That is exactly what i said money was not the problem why we could not sign a halfback ( then it was re Ford). However i did not say money was not a problem generally as everyone knows it is.
Hi Kevin, Have the club thought about linking up with a University.
Please see the attached job advertisement for a Lead Club Coach at the University of Birmingham which is part time with a salary in the range £21,666 to £23,276. With potential progression once in post to £26,946 a year. Salary will be paid pro rata.
A link up with a University opens up the opportunity of signing a 'full' time player/half back (coaching at a University and playing for Batley).
The link up might also open up the possibility of a second team (this opinion is based on not knowing the standard of University/Student Rugby League).
