Kinsley joint promoter John Curran has responded to a story circling greyhound social media that his track has closed. And he has done so in ‘pure Yorkshire’.

“It’s absolute bollocks! And you can quote me on that. Who starts these rumours?

“We are suffering like everyone else during Covid, but there are ample resources to see us through this. If the day ever came, my family would be the first to know, followed by my trainers. This industry is up against it, but no different to many others. But there are zero plans to cease trading.”
