What has changed at Scarborough? A losing bonus point and 4 wins on the bounce since new year?
one of the dingy’s was blown off course from Dover!
Hence the 9 debutants!

On a more serious note…
It is worrying to hear about further crowd abuse at Moortown (all though from last season). This has been a documented problem for them for sometime which needs addressing especially if clubs continue to feel that the spirit of our great game is being damaged.
I’m not sure if it the player base Moortown are recruiting from? IE league players. I’ve been to a number of amateur  league games over the years and the crowds can be very hostile, abusive and vociferous to opposing players, teams and supporters. Just a thought.

Nice, racism.

The “Crowd abuse” that has been referred to above (from last season) is so far from the truth.

The truth been the old crocs linesman decided to try put his hands on one of our young supporters during the game and all he was doing was supporting Moortown in a tough contest.

I wasn't at the Old Crocs game at the weekend but had heard from supporters who made the journey over that the OC crowd was out of line, abuse towards the ref at levels not seen at Broomfield in the past. Its usually a great atmosphere down there but I've never known it spill over, hopefully a one off.

On the Moortown front though, those in glass houses...

Congratulations to Moortown !  Old Crocs are formidable opponents on their own patch, so to win over there is a great result.  I am sorry to hear of the unsportsmanlike behaviour towards the referee at the end of the game. We have a shortage of referees in Yorkshire, and need to keep hold of the ones we've still got !

On Saturday 10.2.24 I watched Moortown 2 v Heath 2. It was a very open and competitive game, despite the muddy conditions. The score of 7 - 26 to Heath was probably about right. Heath were the much stronger team, but Moortown's young side never stopped trying.

It is over 20 years since I was last at Moortown. As a neutral, I enjoyed some banter with several of their members who were friendly and made me feel welcome. It's great to see the improvements which have been made at Moortown , both on and off the pitch, over the last few years.  Thank you for your hospitality. The spirit of rugby is very much alive at Far Moss. !

Thank you for the kind words Broughton. We were struggling with injuries and availabilities across all three sides last week so we did what we could against a very strong Heath side. The main thing was getting the Lads to play. I'm so happy to hear the hospitality was good. Good luck to Heath 2nd's for the rest of the season.

Interesting one this. We had a nightmare first game of the season but notwithstanding with hugely mitigating circumstances which was reflected in the dock. Adding to this I think, for us, the Yorkshire Discipline panel have been first class. Forward thinking, helpful but firm. We reached out to Yorkshire for some Club support as many on here and other vessels all comment on Moortown's discipline and crowd. At a very helpful meeting our data was brought forward. As a senior section, referee satisfaction was in the top 3% of the County, with some very high scores for players, officials and crowd. This is echoed home and away. Our crowd score home and away is fair to mid with some great scores and some room for improvement.

Of late I have taken time away from the dug out and with the spectators that some complaint about. It was very, very clear to me that some opposition supporters simply don't like singing and volume. Some of the language and vitriol that comes back at these young Lads for singing things like "We're Moortown aren't we" is outrageous. I ran touch this season at a top placed Club away....wow! I was chased up and down for 20 minutes and called a cheating see you next Tuesday and the very same Club last season has a spectator removed for calling the girl on the gate a prostitute. Needles to say, the Lady sec of the Club apologised and we took no further action.

The message we are getting is to report this behaviour and make Clubs accountable, which, does go against what we are like as a Club. But, we certainly, as a whole do not treat the officials the way I saw the poor chap on Saturday treated.

Glass houses.....We can see out easier and it's not pretty.
