What was Littleborough’s playing record last season?

Perhaps they fancied another season at the top of a lower league than at the bottom of a higher league?

Who knows?

Littleborough, finished 2nd W 11 D 1 L 2, they were unlucky in being relegated the season before same points as Aldwinians but less wins.

Mcgeechan in the telegraph today is fully in favour of lower league "regionalisation", using the Lancs ADM leagues as an example with a nice pic of Ormskirk playing Widnes.

That will probably sink the idea then.
That's easy for you to say.

McGeechan's career as a Player and a Coach deserves full respect but his recent involvement in the domestic game is nothing to shout about.
After encouraging the 'Yorkshire Carnegie ' name change, followed by poor performance, poor press, severe criticism and his ignominious departure, I would have thought he would keep a lower profile for a while.

Ian McGeechan or not, it doesn't detract that the Lancashire Leagues have been a great idea and innovation, and one which I fully expect to gain momentum and duplicated elsewhere throughout the country. 

It could easily have fallen flat on its face, but it didn't, and for that, those 20 Clubs (now 35) deserve some credit.

In the end - and whether you agree or not - they have achieved more effective change in the last couple of seasons than others have done in years.

And so the revolution continues.....

And when the Covid-19 virus issue finally plays out, I can only see more of the same thing happening elsewhere across the country at a more rapid rate as Clubs are forced to reign in their 'ambition' simply in an attempt to survive.

Rugby will look a whole load different by the time this is all over.
