Doesn't that just take the biscuit?

In Topic: What was your first ever Batley game?

24 November 2014 - 12:51 PM

My first match would have been approximately 1971-2.

I remember drawing a picture of the game at Gregory Street Infant Skool afterwards. The opposition wore yellow shirts (and so may have been Cas?) and won.

The experience was clearly underwhelming, as my second Batley match wasn't until the "Centenary Game" against Fulham in 1980.

I remember Fulham (in their first season) needed to win the game to gain promotion to Div 1, but the Gallant Youths beat them 10-8. Fulham scored a late try, but missed the conversion.

"What a team!" I thought (meaning Batley), "I'll buy a season ticket."

And so the journey began...

Or perhaps we could place it in a secure vault and the last one left gets it. (l acknowledge that there is a Simpson's plot in there!)

M*A*S*H used it earlier...

I heard that we were playing hardball on that one. Dewsbury had made us a decent offer to take him, but we were holding out for more!

Dewsbury will need to persuade BSJ to lower his agent's fee.

Or perhaps we could have a Dual Registration arrangement.

I cant see anyone touching them and if by some miracle they dont win automatic promotion the RFL will change the rules.

Not automatic promotion.

As I understand the proposed system, the top four from our division (hard to envisage anything other than London, Bradford, Leigh & Fev) will play against the bottom four of Superduper League to sort out who starts SL in 2016.

It's going to be tough to get into SL!
