Basically Hunslet Old Boys and Queens got invited into the premier and Birstall Victoria, Dewsbury Moor and Ossett Trinity into the new Championship because Yorkshire League premier became unworkable. Hunslet Warriors rejoined NCL that year. The Yorkshire league only lasted 2 seasons after that.

I found some 2002-03 seasons the other day and there were 6 teams from Yorkshire League areas:
Morley Borough
Drighlington A
Wetherby Bulldogs
York Groves
Crigglestone All Blacks
Westgate Redoubt

Anyone know which one joined first? Celtic Rooster reading?

 

Dudley Hill A will have been among the first to join as they were booted out of the Yorkshire League for multiple registration anomalies.

Westgate were also kicked out of the Yorkshire League.

No games taking place this week in the premier division as things stand, do the Pennine League operate a three strikes and your out rule?

They do but last season they seemed to show more leeway in the lower divisions.

From an outsider looking in what a bloody mess the game is in we all need to take stock of what we are about think someone needs to apply the turnaque .

Yes we've missed three now but they haven't kicked us out

I wonder if now the Chair of BARLA is embedded on the community board with the RFL has this been clever by the RFL as she is also secretary of the Pennine, where in the past they stood up to the RFL will the Pennine now disassemble itself so the RFL have got what they want by means of Summer Rugby for all

Queens don't seem the side they were for what it's worth. As for Sharlston do they still have players from Featherstone Lions? Might weaken them (or the Lions?) If they ended up summer. But yeah it is a fair question of what to do with clubs too good on the field for regional leagues but not good enough off it for NCL.

Re read what I said. Not good enough off the field. The NCL wouldn't accept them due to not meeting criteria

I would not be so sure if they would as it has been said before they are not playing competitive rugby every week. 

Probably six hard games a season so unless other teams pay players as well they should be beating teams every week

and winning the league every year. But I see they have lost an home game already and although the premier is

in turmoil I think Fryston will win it even though Sharlston have already beaten them but at the time I think some

Fryston players were still at Featherstone Lions.

Finally if Sharlston really wanted to play in the NCL could they not link up with a junior club like Hunslet Old Boys

have done with Parkside Juniors to meet the criteria or would they prefer to be a big fish in a little pond.

The Sharlston chairmen wrote in the League Express,Pennine clubs are defecting to the sunshine league to play rugby at a lower standard.

What would be his response be if the NCL offered Sharlston the opportunity to join would he accept or decline. If he declined what would the real reason be because they would be playing at a lower standard or that they would no longer be a big fish in that drying up pond called the PENNINE LEAGUE.

Easier said than done for Sharlston to just simply link up with a junior club, is there any nearby junior only sections they could link up with?

 

Hunslet Parkside has always been an unofficial junior set up for HOB with players coming through that junior section... they've just now made it official to comply with NCL rules.

 

I think that is Sharlston showing bitterness to being left in the Pennine League with no competition; i'm sure their view on the league would be completely different had they been eligible!

It should be a cracking game on Saturday at Sharlston when they play Fryston in the yorkshire cup semi-final.A real 50-50 game in my opinion!
