It does seem difficult for the club to attract new supporters to watch the Rams. However imagine if we had moved to any other part of Dewsbury other than the Shaw Cross area when we left the old ground. I’d imagine we wouldn’t have a club to support by now, if we had moved anywhere else in the Dewsbury district.
One positive about the club at the moment is the off field developments such as the 4g pitches.
Whilst It is difficult for us improve on our crowd numbers (we have had a hardcore of around 700/800 for as long as I have watched). Could the club’s off field income streams be expanded to further support the rugby side? Could some of the land remaining be used to build something to generate further income to invest into the rugby playing side?
Do the bars and function rooms still get hired out for events? What else could the stadium be used for during the week?
There is still plenty of land left that could be utilised and still have a large car park.
