  1. It doesn’t matter at all, I try to use the best written English that I can, even in text messages I’m afraid, but that’s just me. I don’t particularly like it when people make fun of other people’s spelling or grammar which is why I find it very ironic when some people do and get it wrong themselves. I’d rather have a poorly written piece in praise of Town than a troll with perfect English.
  2. If you say so, you obviously have an intellect way too advanced for a simple soul like me to appreciate. Or maybe you cocked up and you’re too precious to admit it, I’ll leave that for other people to decide, I know my own thoughts on the matter.
  3. Oh the irony, a comment about someone’s grammar with the wrong spelling of capital, and a capital letter wrongly used.
  4. From Towns Twitter feed. Workington Town @WorkingtonTown · 1h Contrary to the report in the @newsandstar neither @OfficialHavenRl or Town have called our games off. To confirm our match against @westbowlingrlfc is ON at this point in time.
  5. Just been told that the team trained this morning and that as of now the match is definitely on!
  6. Can’t be difficult can it, I’m sure that we’re all perfectly happy with our employers discussing our contractual conversations on an open forum. Perhaps hatethejam will start by posting all his personal details, job offers, rates of pay and family life issues so that we can begin to make this forum as open as he would like!
  7. Old age is a terrible thing, fairly sure he scored two tries against amateur opposition though!
  8. I think his last game before coming to Town was a world club challenge which I think Wigan won. Would anyone turn down a player with that sort of CV? Maybe didn’t turn out as well as people hoped but in the same position would you not sign him again?
  9. He scored two tries for Town though, think it might have been against Wigan (St Pats!)
  10. Apologies folks, absolutely no idea why on Earth I posted that our AGM is tomorrow night, now edited to the correct date of next Tuesday 28th January.
  11. We are holding our TRSC annual general meeting next Tuesday night, 28th January. The meeting will be held in The Tom Mitchell Lounge at Derwent Park this year due to the unavailability of our normal home. The AGM will start at 7:00 pm followed by a members evening which is open to members old and new. We hope to have representatives from Town management and playing staff present, there will be the usual quiz and a chance to have a good craic above the season ahead. Subs this year will remain at £5 for adults and £1 for juniors. We hope to see as many members as possible and it would be even better if we can attract some new faces along! Hope to see as many of you as possible. Allan Lamb Hon Chairman.
  12. Are Rydiard and Shorrocks Cumbrian, if not it would appear that you’ve realised the weaknesses of your Cumbrian side and are looking to bring in the travellers that you need!
  13. Don’t know about Shorrocks but would be very surprised if Martin Ridyard was going to Whitehaven. Didn’t he sign a new contract with Leigh last November, no doubt Leigh would want a decent bit of cash to release him and cannot see a move to Whitehaven being a good move when you’ve just been granted a testimonial!
  14. Quite a change in opinion in such a short space of time, I wouldn’t call a six point win with a try in the dying minutes a healthy win against a team from a lower division with a load of trialists in!
  15. The information that I put on earlier was from my attendance at a shareholders meeting and came directly from Allerdales finance officer. The value of the lease is calculated using a method laid down in local authority legislation. As stated earlier, the value of the lease to Town is limited by the conditions regarding its use, restrictions on sub letting etc. and the fact that any buyer (Allerdale) has to remove the existing stadium before they could achieve full value on the open market. You also need to factor in the fact that Allerdale cannot take over without first building a replacement stadium. Once all that is complete the value of the land would be significantly increased, as owners Allerdale would not be subject to the conditions imposed on Town, something that our councillors didn’t bother mentioning when they made what appears to me to be a political decision rather than what’s best for the area.
