CALLING all Roughyeds fans who fancy themselves as a dab hand at taking live images on mobile phones.
Because Dave Murgatroyd is on hols and Dave Naylor will be up on the gantry filming the official match video, the club will be minus a club photographer at Sunday’s game against West Wales Raiders at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Murgy, however, came up with an idea to kill two birds with one stone to throw the photographer’s job open to fans and at the same time to involve supporters in a spot of photographic fun with a prize at the end of it for the best action shot taken.
Due to RFL rules and regulations and ground-safety issues there have to be certain restrictions though.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN FANS ENCROACH BEYOND THE BOUNDARY WALL AND TAKE UP POSITION INSIDE THE WALL AND ON THE TOUCHLINE.
SECONDLY, YOU CAN ONLY USE YOUR MOBILE PHONE; USE OF CAMERAS IS NOT PERMITTED UNLESS YOU ARE A CLUB OR MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHER WITH OFFICIAL RFL ACCREDITATION.
You can submit up to five images apiece (instructions below) and the club’s media team will judge which, in their opinion, is the best.
The media-team decision will be binding and final.
The prize will be two tickets for a home game of your choice between now and the end of the season.
If the winning entry goes to a season-ticket holder he or she can take up an option of two places in the hospitality suite at a remaining home game this season, to be arranged in advance.
So come to Sunday’s game armed with your mobiles and take your pics . . . it should be a whole lot of fun !
