A celebration of 50 years of local football in Preston

Inter-league game v Blackpool Sunday League 1970

Don’t forget the event to celebrate 50 years of local football in the City from 1965-2015 at the Ale Emporium, 53a Fylde Road, Preston on Friday 9 October 2015, starting at 6.00pm.

The England v Estonia game is on TV at 8.00pm and a hotpot will be served at half time. The event is open to everyone who loves and who has played the beautiful game and ex-players and referees from the Preston & District League, Preston Catholic League, Preston Churches League and the Lancashire Sunday League will be present to reminisce on old times and “how much better the game was then”.

Wilf asks that if you have any memorabilia (medals, photos, news cuttings) from your football days you bring them along to show the assembled masses. A token £5.00 will be charged for the evening to cover the hotpot and Wilf is looking for people to sponsor the event with an individual donation and he has received a number to date.

To order a ticket or for further information, please contact Wilf on Preston 336257 or e-mail Wilf Riley

Goodbye to the Desso

Work starts on replacing the Desso

UCLan Sports Arena is pleased to announce that construction work has finally started on the removal of their Desso Grass Master pitch which will be replaced by a state of the art 3G that will enable them to provide for multiple sports.

The Desso was opened in 2000 and for 12 years it was the Arena’s flagship facility. Unfortunately age and usage caught up with the pitch and for the last couple of years it was a real struggle to keep the pitch at its previous high standard.

AFC Ingol, Ingol Rangers & Ashton Villa are just some of the clubs from the Lancashire Sunday Football League who have called the Desso home and the Arena is looking forward to welcoming teams from the Lancashire Sunday to the new facility when it is ready for use early in the New Year.

The facilities at the UCLan Sports Arena are amongst the very best in the County. We appreciate the co-operation which we receive from the Arena staff at all times and we looks forward to our clubs continuing to use their excellent facilities in the future.

New boys Digmoor FC who are based in Skelmersdale have hit the ground running by winning all four games in division 4 to date. Today they faced Penwortham Town who are also new to the division and both had a 100% record prior to kick off; however Digmoor took the points with a 2-1 win with goals from David Barton and Alex Stoddern.

Bolton Lads & Girls Club are up to fourth place after their 3-2 home win against Chorley Saints which maintains their 100% record, Tulketh United travelled to Adlington AFC for a 4-0 win which featured a Tom Kay Hat Trick, Ribchester Rovers beat BAE Warton 4-2, Kingsfold won 8-2 at Northgate and Craig Colman brought his goal tally for Rovers to 10 with a hat trick in their 5-1 win at Walton.

Waverley have indicated their intent in division 1 by beating Walton Athletic 3-0 at Higher Walton to make it three wins out of three and head the table, Hesketh Bank in second spot beat Brigg 8-1 and a cracking game at the UCLan Arena saw Tanterton beat Springfields 2-0 with a brace from Matt Billington. Warton Typhoons won 4-2 at Gregson Lane Wanderers, Wyresdale beat Theatre Boys 4-2 and a Callum Beardsworth hat trick helped Worden Rangers to draw their game with St Theresas 3-3.

Acregate Lane LC still lead the premier division after beating Unicorn 2-0 and AFC Ingol are in second place after their 6-0 win at AFC Longridge, New Longton Rovers had an excellent 4-1 win at BAC Continental Casuals, Ingol Rangers proved too much for a spirited AFC Ashwood who they beat 4-2 and Grange and Ashton Villa played out a 1-1 draw at Ribbleton Park.

Match of the day in division 2 saw the league leaders Leyland Orient beaten 2-1 by Frenchwood who are now two points behind them with two games in hand. Gregson Lane beat Preston Guild 2-0 and Preston Victoria who are bound to have a say in the division won 7-1 away at Westhoughton which included a Neil Byrne hat trick. Southport Vulcan are another team to watch and they started their league programme today with a 2-0 at home to Tarleton Corinthians. Vernon Sports are in fourth spot after their 3-2 win at Fulwood Park Rangers.

We had seventeen youth teams playing in the LFA U18s Youth Cup 2nd round today but unfortunately at the time of writing several had failed to post their results on the website. There were wins for Astley Bridge Storm against Huncoat United, Broughton Amateurs against Warton Typhoons and Hurst Green who won 9-2 at Coppull United Blues. Charnock Richard won 2-1 at Ladybridge and Poulton beat Todmorden Borough 8-0. New Longton Rovers went down 1-0 to Elton Vale and Garstang were beaten 1-0 at Turton.
