A crowd of over 3,690 cheered to the stand tops after Haven came back from trailing at half-time to trounce Workington Town. Rob Purdham was absent with Food Poisoning but Haven showed they had talent aplently.

The fans could not have asked for a more exciting finish.
Town made the early scoring mainly from former Haven players likes Bone and Lewty. Half-time (8-14)saw Haven on the back foot and not playing the ball around as much as the visitors. But Leroy Joe, voted Man of the Match by match sponsors, the Whitehaven News, was ever creative and Aaaron Lester played his socks off until he limped off having led his team to a victorious second half.The only Haven try in the first half came from Seedsy.
Aaron created the chances and Wes Wilson got a try just as the heavens opened and driving sleet forced the Town squad back into their bunkers. Haven from there on were rampant and steadily hammered Town down.
Paul O'Neill then scored on the wing and converted. It was then a steady rout of the Jameaters.Making it 18-14 to Haven.
Aaron then scored thanks to a build up from Leroy Joe. O'Neil converted.(24-14) Icing on the cake was a final try from David Seeds after a neat tap thru from Joe..
