I believe a statement is on the Trust website but in a nut shell the meeting was called off as the club hadn't heard back from one of the investors and also Blake Solly of the RL had to call off the meeting today, hopefully now to take place on Monday.
Subsequently due to a lack of anything to report it was duly cancelled.

Thanks for the clarification.

Would appear that the RFL rep has cancelled on a couple of occasions now.............so glad to see Swinton's future is on the RFL's priority list............:(

The RFL showed exactly where its priorities lay, by at best turning a blind eye to the blatant abuse of the DR system by the Lions and Wolves last season. I still wonder whether the RFL actually gave encouragement to the two clubs to "work the rules", to help avert criticism going its way from the Wolves management. They have turned bending over backwards to the money men into a chaotic artform.

It appears that facing up to Swintonians is right at the bottom of the priorities for not only the RFL, but also for the present owners and prospective new owners - which gives me a sense of foreboding about what the future of the club is going to look like, when its eventually unveiled to the unworthy masses.

Beit Warrington reserves or a Salford feeder team - thanks, but no thanks!
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

So, we don't yet know anything other than a number of players have put pen to paper and already the black cloud is overhead professing to know all and that we are all yet again doomed!!!!!!

So far as the present status of Swinton Lions is concerned, there's a lot to be angry about.
