Bramley next year

50 posts in this topic

Just seen Bramley have appointed a new coach which is good news as it suggests they're still going.

Anyone know in what league they plan to play?

Yorkshire Men's League I think - pretty sure that's where they're being directed towards, anyway

Bramley, Kippax, Fryston and Birstall would go some way towards a strong premier. Guess it depends whether they're going for a short or long season how easy it would be to get a good line up

If it means anything Bramley and Kippax have been added to the Yorkshire Men's League website's club list.

Just to be clear, St.Wilf's is not a girls high school. It's a high school that has a girls team. It's a catholic school in Featherstone.

You are probably correct I was just pointing out that Just because Bramleys Name was on the YML website it maybe a mistake because of some the other teams named on it clearly will not be in the league. See you next season stupid when you are playing our reserves.

After seeing you're first team you've nothing much to brag about. At least you now have a half decent coach after we developed him during his time with us. Be nice to rack up a big win against your reserves if we play in tier 4!

when was I bragging about our 1st team. I was not even having a go at Bramley I hope they do enter the YML and find there level within the game. But I must say that one thing Milford never do is brag we know that if you do when you fall from grace you come down with a big bang has you well know!! Thanks for Developing Paul but maybe you would have been better developing a few junior or youth teams instead and you may then have got into the NCL. Maybe you will or will not rack up a big score against our Reserves who knows totally depends on when we play you in the season. but if we do beat you I can tell you now Milford will not be bragging about it. Just to answer your opening line about us bragging about our 1st team. We might not have been the best team in the League last season but one thing we can brag about is that 99% of that team have come from our juniors or youth setup and that is something we are very proud of and worked hard to achieve.

If I miss read your earlier comment apologies but 'see you next season stupid when you are playing our reserves.....' does reads like someone bragging at Bramley's expense. Point taken on your junior set up and credit to all involved. But you have to start somewhere with a new team and in the years before the NCL moved there were lots of players available for summer teams.

After running a successful junior team its a long term project and you often lose the better quality players as they tapped up by some of themore established sides who can 'offer' players such things as representative honors without giving a second thought to what this means to the less established teams.

Best game in world for a good bit of banter. Was a good piece on Milford in League Weekly today, have a good season, with Paul Cook I'm sure you will.

Still waiting for our option(s) for 2013 to be fully explored.

I've always had a lot of time for the Spracklens but I lost a bit of respect for the Bramley club during Leeds Akkies' dalliance with NL3.

The Akkies resisted the urge to try to poach lads from other local clubs and tried to stick with the recruitment model that precipitated the club's formation in the first place. Consequently, they found it mightily hard to compete with other clubs who basically resembled Barla town teams.

What annoyed me with Bramley though was the attitude of the bulk of their supporters (an impressive 300 or so of whom were packed into our stand chanting "easy, easy!" and generally being a bit obnoxious) as well as *some* of the players (whooping, sledging, and all the usual flat-track bully nonsense).

I've no problem with Bramley being several levels above our lads but felt they could've administered their hiding with a little more good grace.

I also objected to some of the press releases relating to "new club records" and "all- time leading tryscorer" when, with all respect, trying to equate some lad from Milford scoring seven tries against Essex Eels with hard earned achievements forged in the furness of semi-pro rugby league was a little offensive to the blokes who'd played for the Villagers in their original guise.

That said, as a west Leeds(ish) resident, I'd love to see Bramley make a real stab at semi-pro rugby playing out of Farsley Celtic or, alternatively, regrouping as a genuine community/grassroots club playing out of Bramley.

There were and are some really committed people involved with the Buffaloes project and it would be great to see their hard work channelled into something that would have the support and admiration of the local rugby league community.

I can appreciate your obviously heartfelt points. It's often difficult to see both sides especially after the years of pain without a team.

On the field success does not always breed the right attitudes in both players and fans but I know there were true supporters who valued the efforts of the Akkies and other teams. The records attained by the new club can never surpass those achieved in the semi pro days but its difficult to strike the right balance.

Whether or not the club can prosper in the future its been a fantastic journey. My wish is that just maybe all of west Leeds can pull in the same direction and then we can once more enjoy and realise the ambitions to have a truly inclusive semi pro club.

The fans on that hill at Bramley are not exactly sporting towards opposition players and staff. Whoever has been or played there will know what I mean

I can't say I care for the character assassination but am I bothered - no. Your one size fits all view of Bramley's supporters is absolutely fine but it fails to recognise the magnificent work done to by a small number of tireless committee members. Perhaps you were intimidated simply because you have never witnessed so many home supporters at this level before. Most visiting teams fans can usually be accommodated on a motorcycle and sidecar, so may have been lonely.

I could be wrong and no doubt someone will correct me but not sure we have ever played Eccles perhaps Celtic Rooster your mixing our fans with the our landlords at Stanningley.

Merry Christmas bah humbug :rolleyes:
