All Star clash hailed success
Hunslet Hawks have hailed the success of Sunday’s first ever game between the Hawks and the best local amateurs in South Leeds.
With a crowd of over a thousand in attendance it fully indicates that this, hopefully now to become an annual fixture, could be a highlight in the Rugby League calendar for South Leeds. The crowd were treated to a very good game of Rugby as the Hawks continue preparations for the 2012 campaign.
Barry Eaton said “This game will hopefully provide the springboard for the Community of South Leeds to benefit as a community and in particular player pathway in Rugby league as we hope to increase participants in the game at Junior level over the next few years so all junior clubs have teams to represent every age group which will enhance the Player pathway and create an even stronger amateur club environment, which is already one of the finest in the Country but will also ensure that the strong amateur clubs in South Leeds will continue to develop and have successful Junior and open age teams for many years to come as well as hopefully producing Local Players to play for this historic club Hunslet Hawks.”
Steve Gill (Manager, Hunslet All Stars) said “ The whole concept of the day and the game was great for the Rugby League Community of South Leeds and very encouraging and will hopefully grow as we make it an annual event”.
Hunslet Hawks would like to thank all the sponsors of the game, Harsco Infrastructure, Ravensport and the GMG Union, and would like to encourage anyone wishing to get involved in becoming a community partner of the club to contact Barry Eaton on 0113 271 2730 or firstname.lastname@example.org
