Workington

5 posts in this topic

I see its been announced that Workington now have the choice of any five players which arn't in Widnes' starting 18 as the whole of the Widnes side has been registered with Workington. I thought Widnes had left the Championship for good in 2011 but guess we'll playing them in the form of their reserves.

Whats everyone elses view on this?

I think it will kill clubs...no structure and how can you have a game plan when you don't even know what players you have? Games are also won and lost on the training ground.

Like all the other clubs that have linked up with a SL club Town will only be allowed 5 players at any one time and I don't believe for one minute that there will be many times when we will do that. At the moment we would struggle to put out a team from our own 24 man squad because of injuries and suspensions so we can look to Widnes to help us out in our first matche(s). After that players will only be called upon as and when required. That is no different to what Barrow, and many other clubs did last year with dual registered players. I personally don't like the system because I think it affects the integrity of the Championship competition but on the other hand it's no good burying one's head in the sand because accept it or not it is happening and games will be decided on which team has the best players on the day.

I suppose you believe in the tooth fairy as well?

....... and games will be decided on which team has the best players on the day.

And the availability of the best players on the day is more than likely going to be decided by the SL clubs making/not making players available

No I don't but we shall see how it goes when the season gets going.

Just like it did last season with your dual reg players and all the other clubs that used them. Last year with a set amount registered (4) plus injuries and suspensions we got beat at Gateshead when we played with 15 players 2 of whom had been brought out of retirement to play and two players on the bench so we didn't get a fine for not having 17, because our 4 dual reg players weren't available to help out. With 24 to pick from it shouldn't be a problem this year. ;)
