THE Silverhawks are good to go.
The Orange Hawks oldboys club will have its second sign on day on Sunday, April 22, at the Newstead Bowling Club from 1pm and already interest in the concept is growing.
“The numbers have been really good,’ Wayne Hill said.
“There is plenty of interest there. People are jumping on board.”
The new found club’s second sign on day will also double as its first general meeting to elect a committee.
Already 30 former players, committee members and supporters have joined the Silverhawks and Hill was hopeful that number will increase.
“You’d like to have as many people join up as possible,” he said.
“The goal was to start off with 30 in the first couple of months and now we’ve got that, we’ve obviously hoping for 50, 60, just to keep going.”
The idea will have lasting benefits not only on rugby league.
The Silverhawks are aiming to help the fledgling Orange Hawks netball club as well as both the junior Bloomfield Tigers Rugby League Club and the senior ranks, Orange Hawks in Group 10.
And Hill said anyone is welcome to join.
“I think there’s been a bit of confusion about that,” he said.
“It’s open to all supporters, old committee members, current players, not just old boys of Hawks and Ex-Services. Anyone that supports the Orange Hawks footy club should jump on board.”
A sausage sizzle will also be held on Sunday for those wishing to attend.
