Give Prostate Cancer the Red Card

Here are two health initiatives which are certainly worth considering;

Prostate Cancer Testing
Almost 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in England and more than 9,500 men die from prostate cancer as a result. Every hour one man dies from prostate cancer in England.

The Walnut Group, our local Prostate Cancer Support Group has arranged testing at Preston North End Football Club, Invincibles Lounge, Lowthorpe Road PR1 6SB on Saturday 12 November 2016 from 10.00am to 1.00pm. The test costs £5.00.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
Heartbeat provides training in partnership with the British Heart Foundation in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and what to do in life-threatening emergency - simple skills that save lives.

Every year around 124,000 people in the UK suffer a heart attack and many of these people go into cardiac arrest and die before reaching hospital. Without resuscitation, cardiac arrest is always fatal but performing CPR could double that person’s chance of survival.

To book onto one of their courses, please contact Heartbeat reception on 01772 717147 or email Heartbeat

These sessions are free of charge but Heartbeat welcomes voluntary donations which helps with the upkeep of equipment and helps them run future courses.

More photos >>

Clubs, players, match officials and supporters observed a minutes silence before all games in the league this morning in memory of Dylan Crossey of Penwortham St Teresa’s FC who died on Friday 7th October.

Wyresdale Rangers are up to third place in division 1 after winning 6-4 at Warton with goals from Kristopher Case, Robert Ford (2), Andrew Murphy (2) and Sam Assalone with Aaron Poole, Lewis Rae and Ric Tomlinson (2) replying for Warton and Wyresdale are unbeaten in the league this season. AFC Longridge who beat the leaders Ashton on Ribble 3-0 have collected 9 points from 4 games to date, Worden Rangers share top spot after their 5-1 against Gregson Lane Wanderers and Theatre Boys won 7-2 at Vernon Sports.

Acregate Lane took advantage of Hunters having no game to draw level with them on points in the premier division with a game in hand and today they beat Ingol Rangers 4-1. AFC Ingol beat Ashton Villa 6-5 in a cracking game at the Arena, Springfields won 4-2 at New Longton Rovers, Tanterton beat Grange 4-2 and New Farington won 3-2 at Walton Athletic.

Division 2 leaders Tulketh United suffered their first reverse of the season going down 4-2 at Leyland Orient, Whittle Wanderers in second place lost 4-0 at home to Bolton Lads & Girls Club who are now third with a 100% record, Fulwood Park Rangers beat Tarleton Corinthians 8-1, Penwortham Town won 6-2 at Gregson Lane and Ribbleton Wanderers collected their first points of the season with a 4-3 win at Westhoughton. BAE Warton and Bamber Bridge Town drew 2-2 in division 3 where Arkwrights beat Parkside and Walton beat Adlington 9-0.

Several of our youth teams were playing in the LFA U18s Youth Cup and we are aware that Lostock St Gerards beat Culcheth Athletic 2-1, Poulton beat Tarleton Corinthians 2-0, Clitheroe won 3-2 at Southport, Thornton Cleveleys beat Walshaw Sports 1-0 and Ladybridge won 6-1 at West Didsbury & Chorlton. Sadly the following clubs exited the competition; Lostock Hall SC, Garstang, Horwich St Marys, Mellor and Southport.

Haslingden St Marys won 4-0 at Chorley Wanderers in the only game in youth division red, Eccleston & Heskin beat Euxton Villa 3-2 in youth division white where Croston won 2-1 at Ribbleton and Walmer Bridge beat Appley Bridge 4-1. Chipping and Wyre Villa drew 2-2 in youth division blue and Springfields beat Lancon 5-0. This is Lancon’s first season in the league and this morning was the first time that they had avoided a double figure defeat. Their manager Ian Westby was full of praise for his team saying, “They are a great bunch of lads, they realise that they are in an extremely competitive league but they are keeping their chins up and they are enjoying their football”.

Dylan Crossey RIP

Dylan Crossey

The local football community is mourning the loss of 15-year-old Dylan Crossey who died in tragic circumstances on Friday night 7th October 2016.

Dylan was an enthusiastic, committed and talented member of Penwortham St Teresa’s U16 team. His desire to do well and his will to win have been evident since he was seven years old and he was a valued player, team mate and friend to everyone at the club.

He was very much looking forward to joining the newly formed Penwortham St Teresa’s U18s team in the Lancashire Sunday League next season as he looked to continue his football career with the club.

Dylan's family have released the following statement: "Dylan was a much loved son and brother who loved nothing more than living life to its fullest. He was a gentleman and was growing into a fine young man. Dylan was an outstanding footballer and loved to watch his favourite team Preston North End both at home and away. Dylan was taken from us suddenly and without warning. He will be sadly missed by all his family and friends."

Club chairman David Tynan said, “It is in times like these that football brings the best out in people and the club has been overwhelmed by the support that all the clubs have shown along with all our affiliated leagues. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this tragic event, I’m sure the league and member clubs will join us in offering our wholehearted support to the family and friends of Dylan at this difficult time”.

Penwortham St Teresa’s charity partner, Sutty's Shooting Stars, use the mantra "Giving young people the chance to shine" and this is also adopted by the football club. Dylan represented a fine example of a person who firmly took his chance to shine, in football and in life, and he will be sadly missed by us all.

The Lancashire Sunday Football League sends its deepest condolences to Dylan’s family and friends and to everyone at Penwortham St Teresa’s JFC. We invite all our clubs and referees to observe a minute’s silence in Dylan’s memory before their games on Sunday 16 October 2016.

Details of the arrangements will be made on here once they are announced.

Eamonn McNamara.
