I think its about time we switched to summer rugby.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I think it would be better to start the season in late March and then run to December , avoiding winters weather .

I seem to remember [admittedley 50 years ago] that during the good old day of proper winter rugby,the frost used to set in from around Xmas until towards the end of February.
However i'm sure all teams complrted their fixtures before the required date.

I do recall one memorable end of season weekend when we played Blackpool away on the Saturday and Huyton away on the following day.

Iremember three or four of us having a very good night in Blacpool with George Standedge and Stan Gittins.
They were due to play the next day,we were not.
The results of the games are lost in the mists of time.

It's sometimes good to look back on the expriences of watching Batley over the years.The memories are generally very good[especially the away matches]even though the results may have been disappointing.

Maybe someone else has some to share.

Allegedly when playing at Huyton , Henry Oulton borrowed Geoff Fletcher's wig , to use instead of a ball in the prematch warm up .

Graham Swale was a legend at MP...a brilliant footballer. just a bit misguided.
