Players / Coaches on the move

There a new team thats formed in leigh,a few teething issues because east compained to league saying it could affect them because theres not enough players to go round but i think its been sorted now and hilton park had to pay a £500 bond,i think it a joke because a lot of lads left because of the way the club was going so its there own fault so they should look at themselves and stop blaming new teams because they never complained when centurions had a team a couple of seasons ago because they was ex miners lads

There isn't enough players to go round. Unless you go round with your eyes closed, it's the same players moving around. The league shouldn't have accepted Hilton Park imo. If the Easts lads wanted to leave, then there's plenty of other clubs for them to go to in Wigan and Leigh. New teams that start at the expense of other established clubs shouldn't be allowed to start up.

well they've just had a local comp and there was 8 teams in it and alot of players did play plus there must be about 8 to 10 teams in wigan but pats dont complain plus a few was on about jacking in all together but with hilton park starting up they've decided to carry on playing,like i said earlier it was only a couple of years ago that there was 3 teams in leigh and east didnt moan then, if they are that bothered they should have listened to the lads but they didnt so for me they cant moan about it

So how come the shaw cup was played with 8 teams ?????

You are wrong Jag !!! there arent enough teams in Leigh palying at the right levels,,, we are a town with Elite Rugy and if you do not fit in where do you go......and Leigh East should be one club that realises this with how well the 3rd team has done in recent years....... ?????

The RFL want development and increase in participation in RL ,,, not lads walking away and never playing again...

How come Hilton Park has started at the expense of Leigh East ?????

If players arent happy to play for a club/coach/committee,,, after trying to speak with them and come to some amicable decisions ,,, what do they do?????

If we as a town with 50,000 population cant have more than 2 clubs with open age teams ,,, when you look at other towns of a similar size...Wigan who is twice the size of Leigh have approx 11 clubs with junior and OA set ups...

IMO Jaguar u seem to be blinkered.

What a load of ######. Do you mean 'if they won't play for Leigh east they're not playin for anybody ' ???? That's the ###### attitude Leigh east have and the underhand tactics east are pulling at the moment has cost Hilton park £500 to enter the league. Just shows how desperately sad that club is nowadays when they feel threatened by a pub team.

They Issued a letter of objection stating certain issues why Hilton park shouldn't be allowed to enter the north west mens league which resulted in them asking Hilton park for a £500 bond to enter the league. East are using Hilton park as an excuse as to why so many lads/coaches have left the club. They need to look in the mirror rather than try and shift the blame onto others.

how have leigh east cost them £500?

because they've sent a letter of concern then when hilton park got in the league they sent another letter of objection saying hilton would end up costing the league money because they would not fulfill their fixtures so the league has made um pay £500 before they can join,for me its sad when a club like east are bothered about a pub side thats formed so lads that dont want to go miners or a team in wigan can carry on playing and having a good crac as well

Sad that John would they rather you lads not play at all , its good that the Town can have another team to keep the big two on their toes .

It will be hard to sustain the team we struggled at the Lions with not enough strength in depth but we at the craic and had a good couple of years while it lasted.

Good luck to all at Hilton Park hope it works out ,and to those left at the EAST dont concern yourselves with the lads that have left look after the lads that remain .

I just think its sad Mick when the're blaming Hilton Park, Its their own doing, all the lads want to do is have a game and a good laugh afterwards

If there hadn't been problems at Leigh East there wouldn't be a Hilton Park team so the whingeing from East is a tad pathetic. It doesn't say much for the NWC that they listened to Easts and demanded a bond.

Good luck to the new team, it gives me another option for my entertainment.

Have all the clubs not been asked to put up a bond ?

Did centurions have to pay a bond when miners complained Mick,oh sorry miners didnt complain because they wer'nt threatened by a pub side

£500 is a ridiculous amount of money to ask a new side for.... I would imagine that this is Mr Lowe 's idea ,,,,,

Most new teams do get asked for a bond ,, but never known one at £500 ??

The RFL are killing the local community game!!!!

To be fair John neither East or Miners gave us any problems and we mainly got lads who had either stopped playing or were new to the game .

When we folded a lot of the lads went playing for the Miners and have carried on playing so we at least got the lads back into the game .

I dont suscribe that Leigh and its surrounding areas can not faciltate another open age set up it can. there are loads of lads who are willing to play given the correct enviroment.

East will survive as will the Miners but for anyone to try and put obstacles in the way of the Hilton Park outfit must see them as a threat .

a few lads have gone down that were not playing for either east or miners but want to get back playing so if anything its got lads back playing the game which can only be good for me

Too many new teams popping up all over the place in areas that don't have enough players to sustain them, and don't have the youth sytem to last. They just devalue the bigger clubs cos thats usually where the majority of players come from. Unfortunately too many players prefer to be a "big fish in a small pond rather than fight for a place at a higher level. Eccles, particularly have suffered from this in recent times. Apart from East and Miners, Leigh is littered with failed club names. Victoria, Bedford Brewery, Three Crowns, Leigh Harriers etc, etc. Good luck to Leigh East - a club I have always admired. Don't know or care who is responsible for the current situation but its a shame when you think of the great history of the club and all the great players who have turned out for them. Hope they sort themselves out soon.

The joke is that a club can call off 6 games before they get a fine and then the fine is £60 and there are no on field punishments (points deduction or relegation) and often you get to replay the game. Yet they do this.

I'm led to believe the bond is so high because Hilton Park wanted to start at division 2 rather than division 4 so kind of a bribe for promotion

Bribe for promotion ?? Wtf are you on about, you don't half spout sum ###### on these forums. Clubs are asked to inform the NWML if they don't agree with their provisional league placements and inform the NWML of the level they see themselves capable of especially new teams. Hilton park see themselves capable of division 2 which is were they ended up. No need for any 'bribe'. Like somebody said earlier it's gettin boring now.
