My 1st season as a proper Eagle, background being watching Wire all my life.

Wasnt sure what to expect, so, here’s my view so far.

On the pitch, really quite impressed. Good efforts week in week out, plenty of pace in the centres and on the wings, and an appetite for “lighting it up” whenever possible. Stand out annoyances being not starting until 15 mins in and dumb penalties all the time. Mr Aston must be pulling his hair out most weeks.

Off the pitch, shocking. No club shop on match days, no travel to away games- not even local ones, no proper weekly draw, a program which has no fixtures and results page, can’t hide from the cold wind on the bad days, seeing infirm away fans faces when they arrive, no junior or youth set ups, maybe I should stop there.

This isn’t a rant, just my honest view. I want The Eagles to progress, some of the above would generate money,,,, unfortunately I think the off the field stuff will be end of it all. Everyone at the club is friendly, match days are pleasant, we need the hot days to arrive.

In all honesty, I am not sure I will subscribe to another season at the OLP.

Hi Bill

Sorry to read your assessment of the state of the Club, I'm not sure how much of the recent history you are  aware of?

It was felt that a return to the city was a priority, even if the facilities were less than perfect!

The construction of the new stand will commence shortly with the target of it being ready for the start of next season.

Please continue to enjoy the performances on the pitch and keep the faith, things will get better off it, this is my 30th year following the Eagles, it has not been easy!

I have made lifelong friends and met many dedicated fans who have given many hundreds of hours of time, with no financial reward, to maintain Sheffield Eagles.

The Club needs supporters/fans to have a chance of progressing, please stick with us for a little while longer!

Hello to you and thanks for the reply.

30 yrs is a long time,, well done for that.

Im not sure about the validity of being a fan for years and the ongoing situations at the club, I have no doubt that everyone is working hard and in good faith.

”Work will start soon” re the stand along one side of the field has worn off with me.

I think you will find that the RFL will not accept that at the end of this season. There is no possible way that the building could be completed by next season.

I will see out this season and hope.
