Dear Supporters, members and Sponsors
First of all I'd like to thank you for your continued support through a very difficult time. The economic climate has seen us all tightening our belts! Secondly I'd like to share with you my vision for the club and with your help and support, how we can get there.
Destination Super league
I believe we have a fantastic opportunity of gaining a licence in 2014. Whilst we continue to dominate the Championship we are also developing our player pathway for the outstanding talent on our doorstep - already a notable success in Zak Hardaker, I see no reason why we can't continue the success we have all enjoyed with Daryl at the helm. However to apply for a licence we must improve as a business off the field to allow the club to keep improving on it. The ingredients of this are to be sustainable which includes a target of raising our turnover from 1m to 2m in 18 months, In my opinion this is totally realistic with the right expertise and drive on the board.
The next AGM will be a watershed in the clubs proud history in establishing how ambitious the club really is!! (will we grab the opportunity or will we settle for being stuck in the championship?) The make up of the board WILL be board members who can fill these key roles and have the energy and commitment to make things happen!

We have done a great bit of business in securing two modern 1300 seater stands and with the club owning its own stadium and the 17 acres it sits on, puts us in a great position and way in front of our near neighbours; not to mention our rivals in the Championship.
To get these in place we need a commercial partner who shares our drive and ambition, I have a partner who would love to join us in our "Destination Super League" who only works with forward thinking enterprises, we have to show them that we too have a board who share that drive and ambition. If you think you have the drive, ambition and skills please contact me on (edited).
I'm sure we all want this club back in Super League, let's not let this opportunity slip through our hands! I sincerely hope you all attend the AGM on the 20th February when we can all have some input in the make up of the board as this is just as important as the 17 Daryl picks to pull on the famous shirt (we can't / won't carry passengers) and ultimately the clubs future.
