Rumour has it that Bill Quinn won't take on the debt and the RFL won't let them just walk away from the debt and reform, so if true, we have an impasse.


Look's like they are letting Crusaders do just that though. Hope you boy's can fight hard, unfortunately haven't made it to our away agmes with you in recent years due to various reasons but do look fo ryour scores a few old Widnes lads have been in the side and you also like many have good RL people.

Hopefully all goes well and 1st game next year see's Widnes travel to your nest in the NRC :thumb:

I hope something can be salvaged from this and your club can continue in some form.

Heard from one of the people involved at fylde that Sale sharks are lining up a potential takeover keeping the base at fylde, not sure how it would work but supposedly a similar proposal to that which Newcastle falcons were considering with Gateshead a few years ago

Not heard that one about sale, thats a new one on me. Cant see how sale can takeover the panthers but still be based at fylde and play at fylde`s ground? Surely they would want the rugby league team to be located where sale play ( stockport i think? Then again the RFL really need a team at fylde to hold the northern rail 9`s and the kids games they have at fylde.
So i guess anythings possible when the panthers are involved. Lets hope if true they get it sorted asap as players are signing for other clubs(swinton,rochdale) so may have a team but no players left

if it comes down to it and we still have a club to support next season, but the majority of players have left (despite a large number giving verbal agreements not to go elsewhere if panthers survive) then there is plenty of local talent at the amateur club within blackpool to give a slightly competitive team, there are plenty of players there who can cope at cc1 standard, I personally can vouch for many of them as I myself play along side them. Some of whom have proven in the past they can do so whether it be in nr9s or even cc1 itself, that is, if the new club want to go down this road.

The players gave MC a verbal agreement that they would sign, with MC no longer at the club due to reasons he saw fit the players therefore do not have any security and have to look elsewhere for a club. The players have been 100% loyal to the panthers but as is still the case no one knows whats happening. Clubs are signing players and as we arguably had some of the best players in the league its only common sense other clubs want our players. You cant blame the players, they want to play rugby and its unfortunate that us at blackpool are still in limbo. I for one wish anyone that leaves our club the best in the future. As for playing amatuer players from the local area, i would imagine every panthers supporter wants 17 lads from blackpool in our squad but the reality is that isnt going to happen. People like brett whitehead and joe bullock are very good local talent but play in wigan, blackpool has no chance to compete with the wigans etc.
Lets hope first and foremost we have a club then build on that and make it a community club and substainable for years to come.
