With regret, the Club has had to accept the resignation of Head Coach, Steve McCormack. Steve has made what he has admitted to be a difficult decision to take a break from coaching. His decision has been based purely on family and domestic pressures and he feels that NOW is the time to devote more quality time with his family.
The Club totally accept Steve’s decision and will be ever grateful for his major contribution to our recent success in winning Championship 1 and avoiding the ‘relegation spots’ in The Championship in 2012.
Steve has made the following comments:
"I have had 2 tremendous years at Swinton Lions and have been part of a special time at the club. The last few months have been a difficult time for my family and I feel as though it is important to take some time out of the game and spend some time with them. I would like to place on record my thanks to everyone concerned with the club especially the fantastic supporters”.
This has obviously come as a shock to the Club but we completely support Steve in his decision and will maintain the relationship that we have built up over the years.
The Club will make an announcement about the replacement as soon as all the options have been evaluated.
