Just signed up for the Rochdale league, can’t wait to get started!


Yep mate you’ll love it… I play in salford league and I’m also joining rochdale league so I will see u there…try get a few games in to avoid injuries …I’ve missed a few games though injuries and it very frustrating…Ok good luck


Would like to get some practice in first, but haven’t played for years!


If a few lads read this we may be able to get a little 5 aside game going before season starts…so if anyone fancies it let us know👍


Yea hopefully once it gets nearer and more have signed up we can get a couple of practice sessions organised. I live in Bury and can pick up on the way if anyone needs a lift.


Hi There,
Really looking forwards to getting started.
Historically my game was rugby, and I am a big guy, weight loss via football is not a new game, but a real challenge.
Robbie’s Back!


I live I Whitefield so maybe we could look at Heywood they have some good pitches :+1:


Nice 1 Robbie…it does work…hopefully we can get 6 or 7 more players and we can get a couple of games in before start of season👍


Hey Robbie

Played a bit of Rugby league must be getting on for 20 years ago now.

Heywood would be fine with me. Get a few more lads on board and we can look at sorting something.

Better get down to sports direct, my boots have probably been eaten by moths by now lol.

What boots are best astro or are short stud, firm ground boots better?


I have both astro and firm ground boots but i prefer astro but I don’t know what rochdale pitches are like


My lad has set up a what’s app group…I’ve no idea what to to do but it’s…Extra games for mvf roch…might be easier to communicate on that…according to him😲


Yeah WhatsApp would be easier. Don’t know how to find the group without a number!


I’m in Portugal at moment so will sort it properly when I get home at weekend👍


Not jealous at all, bet it’s warmer than here. Rained all day.

No worries, enjoy Portugal!


If any of you boys want extra games before season starts put your numbers on here and I will add you to the what’s ap group and we can try get something sorted👍
