Guisborough back in DN1
« on: May 23, 2017, 05:31:32 PM »
From Ray Kelly Ref; N Yorks Sub Committee  last night.
Guisborough in DN1 - Boro level transferred to Yorks 1.
Not sure if  Boro have  appealed

Good to meet old friends again Ray.
Would have been OK to meet new ones in Y1, but economics of travel etc make this a sensible position to be in.
Shame no Acklam in here as well, but I suspect they will waltz through DN2 after their valiant efforts in Y1 last season.

This doesn't seam fair when Middlesbrough havve already done a stint in Yorkshire1, Acklam have done two whilst Guisborough, a Yorkshire club, who can join the A19 south at the Tontine have not been in Yorkshire One even though they are a Yorkshire club

On the other hand Guisboro' have been affiliated to the D&N leagues since they started, I believe, while Middlesbro' have been with Yorkshire up to a couple of years ago.  Admittedly both are geographically in Yorkshire so better one of them than say Stockton or Barnard Castle

I'm sure Middlesbrough would consider an appeal if they 'won' the mileage count

There's also Redcar to consider of course as the third of a trio of Yorkshire clubs currently in the DN1 listing

The Tontine point is an interesting one since that just might produce a lower cumulative travel than Middlesbrough's. One for Number 6 to consider perhaps?

Why cant there be 15 teams in DN1 to include Middlesbrough and Guisborough, and cover there home games with Durham Referees, seems like a better idea.

[/quote The whole thing is ridiculous. Whoever gets transferred doubles their travel, which is never good for player availability. The RFU needs to urgently sort something out re this rubbish. Last year Penrith were placed in North One East, which meant a long trip every other week.

It makes sense to level transfer a Northumberland side to Cumbria, Ponteland are probably the closest in comparison.

Apparently not.  Google Maps seems to show that the journey from Middlesbrough Rugby Club to the Tontine is 7 miles shorter than from Guisborough Rugby Club.

The corresponding level 7 North West league to DN1 seems to be Cumbria and North Lancs.  The North Lancs clubs will be further away from Ponteland than inter Yorkshire travel.

What about the factor that it's easier shorter and cheaper and less time consuming for the 13 other clubs in D&N 1 to get to Middlesbrough than to travel further to Guisborough

I quite enjoy the bus trip  8)

Also if in any doubt, arguably Middlesbrough's greatest achievement was in the Yorkshire Cup Final when they beat Roundhay (now Yorkshire Carnegie) 10-9 in 1976

if Yorkshire is so big is there not an argument to split the county? east and west or north and south? then get rid of all these Yorkshire teams from D&N. However i would also miss the bus trips... Rockcliff had a great day at Guisborough the season just gone
