Hunslet Hawks have launched a brand new official website and online shop, in partnership with www.loverugbyleague.com.
The new www.hunslethawks.co.uk website includes all the latest news and information from the Hawks, embedding its Youtube (Hawks TV) and social media channels, the official Supporters Trust website, and an online shop to buy tickets and merchandise.
The website utilises a custom-built admin system that was put together specifically to help sports clubs manage and update their own website efficiently and effectively.
Hawks director Gareth Evans said: “One of the main off field areas the new board wanted to improve at the club was our online and social activities. To bring us up to the level we are aspiring to, it meant we needed to revamp our existing website platform to align us with the rest of our fellow professional clubs. We believe, that with the new website, it will allow us to engage with our supporters, sponsors and partners more effectively, give them a superior browsing experience, and give the club a new professional impact online. I would like to thank James and the team for their support over the last 3 months which has enabled us to get to this stage.”
JDG Media Managing Director James Gordon said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Hunslet. Their old website needed a bit of an upgrade, and we were more than happy to help. The system we have put together means it’s easy and affordable for any sports club to get a professional website that is easily updatable by anyone, be it them, us or a volunteer.
“As rugby league people, our priority is improving clubs for the better, and we look forward to this being the start of a long and successful working relationship with the Hunslet club.”
Warrington-based JDG Media offer a range of services to sports clubs, including their club website system, as well as social media management, website and matchday programme content, press releases, e-mail marketing and sports consultancy.
They own and operate the leading rugby league news website, www.loverugbyleague.com, and the site has sponsored Hunslet player Richard Blakeway for the 2012 season, as well as the recent Championship match against York City Knights.
