  1. There are some great aerial shots in the "Watersheddings Memories" book
  2. Now the domestic season is completed do you think the"big signing" will be announced?
  3. We have been asked to help make people aware of this. I'm afraid I am not on Twitter so can't post it there, but sounds fun to join in Hi all, Just a quick line about National Sporting Heritage Day, which takes place this Friday, 30th September. We’re going to put out some tweets and FB posts encouraging people to share their special RL heritage memories. This could be a picture of someone at their first game, a photo of a heritage item they’ve got, a memory that is important to them, their first or favourite match, a bit of memorable footage etc. Whatever it is, just something to connect with the heritage of the game. I was hoping that you could help the cause, by retweeting, encouraging your followers to put stuff out, having some memories of our own ready to go on Friday. Any help would be appreciated, it’s a great chance to show off the sport’s amazing heritage! We’ll be using #NSHD2016 and #RLheritage. Tony Collins has very kindly agreed to do a Live Q&A on RL history via social media at 1pm on Friday! We’ll publicise that too. Many thanks for any support you can give! Best wishes, Brigid Brigid Power Rugby League Cares Heritage Programme Manager

  5. Tosh, there were some confidentiality clauses signed
  6. Guess you will at the front of the queue?
  7. It worth remembering that Rugby Oldham was originally set up to source and build a community stadium, which ORLFC would play in. The main purpose was that the ground would be held in perpetuity with a covenant to prevent the fate of Watersheddings happening to the new stadium. With regards to Melrose, the original playing fields on the Ferranti site was bequeathed to the RL by Joseph Platt and again there was a covenant on this. When the Daily Mirror wanted the old transformer works the council did a land swap with the RL for Melrose. Hollinwood as far as I know are tenants. The covenant on Melrose still applies as far as I recall from the early talks. I am sure Geoff Cooke would be able to clarify this better.
  8. I guess we lost the chance to call it "our" when we failed to pay the council what we owed. Perhaps we are lucky they haven't pursued the debt as they would any other business or debt we in they own. Just be few days a few days late paying your Council Tax instalment and watch the 28 day notice whiz through your door.
  9. If you read the other thread, OLI reported he had been gouged - hence the reaction!
  10. What about Grimmer?
  11. What about Grimmer?
  12. I am pretty certain that there is a covenant on there that RL has to be played their. The old Ferrantis ground previous;y had this as it was bequeathed to the RL. When the council did the land swap to get the Daily Mirror on the land the covenant passed over I would think Geoff Cooke from Rugby Oldham could expand and give a more definitive explanation as this was one of the pieces of land considered for a new stadium
  13. Makes sense now looking at the state of the kit, with shirts of former players being used for new signings, loanees etc Got to feel sorry for this supplier. They supply loads of pro clubs all over the country and other sports, then they come up with our well run club!
  14. Reading the thread on merchandise, I hope we are not the club in trouble!
  15. The answer for Oldham is to ensure we finish above Swinton, and then we would have four home matches. Swinton have two fairly hard games in Dewsbury away and Batley at home.
