Sadly for Hunslet they never put things in place really off field when they was enjoying the better times. Now thats come to haunt them for me. It must be hard for people to put much hard work in and seemingly get nowhere which it must feel like at times. But I personally feel that Hunslet just seem to have given up and seem happy to be a Leeds dumping ground and I personally couldnt support a club that had done that.
There were no better times. They were always getting nowhere.
Progressively people gave up on the club whether fans sponsors or Leeds Council.
40 years of hard work and slog to get nowhere Lizzy. 40 years of having their best players and fans attracted away from them
Eventually the numbers willing to help with time or money give up. Jerry Mason died, Graham Liles's health gave up. Their money masked the clubs weak position. We ran out of benefactors and people with no personal money are trying to salvage something
Yet you re-interpret this as bad management and laziness???
You can't reasonably and logically just assume that people SHOULD come forward and help for nothing, and when they do you cannot expect them to go beyond their own personal limits money and time wise.
Would you dare go down South Leeds Stadium an say what your saying to Blackpool Hawk and his colleagues face to face?
You still want to assume kids would be persuaded to play and watch the club. What would you have said to a 14 year old Paul McShane who went to a school that looks over Hunslets SLS home. "Paul why not get a Hunslet season ticket and come along and play for our juniors" Like the rest of the kids they are mostly not Hunslet people, and they aspire to Superleague. It's just up the road.
London Skolars or Gateshead are in a different situation.
Think again Lizzy, At least take on board what L'Angelo says......
