NWCL

Eccles were only running a team in the NWML entry division because we could not commit due to the fact that a lot of our players were Rugby Union lads playing in their off season, but as the season has progressed the team has been unbeaten and more of our home grown players have returned. Today we got through to the cup final with a team of home grown Eccles players (3 over 40) and I really hope we keep this side together and enter the NWCL. The Rugby Union lads have served us well and I thank them. They all bought club shirts and made themselves part of the club while they were with us. Look forward to seeing them again. Really hope the NWCL start to flourish again and Eccles are part of it.

From the website, the following teams are starting the competition this weekend:

 
Golbourne Parkside, Blackbrook, Hindley, Dalton, Wigan St Cuthberts, Eccleston Vikings, Leigh East, Irlam Hornets, Higgenshaw, Albert Park, Widnes Moorfield, Whitworth Spartans
 

 

I'm guessing more will join when summer commitments finish?

Most of their second teams have finished their games.  Brook, Hindley & Cuthberts NCL fixtures will be finished by next week

 

Note Hindley's first game aganist Dalton is P-P, so I'm guessing they are waiting for NCL to finish before the NWC fixtures

Surely all must finish their present commitments whether it be ncl or nw men's league before starting fixtures in the nwc league.

They may be able to fulfill both, or like what Hindley appear to be doing complete one season, then move on to the next

I know of one team who have considered entering the NWCL this Winter but only have a very small squad and have not done so because they can't afford the fine if they fail to fulfil the fixture. The local council are killing the club with rent charges etc. How sad.

Seems a common trait with some councils. Most have no money but seem to try to squeeze money out of the wrong places
