PNE Boss Peter Ridsdale makes the Cup Draws

PNE Boss Peter Ridsdale with Nathan Mahon of Lostock Hall SC FC

Once again PNE Boss Peter Ridsdale kindly agreed to make the preliminary round draws of this season’s Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup and Syndicate Trust Youth Cup. Peter, who is always willing to assist the League, sent his best wishes to all our clubs and players for the forthcoming season.

Helping him make the draw was Nathan Mahon of Lostock Hall SC; Peter Ridsdale drew out the home teams and Nathan the away sides.

Centre midfielder Nathan (aged 16) has been involved with Lostock Hall SC for the past six seasons and this will be his second season in our youth section under the guidance of team manager Mark O’Mahoney.

Nathan is employed as a Life Guard at Virgin Media and he is a turnstile operator at Deepdale. His transport to Deepdale for the draw was courtesy of his Granddad Frank Mulvaney who played for the legendary Wanderers FC in the early days of the League and he was the Secretary of the Year with Bennetts FC in 1988.

Our big thank you to Heartbeat

Heartbeat's Debbie Crossley & Craig Ashcroft

Clubs and players from the Lancashire Sunday Football League have made a donation of £3,783.00 to Heartbeat, the League’s adopted charity and Craig Ashcroft of Hunters FC (formerly Unicorn FC) made the presentation to cardiac physiologist Debbie Crossley, at the Heartbeat HQ.

The money was raised by individual donations from member clubs, from the proceeds of the League’s Christmas meeting and a large amount was raised by a Boxing Event organised by Craig Ashcroft which proved extremely popular with bouts featuring players from different clubs in the League.

League officials are concerned that every week at least 12 ‘apparently’ fit and healthy young people die in the UK from undiagnosed heart conditions. People (14-36 year olds) involved in sport, stress their hearts the most and if they have an underlying cardiac abnormality they are more likely to be at risk, in most cases there are no obvious symptoms.

The League’s partnership with Heartbeat has enabled over 200 players and referees from the League to have the benefit of a cardiac test over the course of the past season at the Charity’s HQ at PNE and it is hoped that this will be an on-going programme.

League Chairman Eamonn McNamara said, “We are delighted to be supporting Heartbeat which is such an important charity and one which our members can benefit from”.

Stilwell & Kelly take charge at Tanterton

Tanterton Football Club has today named their new manager and his assistant to replace the departing Gareth Hughes.

The club is pleased to announce that Benn Stilwell will take the reins and lead Tanterton in their first season in the Lancashire Sunday Football League Premier Division and he will be assisted by the former Plungington Celtic Manager, Joe Kelly.

The new management duo bring a wealth of Sunday football experience to the club, with Stilwell having been a player at Tanterton since its formation in 2010 and Joe Kelly brings a vast amount of management know how with him. Kelly is considered to be one of the most successful Sunday League managers of all time, having steered the likes of Arkwright’s FC and Plungington Celtic FC to title and cup winning seasons.

Club secretary Carl Longshaw said, "I could not be happier, we have moved swiftly in the last 48 hours to make these appointments and I am sure that they will build on the achievements of last season".

It is straight down to business for the new management duo will be in charge for the first pre-season friendly this Sunday 24 July 2016 (kick off 11.00am) when Tanterton travel to Warton FC (formerly Warton Typhoons FC).
