way to avoid the drop but in the end it was taken our of their hands. He added: “We said after Featherstone that we were all going to get together and go all out for the last three games to try and stay in that division.

“It would have been a good game on Sunday, with both of us trying to stay up but it wasn’t to be and the damage has been done now.”

Miller also admitted that it would be no easy feat for Haven to just bounce back up to the Championship at the first time of asking next year either.

“I think it is going to be very hard work because it is a good division,” he said.

“When you look, we went to Blackpool in the cup and got beat, Town beat us and Hunslet beat Halifax in the Northern Rail Cup so it is a tough division.”
