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, ...

Re: New Signing

Welcome to the club Keenan... Whilst I understand the flexibility required by Liam (in having a small squad) that players can play in different positions,I tire a bit when it seems constant...If you're not careful-you end up with a mish mash where the player doesn't know his best position and ends u...

I don’t think that their Board would be happy if he is released without playing a game after they only recently paid a fee for him.
Not all money paid "up front" for him I was led to believe so....

Re: Update with Liam and Ian

it's difficult to see what's going to be different this season to last-and that's not a criticism of Ian Kyle or Liam Watson.No new major investment in the club (anybody out there-get in touch with the board as Ian Kyle says) I'm sure all offers would be welcomed and looked at. Yes,the group of play...

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

It must be quite unsettling for Doug Tharme...A new Manager installed before he's even kicked a ball for them.."Alleged talk" of bringing players in by Appleton...The Appleton appointment (for the second time at Blackpool FC) must be a bit of a gamble..He seems to have a good reputation wi...

Re: RIP Alex Russell

As a 10 year old in 1965,I'm not sure I appreciated him as much as I possibly should in the handfull of games I saw him play.He scored in that debut game of mine- the trio of Russell,Alty and Spence against Luton Town that day. Many also forget the important role that he played later on his career i...

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

A fully fit Liam Edwards was a " no brainer" signing for SFC.
Liam Watson obviously (to me) has decided against pursueing his services permantly-which surely tells supporters everything? I too remember his horror show performance at Chester FC.
Good luck to him in the future.

Re: Chorley Manager gone

Andy Preece has been named the new manager Chorley FC now seemingly like to promote from within,and it will be very interesting to see if Andy Preece can step up and adapt from assistant to the Managerial role-where the buck stops.I think it's fair to say that he was a bit like a "rabbit trapp...

Re: Playoffs

Bit of a strange one that...Vermiglio as far as I know is still the head of a primary school, so to be looking for a "new challenge" within football at this kind of level is odd-unless he thinks he can get a job at a full time set up? I would have thought that Chorley FC was ideal for him-...

Re: Possible transfer targets for next season etc...

Recruitement of players this close season is I reckon going to be harder than ever for SFC and obviously Liam. By and large we are surely going to be looking for players yet to prove themselves and also having that desire to succeed in the game- ala Doug Tharme. Experience wise we should maybe looki...

Re: Playoffs

It just shows that the so called " priority" spots of 2nd and 3rd positions in the playoffs means diddly squat with both Brackley and Kirkham squandering home advantage after just not being "up" for games against teams with an extra game BUT momentum.York City literally crawled i...

Re: Possible transfer targets for next season etc...

I love the optimism on here which is great, as regards attracting a bit of experience into our ranks which i think most of us think would be good-for a largely young group of players. However the likely hood of picking up a Huntingdon or a Spearing is pretty unlikely I would imagine.We are now at Na...
