BARLA Yorkshire County despite rumours to the contrary are alive and kicking and to quote Samuel Langhorne Clemens, also known as Mark Twain: “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”
BARLA Yorkshire has acted quickly, following unexpected resignations by members of the previous committee, appointing individuals in house to run the county on a temporary basis, pending the AGM on the 24th September, at Shaw Cross Sharks ARLFC.
Until then, the day to day running of the County will be as follows:
Chair: Carl Morton, Vice Chair: Spen Allison; Secretary: Susan Williams, Media Manager: Steve Manning, BARLA Vice Chair:Steve Manning,
The first thing this ad hoc committee has done, is make sure the county will have an Under 17’s side, and set up, for the forthcoming Tri series in October.
At BARLA’s AGM on Sunday, BARLA chair, Sue Taylor, stated that one of her aims over the next twelve months is to review the rules and constitution, regarding the BARLA Three Counties, to ensure that all three are `singing from the same hymn sheet’ and operating on an open and transparent basis.
