Indeed it is, superb cover. What year was that, 1974/75 season?

If it was from as early as that they must have kept it on for a few seasons, because I didn't start going regularly until a season or two after that.

For a real retro feel for this game I think we should bring back those tuning fork posts !!!

Il get on to the council now, see if there's anything they can do :)

On a serious not if anyone wants to put forward a programme cover from the past to be used this season please do so, we have another 12 home games after Sunday so plenty of covers to feature.

Brilliant this. This season, should try and get the front cover programmes from all the grounds we played at. If we get a home challange cup tie, the programme should be from the 65 final.

These covers definitely make the programmes more collectable.

Think that's a great idea to get one from each of the stadiums wehave played at, We have covers from the Parkside, Bramley era, and also Elland Road, has anyone know or can share one from the Batley era?

We could also choose one from the SLS era from 1995 onwards so if there any recommendations please let me know.

Can't think there'll be many clubs in any sport with a better looking programme than that this weekend!

Great programme, brings back great memories but unfortunately not of the player on the cover. I'll have a punt at Geoff crewdson.

I will be digging out my New Hunslet shirt (I blagged from Jimmy Crampton) for Sunday. Has anyone got any other souvenirs from that era. We had some really cool silk scarves as I remember.

Great programme. I had loads of these, from my dad as they went on for a few years. The Batley ones with the Slalolm Lager sponsors and the Phoenix were great. Someone must have some of these. (I was too young to drink Slalolm Lager - was it any good?)

The player on the front looks like Peter Shilton - is it Fred Ward or Drew Broach?

I hope the crowd on Sunday is like the one on the programme - looks like a great atmosphere!

Whatever happened to our posts from Elland Road - the ones with the green and white hoops, the MWF crossbar and the little turrets on each post? Always remember they were always on the telly on Grandstand for GB matches at ER. Made me feel proud each time I saw them!

Hey Blackpool- you forgot to show that this Sundays game is a Championship fixture.

Thinking back don't think the player on the cover was moddled on anyone-- if it was it must have been one from the Greyhouind stadium days-- BOB PICKLES ?

The tuning fork posts were made by a company in Morley owned by a Hunslet Director at the time-- forget his name but he's on the photograph in the Pheonix Bar which shows our entire playing squad with the trophies we'd won, and taken at Elland Road. I remember the day it was taken as we were all told to wash behind our ears and comb our hair..

Looks like a backrower to me, I'm going for a young Jimmy Crampton.

I have the programs from the time at Batley in the loft, when I get chance I'll fetch one down and scan the front cover in.

From memory the tuning fork posts had to come down after we had been promoted and spent a year in the First Division. They had been fine all through the time we spent in Division Two, but we took some big scalps at home when we went up - Hull AND Hull KR, St Helens, Castleford, Wakefield. In the usual "big club style", somebody took exception to us beating them and complained to the Rugby League, saying something like "the defence didn't know where the tryline was without the bases of the posts to guide them".

Must have been a faster game than we remembered in those days if the defence didn't get chance to glance down to see the actual tryline itself ... :wacko:

If anyone wants us to use a programme, please dont scan it yourselves, we have to scan in High res to make sure it prints to a good enough standard. So drop in the club office and we will scan it.

KOL thinking back I always took the copy for these programmes to a printers in Meanwood who Ronnie Teeman or Jerry Mason knew and I believe they designed the cover, of course they could have used a rugby player as the model.

The printers definately designed the blue and yellow Hunslet at United cover which I didn't see until they were delivered to the ground.

Have just listed the one from the BARROW game.
