Topics I've Started

Lions TV

28 August 2015 - 11:56 AM

Wonder why there are no Lions TV highlights from last Sunday's home match against the All Golds.


Any reason for this?

Rugby League Journal

17 August 2015 - 09:40 PM

The latest issue of the Rugby League Journal has an excellent double page feature concerning how the Lions may have benefitted from an unexpected 'Papal blessing' when they took to the Old Trafford pitch in 1987 against Hunslet for the Div. 2 trophy.


Pictured are then club official Steve Moyse, skipper Les Holliday with the trophy, an '80s players/officials group plus legends Albert Blan and Bob Fleet with the Championship trophy in more recent times.


On another page under the heading 'Unsung Heroes', one such 'hero' is our very own '50s/'60s hardman George Parkinson with a picture of 'Parky' touching down for a try. On the page opposite there's a full page devoted to big-hearted Peter Smethurst, former Lion and a club coach who sadly passed away far too soon.

Match at Wrexham this Sunday kick-off 2.30pm

14 August 2015 - 06:25 PM

Just to remind those travelling to the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham on Sunday afternoon that the kick-off is scheduled for 2.30pm, not the usual 3.00pm.

The club have just announced that our former ace goal kicker Ian Mort has rejoined the Lions.


Let's hope he still has his magic touch when aiming at the posts.



Club website - Billy Williams

Its stories like this which make a really good website, making people aware of things that matter in sport and life in general.


Billy has a page dedicated to him on Wikipedia under the heading William Williams (rugby) if anyone would care to have a look sometime.
