Recommended Posts

Err? Ok.

What i mean is they understand the value of getting fans to a game...

In most cases...if you have a ticket to a game.....public transport heading towards the stadium is free..

Now obviously im not saying transport would be free to kick off with...but after a year or two...when the club & bus company understands the value & concept them maybe,in future, travel will be incorperated into season ticket prices or membership schemes...

OLDHAM RLFC

the 8TH most successful team in british RL

I'm with you now. Tottaly agree with you. The only trouble is, it appears; it's only the supporters who've got innovative ideas. The club, the council seem to be dinosaurs with no imagination or innovation.

Stalybridge pub anecdote alert.

I played cricket in the town many years ago and afterwards ended up in this pub with a really long name. A couple of pints and I was off home and sort of forgot about it.

A few years later I'm sat at a bar in Cyprus chatting to a soldier from one of the bases. The girl behind the bar, a Brit, gets out a Guiness book of records and starts firing questions at us. One of them was "What's the name of the pub with the longest name". Turned out to be "The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn" in Stalybridge. I'd been in it and didn't realise.

If it's still in existence, I might have a pre-match swift one in there, just because.

I'm sure a couple of years ago whilst on a bus replacement for rail journey from Manchester to Dewsbury it passed that pub on its way from Stalybridge station and I'm sure it was open.

 

Cheers Roger(Batley fan)

Rifleman's still open https://www.facebook.com/The-Old-Thirteenth-Cheshire-Astley-Volunteer-Rifleman-Corps-Inn-139891059358966/

As is Stalybridge's pub with the world's shortest name "Q" just on your right as you leave the railway station.

Small claim to fame from the town that gave the world "It's a Long Way to Tipperary"

I like AL FALL's song idea, as "Tipperary" was written in Stalybridge.

Maybe it could go something like:-

 

It's a long way to go to Staly,

It's a long way to the Fold ( without your mother )

It's a long way to go to Staly

With a team so fine and bold

Remember Watersheddings,

Whitebank - we were there,

It's a long, long way to go to Staly,

But OLDHAM's right there.

 

Or summat like that?
