Does anyone know why the game was a 6.00pm kick off?



We've regularly played our easter Monday home games at this time.

Would you have preferred 7.30?

It looks to me like a poor decision, even if we regularly have done this in the past.

The crowd was small and the bar receipts must have been down, add to this the additional cost of flood lights....all when the club needs money!!

I'm all for tradition, but yesterday didn't make sense.

I thought it was so that the masses thronging to the game would not get mixed up with the thousands attending the Coal Run?

Looking at the attendance, they all decided on the Coal Race & Sky Sports!!

For the record yesterdays game was ment to have been a double header with the legends match kicking off at 3pm for starters then the Dews v Batley afterwards which had been agreeded by both clubs. Sadly because of the recent weather the earlier match had to be abondoned at short notice.
