Yorkshire 1 / Re: Who’s in, who’s out!

Just to add to the debate about clubs choices on whether to, or not to pay directly or indirectly players in Yorkshire One

Before the start of the season each club has to sign to confirm it meets the new regulations...

From season 2018/19 clubs will, if they wish to receive financial benefits from the RFU, be required to submit an accurate and completed signed annual declaration confirming if players have been paid and the total value of those payments. Clubs will be free to exceed the maximum payments laid out in the regulations, but in doing so, will become ineligible for RFU financial benefits

New Regulation

The FAQ Document is an intresting read on what defines benifit in kind, i'm sure it will have a few club officials squirming when they have to sign on behalf of their club, at the risk of losing RFU benifits.

For clubs whose men’s first XV team plays at Level 6 and below: the threshold is zero save that the club is
permitted to engage one paid Player Coach only up to a maximum of £10,000 and no more than 50% of which
shall be in respect of his/her playing duties.


It appears to be about choices, comply fully, tell them you comply and take a risk, or waive the RFU benifits goodbye and go your own way.

i understand that clubs can attract an overseas player in various ways with out actually giving them cash. it is a lot more difficult to attract a local player who you are not willing to pay , the only reasons are the culture of the club and the level of rugby you are offering.

It doesn't it just provides the bitter on here with something to moan about if they get beat by a side that does pay or has overseas players.

Couldn't agree more. The origin of the player should have nothing to do with it.

What if they've already done those things? Or those things are already in good working order?

I appreciate you're attempting to facilitate a debate, but if the youth set up and infrastructure were developed to an extent where no further investment was required I doubt there would be a requirement to pay players. There would be a constant feed of new talent from said youth system.

I can’t think of any Y1 team that doesn’t have any overseas player(s)

Middlesbrough havent had an overseas player for years. Furthest player out from the club is Northallerton.

Why does it matter if you have players from overseas rather than paying more locally based players large sums of money?

Coming from up north I don't understand the culture of paying players in the Yorkshire leagues. Paying players just ins't nessecary anywhere near this level and is unsustainable. West Leeds are evidence that paying players isn't required having finished 3rd in NE1. My oppinion is if someone has some spare cash lying around and wants to help their club they should look at the clubs infrastructure and youth setup.

To ‘T’ guru

I understand it ok . I know why the lads will take what’s offered as well . Encouraging this isn’t the right thing to do and I genuinely believe that clubs Paying players to massage the chairman’s ego by climbing leagues isn’t good for the game or the club itself . Simple economics of supply and demand now mean average journeymen joes are getting good money rather than clubs developing their own lads .  It is simple though .. you are responsible for declaring your taxable earnings, and most  players have good income already .

Now stop taking the Pisces !

It happens in all sports and that’s the way the game goes unfortunately, in all honesty money does also ruin the game a little for the players as they play more for the money than the love and pride in the shirt on their back ,  any how,

Back to the scrip of who’s in and out



Stink has moved to moortown hasn’t he ? Who’s he brought into the fold ? Care to share  my old fruit cake?

Guisborough have never had an oversees player or paid a player. The furthest distance a player travels for our current team is Cleadon (Sunderland). He's being doing this since the Under 15s.

So in theory our whole team are Guisborough lads born and bred...strong in arm and thick in head :P
