The pitch invasion by the Thornhill fans at the end was embarrassing. They both went mental.

This isn't 100% confirmed btw, just what it says on forums, no official list of fixtures yet, sounds like the draw has been a farce again, rumour has it it had to be re-done because they left Wath Brow Hornets out!

I'm happy with that. Should progress to round 4.

Donny could be in trouble.
Skolars is best chance of upset.

Saw Thatto Heath beat Castleford Panthers 32-0 at Castleford on Saturday in the previous round, although to be fair, the Panthers did have on off day. Thatto are one of the better teams from the NCL, and although now in Division 1, they shouldn't be taken lightly, as indeed shouldn't any amateur teams. This is their cup final. laugh.gif laugh.gif

They may have a fair following and pity it's not at Bramall Lane.

Rotherham cuckoos are at home the previous day so lets hope they leave the pitch in a reasonable state

I went down to the Post Office yesterday morning for a pad but he had sold out, he said you had just bought his last fifty. I came away with a roll of Izal, it's a good substitute, you don't have to keep turning the pages!!!!

I never thought of that. It'd also come in handy if we play at Castleton Gabriels ground again. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif 25p a sheet should pay for my day out laugh.gif

Our website for those of you who are interested is www.thattoheathcrusaders.org

To be honest a think that most of us were a little disappointed with the draw. We were looking for either a Skolars or Gateshead,that we'd have had a good chance against or a Widnes or Leigh for a good local tie that we could have got a lot of support at.
Still it should be a good day out for our lads and we won't go home wondering what if. Should be an entertaining game for you lot, we tend to throw the ball around a bit and score quite a lot of long range tries too.

A few names you may of come across in our ranks are Darren Woods (former Doncaster, Widnes, Swinton winger), Andy Bailey (Hull FC, York City Knights - forward), Keiron Maddocks (Leigh - hooker), Chris Frodsham (Workington, Swinton - utility back).

Out of interest what do you reckon the crowd is likely to be? I'd imagine we'll bring a couple of coaches.

Recent history (since 2000) of home Challenge Cup draws [Round 3] and crowds are
2000- Gate 1100: Opposition THORNHILL TROJANS
2001 - Gate 778: Opposition EAST LEEDS
2002 - Gate 1000:Opposition LEIGH EAST

2003 - Gate 753: Opposition KEIGHLEY

2004 - Gate 723: Opposition YORK CITY KNIGHTS
2008 - Gate 347: Opposition LEZIGNAN CORBIERES X111(AUDE/FRANCE)
2009 - Gate - 1565: Opposition TOULOUSE OLYMPIQUE



So nothing spectacular there to look for

Depends on what day the match is played. If we're relegated to the Friday night, that'll effect the crowd, especially I would imagine for yourselves. Getting over from St. Helens on a Friday night won't be easy. There should be a decent crowd for a Sunday game, bearing in mind you're a famous name in the amateur game. I'd say a thousand upwards for a Sunday game. Not as many as you'd get at Widnes or Leigh though, sorry. Look forward to seeing you.

I think Rotherham would object to us playing on a Friday night and the groundstaff would not have as long to prepare the pitch for the following day.

A good post by thestatman - thanks

I hope they have a good day out but not too good! I hope also that their supporters aren't too disappointed about how far they are from the pitch.

Let's hope for a dry early spring type day and a good cup tie.
