I thought you would have known this Frisky? The other share holders, I'm not going to name them, but there are many individuals other than Grahame and Sean who own shares in the club.

Its remarkable news, what a journey, the club was on the brink of going into administration at the start of the 2012 season. I for one am proud of the hours, days and months of hard work that's been put in by numerous people to secure the future of the club Its an amazing feet for a few supporters to have undertaken this massive task without any experience and come out the other side with the club in a much better position and with a bright future.

Funny you should say that Blackpool but I did buy a lot of shares when the New Hunslet club was formed in 1973. I used to get regular share holders statements from the then Financial Director David Adams, but when he left these stopped. Are these the same shares, at the moment they are in my safe more as a souvenir.
well done to all at HIST.

Not sure Frisky, there are two types of shares A & B, get them out and have a check, see what type of shares they are, feel free to donate them to HIST.

Great work!

I took a look a the 'media pack' on the Hawks site yesterday. Definitely a blueprint for other clubs at this level to follow.

Surely it was decided long, long ago that we'd be in a Championship of 14 teams, giving 13 home matches ??? Don't say the RFL are still dithering on that one ??? :wacko:

Well done HIST by the way ...

From everyone here at the BULLDOGS, and in particularly BISSA and its members, WELL DONE.

It may have been decided but not confirmed as of yet, its 99% nailed on what you say is correct, but we might as well wait for conformation.

I heard there were some great presentations last night. Sorry I missed it but will definitely be there for the volunteers night and shirt launch evening.

I understand the players sponsorships are selling fast so fans need to get in quickly.


Again, just to echo earlier comments - well done to the board and others for getting us this far.

Hunslet: STILL the city's only club to win all competitions in one season.
