It is difficult for a club to keep going when they have no ground.

not entirely sure on ground rules but couldn't Chorley host them (seeing as we took half of there team this time last season) or is this more complicated.

What about the Leigh Miners Welfare ground, that should be up to NWC standard?

Not even close mate. There is only hard-standing around the ground with no terracing, stands or even turnstiles. Would leave us in the same problem of having no income other than gate receipts.

It's a shame. Looks if a buyer cannot be found between now and Midnight they will cease to be.

it is a shame..its awful when small clubs try to keep their books balanced but are unable to acheive it. as for ground sharing surely they could of used wigans robin park.

wether theres 20, 200 or 2000 fans these clubs means so much to their supporters. like richard said lets hope theres a pheonix club

I spoke to a few of their board members when they played Brig at the end of the season. They said then that they had a few difficult decisions to make and the future was far from certain.

The chairman also mentioned that another sides chairman had asked him to consider working with his team if Leigh went under...a side with a few links to Leigh...

I don't see the likelihood of a phoenix either, this club failed through lack of local interest despite the best intentions of the hardy few. If it does come back it won't be of any great shape and I somehow expect more of the fans who would have watched them to switch allegiances to other local sides. Its sad to say that but Leigh just never seemed to garner the standard of support that other phoenix sides had in their dying years.

Sharing at Robin Park would be a non-starter to be honest as it's owned by Wigan MBC and, given their involvement with the Sports Village, we aren't exactly their favourite people! Same problem would exist of relying on gate receipts though which is pretty much the problem in the first place.

fair enough

maybe the fans can latch on to daisy hill, they are a nice club and need all the fans they can muster

i know that dosnt replace the loss of leigh but its a start for fans who love non league football..

i applaud all those concerned with rmi on the difficult times they faced, it must be heart breaking..best wishes for the future

Thanks for that, much appreciated. A few of us will be going to a few non-league games for a good day out and to thank clubs for their support over the years, while no doubt taking in the odd LR, Colls and Daisy Hill game.

One thing I am looking forward to is being able to go travel to more Hibs games without worrying about fixture clashes or who's doing what job in my absence etc. Every cloud and all that!
