Boxing Day

Could be a money raiser here,

1, Is it possible to "open up" the car park behind the sticks at the bottom end. (Some how?) (Included in hospitality packages?)

2, To park round the cricket ground and exit via the gate near Batley Boys ?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

BTW, the land behind Tommos stand and the bowling green had cars parked there. I think thats a first? What is the reasoning behind that?

As far as I am aware the area behind the bottom sticks was/is for the Directors,players, staff and VP's as there were numbered car passes made for that purpose (They were made for Paul Hull). Idea being the spaces those cars took up in the car park, would release places and at £2 per car would increase revenues.

years ago cars used to park around the cricket field and exit by the boys club but since the cricket club is now a totally separate entity (ie no longer part of Batley cricket,athletic and football club) Batley RL don't have the right to use this area,however if the cricket club were to get a part of the fee for cars parked around the cricket field they may agree to this,cars could go in by the side of the Boys club and exit down heritage road as they do now, this might occasionally cause a bit of a delay in exiting but it would only be occasionally and wouldn't be a massive delay, just a thought!

On a slightly different note leaving the ground has always struck me as chaotic with nobody offering any form of direction or co-ordination. When i was walking through the cars on Sunday there was an ambulance attempting to get to the ground and, despite flashing lights and sounding of klaxon, it was getting absolutely nowhere. Surely this is the kind of thing that the club should be catering for?

The only good news is that this situation won't happen again until Boxing Day 2014.

I was leaving in my car at the same time and did receive direction and instructions from stewards. However I think that on this specific occasion some guidance was needed at the end of the road.

Traffic issues are not usually an issue during the season. I just think that all traffic should be stopped entering heritage road (taxis ) until the crowd has cleared.

Totally agree DD. The club should inform all the local taxi firms that they are not to enter Heritage Way until 30 minutes after the match ends. At least then all the traffic, both motorised and on foot, would be moving in the same direction. As it is a taxi travelling in the opposite direction to everything else just causes mayhem.

Last time I looked Heritage Way is public highway. How can the club dictate to local taxi firms? And what about those who use the old Tavners, they usually park 'on street'?

The club just don't care after the game. There was a situation last yr where the parking on the grass behind the long stand was a nightmare. Resulting in cars been blocked in after the stewards had directed cars to park in blocks of three. Absolute chaos after the match. Not one steward to be seen.

Surely if BSJ had won the half time draw,a man of his principles would have donated the proceeds back to the Batley club.

Of course I would. If only I'd bought a ticket eh?
