  1. 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!
  2. Stebbo good in front of a camera, he spends more time on the pitch then some of the players Cant see us getting much out of Featherstone on Sunday, just to be competitive would be an achievement. I expect Leigh, Toulouse and Feth to be the top 3 clubs come the end of the season
  3. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. If you are struggling o get rd of the memorabilia I will take it from you
  8. Believe Scott Moore is signing back on for you guys
  9. 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
  10. Surprised this hasn't got more replies, fantastic effort by the new board
  11. 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
  12. That doesn’t include friendlies, only official matches
  13. Pop up shop announced for Saturday 1-6 in the white swan
  14. 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
  15. Oldham with 251, followed by hornets and Salford
  16. I’ll ask on Facebook and let you know
  17. Salford, used to play them every season in pre season friendly plus 2 a year in the old one division.
  18. Harry Aaronson put on his Facebook page he has signed for you guys on a permanent basis

    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.
  20. 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
  21. Board have guaranteed money for next season. It’s 2021 where the questions lie
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. I’ve been attending Swinton games since I was 3, I’m not 44. This year I’ve brought 3 replica jerseys for myself and one for my 2 year old daughter plus T-Shirts, season tickets, etc. I, like a lot of Swinton fans will not support a new club, basically they have just raped us of our history and used it as a vassal for a ego driven chairman to become manchester. We may not be many but we put our hearts and souls into the club, it feels like they have been ripped out today.
