  1. Electric went off here about 4am on Saturday and still isn't back on. I wholly appreciate given the time and scale of the issues caused across the North of England that Northern Powergrid will struggle to clear the backlog quickly, however their comms is terrible. I've had two messages so far: one at 6am on the day it went off to tell me then nothing for 48 hours until they sent another telling me their working on it. Use the online tool to track faults, and we don't show up, despite speaking them last night to discuss why at the time, we were one of only about 4 properties still without power in the area.
  2. No idea if it's the same lad, but I was at school with a lad called John Bramham, who was both a half decent laiker and a Fev fan. I seem to recall he'd previously been John Millington earlier in his life (nickname was Millo), so could have reverted back to that for whatever reason. He'd have been born in 76 or 77 if that helps. He also played at Cas RU for a number of years.
  3. If it is discrimination, wouldn't it be against season ticket holders of all Championship clubs, not just Fev?
  4. I thought he looked promising when he played for us, though realised he'd be unlikely to be a first team regular. I don't recall seeing anything from the club about him leaving mid-season, but he clearly went to his local amateur side (Sidddal) and now appears to be another Fax signing for 2022. Seeing they've today signed Alex Walker on trial, they're going to have a lot of cover at fullback.
  5. Not heard or seen anything, but agreed on importance.
  6. Went to Bradford City back in June. https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/sport/19361059.royston-named-bradford-city-head-performance-medicine/
  7. Coaching appointments could also be key as to how teams go. Obviously we've a new man in charge and are presumably still looking for a no 2. Leigh yet to announce, and both York and Fax have announced new assistants. The impact of all of these changes could be critucal: look at our recent past to see how different things can be based on whoever is in charge.
  8. Plus McConnell. Feels like that's it for re-signings. Not sure we'll see Blackmore back with us next year, but time will tell on that.
  9. We all want to batter leigh.
  10. Doesn't look like a new signing tonight.
  11. I've found in the past if you want to sell something to clear space there are loads of options. Facebook marketplace, various buy and sell groups or ebay being the obvious ones. Giving to local charity shops is another easy option. The problem comes if you just want to give stuff away, that charity shops are unlikely to sell but is still perfectly serviceable. Things like unfashionable pieces of furniture, old bikes, random electrical, etc. As soon as you advertise stuff as being free, people often seem to view that as the opportunity to mess you about by not turning up to collect it as arranged, asking for you to deliver, etc. After clearing my late Dad's house earlier in the year I ended up doing delivery drop offs at various points between Pontefract and Hebden Bridge (and detours on the way) because people wanted things but didn't want to collect them. When trying to get shut of a pile of about 30 A4 ring binders, I actually had someone pleading with me to do an 80 mile round trip to deliver just one of them, just because it had Minnie Mouse on the front and she wasn't prepared to collect or pay postage for it! I hate throwing usable things away, but sometimes it's either that or become a hoarder, because it's more hassle than it's worth trying to give things for free.
  12. Two years ago, who knew what was about to hit the world. Could they, and Toronto worked in different circumstances? Sadly, we'll never know.
  13. Listening to Look North now. Just announced that Jamaica are playing v England at Featherstone on Sunday. A really good and positive piece, but a glaring inaccuracy.
  14. Bradford said the same about Jordan Lilley. It's marketing speak, bigging up the signings helps ticket sales.
  15. Tell that to Jon Sharp.
  16. Rumour he wants to go PT so he can study
  17. Define how many is "many". Whilst a few fans are stressing now, I doubt that come the start of the season we'll have anything other than a strong squad to get behind.
  18. Outside back made me think centre or wing tbh. No idea what he'd be like in either of those positions though.
  19. First new signing announced. Interesting that it's not specifically referred to him being a full back. https://www.featherstonerovers.co.uk/news/featherstone-rovers-add-brandon-pickersgill-to-the-blue-wall-for-2022-5cy6O
