This week’s message from our Chairman, Iain Coates…


8th April 2017

Today is our final home game of the season and we find ourselves a lot more relaxed than we may have been had the lads not got a tremendous result in St. Helens last week.

This means that if the teams below us fail to get maximum bonus point wins in their remaining fixtures we will be playing at this level next year, a target we set ourselves at the start of this campaign.

However I know the players and coaching staff will not want to rely on others and will be determined to take care of things themselves starting today.  We also have two other home games here today with our 2nds entertaining Stockport and our 3rds against Preston Grasshoppers, so now would be a good time to thank all the players who have represented our club throughout the season and also remind them Players Presentation Night will follow the final games of the season on the 22nd April.

On the social side of the club we have the following Kids Easter Party on Good Friday 14th April at 7pm.

The Annual Men’s Dinner Saturday 6th May with Guest Speaker John Bentley – This is almost sold out, so please if you intend to join us do it now!!!

May I now welcome todays visitors Warrington their Players, Officials and Spectators with particular welcome from me personally to their Chairman Richard Woodward who always goes the extra mile when we visit Walton Lea Road.

The Match Sponsors today are Benchmark Security Solutions.  Managing Director Dave Green has always been there for this club to make sure our onsite security is everything it should be often acting as our consultant (usually, no sorry, always) free of charge!  I hope Dave, his staff and guests enjoy their day with us and thanks for everything and I urge all members if they are thinking security to give Benchmark a call.

Without officials there would be no games so today it gives me great pleasure to welcome John Pemberton, Alan Blackburn and Chris Coop who are the referees provided by the Manchester and District Referees Society for the three games we have at home today, it’s up to everybody associated with our club to ensure they enjoy the experience.

Enjoy the game.
