Lions Strengthen Ties with South Trafford Raiders!

05 May 2021

The Swinton Lions Foundation is delighted to announce that its community support for South Trafford ARLFC has now been extended to include the provision of a brand new playing kit in preparation for the Raiders’ 2021 season!

The Lions’ backing for the Raiders is part of a wider and ongoing programme to encourage and develop Rugby League participation in Trafford, in partnership with Trafford Borough Council.

Peter Brooks from South Trafford ARLFC said, “The support of Swinton Lions has enabled South Trafford ARLFC to run a team in the North West Counties Under 15s League for 2021. Funding support for a new high-quality kit not only makes the team look good on the pitch, but it helps send a message to the local community that we are well organised and have the support of our local professional club.

“South Trafford Raiders is the place for any junior player in Trafford who is interested in developing their skills to enjoy Rugby League over the summer months.”

Lions’ Director of Development, Damian Ridpath added, “We are delighted to support South Trafford Raiders under 15s with the provision of their new playing kit.

“As the only professional team located within the Trafford Borough, supporting development within Trafford is a priority for our Lions’ Foundation. In addition, we will be supporting community Rugby League with a range of initiatives moving forward across Greater Manchester over the coming months.

“Last week we were delighted to see two of our community partners, South Trafford Raiders and Folly Lane, play out an entertaining friendly fixture, a game in which both teams had plenty of future talent on display.”

The Raiders’ fantastic new kit has been designed and supplied by the Lions’ team wear partners, Supro.
