Rockets' badge to mark birthday.

RUGBY LEAGUE AS part of their 15th anniversary celebrations next year, Cramlingtion Rockets have created a new club badge.

The club have come a long way since their launch in Killingworth in 2000.

Starting out with only an easily-flooded pitch popular with dog walkers available for matches and midweek training taking place on the nearby car park due to being the only place with floodlights, the club now boast some of the best facilities and the biggest player base in the North East.

With the club going from strength to strength, 2015 promises to be a special year for the club and rugby league.

A range of activities and developments are planned, not least the Magic Weekend in May at St James' Park.

To celebrate 15 years of progress, the club have decided to update their badge.

The previous design was created when the club moved to Cramlington in 2009.

The new badge, designed in conjunction with Sam Monkhouse Graphic Design, has been a labour of love for Rockets' chairman Jeff Ball. He said: "We decided we wanted something which was both modern and eye-catching with plenty of orange and black, our club colours which make us so recognisable.

"It was also important to change the "established" date back to 2000 after it changed to 2009 when we moved from Killingworth to Cramlington.

"At the time it was to acknowledge what was a fresh start for the club but now we are established in Northumberland it is important we look back and recognise our heritage."
