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

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.

Summer bash fixture

Dewsbury on Sunday 24th 1245 kick off.

Club mascot

Came across this picture for the summer bash on facebook.

All the mascots look good, in full kit all matching.

Then theres ours, in a shirt from 2013 with red shorts that dont match and look like they came out of lost property.

Whats going on? The national media see these photos - doesnt portray our club very professionally.

Forum advertising concern

13 November 2014 - 09:33 AM

Saw the below ad when browsing the forum the other day - in light of current troubles, is it really appropriate?

Never known any religious group advertise in this way and it left me a little uneasy.

Any moderator care to comment why this has been allowed?
