Captain Sir Tom Moore gate officially opened at Cougar Park

Keighley Cougars have held an official opening ceremony for a new gate at the ground that celebrate the life of Keighley-born Captain Sir Tom Moore.

The unveiling took place ahead of this weekend's fixture at the rugby league ground.

The new gate has been designed and created by John W Laycock and GM Engineering, and also features a mural painted by Michelle Hunter.

It is at the Hard Ings Road side of Cougar Park.

Captain Sir Tom, who was born in Keighley in 1920, died in February this year at the age of 100. He touched the hearts of the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic, with his fundraising efforts bringing in more than £30m to NHS Charities.
