It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have now sold over 500 season tickets to date. The Club is feeling re-energised, with a new team and new ideas. The Off Season has been busy and with our Supporters Trust and LS28 Supporters Club, the people of Halifax have had little chance to forget about Fax. All of your supporting initiatives have been greatly appreciated.
Our marketing team have been very busy and with only one Match Day sponsorship to sell, we are ready to start the season on a great footing. There are also only four player sponsorships left and nine kit sponsors to find, so come on and support YOUR club! Please contact us if any of these are of interest to you.
We can confirm that our New Shop will open, for you to buy all of your Fax merchandise from Monday 11th December. More details will be announced very soon on this and the new merchandise. This will be a great opportunity to secure all of your stocking fillers and presents for Christmas. Please remember that all profits will go straight to the club.
We'd also like to give you an update on the players.
Pre-season training has started and is going very well, but we do have a couple of players that are carrying injuries at the moment. We would like to give you the following updates:-
Adam has had an operation on his foot following an injury he sustained against Featherstone Rovers on the last day of the season. This went well and we are hoping to see him back in a Halifax shirt around April.
During pre-season training, Harry has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament. A scan on Tuesday confirming the worst news for both himself and the club. We hope to see him before the end of the season but it's certainly not the start to Harry's Fax career that we all wanted.
Also regarding training, we will keep our supporters updated throughout pre-season with footage and interviews. Keep a look out over the next few weeks for some of the interesting training sessions that the coaching staff have planned.
Due to your fantastic support for both season tickets and new merchandise, the Club are now talking to three potential new signings and hopefully, we can announce details of new additions to our squad very soon.
There are still a lot of Commercial and Operational activities going on behind the scenes and hopefully, more announcements will be made shortly.
Once again, thank you for all of your support. Halifax RLFC is YOUR TEAM and all that our team does is for you and the people of Halifax.
