Swinton Lionesses vs Fryston Warriors

20 May 2021

The Swinton Lionesses open age side will make its debut this coming Sunday afternoon, kick off 2.30pm, when they take on Castleford based outfit Fryston Warriors in the RFL Women’s Merit League.

This historic fixture will take place at Folly Lane ARLFC’s Blue Ribbon Field in Pendlebury.

Damian Ridpath, the Lions’ Director of Development, said, “It will be fantastic to see our senior Lionesses team take to the field on Sunday for the first time. It is history in the making and the players are very excited to be making their debuts for the club.  Our under 16s Lionesses have already set an impressive bench mark, and the senior team will be keen to emulate them and and produce a good performance.”

Steve Wild, Swinton’s Operations Director added, “I can’t speak highly enough of the hard work and preparation that has already gone in to making the Lionesses a reality. Martina Greenwood and Steve Thirkell deserve great credit for moulding two new teams in the middle of a pandemic, and it will be proud moment when the team takes to the field on Sunday. But having created a team there is still much to be done. We are determined that our Lionesses will be a success on the field and the Board will continue to back them 100%.”

Although we appreciate that many of you would like to support the Lionesses, due to Covid protocol there will be a limited attendance allowed on site. Please can we ask fans to be respectful of this and look out for the regular updates which will be posted on our social media platforms.
