Youll have to point out the Dewsbury Supporters who heralded Pryce's arrival as the second coming cos i dont remember many  :tongue:

Exactly. I just seem to remember mild interest at the time, but kind of took it for granted that we'd be getting yet another player who might /might not be any good for us and wasn't in it for the long haul (because if he was any good he'd be off to another club at the end of the season).


Also, i think it's because he's not a local lad that he gets stick. We speccies love a local lad in the ranks - hence James Craven's Barmy Army in the main stand last week. We'll cheer them to the rafters if they're from Shaw Cross or Celtic!


I think any apathy is due to the fact that we've not got a very settled team; the fans don't really know the players because at times it's like a conveyor belt out there!

"A four-hour tour of a local hll: Pudsey, Tingley, Hanging Heaton, Shaw Cross, Batley, Dewsbury, Chickenley, Earlsheaton, Gawthorpe, Horbury, Castleford, Pontefract, Normanton, Hemsworth, Fitzwilliam, Sharlston, and Streethouse.

Hard towns for hard men".

Don't think I saw him as the second coming (although James Craven has the right initials), but I did se him as a big signing in every sense. Put my head above the parapet here, but I still think he will come good and be a revelation next season.
