Saturday 18th May (1430):

West of England League
Oxford Cavaliers v Somerset Vikings
First match at Cavaliers' new home, Merton Village Hall OX25 2NJ.

Can be doubled with football for the paper chasers at 1200 or 1230 - Heyford Athletic v Garsington - Oxfordshire Senior League. Merton village is just off the M40 but to get there you have to go via Bicester or Islip.

Sunday 9th June:

1500 Sheffield Eagles v Featherstone Rovers - Championship
1730 Doncaster v Oldham - League One

Currently listed at their own grounds, Olympic Legacy Park and Keepmoat Stadium respectively, but wouldn't be surprised to find nearer the date that both games are being played at the same venue especially as Doncaster often have to move out around this time of year when Rovers relay their pitch.

It states on the Doncaster site that game "is scheduled for TV", didn't know anybody screened that division.

I've noticed that line for other League One clubs. Mystifying.

The fixtures on Workington Town's website list Borough Park as the venue for the Coventry Bears game on June 16. Derwent Park's pitch is being widened and relaid, spelling the end for the speedway track, in preparation for Workington FC sharing next season.

That 'Scheduled for TV' line appears when you click on all of Doncaster's fixtures on their website.

On that same day, 9th June, Sky Sports are showing live Swinton Lions v Toronto Wolfpack at 6pm which can be doubled with Leigh v Halifax or Widnes v Barrow at 3pm or North Wales Crusaders v Newcastle Thunder at 2:30pm.

It would be difficult to do a double by public transport anyway, but anyone hoping to get the tram to Brooklands for the Swinton match should be aware there is currently a strike scheduled on the Metrolink that day.

The strike I warned about has now been cancelled, I am happy to report.

is this correct?
I am sure I could check but just looking in before work
Devon were at Bovey Tracey last year and Newton Abbot would be more local for Teign
it should be noted these matches can be 11 or even 9 a side

Should have been a triple header but Saltash Essayons are unable to raise a team for the third game against Devon Sharks so this one is now off.
The schedule is as follows:
1200 Dorset County Giants v Teignbridge Trojans
1400 Tarka Storm v Cornish Rebels

After this all teams will play each other once more making for a 6 game season. Other home grounds are:

National Conference League side Leigh Miners Rangers are again staging a league game at Sutton Park, the home of their academy set up, to coincide with their annual beer festival. My visit in 2017 is covered on page 94 of the appropriate where did you go thread, to give more details on the facilities on offer, but it is certainly a ground worthy of a visit.

Egremont Rangers are the visitors on Saturday 22nd June, and kick off is currently listed as the standard 1430 on the RFL website, but 1500 on LMR's own website, so that will need confirming nearer the time.

Doncaster v Oldham this Sunday is being streamed live on Ourleague. Looks like the reason for the 5:30pm kick off is the Doncaster Half Marathon taking place earlier in a day. This match is being played at Keepmoat Stadium but annual pitch maintenance means Doncaster's following two home games - 23rd June vs Newcastle Thunder and 14th July vs Whitehaven are both being played at Featherstone and their home quarter final vs Sheffield Eagles in the 1895 Cup will also be played elsewhere.

In my search to find something on Sunday 23rd June to combine with Leigh Miners at Sutton Park on Saturday 22nd, have stumbled upon this fascinating tie in the quarter finals of the Womens Challenge Cup.

Keighley Albion (League 1) v Wakefield Trinity (Super League) - 2pm.

Home ground: Crossflatts Cricket Club, Keighley Road, Bingley BD16 2ER.
Despite the name the pitch, by all accounts, is anything but flat! Admission is free.

It's a few years since I've been to Albion's ground but, as I recall, it's a perfectly flat pitch. The ground is on Airedale's floor, sandwiched between the bypass and the former main road through the valley. As rugby league pitches in the hillier districts of West Yorkshire go, it's about as flat as they get!

It has to be a joke. While working in Leeds for three years, I lived on the moors above Haworth (where it's properly hilly), and most days caught the train into the city from Crossflatts station. Where the cricket and rugby league grounds are simply isn't hilly. It's the floor of Airedale. Aerial photographs of Crossflatts also indicate it's flat. Still, no matter. I've been to Keighley Albion once, and doubt very much I'll find a reason to visit again.

Talk yesterday of Bradford Bulls maybe quitting Odsal next season with Tetleys Stadium (Dewsbury) and Horsfall Stadium (Bradford PA) being mentioned as potential destinations. More financial issues have come to light , only small and probably manageable but the rent the RFL are charging the club for the use of Odsal seems to be a sticking point with the club.

1 September - Oldham
8 September - Whitehaven

Their final game at Webb Ellis Way vs Whitehaven has now been brought forward to Saturday 7th September with a 2pm kick-off at the request of the visitors as they believe this will allow them to bring more supporters down from Cumbria for what could be a title clincher or promotion party if they have already won the league by then.

A resurgent Bulls team would surely need a larger capacity even with the temporary stands talked about in the article and Bradford City is too big. Coupled with the need to remain in the city what is the best option for them if they quit Odsal?
