New Hunslet club crest options revealed

Hunslet has revealed two club crest designs that will now be put forward to its supporters to vote for their preferred choice.

The vote will take place at its home game against league leaders Toulouse, which takes place this Saturday (3rd September), Kick Off 3pm.

The two designs which have been shortlisted by the board are based on two previous club crests that the club has adopted over its proud history.

The first is the rampant Lion, and the second the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

Both crests will have “Hunslet” as the predominant text on the top of the shield, with the words “Rugby League Football Club” underneath.

The crests will also include the text “So we shall again” which is a line from the clubs famous war cry “We’ve swept the seas before boys”.

The new crests will also feature, for the very first time, the year the original Hunslet club was established which was back in 1883.

Club Chairman Neil Hampshire said: “I’d like to thank all those who took part in the recent vote which resulted in us changing our name back to Hunslet RLFC.

“I’d now urge all our fans to attend what will be an exciting encounter against table topping Toulouse, as we look to inflict their first defeat of the season whilst at the same time voting on our new club crest.

“There will be two options to choose from, both linked to our history.

“The first will feature the original rampant Lion which adorned our shirts from 1883 through to 1973.

“The second will feature the Phoenix rising from the ashes which was emblematic of our reformation as New Hunslet in 1973.

“We are delighted with both designs and we hope that both options will be well received by our supporters.”
