I thought Councillor Colin Stout’s comments about the Shay Stadium were miles ‘offside’ but fellow Brighousian D Ward (Your say, March 30) is just as daft it seems.
The two teams that play there are ‘glorified amateurs’ he says. These glorified amateurs have won three Championships between them in twelve months, are pressing for Football League and Super League status and have good attendances.
If you sold everything in Calderdale that didn’t make an instant profit there would be nothing left to sell by now and if you named everything in Calderdale that taxpayers’ money had gone to support we would be changing it to ‘Clonedale’. Mr Stout and D Ward should get out more and who knows, maybe go the Shay and see what they want to ‘give away’.
