Sponsorship Officer

Ali has been with the team since it started in 2016 and is part of the Club Committee as Sponsorship Officer

Name: Liaqat Ali

Position: Played Hooker, but trying to play in the backs now, hopefully at number 12.

When did you join #TeamHunter?

Been part of the Hunters from the start. I was at the first ever training session November 2016

What was your first training session with The Hunters like?

Really enjoyed the first training session as most of us were all new to rugby and it was great learning how to play together and develop as a player.

And what made you come back?

Enjoyed the banter and was keen to play a new sport.

What is your favourite memory so far of being a Hunter? The first ever game against Castleford RUFC was a great memory, it was the first time we ever played a match and was great to be part of that moment.

Why do you think there is a need for Inclusive rugby?

I’m not sure there is a need for inclusive rugby, but I suppose it helps people new to the game come and enjoy the sport. Hopefully we can progress to play in a local league in the near future.

Finally, to anyone reading this who is thinking of joining with experience or no experience playing rugby, but who haven’t yet decided to #showusyourtackle, what would you say to them?

In less than 2 years we’ve had so many new players that have joined, they probably had the same reservations, but if you ask any of them they will tell you it was a great decision. Bite the bullet and come along.
