A big well done to Hendo, a top bloke. He will give 100%, I look forward to London finishing second to the Eagles

I hope this is useful Match day admission prices for Sheffield Eagles home games are priced as follows: Adults = £15 Concessions = £11 (Over 60’s and young adults aged 17-20) Juniors = £5 (16 and under) There are a number of games at the Keepmoat that will be played as double headers with Doncaster kicking off at 2pm before Sheffield play at 4:15pm. Admission to these games are priced as follows: Adults = £20 Concessions = £16 Juniors = £5 Car parking is available at the stadium and is priced as follows: Cars = £4 Mini Bus = £15 Coaches = £20 Seating is allocated by ticket type, if you buy a Double Header ticket you can stay in your seat after the first match has finished.

I can't find anything on either website, why do you think it's 2pm?

Surprised to see chairman KN get involved in this, that'll give Aston something else to get stuck into!! Fact is the RFL have, and must still be, bent over backwards to ensure that RL survives in Sheffield, as well as other outposts, without looking after the rank and file (except Bradford of course!!). Had it not been for stalwarts like KN and Mark Sawyer and their board members, if Batley or Dewsbury had experienced severe difficulties, I can guess at the amount of help that would have been forthcoming from the RFL. Aston should think, before letting his mouth run away with him, just how much the RL community has stuck by his club through their many phases and be thankful that chairmen in his particular league allowed his club to use Owlerton last year. AND, as far as the DR problem last year, it was a mistake pure and simple, a fact clearly realised on appeal by the RFL along with the fact that they'd let others get away with it in the past (no excuse I know, Batley, and Doncaster, were lucky, they still broke the rules). It wasn't a case of 'sod it we'll play a few ringers just to rub Astons nose in it', like he appears to believe is the case when anything doesn't run as he wants.

Would you please explain what the RL community has done for Sheffield?

Only one club, Barrow, voted to allow the re-formed Sheffield Eagles into the League in 1999, all the other Clubs would have allowed them to disappear!

Currently our friends at Doncaster are our landlords until the new stadium is finished, which will provide some cracking double headers.

I await with interest your examples of assistance from the community.
