News: Hargreaves support Halifax Dukes

11 July 2011

We are giving support to the Halifax Dukes, a local speedway team for this season.

Hargreaves Foundry are supporting Halifax Dukes speedway team for this season. Geoff Hayes, who is the foundry’s Quality Engineer and a former speedway rider himself, manages the Dukes and approached us for our support.

Although we aren’t in a position to offer sports sponsorship we felt that as all the Dukes’ riders were local and that they are the only speedway team with female riders (they have two on the books) they deserved our support.

Their results for the season have been mixed but just this weekend they beat Long Eaton. You can follow their progress on www.halifaxdukes.co.uk.
