Kick off times

That's the problem tho. Yes the club rely heavily on its existing support base and band of faithful volunteers. But it's only so long hitting on the same hardcore support will last.

Last year the club did a sponsored walk / cycle ride for ground improvement fund "electric score board". I gladly chipped in sponsorship to individuals who made the effort for the walk. Where's the score board?

The club is a business. Correct? The fantastic BOD do a great job. Probably for very (if) any return. But surely, they must have a strategy to improve the club. We have a great little well run club, and recent achievements are there to be built on. I've suggested ideas before and ColinB they get put to the club. Again I've suggested more see last page. I'm no marketing guru by any means.

I believe a Swinton(?) supporter last year produced a match day poster which was published on their message board. Other supporters were then able to download this and distribute to their local shops, pubs etc.

Is there anyone out there willing to do this for the dogs?

I actually mentioned to Iro early last year that if they wanted me to advertise any posters in my shop for home games ect,that it would be fine,never heard anything from it.

I also seem to remember seeing a great idea for a mobile match day poster installation on the Hunslet site a couple of years ago. It looked very smart. If anyone knows people at HIST it could be worth checking.

The Signs Are Looking Good For The Hawks.

17 December 2012

Hunslet Hawks are delighted to reveal our new mobile fixture advertisement trailer. The trailer is a first for the club and will be used primarily to promote home fixtures throughout the season as we look to increase crowds in 2013. The trailer which includes an action shot of 2012 player of the year Luke Haigh has a  frame size of 3000 x 2000, the printed area is 10ft. x 5ft with a spare area at the bottom 3000 x 500, for any promotions. The trailer will be positioned on some of South Leeds’s busiest commuter routes meaning that a target audience in access of a hundred thousand commuters per week will see the sign and the Hawks branding. 

Media & Marketing Director Gareth Evans said “We are delighted with the new sign, the club has often in the past been criticised for its lack of advertising in terms of the club and our fixtures in particular. This is an area we are trying to resolve as we look to increase awareness of the club and increase the number of people visiting the South Leeds Stadium in 2013 and we think the sign will go a long way to doing that. We have many plans and ideas on how we can build on this and we hope this the first of many signs, adverts and banners appearing across South Leeds in the near future. I would also like to thank Andy and Yorkshire Signs for their continued support.”

Andy Hemingway of Yorkshire Signs commented “We felt that the club should be advertising their home games to as many local people as possible, and the most direct method was to produce a mobile advertising trailer, that could be sited next to some of South Leeds’s busiest arterial roads”.

Please keep a look out for the sign, first person to spot the sign and email the club with its location will win a prize. email info@hawksrl.com

One thing that's getting overlooked in the kick-off time argument is media coverage. A 2 pm start is losing all exposure on radio, which we REALLY need, and Heavy Woollen hospital radio now only broadcast Dewsbury matches. When JD's programme starts at 3 we're already kicking off the second half and anyone working or listening in for some other reason hasn't a clue of how the first half went, who did what etc.
