  1. Top bloke , Kieran , lost a bit of pace but did a good job when called upon last season and helped the second team to grand final glory. He will do you a decent job next year.
  2. As of now ramsfandan we have three places available on the coach. Come to HHWMC on Sunday about 1PM for a couple of pints and free pie 'n' peas and you can be joining us on the trip to Hull (first come , first served) All you need is £40 and a few bob for refreshments at the game , we will be returning to HHWMC after the match for a nightcap or two. Hope to see you on Sunday.
  3. which team do you support Colcol?
  4. Judging by last nights showing at Headingley (and I was there) don't expect any record breaking crowds for the cuptie with Warrington. Despite a crowd in excess of 17000 , the Wire support was quite small against the league leaders. Our match as Shipley Ram states is a less attractive proposition , but I doubt they would travel in big numbers irrespective of which day the fixture was scheduled. By going for the Friday night , I think the club are hopeful of attracting a good number of neutrals (as I was last night) who support clubs that either aren't playing this weekend or are playing on Sunday afternoon. I hope the Warrington supporters come to our ground in good numbers and help create a great atmosphere as we had against the Bulls , but I expect a crowd similar to last year v Wigan around the 3000 mark is more likely IMO.
  5. Does that mean that "most won't be bothering" tonight seeing as they have to play away at Headingley on a Friday night too , after all the M62 is murder on a Friday.
  6. With Workington away next up for the Rams you would expect our coach and a few players to be at the mount on Sunday to run the rule over the town players. How did you rate them and who are their dangermen?
  7. There are only five regular committee members at present, two of whom man the turnstiles before the game. That leaves three to set up and man the AR booth and talk/sell our ideas to the supporters. As we all watch from the southstand it is difficult at the moment to have a presence in the main stand as transfers between the stands aren't allowed on matchdays. As we grow we will hopefully be able to set something up on the main stand side but that will require volunteers who watch the games from that side of the ground. We are always on the look out for additional help whether on matchday or to help with the ground improvement work we are undertaking.
  8. Great idea SuperDave, why not come along to the AR meeting tomorrow evening 8PM Hammer & Stithy Ossett and put your idea forward for consideration. Same goes for all Rams fans, we welcome your suggestions of where to spend our funds to make matchdays a better experience for all. The amber ribbon are already making a difference by painting the toilets under the south stand.The gents are well under way followed by the ladies and disabled toilets. We will fund all the materials (paint/brushes/rollers etc) all we need are more volunteers to put our money where our mouths are. If any Rams fans can spare a couple of hours on a monday or a friday please get in touch. The best place to catch us is at our regular meetings (details on the AR website) or at the corner of the south stand on matchdays. Any help in what we are trying to achieve, no matter how small is greatly appreciated.
  9. Glad that you enjoy coming to our ground, it will be good to see the improvements that have been made behind the sticks and the new pitchside fencing. I agree with your comments about new stadiums all looking the same and when you do eventually move back to Swinton, I hope they build a ground suitable for your needs and not one that is "Super League" ready ie way too big and hence soulless. The ground you currently share is a fantastic facility but has no atmosphere on match days due to three sides of empty red seats. We are lucky to have our own ground with ample parking, great viewing (due to the closeness to the pitch) and freedom to move about within the ground to watch wherever you like. We are now at last seeing some ground improvements, but rather than terrace the other end, I would prefer to see the perimeter fence replaced. Unfortunately when you build with timber you face the inevitable rotting of the posts at ground level. Now that the ground is approaching 20 years old, the fencing is looking very tired and tatty. Good luck for 2014 and we look forward to welcoming the lions to Tetleys stadium, but not to take the points home with you.
