Yes, It’s MFE week again, so we’ve been trawling the archives for something for you to enjoy. With Simon Haworth taking over the reins at Clitheroe FC at the back end of this week what better than this 2014 interview with our own Johnny Bogroll? If you like what you see then you can get […]
With all the, erm, banter, no scrub that, hatred going back and forth following Wigan Warriors rearranging their forthcoming fixture against Salford, we thought we’d do our bit for the “one town, two teams” campaign by dragging this article from the Mudhutter archives. Thanks to Johnny Bogroll for finding it for us.
