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.'
