Topics I've Started

Derek Clarke

On behalf of Lions supporters I'd like to thank the Leigh club for posting an excellent tribute the our former hooker 'Clarkey'.

New website/old website

25 January 2015 - 05:32 PM

If you put 'Swinton RLFC' or 'Swinton Lions' into a search engine only the old website comes up.


Shouldn't the old one be taken down or whatever?


What needs to be done so that only the new one pops up?



Thunder crosses over the Tyne

According to the BBC Red button and Thunder's website we will no longer be playing Gateshead Thunder as they have moved north across the Tyne to Kingston Park, Newcastle to play as Newcastle Thunder.



Admission prices at Park Lane

21 January 2015 - 09:38 PM

Whilst looking on the sparkling new website I had a quick check at the Match Admission tab.


Whilst concessions and under-16s look excellent value at only £5 and £2 respectively, £15 for adults looks a bit steep to say the least and doesn't look in proportion to the other rates.

£15 may well put many under-60s off attending a 3rd tier match at a fairly basic ground such as Park Lane.


In my view, we may need to reconsider this £15 charge or the terraces could be occupied mostly by seniors and their grandchildren.


Perhaps about £12 is more like a sensible figure.

Barker and the M.E.N.

19 January 2015 - 12:35 PM

After far too many years of neglect by Mr Barker in the M.E.N. we have been told recently that the 'leopard has finally changed its spots' and is now showing signs of mending his ways regarding the Lions.


Click on the page link below to see how our coach's forename is still 'Jon' in Neil's books.





It's enough to make you suspect it's all done to prolong the anti-Swinton snub isn't it?
