I've started work on stats project, with the aim of creating a spreadsheet containing comprehensive appearances and points details for every player to have played for the club since 1996. James Taylor has offered to help out and we'll be starting to input the data soon.
I am working from LPL's RL Yearbooks and am currently negotiating (with my old employer!) access to archive issues of League Express.
The sheet will record: Starting appearances, Substitute appearances, Total appearances, Tries, Goals, Drop-Goals and Points for Cup (Northern Rail, Trans-Pennine, Regal Trophy, Challenge Cup etc.) League (NFP, NL1, Championship etc.) and Total (sum of League and Cup). There will be also be a year-by-year breakdown.
Once I have a complete sheet I will upload it for everyone to access (and enjoy!?).
Through League Express, I can go back to around 1992 - and the aim is to work backwards to then once I've done the summer era - but can anyone suggest a source for years before then? Is Rothmans my best bet?
Any other thoughts before I start inputting data?
