Used sensibly the DR system can benefit clubs like town and barrow. If the system is over used i think it is wrong and we all know who are the culprits of that in this league. That is wrong. However as i say if used correctly it can be beneficial IMO. Can you rely on locals only to stay in this league is the big question.

I agree, and most barrow fans have no problem with workington, my concern is, if teams start reducing there squads what path will young lads have, if all the teams in the championship reduced their squads by 5 that would take away 70 places,

clubs should always use the majority of their own players and certainly not reduce their squads by 5 to accommodate DR's. however having the opportunity to bring some to your club in case of injuries or to strengthen key areas can only be good thing. On the other side allowing your squad to be used to give SL reserves game time is just wrong. I don't think any of us can afford to drop out of this league so is the DR such a bad thing if used properly

As you said town4me, if its used for the right purposes, there's nothing wrong with it. But it should be nipped in the bud by the end of the season. For the likes of the CC1 clubs that might get promoted at the end of season, how will it work for them. As most of them are down south, how could they afford to have DR. With travelling expenses and probably putting players up over night, surely they couldn't afford that with the crowds they are getting.

Very good point about the southern teams. It's okay for Hunslet and the rest of the Yorkshire mob.

I've heard rumours that Lloyd Williams is coming On dual reg from barrow island, he would be a great addition to the squad adding size and pace
