Springfield Borough, an offshoot of Blackpool Borough.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Thanks Rogues ,
Were they at the time trying to make themselves into a Wigan area side or was it just temporary move ? I watched Leeds there but could not remember who the team were (i am guessing it was Challenge cup)

I think it was a temporary move, I’m sure they then moved on and morphed into Trafford Borough

Correct.


Springfield Borough moved there for a minimum 10 years but it didn't work out. This was on the BBC back in the day.

Kerry Gibson played for Runcorn Highfield and he had one arm. I think he was an Australian.
