I'm not doubting they will be good players in the future, but they don't have enough experience playing first team at semi professional level. It's not just the Leigh players we have well over a third of our squad with minimal if not none semi pro first team experience which gets found out like we did last year.
If we signed 4 players on loan into a squad to help bulk it to blend into our squad which has lots of experience it would be a good move. But we have added inexperience onto inexperience which gets found out. Players with 100's of games at this level will likely out perform you, if with less talent.
Plenty of other players make the step up, they all have to start somewhere.
What is wrong with giving people a chance?
We all wanted Cresta as a coach, we have to trust in what he's doing.....
He hasn't let us down before. I'm sure he raided the Ameteur game then too....
would love a Saturday evening, however its not Barrows choice, its the RFL's! All Barrow can do is state when we would prefer to play and hope they listen. What a day that would be...local game during the day followed by Raiders match in the evening and no hangover on the Monday..go for it BoD...lol
I don't know if you'd have much recollection of the raiders games tho lol.
Let me start by saying i am happy for everyone who has come away positive about the future of the club as this is your club.
I may get criticized for reading between the lines and asking the questions that others think but don't ask but as I have said many times before my concerns has always been for the long term survival of the club.
Commitments have kept me away from attending games this year other than a couple of the early friendlies and doubt over attending next years games brings me to the conclusion to step back and no longer concern myself with the club.
On a final note I will sum up 2013
Previous AGM all came away feeling very positive for the future of the club
Followed by an announcement in the evening mail of a financial crisis at the club
A financial crisis meeting was held and all came away feeling positive for the future
Next was an announcement of a cash flow crisis
The clubs position was at all times predictable
So how did the club get out of the 2013 mess ? the accounts show that short term loans and a re mortgage of the ground got the club through followed by a disastrous season seeing the club relegated.
This is not a negative post but reality which no one appears to want to listen too.
Good luck to the club for the future and despite the digs from a few on here I have enjoyed the banter and hope everyone the best for the 2015 season.
If you'd of been there all would of been explained.
I honestly think you knew what was coming and after your months of drivel you didn't have the face to turn up and but put back in your place.
You get the digs as of the drivel you post nothing else.
You've tried your best to turn "fans" against the current bod some of which have listened.
Lee is right out club needs every fan onside now more than ever so help instead of hinder.
While not quoting specific figures you still manage to stir the pot!
If you want these questions answered why didn't you just ask a friend (if you have one who is a debenture holder) to bring them up at the meeting?
Maybe the figures ain't quite what Neil expected so he's done a about turn and isn't attending the agm, maybe he has also passed the bullets to somebody else and asked them to pull the trigger. We will never know as he's not able to attend the meeting.
I've not seen the accounts yet but I'm sure when people see them at the agm they "won't" bury their heads.
I've never known anybody who supposedly have so much love for a club want a bod to fail so much.
