  2. the thing that surprises me is the fact that there are only 67 contributors to Easyfunding . surely there are family and friends of supporters, that use the internet to purchase things every day, and they don't know they can be linked to Easyfunding. spread the word.
  3. yes I spent just short of £20 the other day...and raised the grand sum of 10p last year someone wanted to push on to the £4,000 target for Christmas..... 1 year on and we still haven't got there yet....
  4. yes and booking.com , had to cancel the Blackpool bash. .and they obviously took the money back...
  5. given the amounts e bay and Amazon generate these days, its a wonder the figure got anywhere near £ 3.800 what were the initial percentages ?.

    2021 strips

    but are these shirts one of the options ? or will Ravensport just design one for us. regardless of what the fans want lets hope we haven't gone over to Red and white full time
  7. I cant find my posts from years ago, my last post with shirts was September 2019, and like Silverback says was based on the Rochdale shirt. I think you mean from the days when we ended up with the doggy paw prints ?..but that was a lifetime ago.. this was 2019
  8. I have not saved shirt designs on my new laptop, but the forum has posts going back 6 years,so if you know exactly how many years , they will be there somewhere, I had a go at a couple of design's over the years, I even got a nominate for a Dewsbury away shirt on their forum, they will not have been stripes though as such, hoops or Vs,
  9. at least BSJ did not get hooked on this one....

  13. just a thought....are these Afghans and Syrians carrying the inflatable boats on their backs on their hike through Europe...or are they buying them when they reach the French coast?....
  14. Ottawa Aces have been officially launched to join League 1 in 2021. A press conference was held at their new home, the TD Place Stadium, to unveil the new relocated Hemel Stags franchise. RFL chairman Simon Johnson said: “I was delighted to be present at the TD Place Stadium for the launch of the Ottawa Aces and to confirm that the Aces will enter our competitions in 2021. “It has been a long journey to get to this point, and I congratulate Eric Perez and his partners and investors for their commitment and vision to relocate the Hemel Stags to become the Ottawa Aces, along with the wishes of the Championship & League 1 Clubs. “That reflects the benefits to our competitions and clubs from the progress of Toronto Wolfpack through League 1 and the Championship over the last three years. “In Rugby League’s 125th year, as we celebrate the rich heritage of this sport, the introduction of Ottawa Aces to the competition allows us to look to a colourful, expansive and global future. They will bring a new and passionate audience to our great game. The wonderful facilities here in Ottawa will bring an exciting new element to the Betfred League 1 next season.” All Ottawa Aces home games in Betfred League 1 during the 2021 Season will be streamed live on the Our League app. The RFL has also confirmed that discussions with New York Rugby League are progressing and that negotiations are advanced for New York to enter the Challenge Cup next year. If these negotiations are completed, New York would enter at the first round stage. https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/ottawa-aces-to-join-league-1-from-2021/
