140 year anniversary “mishmash” revealed
Hull KR are proud to unveil a striking “mishmash” encapsulating 140 years of club history into one image which is available for supporters to buy now.
Commissioned by the club ahead of our anniversary year, the piece has been designed by talented illustrator Alex Bennett, who is famed for his ‘Footy Mishmash’ poster series working with Man City, West Ham and many more.
The piece has been put together with suggestions from supporters following an appeal in January, with the final version taking over 1,000 painstaking hours of drawing with Alex delighted with the outcome.
“I’m excited to complete my first ever Rugby League project. When the Robins approached me last year, I was excited to get involved in a club with such a deep and fascinating history. I hope I have done all the stories, and memories justice and given an accurate representation of all those special moments. Who knows, hopefully I’ll get asked to update it for the 150th anniversary to add a couple of new trophies.”
Hull KR’s Head of Marketing, Craig Franklin, added, “Whilst the club is moving forward and evolving on all fronts, ahead of our special anniversary we wanted to do something to recognise all those characters and people who have contributed so much to our history.
To me supporting a club is about so much more than just the on-field success. It’s the people you stand or sit next to season after season, the funny stories you hear, the cult heroes, that’s what it’s about. It’s nice to be able to recognise some of those unsung heroes, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters that have done so much to contribute to our story, alongside the players we all know and love, who rightly take centre stage. We couldn’t fit absolutely everyone on the final piece, but I think we represent a good cross section of the club, the characters, and everything that makes us so special.”
Supporters can purchase copies of the work online at hullkr.co.uk/140years. A1 prints are available for £30, A2 prints are also available for £25.
Please note the prints do not have 140 years watermark.
