Great programme. I had loads of these, from my dad as they went on for a few years. The Batley ones with the Slalolm Lager sponsors and the Phoenix were great. Someone must have some of these. (I was too young to drink Slalolm Lager - was it any good?)

The player on the front looks like Peter Shilton - is it Fred Ward or Drew Broach?

I hope the crowd on Sunday is like the one on the programme - looks like a great atmosphere!

Whatever happened to our posts from Elland Road - the ones with the green and white hoops, the MWF crossbar and the little turrets on each post? Always remember they were always on the telly on Grandstand for GB matches at ER. Made me feel proud each time I saw them!

Hey Blackpool- you forgot to show that this Sundays game is a Championship fixture.
Thinking back don't think the player on the cover was moddled on anyone-- if it was it must have been one from the Greyhouind stadium days-- BOB PICKLES ?
The tuning fork posts were made by a company in Morley owned by a Hunslet Director at the time-- forget his name but he's on the photograph in the Pheonix Bar which shows our entire playing squad with the trophies we'd won, and taken at Elland Road. I remember the day it was taken as we were all told to wash behind our ears and comb our hair..

Looks like a backrower to me, I'm going for a young Jimmy Crampton.

I have the programs from the time at Batley in the loft, when I get chance I'll fetch one down and scan the front cover in.

From memory the tuning fork posts had to come down after we had been promoted and spent a year in the First Division. They had been fine all through the time we spent in Division Two, but we took some big scalps at home when we went up - Hull AND Hull KR, St Helens, Castleford, Wakefield. In the usual "big club style", somebody took exception to us beating them and complained to the Rugby League, saying something like "the defence didn't know where the tryline was without the bases of the posts to guide them".

Must have been a faster game than we remembered in those days if the defence didn't get chance to glance down to see the actual tryline itself ... :wacko:

If anyone wants us to use a programme, please dont scan it yourselves, we have to scan in High res to make sure it prints to a good enough standard. So drop in the club office and we will scan it.

KOL thinking back I always took the copy for these programmes to a printers in Meanwood who Ronnie Teeman or Jerry Mason knew and I believe they designed the cover, of course they could have used a rugby player as the model.
The printers definately designed the blue and yellow Hunslet at United cover which I didn't see until they were delivered to the ground.

I sure am -- used £52 last June to pay for a annual HAWKS lifeline membership with the promise repeated again now that I will give 50% of any thing I win to the club.
In my morning paper yesterdays attendance was given as 4919--- looks like our media manager as been doing some creative accounting.

these covers were designed by a guy at the printers we used,
and Blackpool- how about using one from our Elland Road days which showed a diesel locomotive with the HUNSLET nameplate and printed in Chocolate and White ?

I don't have any-- brought them all down to the club years ago and gave them to Big Al-- I last saw them in a filing cabinet in the back office-- mentioned this to Pat B so she may have sold them.
Someone , somewhere may have a copy that they could let you have.

Il ask Darren im sure they will still be there.

Also Just a thought when we play York this season it's 40 years since the last game played at Parkside ironically also against York. so if anyone has that programme we would love to use it for the game as we are hoping to have a players reunion.
