TEAM Leigh RMI SEASON(S) 2003
HOME/AWAY Away COUNTRY England
MANUFACTURER Branded

As a footy fan and history buff I revel in teams like Leigh RMI and their unashamed industrial heritage being flaunted in their names. The RMI stands for Railway Mechanical Institute which pretty much explains the club's background although I doubt whether many railway engineers pulled on the shirt in the club's later years. Sadly the club went bust and reformed and renamed as Leigh Genesis which robs us of Leigh RMI popping up in the early rounds of cup competitions and the perennial pub trivia question of what the RMI stands for.
