Been meaning to post this for a few weeks, I suppose now in the current climate is a good time.

Noticed the old souvenir & lotto shop at Hilton Street is currently being converted back to three terraced houses.
Does anyone know of the property has been sold by the club or if they still own it ready for the rental market?

Gotta be worth a couple of hundred grand in all?

Add this to the sale of Orrell and maybe this is IL getting his money back out the club as well as cutting spending on the team and backroom staff particularly the marketing department?
IL needs to hold a press conference asap on the Edwards debacle and the general well being of the club before he looses all respect from the fan base. He may still talk a load of shoite but at least it would give fans and the press to ask some direct questions to some worrying issues.

I believe the lotto is moving to Robin Park arena when it is finished, supposed to be next month.
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

I did notice this several weeks ago but don't know the circumstances surrounding it.

It has served a purpose for many years but I guess moving forward it does make more sense to have one big "hub" for Wigan rather than several small places dotted around town.

Yeah it does make sense, I just wondered if the club still owned the properties, as a way of some additional income away from the rugby activities?

Sold or rented this would be some welcome additional income for sure.

I seem to recall a story years ago that said the old club shop was owned by a fan of the club but gifted on a ridiculously long lease free of charge to the club.

May have dreamt that though.
