I refer you back to my previous post, with particular reference to social media, fan engagement etc. Hopeless.

Whilst I get the fact it isn't great news to report someone leaving the club, especially one of such profile and the trumpeting they gave when he arrived, it seems they're trying their best to ignore this until they can probably mention it in passing alongside some better news.

Or maybe no-one at the club knows yet.....

Geech's duties were handed-over to Stirlo on the latter's appointment. Since then he has made a few (unpaid) appearances on behalf of the club. He is nearly 73.

It is a surprise?

Well.... I mean... I'm the last person to try and put a positive spin on our current situation because....well.... we're f***ed aren't we. Just waiting for the inevitable confirmation.

However, it is worth pointing out that during the first week's of close season, you wouldn't really expect to see anyone there would you?

I remember working with a bricklayer from Northalerton - brilliant artisan, loved his job and at 69 years old was laying more bricks (and a lot straighter) than guys less than half his age. When he thought he had better retire, his wife said great we can go on lots of pic-nics.
Alas it was too late...

Perhaps Geech is in a similar situation?

He has given plenty to rugby over the years that's for sure.

Now you tell me how they are meant to write something, get it signed off (and that will also need legal sign off so that will take some time) and issue before it's out on social by his nearest and dearest?

I see it as a good sign - if the club was going to wither and die then he'd not resign.

Exactly what I said Leeming.

I just think the whole handling of it and posting on twitter is a poor show from him.

Maybe he didn't know what she was posting.

In any event, I can't see that this is much of a surprise. The Yorkshire project is dead, we're not sure whether we will keep our academy and we have asked him to work for nowt. At least he is hanging on until the official end of the season.



If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.
