Sheffield away Friday night at Bramhall Lane

Oh touché

:D

I think the comment about being glad to have a stadium next year regarded Sheffield, not York. Don Valley is being knocked down - confirmation of which came through just as last night's game kicked off (following Sheffield council meeting). Who knows where Eagles will be able to play.

Story is here although (unsurprisingly) the Telegraph makes no mention of rugby league http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/athletics/9903797/Don-Valley-Stadium-to-be-demolished-due-to-cost-cuts.html

A) we struggle with crowds because most want a guaranteed win before they're willing to take it up with the wife.

B) 1000 is p++s poor but it was a friday night- Mightve been 1010 had it been on a sunday.

C) at least we live in York.

Eagles are hoping the the Council will sanction a new stadium to replace DV but have contingency plans to play at Woodbourn Athletics Stadium next season ( It's where Jess Ennis trains ). I asked about Owlerton where they used to play but there is no safety certificate to facilitate RL there now.

Half the spectators at a Sheff home game are on of the Sheff squads anyway - and these are this years team to beat, yet as said above, 2000 when lowly York won the league below. So yeah, P++s poor.

Winter though, and a friday. Summer will be better attendances everywhere

Just back from 3 days Peak District walking & the match, felt a bit sorry for the lads, didn'y

deserve that final score, thought Danny Nicklas was excellent & George Elliot went really well

until he was injured.
