We the undersigned would like to express our concern for the future of our club SHEFFIELD Eagles.   It’s taken 13 years for Mark Aston and his team to recover from being disbanded to where we are today the current CHAMPIONS of the Championship League.   He’s worked tirelessly within the community to encourage young people to be involved in the game, some of which have already gone on to play in our first team.  Sheffield prides itself on being a City of Sports and now Sheffield Eagles are asking the council to ensure their future is in Sheffield and not in doubt.   We would like the council to reassure us that this work has not been in vain and to keep Sheffield Eagles in SHEFFIELD.  We are probably the most successful team that Sheffield has had in recent years. 

 

We want the council to help the Sheffield Eagles remain in Sheffield by helping with funding's, like they have offered to help the athletics relocate now the Don Valley Stadium is to be demolished.

I hate to be a curmudgeon (no, really!) but I don't recall anything like this happening when our club lost its stadium and received ZERO help from Kirklees in relocating and building the new ground. The support from the rest of the league, with the honourable exception of Batley, was limited to say the least

 

If the Eagles are perceived as valuable enough to the city of Sheffield then the council will do all that they can, in these straightened times, to help. If not then you are just like the rest of us, standing on your own two feet.

 

Good luck.

Well said BSJ.

 

Amazing how these teams (and supporters) have such short memories.

 

SOme might not like to hear it but Dewsbury and Batley will always be inextricably linked in som way shape or form,and long may it continue imho

Should have kept some of the money they got when they sold their soul to the devil.

 

What money was that ?

I assume he means the money that all went to Huddersfield

 

 

 

...and the Sheffield shareholders, who's names elude me.
