Preston & Bolton Parks ON this weekend but South Ribble & Chorley Parks are OFF

Preston City Council and Bolton Metropolitan Council will allow play on their parks this weekend Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th February 2016 subject to the decision of the match referee.
However, their Parks Department and the Leagues request that referees and club officials take a responsible attitude and do not play on any pitch which is clearly unfit.

South Ribble Borough Council and Chorley Borough Council have declared their pitches unfit for play this weekend and as a result there will be no football on the following;

South Ribble Parks:

  • Gregson Lane Recreation Ground
  • Higher Walton Recreation Ground
  • Hutton
  • Kingsfold (Penwortham)
  • Much Hoole Recreation Ground
  • Tardy Gate Recreation Ground
  • Worden Park (Leyland)
  • Chorley Park:

  • King George Playing Fields, Adlington
  • Eamonn McNamara.

    Bolton L&G Club beat Digmoor at the top of Division 3

    Sir Tom Finney (blue) v Kingsfold - Divison 3


    More photos >>

    Another wretched Sunday of mass postponements when a mere 6 games out of the 37 scheduled were played. This is the worst situation we have experienced since the League started in 1968 and there is no immediate sign of improvement.

    The match of the day without any doubt was the division 3 clash between leaders Bolton Lads & Girls Club who played hosts to second placed Digmoor and the Bolton outfit ran out winners with a 4-2 result which gives them an eight point cushion at the top of the table but Digmoor have two games in hand. Peter Lancaster (2), Matt Cain and Elliot Hailwood scored for Bolton with Chris Walton and Ashley Deakin replying for Digmoor.

    Penwortham Town are in fourth spot after their 9-90 win at Northgate through goals from Harry Clarke, Jack Wilson (2), Tom Furniss, Connor Sleight, Tom Sandells, Rob Mullarkey (2) and Cameron Dagleish. Walton’s 4-1 away win at BAE Warton was their first in the league since 20 September and they earned it through goals from Matt Kenyon, Joseph Entwistle, Andy Priest and Thomas Rowland with Dan Walsh netting for BAE.

    Sir Tom Finney have made full use of their 3G pitch at Ashton Community College to keep pace with their fixtures and they were rewarded today with a 5-1 home win against a Kingsfold team who may not be collecting many results but who are earning a reputation as one of the most sporting teams in the league. Anthony Robinson, Jacques Minett, Anthony Fisher, Adam Duxbury and James Clews scored for Finney’s with Andy Schorah scoring from the spot for Kingsfold.

    Ladybridge moved up to third place in youth division red with their 4-1 win over Fulwood Amateurs through goals from Bayley Brigg, Jordan Schofield, Alex Schulz and Jacob Ncube with Murray Marshall replying for Amateurs. Croston won in youth division white for the first time since 27 September beating Ribble Wanderers 4-1 on the 3G at Bishop Rawsthorne School. Daniel Davies, Cameron Perritt (2) and James Hugo scored for Croston with Joseph Ball replying for Wanderers.

    Digmoor march into Presidents Semi-finals

    Digmoor FC

    Digmoor celebrate their maiden season in the league by claiming a place in the Syndicate Trust Presidents Cup semi-finals with a 3-2 win over Chorley Saints and the Skelmersdale based outfit are still pressing for the title in division 3. Digmoor’s scorers were Ryan King, John Stalker Jnr and Danny Morris whilst Shaun Nightingale and Robert McClellan replied for Saints.

    Waverley will join Digmoor in the semis after their 5-4 win at Wyresdale Rangers in the all division 1 clash thanks to goals from Kieran Grogan, Sam Reader (2) and Martyn O’Malley. Mark Kippax, Robert Ford, Adam Franks and Daniel Hooson were on target for Wyresdale.

    It was a red letter day for Sir Tom Finney YFC who collected their first win on the season when they beat Kirkham Blues 6-3, a result which takes the lads into the second round of the Syndicate Trust Youth Trophy. Daniel Sharples, Lewis Weyer, Charlie Stuart and a hat trick from Harry Walmsley earned Finney’s the win, Ross Huxley and Jordan Paton (20 scored for Kirkham.

    A decimated league programme saw just two games played in the Open Age section and it was Theatre Boys who took the points in the 5-2 division 1 game against Worden Rangers. Brendan Thorpe, Nathan Treuberg and Ben Leeming (3) were on target for Theatre, Karl Marrow and Callum Beardsworth scored for Worden. Bolton Lads & Girls Club moved to the top of division 3 after their 9-0 victory over Adlington AFC where their goals were scored by Corey Stringer, Corey Ogden (2), Curtis Harborel, Ewan Cain, Jordan Fishwick and Ansoumane Konde chipped in with a hat trick.

    New Longton Rovers YFC have open up a four point lead at the top of youth division white following their 5-1 win against Croston where Dominic Frediani, Kaine Davis (2), Dominic Wood and Shayden Naik scored for Longton, Daniel Davis got the Croston consolation goal. Two games played in youth division blue, Thornton Cleveleys won 2-1 at AFC Fylde through goals from Tyrone Bowen-Price and George McCauley with Jamie Walsh getting the AFC Fylde goal. Sebastian Roberts netted for Blackpool South but it was not enough as they went down 4-1 at Chipping.

    Cardiac testing begins

    Mitch Newsham (AFC Ashwood) being interviewed by the BBC

    The League’s programme of cardiac testing for its players and referees via Heartbeat started this morning (Saturday 30 January) and such was the interest that BBC North West sent a crew down to film some of the tests in progress.

    The five day-long sessions are fully subscribed and both the League and Heartbeat will look to run more test later in the year. Today’s session saw players from Ribchester Rovers, Ingol Rangers, AFC Ashwood and Fulwood Park Rangers being tested as well as referees David McNamara, Joseph Ellis and Alexander Flanagan-Gill.

    The picture shows Mitch Newsham of AFC Ashwood being interviewed by Ian Haslam of the BBC following his test. The BBC crew then went to film Mitch playing for Fulwood Amateurs against Longridge Town at Lightfoot Lane.
