  1. Great to have you for the next 2 seasons Gabe and I cannot wait to see you back out on the field as I have been very impressed with what I have seen of you so far. Just keep this caliber of signings coming and I will be very happy.
  2. Totally agree DavidM and the amount of Fundraising certain individuals have done since lockdown started should ensure our club can start the new season on a sound financial footing.This just goes to show what a great set of fans we have and this club means everything to us.
  3. Fantastic news and great to have you back Pez. Can't wait to hear the other signings announced and just hope we can get our season started and get a Buzz around Derwent Park again.
  4. We will have to agree to disagree and only time will tell which one of us is right But i will be seriously suprised if all these Ottawa signings are going to go over to Canada to live and train so not exactly going to see much travel. Now if he had signed for a Club in Australia....................
  5. Don't recall the likes of Penky,Kay,Beswick,Bailey,Sidlow,Emmit,Hall and Bussey moving to Canada as Toronto were based in Yorkshire and were just cherry picking the players they needed to get promotion and in my opinion brought absolutely nothing to our great game. If he is moving over to Canada for a few years then good luck to him but I honestly can't see that being the case and if they gain the quick promotions they will expect then I am afraid he along with many others will become surplus to their requirements and be left in limbo and in that time New York will then come along and cause even more damage to grass roots rugby areas.
  6. Thinks this is a Stupid move for Dec and more annoyed that we have yet another player who the Club look after while injured and jumps ship at first chance. As a player he would have been better coached by Chris and it looks like Ottawa are just going to be another Toronto who will ditch him as they step up their ambitions in promotion. I really do not see what this is bringing to Rugby League as we will see no away supporters and how many Players have Canada now produced who could play in either team ? Toronto were going to finish bottom of Super League and would then have struggled in the Championship as their stupid money contracts would have emptied their finances.Ottawa and Toronto should both have to abide to an Overseas player Quota and Salary spend capped so that we are all on a level playing field regarding size and cost of squads.
  7. Speedway track has now been removed at Derwent Park and new pitch laid. Agree that the Owlerton was awful and totally lacked atmosphere but I still prefer the old grounds over the modern breeze block ones.Give me Cougar Park,Mount Pleasant and Craven Park Barrow any day.
  8. Totally the correct decision and as much as we are all desperate to see our Heroes back on the Pitch it must be safe for all concerned. Hopefully the numerous fund raising efforts that have been going on allow the club to restart on a sound financial footing whenever that is and I think we owe a huge thanks to the many individuals who have organised these.
  9. Both the Contestant and the Chaser guessed correctly.
  10. Sitting eating my Tea last night watching the Chase and couldn't believe it when I heard this question being asked by Bradley Walsh. Which Sport does Fui Fui Moi Moi Play ? The Big man on National Telly,Legend ?
  11. I personally don't see it being worth doing for lower level clubs and I am also not sure that Rugby should be re-started until a vaccine is in place as it is different to other sports due to the close contact nature of the game. Even with streaming if our average home gate is 900 I cannot see anywhere near that number subscribing to view our games and you are also losing Bar takings,half time draw and match day sponsors income so without financial support from the league we would be losing money every game.Lets just hope a vaccine is not too far away and we can all get our lives back to some sort of normal. Keep safe everyone and spare a thought for everyone who has lost a loved one during this awful Pandemic.
  12. Versus Hull on 21st August 1948 and their first ever team included the Flimby Legend John James McKeown. They won this game and followed it up the following week with a defeat against Batley at Mount Pleasant.
  13. Thanks for that Old Un it's great to get a reply from someone who was actually at the game where it all began. Prior to this game a couple of friendlies were played by a Cumberland Select team and if memory serves me right without checking my collection they were against Huddersfield,Hunslet and an England team.Were you at any of these by any chance ?
  14. That would be great. If you find out which game he remembers I will put a scan of that programme on here for you to show him and he can give his memories from that game.
