Next week’s Barrow game will see the launch of the new Hunslet Hawks monthly magazine “South of the River”.

In recent years the club have received a lot of plaudits for our programme but we were keen to expand the readership from just our match day supporters. As well as covering the Hawks the new magazine will have features on our local amateur teams as we continue to strengthen links within the community.

Editor in Chief is life long Hunslet fan and respected rugby league journalist Phil Hodgson. Despite the obvious confusion that is going to ensue with another Phil Hodgson at the Club we are confident the magazine is going to be a big hit with supporters.

However, we know we have many supporters who love to collect their match day programmes. Steve White is one such supporter so he came up with the idea of producing an abridge version. A limited edition of 100 will be on sale for ยฃ1 at every game. Each programme will have a unique number which will gain entry to a prize raffle ย to be drawn in the Phoenix after the match.

The Club would like to thank Steve for his input and also finding a sponsor to fund the programme’s production, the world famous Scandinavian Hawks, who will appear on the back cover.

Together Stronger
