As another year draws to a close the HGSA would like to point you in the direction of our upcoming events.

2018 was another hugely successful one for the Supporters Association, our membership continues to grow, our monthly meetings with top quality guest speakers continue to be very well attended and popular, the cricket day was a huge success as was our annual reindeer race night, along with the running and promoting of the Academy and Scholarship games plus having exclusive access to the Legends bar at the stadium pre-game and Brian Blacker's ever popular roadshow there is lot's of reasons to become a member of the HGSA and still only £5 per year of which every penny we raise goes back into the Academy /Junior development at the club.

This year our committee handed over a cheque for £14,000 to Ken Davy which was raised during the year and next year we want to get close to £20,000 !

We were also awarded the Keith Burhouse Memorial award at the clubs 2018 awards evening for our services to the Academy.

So, onto the new year and what is in store for 2019?

• Firstly it's the annual fans forum which will be held on Monday 14th January at the John Smiths Stadium 7.30pm start, our confirmed guests so far are Huddersfield Giants and England star Jermaine McGillvary,
Huddersfield Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis and Rugby League world magazine editor and League express reporter Matthew Shaw further guests to be confirmed soon.
The event will once again be kindly hosted by the Giants' matchday announcer Tim Burton.
Admission is FREE for HGSA members, under 16's and Giants season card holders (please bring proof) all other guests are £2, all proceeds go back to the club to aid junior and academy development.
We will be having a raffle draw on the night and an auction for a signed 2019 playing shirt in the lead up to the event.

• Our 1st speaker meeting of 2019 will be Giants head coach Simon Woolford who will be joining us at Turnbridge WMC on Monday 21st January, with a 7.30pm start, Simon will discuss all aspects of pre-season, recruitment, and his thoughts and hopes for the 2019 season and answer any questions you may have.
Admission as always is open to everyone with HGSA members admitted free and £1 for non members.

• Tuesday 5th February sees Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares join us for our February meeting, Chris will be explaining who and what the charity is all about, again Admission is free for members and £1 non members with a 7.30pm start.

• Saturday 9th February sees us take on the Catalan Dragons and for those supporters who aren't travelling to the game we will be hosting a social event at the Shoulder of Mutton pub in Lockwood, there will be a meal option and the game will be screened, this event is not finalised yet and further details will be announced nearer the time, if you think you may be interested please let us know so we have an idea of numbers involved.

• Tuesday 5th March we will be joined by Huddersfield's grade 1 match officials, Chris Kendall and Michael Mannifield who will (hopefully) explain the pro's and con's of being a modern matchday official as well as answering any questions regarding officiating in the modern game, 7.30pm start.

If you have any questions or require further information please contact us.

The fans forum last night was brilliant and very well attended, well done to all the panellists and HGSA for making it possible
If Wakefield Wildcats were playing at the bottom of my garden, I'd draw the curtains

Things I can remember than I can can share:

Jerry had ankle ops and not really trained with squad. Played on Sunday without an injection for first time in four years.
Jerry has had wisdom teeth out and Thewlis told us a very funny (if youre not Jerry) about it

Matt Shaw talked about his pre-season day and how much he hurt. He spoke about how intense it was and how he found out it was only at 70% intensity when they ramped it up to 90%. He said that he'll never call a player lazy after that session. He hurt for days afterwards.
Matt said that the club have improved their communication with the press in the last 6 months and that can be seen in the content in the press and magazine. He was invited to the sponsors lunch with other journalists which gave him good access to the players. He didnt agree with the comments on social media about no "media day" as this was it.

Richard spoken about many things, about interaction with the fans, about ST sales (similar to last year) and about the success of the Catalan "Free Ticket" He had numbers around the success of it as it directly equated to a number of new ticket sales. He answered criticism of the online booking platform and says the team endeavour to call people who are frustrated as its that important to them. He answered criticism of the club shop and how it works . He had numbers to back up the club decisions which substantiated what they are doing. About the community trust, how it was the largest in the game and is doing a great job and how they then transition that into fans attending games.

He spoken about the clubs relationship with the RFL and with Superleague and how things are changing. He spoke about the need to really push on as a sport in 2019 as the television contract is hugely significant.

Andy Kelly was (as always) great. he gave us an insight into the Scholarship and Academy setup and how their aim is to produce Superleague players, explained how the pipeline works and how many we take on per year. He gave us an insight into the 3 peaks challenge they do and that included the senior squad this year was good.

thanks for that

good that jerry may have sorted his ankles out but wont yet be match fit, expect him to play next week at wakey abit more minutes to build him back up

dont agree about the club being better with the press, maybe they have got better with matt shaw/league express thats why he was there! but certainly havent improved with the local paper the examiner.

wonder if they will do another free ticket game versus catalans again, prob not this season but in a few seasons they will
