Stags prepare for future with new home in Mirfield

MIRFIELD STAGS have formally unveiled their new Hillrich Park home.

Following months of groundwork at the former Taylor Hall Lane Playing Fields, the club has put the finishing touches to its new base. It has invested significantly in the venue, creating two rugby league pitches.

One of the fresh surfaces is surrounded by a perimeter fence, designed to bring the club in-line with National Conference League criteria, ahead of a future bid to join the competition.

Mirfield-born businessman Danny Matharu (pictured below with Ryan Sparks), has seen his Hillrich Care company claim official naming rights for the next 12 months.

Coun Martyn Bolt (Con, Mirfield) joined club officials and members of the workforce who helped the Stags’ dream become a reality in declaring the new-look venue open last Saturday.

This came just hours before Mirfield booked their place in the Yorkshire Men’s League Division One Grand Final by defeating Hull Wyke at their new home.

Mirfield Stags managing director Sparks said: “We have come an awful long way in just over 10 months of existence, so Saturday was certainly a proud moment for everyone involved in the club.

“With the help of our fantastic sponsors and the continued backing of Mirfield locals, we have been able to create a new long-term home for rugby league in the town.”
