Untitled[edit]

Assessed as "Start" standard with "High" importance. A section on amateur RL in the area may be useful, as would some photographs (particularly any from previous eras) and a section on notable players. Details of recent results/seasons need to be written more generically (don't use "last season", use "season 2006" as this doesn't date) and kept to a minimum (unless of long term significance) Tim Fellows 03:49, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Batley or Morley?[edit]

"The British Rugby League Records Book" has Harry Bedford at Batley, whereas the 1890 Home Nations Championship article has him at Morley R.F.C., which is correct? Best Regards. DynamoDegsy (talk) 13:19, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

First match[edit]

I've found a reference to Batley's first match against Bradford Zingari taking place on 2 October 1880 in this book - Delaney, Trevor (1991). The Grounds Of Rugby League. Keighley: Trevor R. Delaney. ISBN 0-9509-9822-2.  This would pre-date the challenge match between the two rugby sides to decide who would be the new club, which seems illogical. Can anyone shed any light on the matter?

Perhaps Batley Athletic played the game before becoming part of the cricket club.GordyB (talk) 23:11, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Laurie Gant at Batley?[edit]

Is the player named Gant named in this match programme as playing Fullback for Batley during the 1944–45 Northern Rugby Football League Wartime Emergency League season, Laurie Gant? Best Regards. DynamoDegsy (talk) 14:13, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
