First Team Star
Aug 31, 2018, 6:16 PM
Thornton United dropped out of the WRCAL premier during last season and were starting again in the YAL (their Sunday team in the Bradford Alliance remains unaffected). They lost several players to Toller, who are new in the WRCAL.
Toller and Thornton teams played a pre-season friendly which ended up with a big split in the Toller club. That ended up with Toller's Sunday team being wound up and a load of players leaving ...to be replaced by what was going to be the backbone of Thornton's team by the sound of it.The YAL committee were already extremely upset with Toller, who had been accepted into their league, but forgot to tell them that the WRCAL had also accepted them - they will be even less amused with Thornton's demise.
Who knows what their reaction will be if Toller apply for the YAL again if the WRCAL folds...
By the way, just the WRAGG league left to declare its'constitution in Yorkshire (the current divisional lists on full-time are incorrect).
