Thursdays big announcement
Posted 01 August 2012 - 12:41 PM
Announcing a deal with maybe Leeds would be a big coup for the club, particularly if we get some of their young starlets in return.
If it is linked to this, I hope it goes better than the alleged link up we have had with Huddersfield in the past, which Jermaine and Alex Brown aside, was a waste of time.

Could also bebefit clubs in our division financially as surely we'd get a slice of the super league clubs income?
Does appear though that the powers that be are wanting feeder clubs for the elite league.

Initial thoughts: Not keen on the idea. Could end in younger fans moving away from the Championship side to go watch their more glamorous bigger brother. I for one think Batley should be it's own club, with it's own team, in it's own right.
For it to work out we would need to be paired up with Leeds, but if this does happen I can see it being Wakefield because of the Kear connection. I think having Bradford or Giants as our BIG TEAM would be a waste of time.
So for now, NOT A FAN. I For one would need some persuading.

Certainly quashes my feeder club theory!

He did with Huddersfield or did you mean " I just don't think our chairman would ever go for such an arrangement again"
When did this happen? I'm very forgetful, maybe you could be remind me? As BatleyfanAndy recalls, we had an arrangement to take some players from Huddersfield on dual registration, but I don't remember us becoming their feeder club. We're certainly not now, anyway. When did our feeder club status end? Perhaps you could write your answer in bold print, with the key words highlighted in a bright colour.

If it doesn't include VAT you've been done.
I'd heard we've had a bid to take over Dewsbury Rams accepted (£8.47 btw). We are going to rename them the Dewsbury Puppies, feeder club to the mighty Doggies!
