  1. 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
  2. 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!"
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

    Sunday drinks

    I think we went in the one under the stand. Didn’t realise there was another one, thanks everyone. Hopefully see you Sunday
  6. 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?
  7. Cracking win, never easy to go up there anytime in the year, even more so in winter. I said I would be happy with two wins in the first three games so hopefully can turn over Dewsbury at home this weekend
  8. If you are struggling o get rd of the memorabilia I will take it from you?
  9. Believe Scott Moore is signing back on for you guys
  10. Pro Carrier had a 2 year contract, virtually all the others are new sponsors. The old board did a lot of good, I don't think anyone is denying that but Mazey gambled when he thought he had enough support and it failed. Now is the time to unite and move on
  11. Surprised this hasn't got more replies, fantastic effort by the new board
  12. Dwyer as class for Swinton previously till we stopped paying him mid season and he went back to amateur rugby, gutted he's not coming back but good luck to him
  13. That doesn’t include friendlies, only official matches
  14. Pop up shop announced for Saturday 1-6 in the white swan
  15. I read somewhere there will be a pop up shop in Swinton next Wednesday with the new kit available to purchase on the day, still with Supro as per last year
  16. Oldham with 251, followed by hornets and Salford
  17. I’ll ask on Facebook and let you know
  18. Salford, used to play them every season in pre season friendly plus 2 a year in the old one division.
  19. Harry Aaronson put on his Facebook page he has signed for you guys on a permanent basis
  20. Mark


    Announced against Swinton. Supposed to be playing at your place (Crown Oil), enjoyed playing at mayfield last year against you so wouldn’t moan if it’s changed to there.
  21. Played 3 times for Swinton first team, first game on 14/9/57 and last game on 23/11/57. Is listed as a second rower in the swinton lions book
  22. Board have guaranteed money for next season. It’s 2021 where the questions lie
  23. Unless they artificially inflate attendances like they tried to do when Swinton first moved to Gigg Lane they will found out next year, our pridebuilder have already said most of the donations come from M27
  24. We have basically just become a franchise for a Leigh supporting chairman who believes his own hype. People at the meeting where he is quoted saying 80% were for it are basically saying it was 50/50 at best and no proper vote took place. If he wants to create a new club, that’s fine but at least be honest about it.
