The wily old fox Peter Jarvis will be the chief guest when Hunslet host a pre-Christmas bash next week.

Jarvo, who plans to have two or three other former players in tow, is a Vice President of the club after stepping down recently as a director.

The former prop played for Hunslet in the Parkside era before transferring to Bramley in 1971; he subsequently starred for Halifax and Huddersfield.

With David Ward, he coached Hunslet to the Division Two title in 1986-87.

Jarvo will entertain supporters in his own inimitable style with a question and answer session before the Parksidersโ€™ current boss Gary Thornton introduces members of the 2020 squad to the fans after training.

Ian Pickles will act as MC at the event, which will take place in the South Leeds Stadiumโ€™s Phoenix Bar on Thursday 19 December from 7.30pm. Admission is free.

Hunslet will also unveil their home strip for the forthcoming Betfred League 1 campaign, and replica shirts will be on sale. Fans will, in addition, be able to sign up to the clubโ€™s various membership packages and purchase season tickets.
