Just out of my curiosity, does Lumbs Lane fall under Agecroft?


This has crossed my mind recently too. The old M.E.L. sports field on Lumns Lane was a good field at one time. I even played on it once in my youth for the old Swinton Supporters RL team in mid '60s. Within the last year or so it's been enclosed behind a high metal fence and looks like any other piece of derelict land. A bit remote from the 'top road' but is further away from the Salford border area. Clifton railway station is a very pale shadow of its former self (Clifton Junction) when regular trains ran towards Manchester, Bolton and Bury (13 arches).

None of this applies to you btw!


'btw'? Sorry, but can't figure out what this is supposed to represent. Interpreter please.

Hang on, penny just dropped, 'by the way' yes?

it's a public Rugby League forum. And I don't think anyone is moaning. Just talking about the benefits and
pitfalls of where a possible stadium will be located.

Personally I think Mr Roddy is doing a fantastic job at Swinton. And he wouldn't just take a building plot that wasn't in the best interests of Swinton RLFC.


You tell 'em again buster! Publish and be damned!


And yes, I totally agree John Roddy (and his board) is doing a great job. The downfall of the old regime a couple of years ago has opened up an exciting new pathway for the club and us all.
