  1. Good luck lads do the NCL proud, from all at Ince Rose Bridge.
  2. Said it many times, we are all volunteers who are involved for our enjoyment and worrying about costs is not enjoyable.. I can assure you that finance is a major issue for all clubs.and the major concern for committees. Travel costs are without doubt the major costs to all of us. Granted the sponsorship secured by the NCL has been a great help to most clubs but surely the RFL can afford to support the next level to professional rugby league. The RFU are superb in looking after all clubs at all levels we need to take a look at them for inspiration.
  3. In last Saturdays fixture against Ince Rose Bridge, one the Ince Players ( Connor Meaden )suffered a double fracture of the Tibia and Fibulal. It was in the 67th minute of the game with Hull Dockers deservedly leading 32 -14. The referee rightly abandoned the game as agreed by both sets of player and coaches. We at IRB would like to put on record our thanks to all at Hull Dockers for the excellent care and help given to Connor. The players at Hull Dockers have also donated their fine money to Connor to help him in the coming months of recovery. A superb gesture and absolute credit to all concerned. Many thanks from all the Players , Officials and Supporters of Ince Rose Bridge.
  4. The work load put on to administrator at the clubs increases annually, therefore it no longer is enjoyable. As you say the age the volunteers at clubs is usually fifty years or older. Throw in New technology that they are required to use and you find that pool of volunteers decreases every season. The main thing that people forget we are all involved for enjoyment ans NOT a second place of employment.
  5. Excellent game at Ince Rose Bridge today, with the home side coming out on top against their fiercest rivals Wigan St Pats. A superb advert for the game in WIgan. Nice to see George Williams and Paul Sculthorpe at the game supporting their old community clubs.
  6. That is my point amateurs are expected to do this but full time club's don't.
  7. Correct but you need a person to take responsibility for this that is my point.
  8. NCL clubs can get fined if a volunteer makes a mistake, or simply don't have someone with the skills to submit information etc. I can sympathise with the semi pro clubs as it is very difficult to get volunteers to submit to the time required to keep things up to date. The BBC and other organisations can only work with information supplied and occasionally this is wrong.
  9. In regards to funding, is it true that the NCL travel grant has been withdrawn by the RFL ?
  10. Hope it is look forward to it on my next holiday flight.
  11. All basically true except the part about the fine. If finance was an issue why go on and pay more out for transport for the remainder of the season than simply pay the fine ????
  12. T Thanks Celtic, just wanted to clarify the situation.
  13. Sorry Celtic,on this occasion your wrong it was nothing to do with the fine. It was a last minute turn around by all involved at the club with a wish to complete all fixtures and they did ! Then rebuild as they are doing now. Think your contact at the NCL is believing the management propoganda.
