State of Mind have been invited to deliver a free session to players at Leigh Miners Rangers Amateur Rugby League Club in January

Alan Coleman has been in contact to arrange the session and the team will be proud to visit this famous club located over the bridge from the Leigh Sports Village.

Leigh Miners can trace their roots back to 1966, when players from Astley & Tyldesley linked up with the disbanded junior section from Hope Rangers to form the new club based at the Miners Welfare club on Twist Lane. Back then the team played in the Warrington League, and Twist Lane was a far cry from the present set-up with no changing rooms or other facilities on site. Players from that fledgling side included current Club President and physio Rod Raines and committee man Harry Westhead.

This year the first team’s victory in the Conference Challenge Cup, the Alliance team’s promotion to North West Men’s League Division One and the women’s team WRL Plate success making it a campaign to remember champions
