About 2 months ago me and 3 other people decided to start a new local amateur rugby league club where we live in Worltey Leeds, we started from scratch with no finances and not even a single rugby ball,
since then through a lot of hard work and commitment we have managed to aquire over £2500 in sponsorship & fundraising,
bearing in mind this is a team that havent even played a single game! surely this should be meat & drink to a team like Hunslet, im not knocking the people that volunteer to help any organisation and i never will because i know the hard work that goes into it...!!
like the shop for instance, nobodys saying we have to order things in bulk i.e thousands upon thousands, ordering 25 - 50 "quality" polo shirts at a time at a price of £12 and then selling them at £20 cant fail to make money surely??
then look at getting in "quality" jumpers & tracksuits, the demamand is there, all you have to do is talk to people in the Phoenix bar and they will tell you the same!
and if you find a sponsor for the polo's, jumpers & tracksuits then its all profit.......!!!
like I've said before we're not just doom & gloom merchants, we're Hunslet fans and i for one always will be, its just every club you look around at seems to be doing things and have things running that we dont.....!!!
