:D

Apologies for the lack of Dewsbury numbers - their squad numbering seemed a bit confusing today. According to the team sheet Akadiere scored the first try for Dewsbury, but I believe it was Tebb wearing the wrong shirt!

Great report, Mark!

The Rams played in a set of 2012 shirts today, so the squad numbering that was announced recently was not in effect. Will find out why we didn't play in the 2013 kits tomorrow.

Cheers Tom. Even the numbering on the official teamsheet looked a bit ropey, so I gave up in the end! Luckily I know who most of the key Dewsbury players are, but it was a tough day at the office! ;)

He has always been a good kicker, Frank. Won a match against the Rams with a touchline conversion the last time he was with us. He maybe needs to up the other aspects of his game if he wants to nail down the shirt - I hope he does.

Hya Mark, On the Mini programme BISSA did, the numbers of the players in the squad were the one published by Dewsbury. Its a pity Dewsbury couldn't stick to the published numbers as it makes us all look foolish. Whilst selling the progs numerous Dews fans asked if they were upto date, we said yes and then Dews play in old shirts. Shame really.

Yeah, not sure what happened there, Colin. The numbers just didn't stack up so I just ignored them!

Colin, we played in a set of 2012 shirts because Batley wanted to play in their new home shirts and were worried there'd be a clash.

Yes I read your previous post Tom ,but are you saying the away kit may clash or do they not have an away kit??. Plus what is going to happen when we play Dews in our home league game---wear the 2012 shirts.??

Our second set of shirts for 2013 aren't ready yet. They will be by the time we play you in the league.

Personally, I don't think not having correct squad numbers for a friendly is a big deal, but if Batley had played in their away kit then both teams would have had correct squad numbers.

Just don't think it's fair you having a dig at Dewsbury, as we didn't have any other option under the circumstances

Not having a dig Tom. Just disappointed, as you know, having rushed out a last minute programme, with your help, to find the back page was irrelevant and having told a lot of Dews speccies it was correct. But that's me and my conscience, but I'll gerrover it.

Happy New Year Tom,

Happy New Year Tom,

Don't worry Colin - it gave us something extra to moan about - fair made my Boxing Day in fact.

Happy New Year Tom,

No worries! Maybe I'm still in a bad mood after losing on Boxing Day ;)

Was very happy to help BISSA with the progamme, getting the product produced and on sale at such short notice is a credit to you guys.

I'd love to work alongside you guys ahead of the two league games next year. Let's get the fixtures as well supported as Boxing Day!

the game was played ? the home team was? the away team was? just a thought. well done colin for the programme.

Home team was Batley, away team was Dewsbury.

But, as Batley feared a colour clash, the only way both sets of squad numbers could have been used is if Batley had played in their away kit.

They chose to play in their home kit.

The only reason I posted was to explain why Dewsbury's squad numbers were incorrect.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Batley fans :)

Regards Strips-----No idea Doc, I ,like all of us, have only heard this from Tom.

I agree, Kevin has/would never say that, as he himself knows the value of bar funds to the home club. Good observation Doc..

Same to you and yours. ( Happy New Year )

Colin, who at Batley thought the home strips clashed? The colours are completely different. I would be careful regarding any future dealings. Has Kevin ever asked the Batley fans to leave Owl lane immediately after a game and deprive them of funds? All the best for the new year.

Sorry mr G, and I don't mean to be picky, but I don't think anybody associated with the Rams asked supporters to leave the love rugby stadium immediately after the match, nor did they suggest Rams supporters not use the dog's bar facilities. As far as I'm aware, the club merely stated that the royal suite would be open to welcome supporters to have a drink and meet the players after the match - just as it is for the home games. Did all the dogs fans call into the royal suite after last year's match ? Nah - some did, but most went elsewhere.

the rams fans not using the Dogs bar after the game deprived us of at least £7.00...but no worries

My, my, you are still just as Grumpy as ever in this New Year. Your whole response to the post I replied to Colin is un-nerving. To refresh your memory,

As you can see it is a question regarding the source of complaint regarding shirts This is followed by general advice not to have further dealings with these people and a question regarding Kevin. Finally felicitations for the New year.

No idea why you assumed I wrote that the official Rams statements said immediately. As far as I can see they say come after the game and the bar will be open at 2. If you left immediately after the game would you be able to get there for two or would you have to set off before the end? Hope to hear from you soon.

Best New Year wishes to you.

Batley fans to leave Owl lane immediately after a game

You didn't write that then - the implication, unless I'm missing something, is that MS suggested rams fans go back to the tetleys immediately, straight after or as soon as possible following the conclusion of the match. That smacks of paranoia. The statement simply reminded fans that the bar was open for business in the afternoon and that there would be an opportunity for them to mix with the players - like any other matchday in fact, and I'm sure Batley is the same. Two of my occasional drinking companions are dogs fans - they didn't stop behind in the bar on boxing day either, instead, choosing to walk down into town, to get blethered on the cheap. Maybe you'd better have a word with the manager of a well known town centre watering hole. I'm sure KN, like MS is well aware that business is business and that freedom of choice is what democracy is based on - if KN feels he has been in some way wronged, I'm sure he will get his own back next year. Happy new year and have a nice day.

Not at all - your posts don't wind me up in the least, so I have no reason to be - all I am doing is defending my club. Your opinion of MS and the club is well documented, and although I can't begin to understand what events might have triggered your obsession with them, at the end of the day you're entitled to that opinion.

You know Grumpy I cannot recall any post where I have maligned MS, swore or threatened. Just I seem to see things differently to you and your ilk. Being of a curious disposition, I try to understand how events unfold and try to understand actions which are alien to myself. I just try to understand all.

I would say some of the stuff on your bogus website was tending towards the personal, wouldn't you ? Batley have been our biggest and bitterest rivals since the the league was formed, but I have always felt there was a mutual respect between the clubs, officals and fans, which is as it should be. FWIW, I admire the achievements of the Batley club both on and off the field under KN, and the enthusiasm and hard work of it's supporters - particularly those associated with BISSA. You might find this hard to believe, but I am actually delighted that KN has seen some rewards for his efforts (albeit tinged with jealousy), so while I am happy to swap banter with the dogs fans along with the best of them - banter is all it is. Like I said, you are entitled to your opinions - I can't understand them, but I respect them - personally I'll continue my love hate relationship with the fair minded majority.
