On the 11th December Dewsbury Rams held their kit launch. It was a fantastic event with a bumper crowd.
The evening started off with chairman Mark Sawyer explaining a bit about the projects going on at the club. He also thanked club sponsors, saying it is the most the club has had for many years.
Mark stood in front of a backdrop which has been brilliantly organised by Ady Marsh. The professional feel to the evening was fantastic. Mark then passed the mic over to head coach Lee Greenwood.
Both Lee and Mark explained why there was a table of food items to one side. This is because the club have partnered up with a foodbank in Ossett and one in Dewsbury. These are fantastic causes, each player brought in an item of food to give towards the collection on the evening.
Lee opened up his speech by talking to the fans about the season ahead, pres-season and recruitment.
He also introduced new assistant coach Jack Howieson. Jack answered a few questions on how he was settling into the club. Alongside Jack, club conditioner and trainer Adam Mitchell was introduced.
After that the kit was finally revealed as Paul Sykes stepped up to the front of the room.
Paul spoke about the new shirt, the season ahead and his new coaching role.
The evening rolled on as Steven Downes club media manager introduced the two people who designed the shirt on the evening. Eight year old Harry Hopkins and Gary Roberts stepped forward. As part of them winning the shirt design competition, they received a free shirt.
Lee then introduced each player from 30-1.
When Martyn Reilly stepped up to the front wearing the new training top. Brett Marsh also came to the front as he designed the training shirt. Again he was presented with the training top.
The evening ended with an Amber Ribbon raffle and supporters were able to buy shop items and season tickets.
We hoped all the people who attended the event enjoyed the evening. It was a huge success and really kicked off the 2020 campaign with a bang.
