A whole new ball game for Liverpool
Nick Moon, the man behind all in the Lions club. Nick’s association with rugby league began when his St Helens supporting step father took him to watch Saints Wigan Boxing Day and Good Friday derbies, in rebellious fashion Nick decided to become a Wigan supporter. Because of his connection, they came through marriage to a Scouser.
He explained that she said to him that it wouldn’t be great if there was a rugby league club in their place, he answered yes, and it just happened to coincide with the RFL’s push to get rugby league in Liverpool. He was approached by the RFL to get involved and it went from there 6 years ago.
6 years later, the Lions run teams at open age, they have founded a wheelchair team, and have a ladies team in training ready to join a league in 2015. In 2011 the Lions became the 1st rugby league club in Liverpool to be awarded Clubmark accreditation.The club’s labours have already started to bear fruit.
