posted by: M44 - Thursday 16th October, 2008
Irlam Hornets Rugby League Club are staging a repeat of last years sell out Full Monty Ladies night in a bid to raise money for the club.
Six of the team's players have been learning their steps and plan to go full monty for the lucky ladies on Saturday 25th October at Higher Irlam Social Club.
The performers have even enlisted some extra help with former Red Hot Flame's cheerleader, Emma McCann, putting the lads through their paces twice a week.
Emma said 'My boyfriend plays for the Hornets and I'm a dancer so they asked me to get involved.
They're really good and I was actually quite suprised as they picked up all the moves quite quickly. They've showed up to every rehearsal and they can't wait to actually get up there and do it.'
The popular Irlam club are trying to secure a permanent home, with a ground on Silver Street their favoured location. They are working closely with Salford City Council to secure land at the site.
Club manager John Conner said 'There's no progress as of yet and in the meantime we're just focused on running the club and keeping our three teams going.
The Full Monty night is always good fun and hopefully we can get the same response this year.'
Ladies Night takes place at the Higher Irlam Social Club, in Cutnook Lane, on Saturday 25th October from 7 p.m
Tickets cost £6 and are available from the social club on 0161 775 2868 or by calling Liam Owens on 07841 036 664
