  1. Well done all, suggest the club put up an extra prize perhaps a pack of Town beers for every 50 extra numbers sold. That with the monthly draw is a good incentive for more people to join. UTT.
  2. Town website says 3 friendlies confirmed so is there one before these 2, perhaps either a top amateur club or a SL second team.?
  3. Need to have a good cup run then this year.
  4. Well done Scott as ever more power to your elbow.
  5. Sorry to hear that Blaine has left Town. Not surprised, thought we could used him in the halves like Rob Burrows particularly when Karl calls it a day. But as we generally have a smallish set of forwards we could not risk his size even with his speed and above weight tackling.
  6. Could we keep this post to the title, and speculate and comment as necessary. All team once promoted need to recruit well and within there budget or Pay the price for years after unless they get s rich benefactor Unfortunately my pension like us old supporters from the heady days of the 60s and 70s does not stretch as far as we would like Les and the board have done well to get us where we are and we have a chance in the league this club deserves but only if we work even harder to consolidate next year has our friends did. UTT
  7. Will Blaine Matwoof not move to scrum half in the future?
  8. Is there any chance that Tom Curwen will rejoin us?
  9. Thanks Wonky, you have made an old man if not happy but relieved.
  10. Could we please have some good news next. That for Me would include a healthy prognosis for Stevie Scholey and a return to the fold for Tom Curwen. Please could we have someone confirm the retention of our main core team.
  11. Well hopefully we will get an update at tonight's presentation night. Firstly we'll done to Chris and the rest of the team including volunteers and the playing squad, including those who will be elsewhere next year. We did not expect promotion given the difficulties of the preceeding 18months. A year ahead of Chris's own expectations and those of us who have known the ups and downs of the clubs fortunes for the last decade or in my case 6 decades A big well done for Les Smallwood and the BOD for navigating the club through the pandemic and the financial stress involved Thanks to our supporter clubs and particularly Scott, and our small diehard support, that has allowed our dormant support an opportunity to show the potential that exists if we are well run coached and have a successful and committed team to support. There are 3,000 out there at least who want TOWN to continue and succeed. I intend now post covid to get down from the far north at least a couple of times next year hopefully for the Cumbrian derby's We were all reminded of what we achieved in October 1977 and I can remember being there in all the rounds and finals from 76 to 79. It was great and we want more. Please could anyone fortunate to attend tonight's presentation, give us old and far flung supporters an update on the evening. UTT
  12. Just shows why we have to build our squad from the best of the local amateur teams. Where we are we can only attract travellers in the long term if they are attracted by local jobs, or our wonderful lake land environment. Some players will also not relish the step up to the Championship and will prefer the lower league games. 3 gone but more to come in, onwards and upwards.
  13. Totally agree. We had the euphoria of promotion a couple of weeks ago while for most clubs their season finished over a month ago. I expect the club will want the momentum going through the off season and will I expect that to start tomorrow at the presentation night. I just wish I could attend Let's be patient over the next couple of weeks as there will be a strategy to boost shirt and season ticket sales I have at least got my couple of 200 club numbers as usual and hope the supporters get Scott through his target sooner rather than later. Onwards and upwards.
  14. Otto, As the final would be the day after my 70th Birthday would certainly consider it. 380 mile 7 hour each way journey, but worth the effort if we go up.
  15. Loads of parking near the ground.Parking on a Sunday in the cloffoParking all throughtWith the good publicity being generated, the number travelling from Keithley and those possibly coming from Barrow, we should be getting a bumper crowd. The weather is set be be fair with a strong wind from the south, what gate are the regulars expecting?
  16. Are you coming up with s few mates to support us it would be appreciated
  17. Hope your right and we can join Barra and Haven in the Championship.
  18. Surely we can get it over 2000. We have built a crowd in the last 2 home games and had disappointing results With the extra week rest we should have some of our best players available for once This is not a final but we must treat it like that, or we will not make it this critical year.

  20. Well it's Keighley again, can we beat them for the 3rd time to make the final at home. That said our away form is better. Do we share the gate money in the playoffs.

  22. Was not sure who I wanted to win. Keighley it is then. Not much open play, just up the middle.
  23. David, Got a badge and a couple of emails, if I am correct. Regard it as just away of supporting the club, as don't get down very often, as I live away. Supposed to raise money for extra players and maybe our loan players are funded from it? Would be good if that was announced with the signings Given the difficult last 2 seasons and reduced revenues, am not too fussed and just hope we can get 2nd place and hopefully success in the playoffs.
  24. Basically we need to beat the Don's next week. That will be a very difficult ask given our injuries and yesterday's performance. Surely we can beat London and Hunslet but no game is easy this season.
  25. Many thanks Nero, It's just a shame we build the crowd of lapsed fans and get well beat. I live 380 miles away and don't get down often but it was a difficult listen today. At least the 1457 crowd should have helped the clubs finances a little and shown the potential. Next week is simple, win and we should be promoted, lose and we will probable get a rerun of today in the playo We would have settled for that at the start and can't be ad bad twice.
