Given that the rest of the Championship clubs have been preparing for weeks already then we certainly have a lot to do in the next 8 weeks. (When I say we I do not mean the fans)

I look forward to seeing the Cunning Plan spring into action. It was described as the "Featherstone Rovers model" by Gary Hetherington.

No mention of an RFU sanction for this? As it states 100% support presumably the players owed wages had to accept a fraction of their contract value.

Sets a very dangerous precedent for the game if this goes without any penalty but hey ho, the RFU not getting much right lately.

A relief we have a club, now to get a team that hopefully means we can survive in the Championship

Not the outcome I had thought likely. I am most curious to see how we now build a squad and support staff and even more to see how we get on on the field. I hope I am in for a pleasant surprise but I fear that the end may only have been delayed for a year.



If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

Thanks for your support in these difficult times.

Wonder who are the poor sods who will now receive just 15% of the money owed to them for the goods and services they have provided?

There is a clause that says that if you repay the debt or get creditors agreement within 6 weeks of the insolvency event there is no points deduction.

The question is what did RFU count as the insolvency event. I suspect in reality it was more than 6 weeks from first payment being missed to now. But I think the RFU put the telescpe to their blind eye until the CVA negotiation was announced.

I'm just grateful that we still have a club, albeit it in a very basic form. We are under-resourced in so many areas that the risk of collapsing again may exist for a few years.

For good and bad reasons, the club got into a position where it could only meet a fraction of its debts. Everybody suffers:players, staff, creditors and fans.

But we have a club. I'm delighted it still exists. The club has given me so many great times over so many years. The fact that there are still fans - though smaller in number - is one of several factors that may have convinced creditors and the RFU to support us in time of need. Had there not been loyal fans, why bother?

So, lets hope we are at the bottom of the trough and now on the way back up.

Churchill was quoted as saying "When going through hell, keep going!"

Glad to say I was wrong about the clubs demise and I hope we can slowly build again.

I just have a nagging doubt why YC does not attract the benefactors it should with having such great facilities. When most clubs in the championship and the premiership would be over moon with Headingly and Kirkstall.

As I've said before on this site, I think any benefactor would like to be able to run his own show. Headingley is a fantastic venue but it would not feel like home to a tenant.
