18/02/23 – Hullensians RUFC.

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to Laund Hill on what we hope will be a dry and sunny afternoon as we work our way towards the end of the league system in Yorkshire 1. Our first season as Huddersfield Laund Hill RUFC, the start of a new era for our club. Regular patrons will know it’s seldom warm out on the field at Laund Hill Stadium but that there is always a warm rugby welcome in the bar for players, spectators, match officials, past players and anyone else who wants to enjoy a drink  and discuss the sport of rugby union.

 

An especially warm welcome today to our visitors from Anlaby Common, Hull; Hullensians RUFC.

Their officials, players and spectators are very welcome to join us for what we hope will be a keenly contested game of fast flowing rugby. Hullensians currently sit seventh in our division after winning and losing eight and drawing one of their fixtures so far and having earned nine bonus points. HLH lie tenth having won four and lost thirteen of our fixtures with ten bonus points.

 

Meanwhile, the rebuild at Laund Hill continues. I’m sure that retaining our place in this division has contributed towards the rebuild that has begun and where there is a more positive atmosphere week by week. HLH will be looking to reverse the scores from earlier in the season when Hullensians ran out  winners by 60 points to 17, demonstrating greater fitness, determination, discipline and team spirit than HLH. Let’s hope we can give them a few things to think about this afternoon and put some more points between us and Dinnington who currently lie 11th in our division, eleven points below us.

 

Good luck to both teams and to Hullensians for the rest of their season. I’m sure everyone looks forward to a keenly contested tussle today at Laund Hill played within the laws and spirit of the game we all love. We were made very welcome at Anlaby Common earlier this season and will look to be good hosts to our visitors, perhaps not being so generous to them on the field.

Also welcome today is/are the match official(s), without whom, we wouldn’t be playing at all.

Everyone is asked to give them their full support and to have a chat with them in the bar after the match if they have something to discuss with them. The match officials are also here to enjoy their rugby and often travel many miles to ensure that we have a game each week. I’m sure they welcome your congratulations and will happily discuss any salient points over a beer or two, especially if you are paying!

 

Huddersfield Laund Hill RUFC is a community club and is striving to provide an opportunity for everyone in the community to enjoy their rugby in whatever capacity they can manage whether it be playing, volunteering, taking on a role of responsibility, bringing along their children or simply turning up to support our players.

 

Your club is always desperately short of volunteers so if you can spare an hour or two each week, why not get in touch with the club volunteer co-ordinator, Sean Barrett. He can be contacted by mailing seanbarrett26@outlook.com and give something back to the club which may well have provided you with years of enjoyment on or off the field
