    Normanton at Featherstone

    I would have thought that you would have worn your Mankini just to show those soft sods from Yorkshire what a proper Lancastrian is made of Brent.

    New season - it's finally here!

    Match off. Wow, I did not think that Mayfield had so much influence in the NCL.

    Fund Raising

    I think that we might have missed a golden opportunity. WE should have locked the gates at the close of the Dales wonderful draw with Spurs and made them pay to get out. On a serious note though I hope that we start the season off with a win on Monday night.

    Challenge cup 2018

    If that is correct then once again the BBC have got it wrong. The BBC had Valley winning 30 v 0

    Not such a good start with a home defeat in the Challenge cup.

    Dale match off. Pitch waterlogged.

    No 10. Cockle picking at low tide. PS. I did not know you had a Mankini Brent. Don't for get to put it on the correct way round.

    Dale match off. Pitch waterlogged.

    I have Just done some digging and teams in the EFL are not allowed plastic pitches. They are in the process of discussing their use. It is a crazy situation that the three clubs at the top of the league fighting to get into the EFL all have plastic pitches. If they win promotion as the rules currently stand they would have to replace them with grass in order to be promoted. if they refused they would be relegated. Now how stupid is that. The cost of £300,000 to change from plastic to grass is a difficult cost for them to bear. It is also thought that league One and Two clubs would support their introduction.

    Dale match off. Pitch waterlogged.

    I don't know if the Dale would be allowed to install an artificial pitch but that might be the long term solution. Anyone know the rules and regulations ?

    A sad news week

    Its a very sad week as a result of the news of two of Hornets best supporters. First came the passing of Ray Myers (Mr Rochdale Hornets) and then the sad news of the death of the wife of Geoff Hurst (Christine) one of Hornets best supporters. I hope their passing is marked by the club.

    Beverley info?

    Hi Ken I will try to remember to save the programs that I get during the coming season for you. That's presuming that they are of any use to you. I would sooner you have them rather than throw them away. All the best for the New Year and keep up the good work.

    Money Trouble?

    Oh so you can afford a pot. I have to do with a hole in the ground.

    Money Trouble?

    I always thought that you were loaded Brent. Get your hand in your back pocket and peel a few million off for the sake of the team. I would match it if you did but I am awaiting my pension coming through

    Last season we had a large number of the previous seasons under 18's coming into the team. It was a large step up but they performed very well. Another year on and we might be a little stronger. I think that this season promises to be even better than last year with so many good teams. Siddal will always be strong. Thatto Heath were great last year. Watch out for Hunslet Parkside who powered their way to promotion. But as Davo5 has posted we are always the victims so If Mayfield don't win the league its because all the referees have conspired against us again. (Are you OK with that Davo5) I think Siddal will come back from last seasons disappointment and just take the crown. Anyone any other thoughts ?
