  1. Reading the article it says 'Improving Community use', 'wider grass roots', inclusive facilities', Meet the needs of the community', 'Range of sports', impact of the usage'. Surely this is a message to widen our grass routes in the community. Therefore widen our interests and USE our land for community improvement. Things for kids, older people to enjoy, family participation, sports days for the community participation, other sports activities to attract youngsters, sport shops, shops for essentials. On and On look at the possibilities not a narrow minded ground improvement but OVERALL COMMUNITY SERVICE.

  2. We remember our  great performance last season. With all the changes how do you reckon we will line up for 2022 acceptoing of course there might be more signing. But who will play in what position do you reckon?

  3. What wonderful news. Good marketing and loyal support.  Is it in the clubs interest for us to go with Premier sports? Do the club get anything from the deal? If not then surely if we buy a their TV membership we will lose support on the terraces. Or have I as usual got it all wrong.

    Relax Colin. Have a Rolo.

    Soon be the new season... my 49th... yours many more. Just enjoy.

    Hi Robin, yes it is my 84th season of watching and participating. You are right been through a lot in the past. Just been having memories of three of the mates I lost in Egypt and Cyprus. I will just sit back and enjoy. Nobody wants my help anyway. Nice to hear from you. UTR. Just thought if I have a Rolo I could give them a mint.

    colin he was earning around $850,000 per-year, that's over £ 400000 in proper money 


    Sorry misread the figures. That is a lot of money. Not going to find that down the back of the settee.  Roughly £200  a head per supporter. Not going to work for full amount. So where is the money coming from if we sign him?

  7. Biggest problem is driving in the dark. For away games is there going to be a coach for supporters. Bring back British Rail at Featherstone for matches. Tanshelf station used to run a good service for away games running via Leeds in some cases.

    All fans need to  look down the back of the settee to get some pennies to pay his contract 🤣

    How long was his contract for the $80,000? If only for one year with us how much is needed? Nothing down back of settee and have paid £30 extra for my season ticket. Would like to help but need to see the overall financial picture.

    Interesting take on his alleged signing JSL no longer on the quota but why is that a story we're not known for filling up our quota of overseas players


    Got his clearing now for signing.
