A few weeks ago we were visited by Blogger – Onion Bag. This is what he had to say about his day out at Twist Lane…
Leigh Miners Rangers are one of the most respected amateur rugby league clubs in the country, with a proud history of producing talented players who go on to make a name for themselves in the professional game. It is not hard to see why because the the whole attitude around the Club is very impressive.
Today’s game against the tough tackling visitors from Cumbria was a ding-dong, rip-roaring, end to end crackerjack of a game. A real credit to the league.
Miners took a 20-6 HT lead but Egremont came powering back in the 2nd Half to get within two points. From then on it was end to end action with Miners securing the victory after enduring a sustained period of Egremont pressure and numerous crunching tackles.
Twist Lane is a great venue. Situated just a 5-Iron away from the Leigh Sports Village the place was a hive of activity. Upon arrival the welcome given by the clubs officials was very impressive and made you feel at home right away. The Club produces a very good programme of decent reading and and Award Wining Website all put together by the very professional and very likeable Jeff who like many at this level gives up his time for the club for love,not money. He does a brillaint job.
A special mention to Joint 1st team Managers Allan & Paul who are both fantastic guys and could not be more welcoming. They showed impressive class.
As Chubby Checker used to sing “Let’s do the Twist again …like we did this Summer ..” and as a result of today’s experience i certainly will be coming to Twist Lane sooner, rather than later, as it is simply superb in everyway.
Best RL day out this season by far.
