Re: Away coaches.

I seem to recall that in our early non-league days supporters used to travel on the players' coach - I never went but I don't think I dreamt it!

Re: RIP Alex Russell

I still havn't heard or seen any details regarding the funeral of Alex Russell? Perhaps it's "family only" which is fine if that's the case? If anyone on here knows details of the arrangements then perhaps they could share them? Thanks. According to the Champion, it's at West Lancs Crem, ...

Liam makes a point of thanking the fans in his post match interview, to be fair. Having just watched the interview, I noticed the trees in the background are still completely bare.

Re: SFC Team for Mickey Mouse Cup Final

And by the way it is not a 'Mickey Mouse Cup Final'. It is a game much appreciated by the team and Manager, although I admit that Lancashire FA did let us down badly by playing the game at Leyland and not one of the big football League grounds. Couldn't even produce a proper programme! Yes, the thr...

Drove past Haig Avenue last night and noticed The Pure Stadium words were in the process of being removed from the stand. Anyone heard any news of any new ground sponsors?

Ooh some people have got their knickers in a twist over this. 99.9 per cent of the population have a bank account /debit card. I don't see what the issue is.

If it's too loud you're too old! Seriously though I stand on the Popular side on the half-way line and the level is OK there. I can't recall what was played pre match but there was a Meat Loaf tribute at half time and the usual House Of Pain track at the final whistle after yet another home win :D W...

He was Everton's first black player, quite possibly ours too unless anyone knows different?

That is the name of the referee who took charge at Haig Avenue this afternoon. A rather unusual name to be refereeing in English non-league football.
Anyone else remember Busi Bellow?
It's spelt Bisi Bello...once seen, never forgotten.
