Presidents Cup Final Postponed
It will be no surprise that the Syndicate Trust Presidents Cup Final, scheduled to be played at Bamber Bridge FC tonight (Wednesday 22 March), has been postponed.
The officials from Bamber Bridge FC have made every effort to get the game on but unfortunately they are no match for the British weather which has rendered the pitch unfit.
The Presidents Cup Final will now be played at Bamber Bridge FC on Wednesday 12 April 2017 at 7.30pm.

Walton get the better of Arkwrights
Arkwrights FC (red) and Walton FC observe a minutes silence in memory of Dave Smith
Dave Smith (ex Ingol Rangers FC & Falkland Heroes FC)
Another soggy Sunday which saw the bulk of our scheduled fixtures postponed and with it the inevitable inconvenience to everyone connected with the League.
Perhaps it is at times like these that we should remember that there is a bigger picture out there and take a moment to think of the family of one of our former players Dave Smith who sadly passed away last Sunday 12 March at the age of 53.
Dave was well known to many people connected with the League, a larger than life character who was a much liked and highly respected member of the Ingol community. He played for many years in this League for Falkland Heroes FC and Ingol Rangers FC and he had close ties with Tanterton FC.
His funeral service will be held at 12 noon on Friday 24 March 2017 at Blessed Sacrament RC Church, Farringdon Lane, Ribbleton, Preston PR2 6LX followed by interment at Preston Cemetery.
His family cordially invite friends and colleagues to join them at Ingol Social Club, Whitby Avenue, Preston PR2 3YP after the service to reminisce and share memories of Dave.
The only game played today in the Open Age section of the League was the division 3 clash Arkwrights v Walton which was preceded by a respectful minute’s silence in Dave’s memory by the teams, referee Chris Seed and both sets of supporters.
This was a real top of the table clash played on the 3G pitch at Corpus Christi College which Walton won 2-1 to close the gap to two points against their closest rivals. Arkwrights in their first season in the League have lead the division for most of the season and Walton have been nothing if not persistent in keeping track of them. Andrew Danson scored for Arkwrights to bring his tally for the season to 14, James McIver scored his tenth goal for Walton and John Porter got the other.
The youth section had better luck with games, Youth Division Red leaders Ladybridge beat Walshaw Sports 6-0, AFC Fylde who head Youth Division Blue beat Springfields 5-1 and a special mention to the officials and players of Lostock Hall SC and Appley Bridge who hired Ashton Sports College 3G pitch as both their grounds were unfit and they agreed to play each other in back-to-back fixtures which Lostock Hall won 2-1 and then 4-0.
