Lostock Hall JFC need our help

Site of Woodcock Farm, Lostock Hall

Lostock Hall JFC is petitioning Lancashire Council to allow them to take on Woodcock Hall Farm so that they can develop the site for their club. The farm is situated on the corner of Farington Rd and Stanifield Lane, Lostock Hall adjacent to the roundabout.

This is not an 'aggressive' petition, nor is it meant in any other way except as a tool that will allow people to know about the club’s alternative plans/ideas for the building and land and to voice the club’s ideas at a higher level, where it would be discussed, rather than nobody being aware of their option.

We can all help this excellent club whose youth team play in our Youth Division White, by registering and signing the on-line petition here Lostock Hall JFC Petition

Lostock Hall Junior Football Club will celebrate its 40th Anniversary in 2018 and they desperately need a new home base to bring the club together, one that is big enough for all 32 teams supplying award winning grassroots football & FA Coaching to 450+ children & young people (aged 4 to 18 years). The club is a member of:

Lancashire Football Association
Mid Lancs. Colts Junior Football League
Central Lancs. Junior Football League
Lancashire Sunday Football League (entered as Lostock Hall SC)
West Lancashire Girls Football League

If you require more information about this FA Charter Standard Community Club, please contact the club secretary Vicky Alty on 07496 001652 or e-mail Vicky Alty

Just four games survive the weather

St Theresas (red) v Vernon Sports - Division 1

More photos >>

One game certain to be played was the division 1 clash St Theresas v Vernon Sports on the 3G facility at Preston College which ended 1-1 with Arrondale Richards firing Theresas ahead in the first minute and David Hankin netting the equaliser in the last minute from a penalty awarded by referee Mark Moore. Warton beat Gregson Lane Wanderers 7-4 thanks to goals from Saul Thorpe, John Waite, Danny Thompson (3), Daniel Lenehan and Matthew Wiggins whilst Wanderers scorers were Joey Damsell, Ben Williams and two from Jack Mountain bringing his tally to 13 for the season.

Half of the games played this morning were in Warton where BAE Warton and Kingsfold settled for a 4-4 draw in their division 3 game. Joe Clamp and Phil Critchley each bagged two for BAE whilst Rhys Lisle, Jordan Leadbetter (2) and Jordan Bate netted for Kingsfold.

The only youth section game to survive the weather was played at Lostock Bolton where Ladybridge beat Haslingden St Marys 4-2 in their youth division red clash, Matt Sandham, Michael Price and Connor Elliot scored for Ladybridge, Joe Lloyd and Henry Hindle got the Haslingden goals.

The two youth cup games postponed this morning will be rescheduled for next Sunday and that will inevitably result in other changes. Fixtures manager Mark Moore will be in touch with clubs affected and the changes will be posted on the website.

    New Farington House crash out of LFA Sunday Trophy

    More photos >>

    The League’s interest in this season’s LFA Sunday Trophy came to an abrupt end in the morning mist at Centurion Way, Farington when New Farington House were on the wrong end of a 9-0 trashing by The Hares from Skelmersdale.

    Speaking after the game, New Farington's Ryan Broomhead was philosophical about the result saying, “I have absolutely no complaints, they are a good, well organised team who play for each other and took the chances presented to them. We didn’t do ourselves justice today and we can play better than that. We had chances early on and didn’t take them, they had five chances in the first half and buried the lot. The Hares are a good bunch of lads and I wish them all the best”.

    New Farington playing down the slope in the first half did indeed have chances early on and they almost took the lead on 11 minutes when Micky Hindle’s shot crashed against the bar but sadly this proved to be a false dawn. A minute later Ryan Wallace pounced to give The Hares the lead with a clever lob and his low shot made it 2-0 four minutes later. Before New Farington had time to regroup it was 3-0 with Ryan Johnson scoring after 20 minutes. Wallace completed his hat trick on 41 minutes and Ashley Rimmer scored on the stroke of half time to send the visitors in 5-0 at the interval.

    The Hares made it 6-0 on 52 minutes via in OG following good work by Rimmer, Mark King made it 7-0 on 68 minutes another OG on 74 minutes made it 8-0 and Ashley Rimmer rounded off an excellent performance by scoring his second on 80 minutes to give The Hares a comprehensive 9-0 victory and one that New Farington will want to forget.

    Hunters beat New Longton Rovers 3-2 with their fifth win on the trot and they lead the premier division by two points from Ingol Rangers who beat Acregate Lane LC 7-2, AFC Ingol beat Springfields 4-2 and Tanterton won5-2 away at Grange. Theatre Boys beat Worden Rangers 4-1 to keep hold of top spot in division 1, Wyresdale Rangers good season continued with a 6-5 with at Preston Victoria and Warton won 3-2 at St Theresas.

    Leyland Orient had a comfortable 5-0 at Fulwood Park Rangers in division 2, Gregson Lane beat Ribbleton 5-0 and Westhoughton put four defeats behind them to beat Tarleton Corinthians 4-1. The battle of the big boys in division 3 went the way of leaders Arkwrights who beat second placed Earnshaw Bridge 4-2 at Corpus Christi, Andrew Danson, Jonathan Wallace and Mark Taylor (2) scored for Arkwrights, Christian Penzer and Mark Carlton replied for Earnshaw Bridge.

    A Jack Sanders goal gave Ladybridge a 1-0 win against Clitheroe at the top of Youth Division Red and Ladybridge now lead the table by one point from Clitheroe, Astley & Tyldesley and Chorley Wanderers played out a 3-3 draw. Southport lead Youth Division White after their 4-2 win at Eccleston & Heskin, Burscough beat Leyland BTR 9-1 and Euxton Villa beat Croston 5-2. AFC Fylde had an impressive 8-1 away win at Broughton Amateurs in Youth Division Blue and Chipping beat Penwortham St Teresa’s 2-0.

    Parks are ON this Weekend

    Preston City Council, South Ribble Borough Council & Chorley Council have all allowed play on their pitches this weekend Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th January 2017, subject to the decision of the match referee.

    However, the Councils and the Leagues request that referees and club officials take a responsible attitude and do not play on any pitch which is clearly unfit.
