  1. If we lose at Whitehaven away Wayne I agree, last chance saloon
  2. Swinton - Wonder of you, fans sing a version called wonder of blue
  3. Anthony and Mark Nicholson a couple of seasons back for swinton, think they started at Leigh Miners
  4. How did Arron hall play for you guys?
  5. Folly Lane is opposite the old swinton ground, station road and certainly not in Warrington. Aaron was a bit of a fan favourite being that he came through Folly, was treated abysmally by our former chairman. Gets the ball out well in the tackle but needed to improve his fitness
  6. He signed for Swinton around 92 and played for a season and half, thought when he looked class when he wanted to
  7. Swinton signed an Aussie test prop forward called Ian Thompson in the 1980's, probably around 86. Came with massive headlines in the MEN and was terrible, think he lasted 10 games before we got shut of him. During this time and I am struggling to remember his name, we signed an Aussie who came over, played one reserve game, got bladdered and assaulted a club official and got sent back home.

    2021 Squad

    Squad is coming along nicely with Fairclough and Bennion replaced by Brooks and Ridlayd. Need a couple of quality additions looking at the other squads but I have total faith in this board to deliver
  9. We had Simon Knox play in an admittingly poor team at Swinton and he was like a machine all season and earn't himself a move to Leigh
  10. I remember Norm Brown telling me a story where someone said to Alva "your not the quickest player in RL you know" and Alva said "I know, our kid is!"
  11. For swinton in the 80’s it was Danny Wilson and Green Vigo, both on and off the field you never knew what was coming next!
  12. Thought you played the conditions better and didn't make silly mistakes. Your half backs kicked better then ours as well. We never win at your place so didn't have it down as a must win game, was hoping to have beaten Dewsbury last week to have 2 wins going into the game but never mind.
  13. I think we went in the one under the stand. Didn’t realise there was another one, thanks everyone. Hopefully see you Sunday
  14. Hi, we have a full coach coming over on Sunday and I’m a bit worried that the bar might not be able to accommodate us if we all decide to go straight in the ground for a drink. Is there anywhere else around near the ground?
