We shouldn't be talking about reducing the punishment, there shouldn't be any punishment.

WELL SAID a bit of common sense should go a long way in this situation

Im going to save Marauder a job and say "this would never have happened in winter, refs were perfect then and never made mistakes".

But yes, common sense should be used and if there is any punishment at all for Siddal it is a disgrace and we all as member clubs should make a stand.

Dissapointing as you say - times are tough for all clubs. 

 

How will the league structure work as potentially at the minute we could see Siddal & BDH relegated? Who would stay / move leagues in this situation?

 

Fingers crossed the teams get sorted as soon as possible and can work towards starting next season.

 

I personally think it should be the highest finishing side in the relegation zone to stay up as a side finishing 4th in the division below it could be a bit too much of an ask for to be thrust into the league above, obviously no disrespect meant to teams this would apply to

yes that's right you did come up midweek but Wath Brow did not rearrange the game BDH said they could not make the Saturday for some reason so the game was played midweek just the same as happened against Mayfield

 

Im sure we had asked for the weekend free at the beginning of the season, as if there was anything in it dont you think we would have been relegated that season? and doubly like leigh east were due to finishing in the bottom 3! To be fair who would be able to get a stronger team to go to cumbria on a tuesday night? if you think that was the case you are seriously deluded

Correct, the club have been punished enough already for having to make the decision to withdraw which I fully agree with, plus this whole debacle would have gone into disrupting lock lanes season too had Siddal decided to turn up!

If you asked for a free weekend why was the game only called of on the Friday night and you made to play on the Tuesday night ? Surely the ncl committee would have changed the fixture list before the Friday if you HAD been given a free week off ??? So I must be deluded !!!
