Apologies for banging the same drum over and over again, but I am seeing other clubs handling social media in a much more professional manner than Leigh Centurions are currently doing. My brother recently sent a link from todays challengers Newcastle Thunder https://www.youtube.com/embed/lk3fuSLWLjk?autoplay=1
In terms of output this is a slick media presentation and available on the Youtube platform. With a presenter that is clear and precise unlike Mickey O'Gara and his 91 subscribers.

Leigh have made huge strides on the field, with Chris Chester available for interviews in Morrisons on a daily basis and regular snippets from the very debonair Adrian Lam. Leigh primarily use a standard website template on Wordpress which appears to be down more than it is up, but the main material appears on Twitter which is not my favourite platform, but is better than following a game via Ceefax (People of certain vintage). I have checked out Facebook and that appears to offer a better platform than Twitter with very similar content.

The RFL have brought in IMG to improve the image of the game but it is very important that the individual clubs up their game in this respect. I applaud the efforts of Newcastle (Full-time and Media content) York (community ties and new stadium) and Keighley (Splashing the cash at the right time).
Bradford and Widnes despite their rich heritage appear to moving in the opposite direction and if two divisions of 10 becomes a reality, are likely to exiled to amateur clubs.

Social Media is here to stay and it requires a regular daily update in content to keep the fans engaged. We should be able to get our information from the club and not from trawling Yorkshire and Hull regional papers who have far more articles on Rugby League than the North West equivalent papers who are Football centric.

SS, I agree absolutely with your comments.

Congratulations to Newcastle. This is a very slick, professional and informative presentation. I'm envious. I wish we had something as good.

The question has to be, why haven't we?- (got something as good as this).

I'm fairly sure that Newcastle would exchange today's result for who won the Social Media.
How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

Oh very good. Does not mean that we shouldn't strive to be better in every department.

In fairness Sep, as Derek said on the Dockhouse Rugby Show, Leigh rely on devotees giving their own time up to fulfil a whole range of functions for the club free of charge. Were those heroes on the payroll it would lessen DB's pocket money, money spent on, in everyone's opinion, the best team ever to grace the second echelon.

If (IF) everything goes to plan there will be more central funding for Leigh in SL next year and then maybe a few stipendiary social media staff. For now Bongser would rather not go with Newcastle's model - their move to full time now sees them below newly part time London (and, according to the latter's forum, London tell no one neauwt).

It's a chilly day in Hell when Bongser disagrees with a word Jack G says, but this time (brrrrrrr) he's siding with Bart.

Indeed we should but I'd rather us carry on with the task and get back into SL. The increase of a SM presence would then be paid for an employee and not reliant on exceptional volunteers.

At our club we have always had a great set of volunteers who help out and they have been trying to get the word out there
First thing I’d do if we go up though is employ a proper head of media
We need to increase our fan base
