Wakefield knocking on our door ...again

Recommended Posts

BillyBulldog,

I wasn't having a pop at Batley at all. The point I was making was that when Dewsbury played at Mount Pleasant back in the 90's, the playing surface got so much useage on it that it turned into a quagmire.

The same thing could happen to ours is Wakey come to town.

fair enough lupset sorry buddy

And to think the sand used to take kicks made no difference to the playing surface.

One things for sure you knew who had busy games compared to those who didnt!

Dewsbury have already made an announcement as I referred to earlier: the ball is in Wakefield's court. Until they decide what they intend to do we won't waste any more energy on hypothetical issues. Michael Carter indicated that they will make a decision by September.

We wasted enough time on this last season with no benefit whatsoever for the club, so would be unlikely to repeat that mistake.

I predict no decision to be made before the end of the season. Carter will be holding out for something, as I do think sharing with us is a last resort.

However, saying that, if they do come we must need some notice to start making changes I.e terrace at the other side, possible new turnstiles/bogs ??

I think they can only squeeze 1600 into the overblown bus shelter if it rains Fred, which it does a lot! So if Leeds come to visit most will have to stand on milk crates on Owl lane :onthequiet:

What do you think the attendances would be if they come to your place?  Will their fans follow them or desert them?

 

 

The simple answer is we don't know Fred - only the Wakefield fans could realistically predict their response to such a change.

 

PM is quite wrong of course (isn't he always - it must be some sort of unprofessional pride) in that the end terrace will be fully segregated from the South Stand by next season, hence allowing the capacity to be increased. This work is progressing notwithstanding Wakefield's arrival - if the do come then it is likely that terracing will also need to be installed at the Western end to comply with SL requirements. (I can't imagine how much work will be needed at Mount Pleasant when they gain promotion.)

Segregation will be available next season! Does that mean we can stick the 200 Dewsbury fans that turn up to watch Batley win can be shoved at the windy end (And I don't mean the bit where Coolie stands). :stinker:

we had better crowds when we were in a division below.Lets face your team deserves better support then what you lot give.

 

I have a feeling that the dogs may have better crowds than us next season - but not necessarily increased attendances. Lets face it, we have dwindling attendances this year with a team that, poor as they have been, will still be stronger than next seasons, given our almost certain financial constraints.

Us lot, give our club incredible, loyal and generally unstinting support, much as 'you lot' give your club. It is those residents of our towns who would not be considered to be 'us lot' who need to be enticed through the turnstiles.

Hmm, using the stacks of money that they don't have, no doubt. I suspect that, if they do come, we may have to get used to their presence for a while longer than predicted.

Dewsbury Trinity has a certain ring to it!

Typical of Garry Hetherington - generous to a fault I hear.
