A vision for the future of Swinton Lions RLFC

Our Mission

  • To give the supporters a direct say in the policy making mechanism at the club, by offering financial and practical support in exchange for a shareholding and seats on the board.

  • To promote links with the Swinton community i.e. through the local authority, the amateur game, schools, businesses and through efficient marketing.

  • To provide a long-term vision in an effort to galvanise all Swinton supporters past and present.

  • To seek the relocation of the club back to its rightful roots, because the future well-being of the club is dependent upon the realisation of this aim. 


Message from our original Honorary President - Alan Buckley

The dismantling of Station Road took away a large slice of history and activity from the people of Swinton and surrounding areas.

After over a decade of being in the wilderness, this attempt to add to that history deserves any amount of support it can get.

I wish Swinton Supporters every success in their bid to waken the 'slumbering Lion' and to re-open the 'Lions Den'.
