Topics I've Started

Away Shirt?

27 January 2015 - 12:33 PM

Only a few weeks untilt he start of the season - any ideas when the away strip is to be unveiled?

 

Paid my tenner for my name on it, so am quite looking forward to seeing what its like.


Game likely to be on?

17 January 2015 - 02:02 PM

Forecast to be very cold tonight and then not to get above freezing until early afternoon, and with widespread ice due to todays rain - what are the chances the game will go ahead? Are the covers on / surrounding roads / terraces gritted?

Season ticket vouchers

Got my season ticket today and it has 5 special offer vouchers at the back, but doesnt say what the special offers are.

Anyone know?

What was your first ever Batley game?

24 November 2014 - 12:27 PM

Been thinking recently how quickly time seems to pass by, and tried to recollect how long ive been following the club.

 

If memory serves me right, the first game i attended was West Hull at home in the Regal Trophy in 1989, it was November and I remember having my first ever Bovril that day from the souvenir / burger van at the top end of the ground on the grass bank with the ten foot drop behind it (those were the good old days before health and safety)

 

I recall we won the game comfortably and I left with 2 new sporting heroes in Mark Scott and Paul Geary, frostbite and a love of bovril and have been a regular ever since.

 

So 2015 will be my 26th year as a Gallant Youth / Bulldog - you get less for murder these days!

 

Anyone else remember their first match?


A missed opportunity

22 November 2014 - 06:42 PM

Went to the Batley lights switch on tonight, the town was heaving, have not seen that many people in the town in a long time.

Fox's giving away biscuits, local group advertising their panto, even the church opposite the market opened its doors giving away tea and coffee and filling their collection plate.

I was handed leaflets for a Bradford season ticket and a Giants one, and saw kids lining up to have photos with the Huddersfield Town mascot.

Absolutely no presense from our club at a huge event in the town.

And we constantly debate why we cant get people through the gates.

Very dissapointing.
