Cumberland League vote to stay summer

Recommended Posts

Only five years after I suggested it as the only viable solution for local cups in the county....!!

I suggested it a lot longer than 6 years ago, the South West sides didn't want it, thank SS for dividing South Yorkshire when it had 26 teams taking part in a district cup competition also suggested an origin type SY competition.

There's supposed to be 3 next year all summer. Sheffield Hallam in Conference South and Wharncliff Dragons (probably Yorkshire Merit League? They're RU based if they come off) as well as Hillsborough Hawks

Apart from the Eagles overspill Sheffield Hallam will be made up with a lot of BARLA players, as with Kippax and Bramley will this work long term?

Interesting to see a little snapshot survey conducted by @AmateurRLQuotes on twitter indicated that 84% of the "hundreds" of people who responded showed a preference for summer.

The account only began a few days ago and already has almost 3000 followers, not an RFL run account, just an account run by a fan/player that is followed by participants and supporters of Amateur RL.

I appreciate that the demographic of the people that use twitter are younger but surely this gives an idea about where and when those people want to play the game. Maybe it isn't just the RFL pedaling out stats from misleading surveys that contained loaded questions.

I am amazed that I made a comment on the Summer/Winter debate and Marauder did see fit to comment on it. Oh hang on it doesn't back up his argument does it! I knew there must be a reason, my bad!
