I can't help you chaps-Port website reported new recruits and that is all I know. Same website reported Port's U16 SO turning out for Sale U18 but that just confirms the fact that young talented players are now being tracked closely by the big boys.

Lets see what happens Saturday.

The story fits in with the narrative, but I have no way of knowing if this is the truth. There are a handful of other players that have departed under similar circumstances this season, so you'd imagine there's some truth in there.


Would certainly make sense DD. It's something albeit at a lower level that Loo have had to do this season. We could have a stronger 1st team but have to play boys in the highly competitive 2nd team league. It's always going to upset some.


There are always going to be players that don't buy into what the club are planning, but I think it's going reap dividends in the future. Having a strong and competitive second and third team will ultimately mean more quality for the first team. It's certainly a more sustainable model than relying on players been brought in from elsewhere to bolster the firsts when we have players out with injuries or those hanging up their boots.

Are you both suggesting Waterloo and Chester have better players sometimes playing in their 2s than in their 1s and this is part of club selection policy?

Loo have had to bolster the 2nd team because of the strength of the league & still struggled in 80% of games. So yes, there are several players turning out for the Two's that could/should be playing 1st's. But as I've said before, the 2nd teams of Chester, fylde, sedge, caldy would probably be at the top of NW1.
