A message from our Chair – David Durbin
A magnificent performance against Saints and now the wheels appear to have come of our wagon. Individual errors are certainly taking there toll at the moment and this is clearly affecting the teams confidence. This is when the true supporters stand behind the team and offer them every encouragement as we move into the second half of the season and this start’s at Swinton on Sunday when we can hopefully we can get our season back on track! Let’s make some noise and become that vocal eighteenth man in support of our Panthers! Talking of support, we are still in need of any pre-loved rugby shirts, shorts, hoodies etc so if you can help please do not hesitate to contact me on 07790 852196 to arrange collection or you can bring any items down on home match days to any of our stalls. Your generosity has enabled us to continue to support the Panthers Squadbuilder as you may have seen from our recent donation of £5000 during the Saints game. Other opportunities to support us are by attending our monthly quizzes on the last Wednesday of every month at the Ivy House, entering our Match Day Dining competition and making donations on match days. All of which is never taken for granted and very much appreciated.

See you all at Swinton.
