DEWSBURY Rams supporters will get the chance to meet the new squad members at next Wednesday’s shirt launch which takes place in the Royal Suite at Tetley’s Stadium.

Neil Kelly’s men are gearing up for the Boxing Day Challenge against Batley Bulldogs and will train early in the evening before attending the launch of the Rams new strip.

The Rams have strengthened their squad with promising 19-year-old centre Harry Woollard joining from Huddersfield Giants, Martin Reilly and prolific winger Rob Worrincy moving from Championship rivals Halifax and Jack Teanby returning to the Rams following a stint with Sheffield Eagles, so there should be plenty of interest for Dewsbury supporters as preparations gather pace for the new season.

The new home strip, along with a large range of other Rams merchandise, will be on sale on the evening and supporters will also get chance to hear updates on how pre-season is progressing.

Dewsbury will be bidding to end a five year losing streak in the traditional Boxing Day derby when they welcome Batley to Tetley’s Stadium in 12 days time.

Dewsbury’s last win over Christmas came in 2011 when they triumphed 28-6, while Batley recorded a fifth straight success last season, winning 28-18.
