Its dire and inexcusable, even at our level.

 

Both are free mediums to connect with existing and potential new fans and are ignored pretty much.

 

The unofficial roughyed page on twitter (whoever is tweeting from here hats off to you) puts the official clubs to shame.

 

I know the club doesn't have many staff but surely someone can keep the twitter and Facebook going daily.


In Topic: Roughyeds fans trust

A fans trust is a good idea but would CH part with his stake? Added to this rugby Oldham and Orsa both dont have ambitions to take a stake in the club (Do Correct me if I am wrong). If an attempt was made to take a stake we would need clear direction, unity and leadership for negotiations at present I can't see that.

Again not to go off topic, everyone knows the club is skint and I take my hat off to the numerous volunteers who keep the club going. But the club needs to get with the times. Poor website (the design not those who contribute) which could be a great place to promote the club to a casual fan. All other clubs sites at our level put us to shame. Then there is the merchandise non existent shirts at start of each season...

Finally the use of social media could be implemented much better twitter and facebook in conjuction with colleges and businesses. Get the club out there in peoples thoughts. Controlled by the fans we could add impact on these issues.
