The Huddersfield Rugby League: A Lasting Legacy
1864 – 1914 – 2014

In 2014 Huddersfield Giants RLFC celebrates:
• its 150th anniversary
• the centenary of the club's 'Team of All Talents', one of only three teams ever to win all four available trophies in one season.
• the centenary of Albert Rosenfield's 80th try in one season.

2014 is also, of course, the centenary of the start of World War I.

To commemorate these anniversaries, Huddersfield Giants is embarking on a heritage programme. At present the programme has achieved stage 1 funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. For the project to proceed in its entirety stage 2 funding is essential. This is wherer hte supporters come in. To achieve stage 2 funding the project requires letters of support and evidence of volunteers who are prepared to contribute to the scheme.

Should stage 2 funding be achieved, it is intended that the programme will include:
• oral history recordings of supporters' and past players' memories, of the Huddersfield club and of local amateur clubs
• training of interested people to become interviewers
• collecting and archiving of memorabilia
• training of interested people in archiving
• a heritage website, including an online museum
• exhibitions, including one at the Tolson Museum and one in a designated heritage room at the Galpharm Stadium
• a scheme of work for local primary schools based on the history of the club, with emphasis on the World War I period
• loan 'reminiscence boxes' for local organisations, particularly those catering for older people
• additional features suggested by supporters of local rugby league and other interested parties, either online or in face-to-face consultations.

The 'Huddersfield Rugby League: A Lasting Legacy' is looking to work in partnership with local individuals and organisations that have a passion for the heritage of Huddersfield and of Rugby League.
