  1. Gateshead are not in the same league as London in all their guises for grounds but apart from the International Stadium and Kingston Park, I have seen then at Darlington and South Shields FC and they appear to have also used Blaydon RU, Percy Park and one in Gateshead. Including Monkton stadium that's 7 at least That may pit them about level with Oldham but way behind Sheffield. I can think of twelve for them and suspect there are more. This includes Woodlands Road Athletics stadium where only half of one side was available and St Marys College which had no cover and Dewsbury needed to
  2. Think I might be the person Hopping Mad referred to I have added up a total of 121 grounds for top level League but including amateurs I have a total of 488 This is primarily due to the southern sides constantly moving so it includes 6 venues for Birmingham, 8 for Leicester7, 5 for Valley Cougars As for one offs, Dorbrevice in Czech republic for an international although I think South Birmingham may have only hosted one fixture at Edwardians RU
  3. This was touched on the Sheffield Eagles thread below The majority of people on here probable know Martin, as he gets to all Eagles games, many others from Finals to championship 1 and is well known throughout the amateur game. More importantly he appears to be liked by all. I have spoken twice, since my post on the other thread to Martin. He suffered a fall and has damage to his hip He advises he is likely to be in hospital for at least four weeks. He is however doing well and is being cared for excellently by the NHS. As those who know him would expect, he has set himself a
  4. I have been speaking to Martin by phone almost weekly Next time I speak I will check he has seen the club message although it is almost certain he has and ask if he wants to update or if I can send a message on his behalf He does have an account on here but has not posted for sometime
  5. SA 16 BDH 20 2005 Cov 24 SA 36 2005 Bramley appears to have been 23 July source St Albans v Sheffield Hawks prog 2005 SA 6 LS 26 SA 4 Hemel 2 source prog v CC 26/2/2006 which was played as a one off at St Albans RU. Source prog for that game. I have the teams listed in the prog but not the actual teams
  6. I have actually recounted and got to 40 Carlisle, Newcastle, Blackpool. Preston, Blackburn, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Wigan, Liverpool, Man C, Man U, Bradford, Leeds, Hull, Huddersfield, Doncaster, Sheffield United, Sheffield W, Barnsley, Notts F, Mansfield, Coventry, Newport, Bristol,R, Reading,Watford, Southend, Brentford, QPR, Orient, Fulham, Chelsea, Wimbledon, Crawley, Charlton, Millwall, Charlton, Gillingham, I think Northampton has staged an on the road game as well as possibly NCL.West Han could also be argued Arsenal, Tottenham and Middlesbrough are planned
  7. Managed to name all the English ones apart from Twickenham where I named the main ground Been to 50 for RL, not all super league and including for football all the English ones. Seen London on many grounds including Gillingham, Orient, Esher, Millwall, Leicester, Wycombe and Aberavon but missed many mostly in pre SL days including Chelsea, Hendon, Wealdstone, Crawley and Kingstonian Incidentally, just thinking about it for 10 mins, I came up with 36 of the present 92 having staged RL and had been on 20. All those I though of are post 1980 Anyone want to have a

  9. Think they played a Regal Trophy tie at Wasps in Sunbury One of the others may be in Saint Albans
  10. I could do with some guidance on this wife and children were due to fly to Philippines last night Emirates only offering rebooking but we would have to pay any increased cost. The youngest is nearly two so very low fare paid but they would want full fare if we rebook for after his birthday additional cost likely to exceed £1000 and not willing to pay that amount, when no guarantee won’t happed to new flights and my ongoing financial circumstances are like every ones else’s uncertain looked at the legislation and seems does not apply in exceptional circumstances
  11. Hi I have programmes for all these what are you looking for as can help with ground addresses etc and possibly dates for the seasons they were members but nothing on players Celtic Rooster will have much much more if he looks in
  12. Picture of Sherwood wolf hunt prog on their Facebook page so clearly will be one easiest of the matches tomorrow for me so heading there. Been before and decent facilities off field and for anyone interested almost next door to the Worksop direction platform at MW station
  13. Not sure why I posted where the clubs play Apart from the armed forces all six teams south of Nottingham drawn away A one in 64 chance in normal circumstances At least BARLA said in advance one year southern teams would have to travel
  14. Thanks for the info, didn’t realise Rhondda had moved Twitter shows this to be Glyncoch. This has been used before by RL. I think it was Valley Cougars and was a one off but managed to find out about the game attend Will probably go back if Rhondda are drawn at home in reply to other poster, RAF have used Cranwell in Lincolnshire recently but other venues in the past so not guaranteed. They don’t use the stadium pitch Navy are at Portsmouth, decent ground with stand. It is technically on military land with a gatehouse but no problems with access
  15. The usual venues for the southern sides are Bedford Tigers play in Biddenham about three miles from the town centre, they have been in existence at least 15 years and superseded other teams from the town. Modem facility off field but nothing pitch side for spectators Hammersmith Hill Hoists and West Tigers. The first are an almost all Aussie team and the second have I believe a strong kiwi connection. Both have used Chiswick RU and Wasps training ground in Acton / Ealing. A match at Skolars more likely if drawn at home London Chargers. League matches tend to be at Old Blues whi
