I've got some great quotes from the lads and they'll be added to the website story later.

Immense credit to the head coach by the way. He's the bloke at the coal face selling his vision of the team for next season. The BOD is just trying to give him the tools & backing to do just that. A united Swinton of players/coaches/fans/Management team is the only way forward.

As far as we can deduce there was consultation via the championship clubs' quarterly forums of January and April this year, neither of which were attended by any member of the current BOD. I attended the July meeting but by then it was pretty much a done deal. But I gained the impression that many C1 clubs favoured a shorter fixture list owing to the considerable costs of travel.

Sorry, but at this exact moment in time we would be speculating. Our last meeting with Salford Reds was about 3 weeks ago, at which we were simply informed that Dr Koukash was on schedule to meet the terms of the 3 month exclusivity period agreed with the council. We do of course aim to continue dialogue soon and glean more detail. Maybe Dr Koukash's twitter followers might like to ask him directly!

Great to see and hear John Duffy at tonight's Trust meeting, something which we plan to make a regular event. It was a really upbeat informal meeting and I'm sure John was made to feel very welcome. We're also hoping to organise a social night shortly involving the coaching staff and the players.
