    First Friendly

    match report didn't say much - couldn't really as Salford won by a large margin - but I think all teams are feeling their way right now while playing friendlies - probably would have been better to play Salford as the last friendly and not the first ………..will see how the squad does against North Wales and Oldham and as Oldham beat Barrow last week I think it will be a good test before Sheffield away. How about your match against Mayfield ?

    Hope we (Swinton) get to play Oldham again next season in the Championship and not in League 1

    2019 Championship Predictions

    Excellent post, I think there will be a few surprises in there hopefully when the front runners fall over but with such large squads it hard to discount Fax and Bradford.

    Garry Schofield predicts:

    I think Bradford will be up there, Sheffield too, and Leigh certainly cannot be under rated, not really sure about York, of course they are brimming with confidence coming into the league. As for the rest of us well, we have all been tarred with the same brush, e.g. will struggle to cope...…….well I hope we prove the pundits wrong. Sadly everyone sees Swinton (my team) in the bottom two

    Mid table finish

    Well as a Swinton fan I also hope that we not only avoid relegation but make mid table, like yourselves we want our teams to do well and it will be an extremely competitive league with most clubs assembling decent squads. Who finishes were is difficult to predict, I think the top six clubs will be (in no particular order) Toronto, Leigh, Toulouse, Sheffield, Bradford, Widnes...…….Look forward to our matches next year.

    2019 Championship Season Preview

    I agree with Gandalf - but I do think the squad looks good and if they can gel as a team and concentrate for the whole of the match, I am sure we will turn quite a few teams over...……..how good would it be to go the Sheffield and win - but will not be easy as Sheffield have been spending loads assembling their squad...……….roll on the friendlies and the season proper.

    Swinton squad news for 2019 season

    Sorry Gandalf - with the signing of Oscar Thomas, we have lost our chance for the stand off spot - actually he is a quality signing and can play at stand off as well as full back, I am really excited now as we have a well balanced squad, which I think will do well next season. Well done to the club in securing Oscar's signature.

    Swinton squad news for 2019 season

    Its official now Bracek has gone to Leigh - understandable with it being his home town team and being mates with Duffy, no word on Andy Thornley but rumour has it he is also Leigh bound...……. Was disappointed to see just one line of thanks to Josh Barlow from the club after they mutually agreed to part company - I know his on field performances were peppered with poor discipline but he was fully committed to the team. Still need a recognised stand off - otherwise it will have to be Gandalf...……:)

    Swinton squad news for 2019 season

    ok I turned 61 last year and played in most positions (as I remember, I think) - so looks like we have the makings of an "over the hill" team

    Swinton squad news for 2019 season
