Milford Marlins Reserves want to play a full season of fixtures not sure yet what the league format will be at the moment. The premier will be a tough division for us but one we think we will be able to compete with most of the teams within it, some will be too tough for us but we want our reserves to be playing at the highest level possible. Our Reserves had a lot of their games called off last season due to opposition clubs not been able to raise a team for our home games which did nieither the team or the club any good. But more than anything we are looking for continuity in fixtures in games that will test our young reserves.

Milford `A` where a decent side a couple of seasons ago.

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

We have possibly our best reserve team we have had for a long time at the moment and a good number of them trained last season both nights which helped. like all 2nd team we suffered with the 1st team taking players which is how it should be but it also puts a bit of pressure on the team regarding competing with the better sides in the league. I am just hoping that with the lack of fixtures last season this does not have a knock on effect and the players do not return when pre-season training starts. I have not heard that many of the players have gone to winter based teams so hopefully they will return in their numbers.

Bramley have no chance whatsoever of gaining a place in CC1 - one simple reason is there are already too many (for the RFL's liking) semi-pro sides in West Yorkshire. The RFL's agenda (rightly or wrongly) is to spread the game nationally. Bramley don't meet the criteria and even if met most of them the biggest one of all is against them - geography. In my opinion the people at Bramley should stop chasing their unrealistic dreams and if they want the club to continue then build the club up as a top class community club with their own facilities.

but there are no teams from yorkshire or cumbria in CC1 next season which must be a first
Success does not consists in never making blunders,but in never making the same one the second time.

Given the need for more viable clubs in CC1, the RFL would snap Bramley's arm off if they got their act together

The RFL banned any heartland clubs from applying

I remain of the view that if Bramley can put in a bid equal to the new applicants then they have a chance ,given their unique history within the game and notwithstanding their geography.

But its a hard ask......

With Bramley playing summer and the two seasons crossing , in the past players were called back to there winter clubs before there season had finished , the last couple of seasons they've been a bit of a Barbarian side with players from Hunslet old boys , Queens and many more teams , they need players for the full season........

Monday was the deadline for applications to the Yorkshire Men's League though I don't know who the lineup is or which of them will go premier. Guess premier will have Bramley, Kippax, Fryston and Birstall in though?
