Those who think that the FA trophy is not financially worth winning, then think again.
At the moment we have not yet won any money but a win on Tuesday’s replay with WSM would put 5k in the bank and then if we go all the way there would be a total of £84000 prize money plus gates plus TV coverage. So lets get behind the lads and help them on the way.


For those interested in the prize allocations please see:

WSM beat Bath yesterday - and Bath had been unbeaten in their previous 12 games according to NLP (with 11 wins and 1 draw) so we need to be "on our game".

We'll be missing several players on Tuesday, so it will be hard work.

Mind you, apart from the prize money incentive, theres the incentive of proving the NLP wrong yet again - they've tipped WSM at 5/4 to beat us !!

If they were right with their forecasts we'd be strugging to get out of double figures this season

That's odd because the laegue table has them botton with just 5 wins and 13 defeats out of 25 matches. Someone is telling porkies

Ah got it!

They are talking about the previous 12 matches between the two sides.

Well spotted, Mr H - I only looked at the report - didnt double check against the table - typical of the NLP to do something like that.

Noticed the comment that a few players are going to be missing tomorrow ,I know we have a couple of teachers in the squad so their omission is understandable,so any ideas how many more are likely absentees?I'm still going but it would be nice to know if a reasonable semblance of a first team is going to be fielded.

You have misread that. Allow me to explain in 13 competitive games against Bath it was the first time we have beaten them. Having lost 11 and drawn one i hope that helps.
See you tuesday

I think Andy is taking it very seriously, big money to be won. Team will look something like :
O'Reilly
Gledhill Moore Duku Skinner
Owen Drury Mckimm Walshe
Haworth Evans

Well that will make us the third conference side to be thrown out of the competition. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Gledhill isn't eligible to play for us in this round.

Walshe is apparently struggling with the ankle injury he picked up on Saturday (at least , according to RK)

And well played on Saturday against the Halifax.
