Have been granted £20k by the Area Committee to enable it to become a hub in the community. Apparently they do not own the club house but have it on a lease from Kirklees Council.

Hi Fred,

Just to set the record straight, Batley Bulldogs pay the lease on the whole estate which is 999years.

I believe that the cricket club are a registered charity - i.e. a not profit organisation, which puts them in pole position in terms of grants and the like.

Regardless when we get the illustrious golden ticket to join the elite division I have my shovel ready to help our board with the midnight car park expansion!

I have a somewhat vested interest in Batley C.C. My uncle built the scoreboard!! Louis Walshaw Steel Fabricators late of Upper Howard St., and my grandad raised the money. Just thought I'd share that!!

Hi Fred,

So if the Bulldogs pay the lease on the whole estate, how come the cricket club are paying the Council to lease the pavilion? - as stated in the story in the Batley news.

Agree with you there Fred, would have thought if the Bulldogs own the lease on the estate, then they should be the beneficiary of any money donated to said estate and should have a say so in what goes on.

The whole scenario sounds like someone is playing cricket in your back garden, and have just got a grant to do up your garden shed. Id want them evicted from my garden and my shed if i hadnt given permission to obtain a grant and got some brass off them too. (thats if id given them permission to play cricket in my garden and use my shed and charged them rent for doing so in the first place).

A few questions need answering there me thinks - sounds like the cricket club are playing there for nothing and not paying their way, and to top it all off are obtaining grants to do up premises that are presumably owned by the rugby club. In this economic climate im surprised if the club arent charging them rent at the very least.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

Probably best not to open this can of worms, Batley RL tried to shaft the Cricket club a few years ago but were left with egg on their faces

Just as well our friends from o/s don't play Rugby League RPH . No doubt you would play a different tune on your fiddle if they did.

I would imagine that Paul Harrison is looking into the situation with regard to the Club's expense and returns. Kevin Nicholas is a solicitor after all!!

As Gary Coyle said, this is a well worn path. The cricket club and bowling clubs are entirely separate entities from Batley Bulldogs, despite the fact that they play on land for which our club pays a peppercorn rent - probably at the rate of something like 1p per year. Let them get on with their own business, and good luck to them if they are able to get their hands on any grant money to improve their facilities - as we have done in the past.
