May as well say Wigan is in St Helens or Bradford is in Leeds. What it is really like is saying, isthat Leigh is in Wigan. Both Leigh and Swinton are separate towns with long histories, that were lumped in with a larger town/city in the 1970s by local government reorganisation. I am a Swintonian first and foremost and always will be. In fairness to Mazey, I thought his plan had some merit, but the communication of it turned into a disaster and as someone noted on here a significant number of fans decided to stick with tradition,albeit that we play on the other side of Manchester. Who knows what the future holds, tbh Sale is a cracking little ground, and they are excellent landlords, it is just in the wrong place. Not sure 7 or 800 fans rattling around in the AJ Bell is the answer either.
