New Scoreboard?

14 February 2015 - 07:03 PM

Does anyone know if we are still looking to buy an electric scoreboard? I heard a few whispers that one would be in place for the start of this season, but the everything seems to have gone quiet.

Independent Travel Club Hunslet update

08 February 2015 - 08:27 PM

Just to keep fans up to date, the Independent Travel Club (based at The Woodman pub in Batley Carr) bus to the Hunslet away match is now full, but organisers are looking at running a second bus if the demand is there.

At £1 for members and for £3 non members, can you ignore this offer? More updates to come forthwith!

Overseas signings

24 January 2015 - 02:16 PM

Interesting to see so many of our rivals signing up players from the Australian second grade competitions during this close season. Workington have just snapped up a second highly-rated forward from the NSW Cup.

Thinking back, I believe that the last player we signed directly from overseas was Shad Royston - over a decade ago.

Bearing in mind the fact that the majority of imports prove very successful at our level, it leaves me wondering if our club simply has a policy of not recruiting from Down Under. Alternatively, is it just too expensive for us to consider?

Xmas quiz teaser

Here's one for the anoraks;

Since 1988, three players of exactly the same name (first name and surname, for any bright sparks) have turned out for Batley. What name do this trio share?
