    This might help someone, you can change dates etc to suit. https://www.skyscanner.net/transport/flights/man/tls/200208/200209/?adultsv2=1&childrenv2=&cabinclass=economy&rtn=1&preferdirects=false&outboundaltsenabled=false&inboundaltsenabled=false#/
  2. They've struggled a little in recent times, the Forlorn Eagles!
  3. I'd assumed it was not Bower Fold because I would have thought that would be a quick announcement. Very interesting that they were at Boundary Park therefore. But evn more so with ongoing ownership issues and movements there at OAFC.
  4. It goes without saying every player has played his part, and in an ideal world all would get renwed, but in reality it'sa year on and it's a step up, and some are in realityh going. Polls a re limtited to 3 questions, so here goes, an alternative. I'll collate if enough do it. Release or Keep 1 Kyran Johnson Release or Keep 2 Aaron Jones-Bishop Release or Keep 55 Declan Kay Release or Keep 3 Zack McComb Release or Keep 4 Jack Holmes Release or Keep 7 Dave Hewitt Release or Keep 8 Phil Joy Release or Keep 9 Gareth Owen Release or Keep 11 Ben Calland Release or Keep 12 Emmerson Whittel Release or Keep 13 Jack Spencer Release or Keep 15 Adam Brook Release or Keep 16 Danny Langtree Release or Keep 17 Jimmy Beckett Release or Keep 18 Ben Davies Release or Keep 19 Jamie Greenwood Release or Keep 20 Matty Wilkinson Release or Keep 24 Liam Bent Release or Keep 25 Danny Bridge Release or Keep 27 Harry Maders Release or Keep 28 Harry Aaronson Release or Keep 29 Cameron Leeming Release or Keep 50 Ed Smith
  5. With Nobby, Crook & Hawkyard already J think there could be quite a turnover this year, making it even more difficult next season.
  6. I'm absolutely sure he'd get a fantastic welcome at oldham.
  7. Govt stats for non-local people Oldham. https://www.ons.gov.uk/releases/ukmigrationindicatorsbylocalarea2017 IMHO league position, stadium location and performance on the pitch have been the most significant thant he others mentioned. The numbers have remained static.I think the discontinuation of a love of rugby through the generations does not depend on skin colour.
  8. My hunch. We only do one press subject a day, and obviosuly yesterday was the Matt Diskin announcement. If it's a return to Bower Fold, and there was no fall out/money not paid, then it should be relatively straightforward to arrange and announcemtn in the coming days/s. If Boundary Park has been explored then longer. The Oldham owner is tricky, and the split int he land more so. What is frustrating is the RFL lack of support in ground improvements, despite their ownership of Odsal. Grants for football clubs (look at Avro, and also similarly in Union. If the RFL had grant system in place when we owned Whitebank, things could be very different now. Albeit lack of funds could have scuppered it anyway, but a ground fundraiser could have been ongoing etc. It really could have been a springboard on the great efforts of the team and SN. Still good that progress is being made.

  10. Are you going to do another Trello this year Dave?

    The Final

    This. I think it would have been so demoralising, and the game lost. Literally inches from losing.
  12. Now the dust has settled, and what a an amazing effort by so many players, which players to keep and which to release for the Championship season?
  13. The scrap gold value alone is getting on for £500, RLDWSS.

  15. Scottish attendances are notoroiously low, partly due to the part time nature, and mainly the fact everyone supports English clubs i they don't support Celtic or Rangers. In England it is full time down the Vananrama Conference. So a comparison at the next tier which is semi Pro and North and South split is fair, this is Tier 6. Given the size of the leagues it's also fairer. It also includes an number of former League (York, Hereford, Chester, Darlington, Southport, Boston, Bardford) & top tier non-league (Kidderminster, Telford, Altrincham, Kings Lynn, Gateshead, Blyth etc) teams that have fallen on hard times..... 19-20 season so far Average Attendance 1 York City 2,628 2 Hereford 2,386 3 Chester 1,985 4 Darlington 1,588 5 Kidderminster Harriers 1,401 6 AFC Telford United 1,271 7 Spennymoor Town 1,223 8 Boston United 1,157 9 Altrincham 1,137 10 King's Lynn Town 1,095 11 Gateshead 983 12 Southport 941 13 Blyth Spartans 923 14 Guiseley 919 15 Kettering Town 838 16 Gloucester City 658 17 Farsley Celtic 603 18 Brackley Town 513 19 Leamington 505 20 Alfreton Town 490 21 Bradford (Park Avenue) 444 22 Curzon Ashton 422
