The club is delighted to announce the renewal of the much-valued shirt sponsors Glossop Caravans for the 2019 season, whilst also sponsoring the Bradford fixture at Heywood Road
Swinton Lions are delighted to confirm that Glossop Caravans have renewed their sponsorship deal for 2019 and have also been named as Main Match Sponsors for our prestigious first home game of the season against Bradford Bulls on Sunday 10th February, kick-off 3pm.
Glossop Caravans will again be a part of Swinton’s journey in 2019, sponsoring the shirt and the upcoming fixture against Bradford Bulls in the Betfred Championship at Heywood Road.
Glossop Caravans have grown from small beginnings back in 1976 to become a one-stop shop with a huge range of 600 new and used caravans and motorhomes – plus awnings, accessories and comprehensive annual service checks and repairs.
Former Swinton Lions player and now joint-owner, Stan Laig enjoyed three seasons with the Lions in the late 60s and early 70s. He was a more than capable hooker, but found his way to the first team blocked by Swinton legend Derek Clarke, not to mention the likes of John Carey, Ian Entwistle, and finally Welsh international, Dick Evans.
Although mainly employed in the “A” team, Stan did, however, manage one outing in a Lions’ first-team game, courtesy of a pre-season Gallie Cup match against St Helens on 9 August 1969.
On the renewed deal, Laig said: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor Swinton Lions this season.
“I had a great time playing for the Lions myself and it’s good to be able to give support back to a club that gave me so much. I’m looking forward to seeing the team play and see the developments at the club and wish them all every success in the 2019 season.”
