02 October 2019

Following the press report that Swinton Lions has been placed in Special Measures, the club wishes to issue the following statement.

Following the press report that Swinton Lions has been placed in Special Measures, the club wishes to issue the following statement.

Last night the club received an email from the RFL asking us to provide information regarding our management structure moving forward. Bearing in mind seven directors have just resigned this is a perfectly reasonable question from the governing body. This issue is in the process of being satisfactorily dealt with.

We have also been asked to provide a sustainable 2020 budget, a standard procedure, which we will also be in a position to comply with by early next week. The Club wishes to state categorically that the RFL has levied no sanction against the club; we are NOT suspended from signing players; and all existing contracts will be honoured 100%.

A meeting is planned with the RFL for early next week and further information will follow.

Meanwhile the fans’ meeting will continue as scheduled tomorrow evening taking place at Swinton Royal British Legion, Cheetham Road, M27 4UQ. Proceedings begin at 07:30pm.
