A WIGAN rugby league fan cost her employers thousands of pounds by allowing Warriors’ stars to stay in luxury holiday apartments in the Lake District at “hugely reduced rates”, a court has heard.

Lisa Jones, 47, swindled her boss by giving cut-price breaks to players and staff from her favourite team, but the club had no reason to believe that there was anything wrong with the deal, said prosecutor Greg Hoare.

Jones, who worked as estates manager for Pullwood Bay Estates on Windemere Lake’s North-West shore, told police she hoped that having the players staying there would generate such good publicity that other wealthy sports and showbusiness stars would want to go there too, Carlisle Crown Court heard.
