Actually they "always" used to play on Christmas Day but maybe that extends beyond your colossal memory PM?

So your not bothered about new fans who don't know the history of your heavy woollen Derby then !!. Just the fans who already go and know boxing say is RL derby day!. I bet that will increase your crowds, that and a van I saw by Birstall the other day with a batley player on the side.

Really? Before my time then.

I was referring to the days when they would play each other on Christmas Day with the return on Boxing Day, both being league games of course. This was in the days when milk and post would be delivered on Christmas Day, the buses still used to run etc.

It was first and foremost an opportunity to settle old scores - and that was only the crowd. Happy days. :rolleyes:

All being well there will be an 8 page mini programme available. John Miller has in the last 2 days worked really hard to produce this. There are words from BOTH Clubs Chairmen, plus words from BOTH Coaches. Something for both sets of supporters. BISSA are producing it and ''should'' be ready tomorrow. It will be priced at 50p, in Colour, and all proceeds will go into the BISSA fund.

Merry Xmas to everyone see you 'up ther'.

ColinB.--BISSA.

I'm going to make this game seen as though we haven't got a game Boxing Day. I'm looking forward to seeing batley as you guys have recruited really well pre season. Are you guys putting out your strongest available squad?
