Can you please link me to the relevant document that states this?

Clubs are only allowed to recruit up to 6 players outside their catchment area. Link

Can we see a Wimbledon style club come back in Oldham

As I've said on the Oldham forum I am flipping this on it's head and viewing it as Salford being our feeder team.

As long as we can dump them once we're in the position that I feel we should be then I can't see a problem.

Now I don't know whether there will be pressures to keep us in a lower league, but at the slightest inkling of such tactics then we must sever all links.

Championship clubs will become druggies - dependant on a Super League fix and I can't see the RFL giving any counselling.

The next step will be to fom new clubs in the Heavy Woollen, Manchester & The Rhubarb Triangle

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

We are nostalgic to have no ground again...
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Everyone is entitled to their own view of course. Personally I'm not sure why we are any different to the other Championship clubs who have similar arrangements with SL clubs. Are all these clubs finished too?

We are still ORLFC, still have our great history to look back on and I am trying to be optimistic for our future.

Like BigRed, I have followed them home and away for over 40 years so I can't blame my optimism on youth!!!

We get up to 6 players from Salford.
We get access to training facilities etc.
We don't get much else as Salford are skint.
Salford get to keep 6 (up to) players who they think have SL potential but who are not quite ready yet.
Salford get to dump the other players who they used to employ to make up the numbers in the Under 20's (or was it 21's?) team.
We get to entice young players with chance to get in the shop window for Salford.
We are still called Oldham.
We are still skint.
We still have CH as owner/chairman/dictator.
We can dump Salford when they are demoted and I win the euro-millions.

I am trying to be positive about this. If Salford fold, does this mean we take their place in SL?

So in Salfords case does Oldham become their catchment area?
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

But is it a real problem if thats the case? Salford could get 6 young players already? (along with every SL club).

If thats the case it would be more worthwhile loaning a dozen players out to 4 clubs.

Yeah but now they can get unlimited Oldham-ites and up to six from the rest of the UK.

They had an immediate fan base of around two thousand after their original club moved 60 miles north.

Oldham has a fanbase of around 400 hardy (if bl00dy miserable) souls who still have a club to support in Oldham.

If they don't like it, they have Waterhead or St Annes to support at the level any 'AFC Oldham' club would potentially crop up at.

Plus they wouldn't have a ground... Why am I even arguing this?

So 400 happy hardy souls don't count.
