Remembrance Sunday - 14th November 2021

The League Management Committee invite clubs, players, match officials and supporters to remember all those who have died in conflicts over the years by observing a minute’s silence prior to kick off this Sunday 14th November 2021.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We shall remember them.

The Changing Room - New Support Group

The Changing Room is a new support group, founded by like-minded amateur sportsman from the districts of Preston and South Ribble in Central Lancashire, with the goal of getting men together to talk.

Following the loss of one of their own, they felt a need to create a movement that would be open to anyone who wants to make a change for the better, be it in their personal or working lives, but do not know who, how, where or when they can speak about the matters that most concern them at this point in their life.

Whilst aimed at those individuals within the vast amateur and semi-professional sporting network in the region, who have experienced life within the “Changing Room”, anyone is welcome to come and express what they need to in a non-judgemental environment either within a small group or individual basis with one of our “old boys” who are looking to help those who need it, when they need it.

They recognise that they won’t have all the answers, but they will be there to listen, validate your concerns and hopefully guide you towards a better you in a better place, both physically and emotionally.

Whilst a number of their group do have mental health training, they are not mental health professionals, but, where necessary they can signpost you to those services that may be better suited to your needs.

They initially plan to run a monthly meeting on the last Thursday of each month at a venue that will be confirmed on our Telegram Group Info Channel and Twitter, STARTING ON THURSDAY 28TH OCTOBER, keep an eye on their social media for more information. #ITSOKTOTALK
