Nervy start ,followed by some great tries and all finished up as we wanted.Batley put in a tremendous shift and deserve all the plaudits they have been given.

Well done to Leigh Centurions, hope you can stay in SL, well supported and well run. Got a feeling you'll do it this time, SL needs you.

Congrats to the Leythers on a dominant year, looking forward to Salford playing Leigh, Leigh visiting the AJ Bell and also Salford going to LSV. Be really interesting to see who comes in in the close season for Leigh too.

I am guessing Derek will keep his lucky Leopard print shirt into next season.

To any Leythers who want to support our cause we're lobbying Salford Council to ensure Salford Red Devils remain at the AJ Bell rather than go to Moor Lane, our petition is here should anyone wish to sign it. Hopefully Seb Gerrard will purchase the stadium in the coming months.

I think I go further back than you when I remember the first coming of the messiah Alex Murphy as Player-coach. In the Wembley season 70/71 a total over 110,000 attended 17 league matches giving an average home crowds of 6,500. But what was more memorable were the attendances at cup matches during his tenure.This included 2 amazing clashes in the Challenge Cup against Wigan of 22,660 in 1968 and 18,505 in 1970. Plus 16,494 in a Lancs. Cup semi final against Widnes in 1969.Perhaps the most astonishing crowd figure was a 2nd round replay against Huyton in Feb. 70 which had a crowd of 8,135 -Amazing!!

Well yesterdays game gave us a good base to work on. Assuming we stick to the Friday night games , will this help or hinder our chances of getting around the 7k Mark? Some games will be dictated by Sky or C4 of course but Friday assume is better for corporate, but not so much so with families with young children

Next season is next season. We have yet to see the squad assembled (some carrots dangled last evening). Think the announcements will be dribbled out slowly to keep interest up but in time for the shirt launches (certainly pre-Christmas).

One thing that could be addressed is street advertising, Walking to LSV yesterday from Tom Burkes, noticed several (small) placards plastic jubilee clipped to street furniture that advertised the RL World Cup. Also saw several gonfalons still advertising the Women's soccer Euros that finished yonks ago. No promo on the Grand Final/ MPG. 7,233 was a good crowd, 8K+ would obviously have been better.
