Skirlaugh v Leigh East

119 posts in this topic

Leigh East said confusion with bus booking, but why wait till 13:55 to advise Skirlaugh. Will the points now go to Skirlaugh, they should do.

Also will Skirlaugh be compensated for the all the food they had prepared and extra bar staff they had got in ??

Disgraceful, totally disgraceful, this should act as Leighs resignation from the league

Surely that can't be right fred, they haven't fulfilled their fixture are you guessing it's to be played next week? It would have been nice for Skirlaugh to win and stay up but with leigh East not turning up for whatever reasons that's not Skirlaughs fault, the NCL will once again be a laughing stock if they back down on this one after weilding the big stick to some clubs in the past. INCLUDING SKIRLAUGH!

Confirmed that game be next week. Was suggested game be played 2moro but for what ever reason this was not possible. Will have to wait and see the official response from Leigh and NCL but are we really surprised.

I think the NCL rules are a minimum £500 fine plus relegation, and the game still has to be played. So regardless of whether they win or lose next week they should be relegated. They will also have to re-apply for membership, so hopefully they have a good reason for not going to Hull.

Welcome to division one!

Think we should wait for the official explanation from the Ncl before deciding easts fate . If the explanation is not good enough then east will have to except the punishment and that will be a sad day for the club . Last time we didn't fullfill a fixture was 23 years ago

Just out of curiosity Mr Chairman what was the reason, lets be honest nobody wants to see you or any other club relegated by default,

What if it's just a simple thing like a coach not turning up?

To be very honest I don't know as I'm no longer involved at the club , spoke to a few players and they said they recirved a text from the coach saying , due to transport difficulties the match as been called off . If that is the reason then the club is not at fault and I'm sure the Ncl will have been in touch with the coach company . Like I said let's wait and see. If east are guilty then the book should be thrown at them quite firmly

Not quite Wombat , I was commenting on a conversation I had with someone who predicted that result .

As for anything sinister Skirlaugh and Leigh East will sort it out who goes down next week on the pitch as it should be .

Don't all secretaries confirm times with the bus company the week preceeding the away trip? The company we use always sends an email to the secretary asking him to confirm the time leaving the club. Mr Chairman - if the lads were sent a text to say the game was cancelled, then Easts must have known quite early in the day, and certainly before the lads turned up at the club. So to not ring Skirlaugh until 13.55 hrs is a bit much.

I think we would have frantically rang around to get a couple of mini buses plus a few of our own cars - in the very unlikely event that it happened to us!! Better to have a late kick-off than not at all.

Thoughts on East not turning up for game today, did not advise Skirlaugh until 2pm

Don't know who you are cheesecretary but how did you know the game was off, your post was at 1 24pm and Skirlaugh did not find out until 30 min's after you had left your post

And to be honest that's how it should be decided on the pitch . Don't think east are worried about going down as we have been there before . The young talent emerging at Leigh east is frightening . Still a great club with a great structure with 3 open age teams and teams at every age group . A well run club that as had huge changes . New committee , new coaches , new players , it does take a while to implement new ideas . I know because it took 5 years on the last changes of that magnitude . Of course some people will take great pleasure at our demise this season but east will take one step back and go two forward . Just look at some of our wins , sidall away . My ton away all with a bunch of kids in the team

8 Years ago Skirlaugh were fined £750 and 4 points deducted for not fulfilling a play off fixture against West Hull after giving 7 days notice. It was Challenge Cup Final weekend in London ( SINCE THEN THERE HAVE BEEN NO FIXTURES ON THAT WEEKEND ) ?????
