Jock Wilson RIP

Jock Wilson

Jock Wilson, one of the founders of Ingol Rangers Football Club, passed away on Monday 15 June at the age of 83.

Jock, along with 5 friends formed Ingol Rangers FC in 1973 and the name Rangers was adopted due to Jocks love of his hometown club Glasgow Rangers FC. He insisted that team would always play in blue, a tradition which the club has maintained to the present day.

The club were originally based at Jock’s local pub, the John O ’Gaunt in Ingol and Jock was extremely proud to manage the club in their maiden season in the Lancashire Evening Post Sunday League where they finished champions of division 5, winning 24 and drawing 1 of the 26 games. The club won the LFA Sunday Trophy in 2003, they have been League champions 4 times and won the Challenge Cup on 5 occasions.

For many years Jock continued his involvement with the club in various capacities and he always showed a keen interest in their results in his later years. He was immensely proud of his contribution and his legacy and the club’s thoughts are with his family at this sad time. RIP Jock.

Eamonn McNamara.

“Throughout this period, we have taken government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time".

Coronavirus (COVID-19) - League Update

Following on from the suspension of football this weekend, there has been a briefing and a number of statements from the English FA and County FA in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In essence, the English FA / LFA have ‘sat on the fence’ in regards of clear direction as to how this situation should be managed and have left it with an unqualified volunteer workforce to make decisions affecting social, medical and financial impacts on both clubs and families.

The health, safety and well being of all associated with our member clubs is of paramount importance. Until further information is available from the governing bodies, the league will be suspending all league organised football until the 3rd of April.

Unfortunately, the delay in completion of games may signal the end of the competitive divisional season, despite a possible extension and the best endeavours of the league. Only when we get clear and unambiguous guidance as to this developing situation will we fully understand what can be achieved.

In terms of the Syndicate Trust Cup competitions, we will again make a decision as to our ability to manage their conclusion within a reasonable time frame. We may also need to consider the venues as the postponement of fixtures will also impact on availability.

The Lancashire Sunday Football League will continue to monitor the progress of this crisis and will notify all member clubs accordingly once we have any updates.

Please ensure that you are advising anyone connected to your club and ask them to follow the guidance from Public Health England (PHE).

Issued by the League Management Committee
16 March 2020.

All Fixtures Postponed Until 3rd April

Following the guidelines issued by Lancashire County FA earlier today, the Lancashire Sunday Football League has taken the decision to postpone all fixtures until 3rd April.

This decision has not been taken lightly, but having considered the concerns of our member clubs and the current information available, this is the most responsible course of action to ensure the well being of all associated with the League.

The League will continue to review the guidance from the government and Lancashire County FA and we will keep everyone informed of any further developments.
