New Coach

59 posts in this topic

Yes. Maybe not everyone's choice but I think now, rather than name calling, we have to give him a chance. At least Ian and Marlon will still remain as assistant coaches and hopefully help keep the belief in Swinton that the players showed yesterday.

Well done to all 3 and hope this begins a new era for Swinton RLFC.

Get behind them. Come on you Lions!

Well said Tess.

I hope he may accept an invitation to attend Watto's testimonial event on Thursday and perhaps take a few questions off the fans.

No doubt the doom and gloom boys will be on here soon.

Sorry Alan to say but I am very disappointed by this appointment, this to me shows the ambition of our great club.

We was told that there has been loads of interest in this job, why did he get the job? Thats all I want to know, was it John's appointment or was he told Gary is the new manager by Warrington. This appointment just does not seem to add up, sorry Alan but thats how I am feeling tonight.

I will give him a chance to show that he is a good manager, for me it is a another sad day in the eventful world of Swinton.

If he has the Tony Smith mentality & makes us a good team - he will do for me.

Good luck to all of you that can stomach this farcical decision by those running the club.I truly admire your loyalty,I assume that you were te few who were quite happy to see the club relocate to Darwen a few years back.Feel desperately sorry for Watto and Marlon Billy who without doubt have earned the right to at least been given a mandate to the end of the season.

It should have been Marlon and Watto for me. If 8 people applied for the job I fail to see how a Warrington youth coach would be the best shout. It's not really a point of "giving him a chance". He might win every game until 2020, but we should be looking for our own coach to take SWINTON forward, not Wire youth players. I'll still be going to every game, I'll not turn my back on the club, I don't think that helps anyone.

Whatever you do dont go on to the RLFans website, lots of people enjoying our demise. I thought RL was a sport where we all stuck together through think and thin. I guess not.

A Warrington spokesperson said: "All at Warrington Wolves would like to thank Gary for his years of valuable service both as a player and coach, and for his invaluable contribution in developing the strong youth structure we now have at the club. Gary has made many friends whilst at Warrington and he will be missed at The Halliwell Jones Stadium but we wish him well for this new stage in his career."

Not quite the attitude you expressed towards Salford City Reds when they were experiencing financial problems a few short months ago!

Even 1 Wire fans agrees with you (which is about as many as on here actually)!

Reading the article it seems that they are sad to see him go. He has served a long appenticeship under a lot of experienced coaches, knows the players we have explicitly and has applied for the job as head coach of our club. He isn't doing both jobs.

He's not my first choice but I am prepared to see what he brings and has to offer. Is it fair on the lad to string him up before he's even had a chance to make comment? I think not!

I drove down lumber lane on my way home and saw one of our big name signings from previous seasons mr holroyd going the other way.

A man who claimed a good wage every week but managed to get a five match ban for his behaviour and could barely be bothered to bend his back most others

Would we prefer a team of sad tired signings stealing a living like him or the young lads we saw on Sunday killing themselves for the Lions

I really struggle to see what difference it makes as to whether we sign youngsters from Warrington for a year or have a team full of holroyds here for the same length of time

I don't know what difference it makes as I say. ..but I know which I prefer. ..and its not mr h.

Now I'm disappointed that its not Watson for coach but I really do guess that chambers has been involved with the team prior to Sunday's performance.

I also strongly suspect that he wont be a duck egg

Im prepared to give him a chance

Who cares what people think?

I've listened to moaners and abuse in my face for donkey's years.

You know what I just laugh back

Good luck to our new coach.

Far from it - it was painful enough witnessing Ian Talbot get the Hornets job.

I dont know why we will go. What kind of a threat do we pose to suoer league

All super league clubs need to do is rein in the wages they pay to the first teamers and plough it back into their academies. Re start the older academy team lesgue. Dual reg as manifested this year goes and we go back to how it was before and say the experiment failed

Why why why is every change the end?

All i can wish for Mark is at the end of this season there are at least 10 clubs from the championships that dont want to play SL contracted players 'en mass, and then we can reform the championship as it was last season

There is one big parallel with the appointment of Stevie Mac. He has become a teacher and is now wanting a part-time coaching appointment. Experienced assistant coach at Warrington, coach of England A and Cumbria, an impressive cv for a new coach at Championship level. We may have just landed a top man due to his personal circumstances, Warrington link aside. Time to cheer up.
