9:48am Friday 8th February 2013 in Sport
ADE Gardner and Anthony Walker will play for Whitehaven this weekend after being placed on ‘Dual Registration’.
Dave Woods’ side will travel to Keighley on Sunday to take on the Cougars.
Alongside their partnership with Rochdale, Saints have also an agreement in place with Whitehaven to enable members of its first team squad to play in the Kingstone Press Championship.
General Manager Mike Rush said: “We are indebted to Dave Woods and his team for allowing us the opportunity for our first team players to get valuable game time at a high level.
“Both Ade and Anthony will benefit from the match against Keighley as they look to force their way into Nathan Brown’s first team plans.
“We have real competition for places at the Saints and agreements such as this and with Rochdale enable our players to build up vital match fitness.”
