    Joey Delgado

    'Joey's my favorite wrestler, not just on skills alone but attitude ... would like to see him challenge Rob for the pro belt.'
    'Joey has great work ethic, and no matter how well he gets pinned or submitted, he just keeps coming back for more and wanting to get into it again. Great attitude.'
    (Bob)

    'More Joey Delgado! This guy is amazing, very charismatic. I love to watch this guy kick some ass. The more he wins the better. Hope we see a lot more of him in the future. The best addition to Spotland in years.'

    Vaz faces his biggest challenge yet but will he find out the identity of this mysterious masked wrestler?

    'Thoroughly enjoyed! Intense jobber vs heel match, with a great pro vibe.
    Lots of the stuff I like, Boston’s galore, and a torture rack submission.
    Vaz was great, roughly handled and thrown around the ring, submitting then coming back for more. Masked guy was great, showing no mercy.
    Now, who can it be....!?'

      History

      With no permanent place to call home, The Spotland Scrappers searched far and wide for a venue to train, compete and pursue their passion for wrestling. After founding the group in Spotland Mill, Lancashire,  they discovered The Loft in 2013 - a disused hat factory, stripped back to its bare form. The raw honesty of the place set a light in the founding Scrappers and as the team have developed, so has The Loft. Once just a dusty shell, Team Spotland have re-ignited The Loft with a wrestling ring, grapplezone, oilzone, and mutli-gym, and an atmosphere of  passion skill and energy. Moores Hat Factory closed in 1970  and today, part of it lives on as our wrestling venue.

      The lads enjoy going head-to-head in a range of settings & styles including ring, mats, oil, outdoors, lift and carry, scissors and many more. Click here  for more informaton on how you can create your own custom match.

      A snapreel of action highlights,
      celebrating 10 years of wrestling video productions.

       

      I met some great friends when I went over to England to wrestle for Spotland Scrappers.
      What an awesome group of guys they are. It’s like a family there,
      plus where else do you wrestle in custard or in a ring full of balloons? I still keep in touch with those guys ...'
      (Cameron Matthews - wrestler4hire2.com/blogs)

      'The lighting, the sound, the filming, the action, in fact the whole production values of your videos are superb ...'
      (Rob)

      'I really enjoy your new crop of trainees and fighters! Love your studio and your matches ...'
      (Sheldon)

      'The best, most enthusiastic, fun loving guys!'
      (Glenn)

      'I really do like your product, it's definitely unique from others ...'
      (Jason)

      'Just wanted to say how much I've been enjoying watching Spotland stuff lately.
      Only really watched Tinsel Tag the other day, and loved it, especially the double Boston Crab. The whole thing was a joy to watch.
      Joey is just so enthusiastic in anything he does, and his good humour is infectious. Love him dominating Vaz in Ring Trials 3, the makings of a lightweight heel.
      Be great to see him in a Catchweight match, where the lighter guy destroys his bigger opponent.
      I've downloaded Skullduggery, and loved that too, with great gear and of course, the masked man defeats his clean cut opponent - it was ever thus! Ha ha.'
      (Derek)

      'I'm watching again my large collection of Spotland videos.  You certainly have developed into an expert cameraman; the closeups you do are especially skillful, but always in good taste.  The trainees are photogenic, attractive, and seem to be having a lot of fun perfecting their moves.  Joey, Al and Franky do some entertaining, comical "posing".
      I am a most satisfied consumer of your productions, and appreciate that they are quite affordable.'
      (George)
