23 December 2019
The club is delighted to announce that Barry McGuinness, Managing Director of Daisymill Technologies Ltd has joined the Swinton Lions board.
Swinton Lions have continued their off-field preparations for season 2020 and beyond with the appointment of an additional Director.
Joining the Swinton Lions Board is Barry McGuinness, the Managing Director of Daisymill Technologies Ltd, a leading local mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractor, and who provide expert mechanical and electrical solutions to a wide range of industries, including design and project management. The company recently agreed a new partnership and sponsorship agreement with the Lions for the 2020 season.
This now brings the membership of the Lions’ Board up to five, following the recent additions of Salford City Councillor Stuart Dickman; Swinton business woman Lindsey Smethills; Supporters’ Trust Chairman Stephen Parker; and Stuart Fletcher, a senior official in a government law department. They each joined pre-existing Operations Director, Steve Wild at the Lions.
Barry said, “It’s a great honour and privilege to have been appointed as a Director on the Board of Swinton Lions. Being a local lad it’s a proud moment to be in a position to help move the club towards a bright and successful future, both on and off the field.”
On behalf of the club, Steve Wild, added, “We recently welcomed Barry and Daisymill Technologies to the club as a valued sponsor, but I’m now really pleased to reveal that behind the scenes we have also been progressing detailed conversations about the club and its future. Those conversations progressed to a mutual interest in formally adding Barry to the Board.
“We are not so naïve as to believe that there aren’t some major challenges ahead, but the Board is taking immediate steps to frame a sustainable and exciting future strategy, and to place the club in the best possible place to meet those challenges head on. I’ve no doubt that Barry will prove to be a key figure in progressing our ambitions, and on behalf of everyone at Swinton Lions I’d like to extend him a very warm welcome to our famous club.”
