First Team Star
Oct 24, 2014, 12:06 AM
The fixtures were released a few days ago, and it may be of interest to some that both Rochdale and Barrow are experimenting with Saturday evening games. Rochdale have four home games with scheduled 5.30pm kick offs on Saturdays, whilst Barrow are playing the majority of their home games on Saturday evenings, with ten games kicking off at 6.30pm.
Both should offer plenty of opportunity for doubles, either with football early and late in the rugby season, or with amateur rugby league through the summer months.
One other piece of not unexpected news is that Swinton have left Leigh Sports Village, and will be using Park Lane, home of Sedgley Park RUFC, as their regular venue. They used the ground a number of times in 2014, and were based there before they went to The Willows. The RFL were reportedly unhappy with the venue for hosting Championship games against teams with a large travelling support, but of course there will be no problem in playing Championship One games there.
Edit to add, so as to keep news of ground changes in one place, that, as has already been reported in other threads, York will be based at the football ground at Bootham Crescent.
