new clubs for 2013?

44 posts in this topic

Anyone know of any?

New clubs I've heard of:

Catterick Crusaders (think they may be North Yorkshire Stallions)

Darlington

North Yorkshire Broncos (new to open age but already ran juniors)

Beckenham Bears

Croydon?

A merged West London Sharks and South London Storm?

In the midlands there are to my knowledge no new clubs at open age but Grantham Gladiators are joining the junior league I think.

Hilton Park (Leigh) have appeared on twitter. Not sure where they sprang up from but think I read somewhere there was former Leigh East people involved.

Correct, Catterick are N.Y Stallions.

Beeston Broncos, new team in Leeds.

Beeston (south Leeds) have had junior teams for some time now , and have formed an open age side , don't know wether they'll be playing summer/winter rugby tho......not far from Hunslet Old Boys/Warriors who both run 2 open age sides...........

Broncos are "Northallerton Broncos" according to their website url but are based just down the road from Catterick - even on Catterick Road!

Make of that what you will.

Think they changed name from Northallerton Broncos to North Yorkshire Broncos when they moved ground. Presumably they never bothered changing the URL

Now I'm confused. I though Northallerton were the Stallions. Was Broncos perhaps the name of their youth side?

I suspect they will be a army side

Northallerton Broncos were a junior side yes. Not sure if they were ever the same club as the Stallions but presumably they got on initially

This team is a pub team and playing with other pub teams in a local competition as a Charity Fundraiser.

only seen the teams in Div 4 I'm afraid and only by text. Shake out from some going to NCL and the two teams going to winter is that we lose a division (which means divisions are bigger I think - not seen all divisions yet) and the season starts earlier. Would have hoped that some merit league sides might have stepped up but I know one is only having their planning day this weekend so hopefully, some will apply to fully step-up.

An army side with juniors!

I think it's already been pointed out that the club is looking like an amalgamation of a junior and open-aged club in that area and I'm sure the open-aged side is heavily reliant on soldiers..

Looking like division 3 is an A team division?

How come Barrow Island are taken out but no other Barrow teams? Guessing if the Cumbrian League happens it will effect these divisions.

I would be surprised if Hindpool or Ulverston moved to a Cumbria league

In which case it won't happen. But where will Barrow Island play then?

Maybe back in the merit league?

I was hopeful that a few from the Merit League might step up...and I'd hope some might still.
