Re: Play off final - Leigh v Batley : Tue Sep 27, 2022 11:38 am  
Next Sunday will be a funny old game (Saint). A good few Leigh players including fan faves will, more than likely, be playing their last game in our C&W and, due to quota restrictions in SL, playing to win will be playing themselves out of a gig. The club have one (maybe two should the Lam jnr case be ruled favourably) quota spot left unfilled and that might prove an inspiration.

Back in ‘16 when half the regulars had already been tapped up by Toronto, some (notably Beswick & Kay) became liabilities, others (Worthington et al) continued giving 100% to the cause right to its successful conclusion. Of the three above named, guess which one Bongser still remembers fondly.

Lam snr seems to have built a team and indeed a squad who are more than that. They play for their mates and for this season’s target, this project.

Bongser expects every man to do his duty, deliver a comfortable home victory and furthermore deliver Leigh from the second tier.

Suitably Nelsonian was that Bongser. Very stirring and, if i might add, a nice (Nelson) touch

Any info on how ticket sales are going? Are we opening the South Stand for Batley fans?

Presumably left handed, Jack. A certain Billy Connolly routine springs to mind!

Ignoring IMG for the mo, Bongser is buzzing tonight. He has persuaded his Chorley based, lapsed Leytholic, younger brother to attend his first match since the Hilton Park days. He needs to see this version before it is broken up - and may be re-enthused.

Excellent effort. Hope Young Bongser enjoys the game. With a bit of luck he will be won over and will come back for future games.

I see the Club have announced over 4000 tickets sold for the game which is a good start. Hopefully, we can get at least another couple of thousand in by the time of the game. Crikey, if the fans cannot come for this one then they are never going to come!

Over 5,000 tickets sold, fewer than 50 remaining in the North Stand
Re: Play off final - Leigh v Batley : Thu Sep 29, 2022 9:03 pm  
Looking at leightickets.co.uk:

  • North stand completely sold out.
  • West stand has a fewer than 50 seats left, which are mostly individual and is effectively sold out.
  • Northern half of Lord Peter Smith (East) stand now on sale.
  • South stand is unallocated so there's no indication online about how many tickets Batley have sold. Hope their fans are going to turn out in numbers.

Great to see ticket sales going so well.
I will be hoping to get a decent stream and regardless have internet radio coverage on for the game.
To everyone on here (and everyone going to the game), enjoy the day, enjoy the game, and trust that this team will deliver.
Derek, Chris Chester, Neil Dukes and Adrian
Lam built this team for this game (and for some, beyond). They will not fall !

Up The Leythers.

I thought that for the last game at Hilton Park, where was everyone? I was there as a Leigh supporter.

I have to laugh, the facebook banter page have posters having a moan about glory hunting fans buying tickets for the game. Then on other posts, moan when crowds are low.
