i think that in the current economic climate lack of banks lending etc, the demolition of the willows may not take place for a couple of years thereby enabling swinton lions to carry on playing there? along side community use for schools, local teams, salford A team, and the ground would forfill the criteria set out in the rimmer report too, my only worry would be could we afford the upkeep of the willows on the gates we would get. To my mind this is one of two solution's i can see that are viable in the short/medium term for swinton lions as no other viable plans exsist to my knowledge at the moment, another possible idea would be for swinton lions to ask the council if a deal could be worked out whereby swinton keep playing at the willows and the council grant planning permission on the agecroft site for whatever the developers were planning for the willows site and give them the land there and the council get the willows site in return, salford council would then own the willows and could lease it to swinton and other community groups/clubs to use. i hope this post makes some sort of sense as im busy sinking a few beers. a reasonably positive post me thinks

I do agree that if we have to another season there wouldn't be a disaster but I like to think that by then Agecroft will be our new home.
Rose tinted glasses ...maybe lack of planning who knows but at the end of the day I like to trust people and from what I have heard from the number of meetings last year and the heritage launch meeting i think we are heading in the right direction and bear in mind the club never fell out with Sedgley RUFC so that would again remain an option.
No doubt Mr Kidd will inform us all in due course as is his perogative.
