York will be smarting at not signing spicer .

Think you'll find there are one or two other options for us in the pipeline, however agree it's a shame as really rate Spicer but he did same last season and no doubt succeeded in getting his wages up using us as the lever.

I hope we don't sign Bossy. I am sure there are better centres in the Wakefield under 20's than him. I hope we can get Bretherton back though as he didn't want to leave in the first place.

No, no, no. Dewsbury pay their players in penny whistles and bags of Seabrooks crisps. All other clubs are paying astronomical wages to players that they can't possibly afford.

Bretherton and Preece are both quality and I hope we (batley) can keep them both for next season.

I'd take Bretherton back, but we don't need Preece as we have Craven!

Very versatile, would do a job anywhere for the team. I think only position he didnt play for us in his first spell was 9 such as his versatility. Like i said hed suit Glenns style of play in attack and strengthen our defence in the 2nd row or centres. Hed probably come back too if the money was decent,as whats already been said,he was pushed to leave! Everyoone at the club would love him back.

A top guy too is Brevvi,a local lad and hed add great experiece for the younger lads. I remember 2 of our former coaches who always said Alex should of played in SL. Hes the type of Jon Wilkin of the Championship...

Be great if Glenn signed him up.

would andy bostock be a good signing for us again?,heard hes looking for a new club for next season,quality player

Big, Injury prone and a Featherstone reject will put him on Halifax's wishlist although would be a good signing for Batley running down the slope.

Signing Bossy would be a big step backwards IMO. There's better centre's and second rowers out there than him!

Keep him. He didnt give a s**t about us a few years ago, why should he be any different now? We can do better and I dont want to see him back in a Rams shirt. We probably cant afford his pie bill anyway.

:lol: priceless!!!

Poor tackler and a dodgy shoulder would keep him out of the pack I reckon.

Poor tackler????

Well I've seen almost every game he's played in a Fev shirt. poor tackler is not a criticism i would level at him. he has his weaknesses like every other player. poor tackling has not been one of them whilst he's played at Fev johnny me owd cocker!!

Robin, just ignore them, Bostock was a very good player for us, strong runner, good tackler, had a few injuries but I bet Glenn Morrison would have had him back at the Rams given half the chance. Watched him on TV on Thursday and he looked just as good as when he played for us.

I've always said that - prop in the mould of graham (ex StH) - only much prettier of course. :lol:

He'll play anywhere grumpy. that's one of his strengths. very strong in the opponents 20.

The look of fear in his face if he gets the ball in a gap with 80m to go to the line is there for all to see!! His days as a back are over. but in the pack he's there on merit and repeatedly proves his worth as a forrad.

Can't understand the negative comments from the dewsbury supporters. Gave good service to us for a number of seasons and scored a lot of tries. Would love him back at Dewsbury.

I agree rambo, I rated him when he was with us (although I don't think he ever realised his potential, because he was used as a back instead of an impact forward) and like robin says, he hasn't the pace to be a back anymore ... can still do an awful lot of damage as a forward though. He was/is injury prone, and i have to agree with BSJ on that score, but bringing on from the bench might help. I'd not be disappointed if fev changed their minds and let us have him.
