The clubs still here since 1975-76 in Lancashire (excluding Barrow, Oldham and Rochdale)

Pilkington Recs
Wigan St Patricks
Crosfields
Widnes St Maries
Halton Simms Cross
Leigh Miners Rangers
Latchford Albion
Blackbrook
Eccleston Lions
Woolston Rovers
Folly Lane
Rylands

Not many outside of Warrington and St Helens

Don't know when the St Helens and Widnes teams joined but St Patricks started open age (they are older as a youth club) in the 60s and Leigh Miners Welfare a little later. Many of the Warrington clubs are old. Sadly Bold Miners would have been on that list too

Teams used to change names as they moved their headquarters and many of us who have followed the amateur game has it unfolded can put new names to old one without looking in a book for a family tree..


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

Let's rephrase the question. Would you enter Myton into a winter league that only had 10 fixtures if it were the right playing standard and pull out of the NCL to do so?

Hull Premier division used to run with less than 10 teams years ago (Look in your book or phone a friend)

Bowes, Bentley aren't switching to summer, what is happening if you'll listen, Bentley GC have played out of Wheatley Hills RUFC for the past few years, Wheatley have players in their Ranks like Johnny Woodcock, Tom Buckenham and a few more who have played at pro level, Bentley are simply going to give these and a few other players a summer jolly.

They're entering two summer teams (they only field one in winter) and one of the sides is in division 1 which isn't exactly the level for a jolly

9 this season of which 2 pulled out early.

I think the Yorkshire (but not North West) part of the RLC was becoming proper divisions by the end, the east division the last season and some of the premier divisions in years before were up to 8 teams which isn't unheard of in winter. I still think clubs were put off from switching by the lack of a strong set up, until this year I think that still was a factor in Yorkshire to a lesser degree.

I don't think 10 games in a row May to July of which 7 or 8 will go ahead can fairly be compared to say a 14 game league plus four cups spread over seven months, even if more teams and games is preferable.

I can assure you Bentley arnt joining for a '' Summer Jolly '' as you put it. The side will be made up by the majority of the current winter players and the club as a whole is looking forward to the transition across.

No it isn't. Not going to respond further to that as not fair on the other posters here to have a pointless slanging match
