Lancashire Clubs - Round Up

Recommended Posts

According to Friends of Real Lancashire - see www.forl.co.uk - the government stated, back in 1974, that the new “counties” were administrative areas only and that the original boundaries of counties such as Lancashire were still in place. However, the media tended to refer to Greater Manchester and Merseyside etc as “counties.” 

Where I worked in Darwen, we used to get customers from far afield and we had a bit of fun with them as to which County they thought they were from. I once said to a guy, ah, Barrow in Furness, Lancashire and he had no idea it is technically still a part of the Red Rose. Generally, those from Liverpool and Widnes etc seemed to embrace Merseyside but those from places like Bolton, Bury and Wigan wanted nothing at all to do with Greater Manchester.

Stanley up to 5th after a very late winner against Doncaster last night.

Cannot argue with w5, d5, l1 and three wins in their last three games.

Always good to see the ginger Allardyce getting stuffed!

Do they ever get beat and he doesn’t have a moan about wrong decisions?
