  1. Squad and signings for 2017

    Perhaps JD was including Liam Marshall in his count.
  2. Lions v Batley at Station Road 1936

    Station Road looked magnificent. Oh, to turn the clock back.
  3. Training ground

    It looked like Leigh East next to the LSV.
  4. Today v Worky

    A win is a win as they say but I am concerned that we don`t seem to be able to put games to bed once we have an healthy lead. Our second half performances against Oldham and Workington have seen a dropping off in intensity which may be due to fatigue caused by our players having to step up from League One.Hope the weeks break after Halifax can be used to refresh the players for Batley and the rest.
  5. Cup match at Sheffield arranged for a Sunday afternoon

    At the meeting at Sale FC Steve Wild said that the proposed kick off date and time stated above would be challenged under RFL rules as Swinton want a Sunday 3.00pm start .He went on to say that these rules specify that if both clubs cannot agree then the game must be played on Sunday.
  6. Major announcement

    Aptly put.Maybe we`ll be renamed Swinton Dogs!
  7. Rodhri Lloyd

    According to Alan Marshall he has not signed a contract with us yet. I suppose Wigan has released him and he is now a free agent.
  8. dropping like flies

    He reminded me of David Mills and I thought if he could get his fitness levels a bit higher he could have been a useful prop in the championship.But perhaps he is not that committed and that was why Batley let him go.
  9. JR's fans' pep talk on Lions TV

    Don`t want to be a pessimist but to move from 400 to 2000 regular spectators at Sedgley Park in 2/3 years is an almighty ambitious target It will take a number of top cup ties or play off matches to give the club enough media exposure to attract that amount of interest but we`ve only just gained promotion to the Championship. Here is hoping though.

  12. Jargon buster please

    Keith I don`t know where the term "landing page" comes from but it`s the first page you get when entering Swintonlionsrlc in your search browser which shows the club`s sponsors and the option to enter the club`s website.
  13. Today match

    We got out of jail today.York were the better team for most of the match. Jonny Preskey ran the games and tore us apart at times.He didn`t deserve to be on the losing side. It`s a hollow win but wel done to the boys.we`ll take it.
  14. Supporters player of the year

    My vote will only be for those players who have already committed to the club for next season. 1.Chris Atkin 2.Shaun Robinson 3.Mike Morrison
  15. Oldham

    I thought our ball supply to the wings was to slow and Oldham showed us how to deliver quick passes when they scored their last two tries.We need a lot more professionalism if we are to be promoted.Far to many dropped balls and stray passes.Oldham played it quicker around the play of the ball and their line defence was up on us much sooner.We need to play quicker all round.
