if we're in the championship then we probably could afford to rent bp....first and foremost we should look at redeveloping whitebank....but if that does'nt happen...and if latics get their new main stand built,which it gonna house new office for the latics management then we should seriously look into coming up with a plan to argee to taking over the old main stand and keep whitebank purely for training & reserve games...

How on earth could a Rugby Club with crowds of 500 ............ ( to pay for one home and one away match wages ) afford to rent BP ?????????? A crowd of 500 will not even meet the cost of the wages now , let alone any rental etc etc etc

There were one or two ...................but somebody told them in a round about way TO GET LOST / TO GO AWAY . .. as he would do everything on his own ........ I assume thats why nothing has been done to the ground since the very first game at the Whitebank ( that goes for speccies and players alike I think )

Is the above information corroborated?

If there are one or two people interested in investing why are they not progressing the matter!!!!

Serious investors would not be put off by a simply being to told to go away, How recent is the source of this information?

I think saying nothing has been done on Whitebank is a huge insult to all the work volunteers have actually done. Of course we want a decent ground but are there really people waiting to take the club off his hands? If your post is correct, why have these folks not spoken out if they are so keen to spend their cash?

These people and one in particular asked to see the books as everyone knows ...............and !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! everyone knows the rest.

With regards to the work done by "The Volunteers" I am the first to admit that getting the ground up to spec for the opening match wads a fantastic achievement by THEM . Since that first match on 9th May 2010 when I think along with myself there was around another 1,660 who attended .....nothing HAS been done to improve the ground at all ( unless you know better ) and some people may say neither has anything been done to improve the team. Just ask the 500 who turn up now , or better stil ask the 1,160 who have been lost to the club in those 3 years. Have they all gone to watch Waterhead and Saddleworth ( see thread giving att at their game )

Dear Sir, I was one of the volunteers then and still am today. I was also one of the fans and have been since 1960. Please don't speak with such irony when all you seem to want to do is ridicule Chris Hamilton and those working so hard today. I have played both professional and amateur and will continue to support both which I don't presume you do not do yourself cnsideringh your continual negative dialogue. No one who has the club or game at heart wants to see us in our current plight but to consistently put down those who are trying to do something about it is down right rude. Who has repaired the turnstiles, who has re decorated the clubhouse, who prepares the ground week in and week out, who has dug holes for fans ashes to be interred, etc etc. LETS USE BOLD, NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE HA HA HA! SIGNED CURRENT FAN AND SUPPORTER.

As an ex supporter of ORLFC who still takes an interest in what goes on, I find it ironic that there is still no progress on the ground development. It is now two years since I visited the ground, until then I was a regular attender. I had questions regarding the ground and lottery that I put to CH but these were never answered. There is still no terracing , cover or proper toilets on the ground so how can you expect older people to attend. They can't even sit down unless you want to view the match from past the dead ball line. The silence coming from the club is deafening. Could someone be honest and let everyone know if the showers are working with hot water? if not what an insult to the Oldham players and visitors. Is it any wonder that the attendance is so poor.

I may add I still enjoy my rugby but it is now at Saddleworth where I am made very welcome, can sit down under cover if I wish, can see all the ground, be invited into a warm clean clubhouse , can park my car on a hard stand and still only pay £1.00.

I wish ORLFC every success but until things are put on a professional basis I'll continue to watch elsewhere. I would ask why has everything to be done by volunteers who then tell people they should get down and help? If that is what they want to do then fine by me and others but don't have a go at people if they choose not to do so. This is their right as it is with the volunteers, so do think before you use bold.

Ch must be laughing all the way to his bank if he hasn't to pay out for ground maintainence etc.

Hi exrlref, Roughyedz was saying that nothing had been done but it has. This has been done by volunteers and i said nothing about others not volunteering. He was using bold to make his point so i did likewise to make mine. Obviously it is every individuals choice if they want to volunteer or not.

Behind the mainstand and behind goal half a forest has been taken away for the seats to be put in place.
