My three 'letters' were hand delivered today to the 3 councillors for my council ward, Claremont, even though my home is in Pendlebury.

 

Councillor Dirir - c/o the town hall

Councillor Pugh - home address

Councillor Murphy - home address

BBC Radio Manchester has just trailed an appearance by Dr Koukash himself, which will include discussion on the topic of his interest in the Lions, before 6pm.
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Don't want to pour cold water on anything but I thought you were not allowed to own two clubs. Or is Dr Koukash planning on just owning the development

Good luck anyway, hope you come through this a lot stronger.

This Salford fan just signed, too. RL just wouldn't feel whole without the Lions. Hope things turn out well.

What did he have to say?


Dr Koukash confirmed his interest in taking on Swinton Lions, but added it was far from a 'done deal' that he would do so.

He was asked whether his objective was to merge Salford and Swinton, or to have Swinton play at Barton and gave an emphatic "no" to both. When asked where Swinton Lions will play next year if he takes over the answer was Leigh. His vision is two seperate clubs, but he added that Swinton's "relationship" with Warrington would likely be replaced by a "relationship" with Salford although none of the details had been worked out.

Today he has issued a tweet saying that he's made his interest in Swinton clear, but it is 'up to the Council to provide them with a home first'. An indication that he means business in my view, and that he has very quickly and astutely identified both; the key factor in rebuilding the club, and; the key entity in giving him what he needs to make it happen.
