Clubs set off on the LFA Sunday Trophy trail
Our clubs will set off on the LFA Sunday Trophy trail on Sunday 4th September 2016 with last year’s finalists Ingol Rangers travelling to meet The Saddle FC. The draw has been unusually kind to us as none of our clubs have been drawn to play each other and just 10 clubs having to travel.

Acregate Lane LC score for Heartbeat
Acregate Lane secretary Alex Ross (left) presents the cheque to League Treasurer Dave Carlisle
Acregate Lane Labour Club (premier division) played the Acregate Lane Old Boys at UCLan Sports Arena in July to raise money for the league’s Heartbeat Appeal and have a good time in the process. The less said about the score the better but rumour has it that they stopped counting at 17-4 for the Sunday league lads.
This was a great team effort by everyone at Acregate Lane club which has been our spiritual home for nearly 40 years. The wives & girlfriends (WAGS) were out in force to give their support at the game and to offer their congratulations or commiserations afterwards when it was party time back at the club.
The idea was to have a good time and raise money for Heartbeat and they scored on both counts with £500.00 being raised (thanks to a generous top up by the club committee) and Team Secretary Alex Ross presented the cheque to League Treasurer Dave Carlisle at our August meeting.
