Hornets V Hunslet Hawks
Our next home fixture is against big spending Hunslet Hawks.
This will be another stern test for our boys, but the way Head Coach has got Hornets playing any visiting team to "Fortress Spotland" must be at their very best to come away with a result.
To ensure we continue with our impressive run of form we need all Hornets supporters to get behind the team both vocally and in bringing a friend or two along to cheer the boys on to victory.
Hornets will be promoting the game with a poster campaign in conjunction with our major sponsors, The Wheatsheaf Centre, Rochdale.
Local Amateur teams and community groups will be involved on matchday to create a real family atmosphere at the game.
We are hosting a series of Schools finals which are being played as Curtain Rasiers before the Hornets V Hunslet Hawks, get down early to support these localschools.

Please remember AS A MEMBER you help run and finance the club, without your help the club cannot go forward and all the great work being achieved on the pitch could result in nothing.
Scrum Down With Hornets Night
Hornets hosted a very successful Fun/quiz/gameshow night last Friday.
There was a bumper attendance with the entire playing and coaching staff along with several Wags in attendance alongside a healthy turnout by Hornets supporters.
Which meant for a very entertaining night that also raised a sizeable amount for club funds. We are planning other fundraising events to help finance Stankys push for promotion!
Wendy is hoping to run a supporters coach to Doncaster, South Wales and Workington(this will included a lunch stop at cockermouth )
Please let Wendy know if you would like a seast on the coach, the more numbers the cheaper for everyone.
