Later known as Leigh Genesis, the semi-professional senior side of Leigh RMI folded in 2011 – since making a comeback in 2012. That said, their return was not so glorious; in the South Lancashire Counties Football League in fact. That’s not part of the English league pyramid either – unless that’s changed since we wrote this. The RMI in the name stands for Railway Mechanics Institute, if you were interested; a nod to their history.
Our last meeting with them was an FA Trophy tie in 2007.
