Following the recent addition of Jason Peterkin and Damian Irvine as non-executive directors, Hunslet have issued a statement inviting further expressions of interest to join the club’s board.

The Parksiders are plotting a route forward that involves an initial 12-week review to investigate options and ownership models available and affordable to its owners.

And the statement advises: “Whilst it has been made clear that a preferred model of future ownership is to retain a majority Supporter Owned Hybrid Model, it is important to Jason and Damian and all board directors that no single model is pursued in isolation and that the club hears from all interested parties who may seek to invest into Hunslet RLFC regardless of the model currently preferred.

“Should a hybrid model proceed in future it will require a strong supporter-led board.

“To this end the board also welcomes interested parties who may wish to invest into the club in return for a shareholding and seat on the board to assist in governing and leading Hunslet RLFC into this exciting new chapter.”
