#3049290 Batley v Dewsbury - match discussion

Posted by Netherton Ram on 27 December 2014 - 10:42 AM

He was winding people up in the tackle, led with the forearm once when taking the ball in, shouted get off me like an idiot in the tackle more than once, it led to the scuffles between the players. So he got what he wanted. It all happened on the side by the new seated stand. Wind up merchant. Plays the crowd more than concentrating on the game.

Was a pretty close game. We could have taken the 2 points at the end for a draw, but our boys wanted the win.

A shame that our halves didn't get much game time. Thackeray and Wildie weren't on the pitch 2 minutes. Hopefully they will feature more in the next friendlies, as they need game time together.

Grady was the stand out player for us in my opinion. He is a very good player and looks well ahead of the other players fitness wise.

Farrell is a great player, but tried too hard today and was greedy at times. He isn't a hooker though!

Hate to mention him, but Reitte, he really is a disgrace at times.

Have to say though the club is doing brill at keeping us all up to date. The new media team are very professional so Welldone tom Oliver and james and thank you :-)


Thanks Chris.


Takes time to write articles and press releases and then keep the website and social media up to date, but we enjoy doing it and try to get as much information from the club for you as we can.


I agree we are putting a lot more information out than there used to be.

#3045093 Rams terminate Zar-X Sports contract

The club steer away from the hoops every so often, as most fans already own a few of the traditional hopped design. Having a hooped shirt every year would not create great sales.

I know I can hear people saying "but, Wigan have a similar shirt every season", but they have a big fan base that buy shirts no matter what the design every season. Our club needs to change it to try and sell shirts. I know I don't usually buy a new hooped design as I already have some. I will be buying this new one though.

The pre-order sales of the new shirt have already been fantastic, so the majority of people must like it.

Hoops will return in the next couple of seasons I'm sure as last seasons wasn't hooped either.

I like the design a lot.

There is a new deal in place and there will be another statement this week on which company it is with.


All I will say is that there is more to a kit deal than always choosing the local option. Yes, it is always best to try and strike a deal with a local company, and it is more convenient, but there is a lot more to consider and the club has to get the best deal they can.


There are many great kit manufacturers all over the world, and in these days of the world coming closer together, through better telecommunications and shipping methods, it doesn't matter where a company is based if they can provide a great service.

#3042653 Rams reveal exciting open day details!

#3035051 New historical photos on website

Posted by Netherton Ram on 19 November 2014 - 03:23 PM

I have uploaded some photos of past teams, since the formation of the club, to the official website.


They can be found here: http://www.dewsburyr...cal_photographs


The photos are on the large side, but the next size down is too small and the player names cannot be seen. I will work on re-sizing them.


The photos are very interesting and I'm sure some of the older supporters can remember some of these players very well.

#3031761 New website

Posted by Netherton Ram on 12 November 2014 - 04:29 PM

There is now a link to the fans forum, under the 'Support' tab.

As Tom has stated he will be putting out a press release shortly.

#3019267 Website shop problems

Posted by Netherton Ram on 24 October 2014 - 03:26 PM

I have just been at the club and they have asked me to update you on the current online shop situation.


The current website shop is not working properly and is having issues when an order is made.


If you have ordered any item off the online shop and haven't heard anything, or received any items please contact the club.


For any further orders please call the club direct to prevent any problems.


The new website is very close to going live and this has a much better shop, that actually works properly (we hope!).
