New Year's Message - By Chairman Chris Noble MBE


Hello to all Supporters, spectators, volunteers, backroom staff and all my co-Directors here at Sheffield Eagles.

Without all of you, this great club would not exist, and I hope each and every one of you had a very Merry Christmas.

The end of the decade is soon upon us and what a year on the pitch we had to see it out. We had a fantastic start to the season and despite our league position being destabilised by some serious injuries, most notably to Matt James & James Glover, the team rallied with some great performances.

My highlight of the season and no doubt everyone’s was our trip to Wembley, defeating Widnes Vikings in the inaugural 1895 Cup Final.

When I voted along with fellow Chairmen & clubs for the 1895 Cup competition to be introduced, I didn’t in my wildest dreams expect to lead Sheffield Eagles out at the National Stadium, what a fabulous day and I’m sure a memory all involved will cherish forever.

What a marker that Mark and his players and backroom staff have laid down as we head into 2020.

May I wish everyone associated with Sheffield Eagles a peaceful and prosperous 2020 and thank you all again for you continued support.

I look forward to seeing you all next season and this time next year we will be looking back at a completed Olympic Legacy Park and a secure and stable home & future for our Sheffield Eagles.
