And Chris burton is still involved at drig. He coached 1sts for a few years and now just a supporter. His lad plays in 1sts. Brassey you can't be anything to do with drig if you don't know who he is

Didn't he coach them when they where in the CMS Yorkshire league?

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Is this the Chris Burton that played at HKR for a while?

Hunslet Old Boys have now withdrawn their application to join the NCL - they feel it appropriate to delay their application in order to further strengthen the Club.

Yes he was there for about seven years or so.

:sclerosis: Just been reading Amateur news in the local paper. It mentions that Saddleworth Rangers will be playing in division one next year subject to appeals from Dudley Hill & Stanley Rangers. It concludes by saying the Prem. Div. will have 14 teams, with the three remaining divisions having 12 teams in each section. How does this affect promotion & relegation?. Has anybody heard anything i.e. who the new team is to make 50 clubs?.

I think it may only be 49 clubs due to Hunslet Old Boys having withdrawn their application for now as Barbara mentioned above. I would imagine that it would mean 11 teams in Division Three unless another club puts in a late application

Was any team knocked back due to the fact that Hunslet Old Boys had applied and all but been accepted. Now that the Old Boys have withdrawn is there a team waiting in the wings who will be put forward or have Hunslet withdrawn too late to allow this to happen ?
