What's the ground like?

Hilton Park was a multi-purpose stadium in Leigh, Greater Manchester. It was the home of Leigh Centurions rugby league club and Leigh Genesis F.C. association football club. It had a capacity of approximately 10,000. The stadium was demolished in February 2009. In June 2008 Leigh RMI were renamed Leigh Genesis to signify a "new beginning" for the club ahead of its move to the Leigh Sports Village. Leigh Genesis Football Club folded after relegation from the Northern Premier League in 2011.
