email from the club.


Alan Kilshaw set out his plans for the season ahead with a members meeting on Thursday evening at Spotland Stadium.


The evening was well attended by current and former members alike and everyone left the room impressed with the fresh approach Killer brings to the club.

As part of the evening, Alan announced his first 4 new signing as head coach.

Former St Helens and local lad Lewis Galbraith has agreed terms for 2016 following a stint with Sydney Roosters u20s and then latterly maturing as a player under Alan at Sarina.
"Trigger" has played 1 game on the wing for Hornets previously on dual registration but is naturally a centre.

Former junior international Ben Moores is another young Brit returning from Australia to  sign for the Hornets.
Having come through the ranks at Warrington, the hooker or loose forward had stints with North and South Wales before heading down under.

The hard hitting Fijian has been impressive on the local scene for a num
ber of years and will join the club subject to visas once Mayfield have finished there season.

Former Warrington Wizards player Jono Smith joins from North Wales Crusaders.
The strike back rower was League 1 player of the year in 2013, is proven at this level and will add strike to the back row. Jono has turned down big offers from 2 clubs to join the Hornets promotion push.

The only departures confirmed to date are that of Dave Llewellyn, who has retired, and Liam Gilchrist, who will take a break from the game.

Tony Suffolk has also left the club to take up contract with Swinton Lions.
Suffolk made clear his intentions to return to the Championship in 2016 and had hoped that opportunity would come with Hornets, but that was not to be.
He agreed with the Lions a Championship only offer ahead of the play offs but would have stayed with the Hornets had they not been promoted.
With the Lions promoted 29 year old Suffolk will now get the chance to play Championship in 2016 and we wish him all the best for the future.

Current Hornets players to agree a contract to date are Paul Crook, James Dandy, Dale Bloomfield, Danny Yates, Brad Hargreaves, John Cookson, Alex McClurg, Jordan Case, James Tilley and Mike Ratu.

With Killer set to meet the rest of his squad by Friday and with 2 Queensland Cup forwards going through visa applications and various other local and British talent currently in talks, the 2016 squad will soon be locked in.

This whole saga is going to put a big dent in Germany's manufacturing sector, probably running into 10's of billions, and seriously damage their reputation & image.


VW has gone from Mr Safe, solid & reliable to Arthur Daley car sales in 1 fail swoop - bit like going from Cartier to Ratners :D .


Totally uncalled for ST, All my cars are pre owned classics, and nothing under hand like VW.




( and no I don't know how a bit of saw dust got in one or two gearboxes)

Diddy Dave see's Shaun McRae at the Seagulls club in Australia. Perhaps a little word in his ear, that there is a coaching job going at Rochdale.

Who knows a CV might be on its way from Australia.
