At the beginning of the month, the 6th September to be precise we held our inaugural “Over 70’s” tournament but allowing Youth team goalkeepers (Over 60)

In saying that one of our visiting keepers was 72 and he finished on the winning side after a dramatic penalty shoot out.

ALL the matches were played in the correct spirit and were expertly officiated by our WFA qualified referees  Billy Burton & Martin Murphy.

In the five team League format, Wigan Yellows finished ahead of Clitheroe on goal difference, Wigan Whites finished third with Widnes in fourth and Blackpool below them.

A thrilling Final between hosts Wigan Yellows and Clitheroe finished all square at 2-2 then along came the dreaded one step only penalty shoot out.

The visitors triumphed 3-2 and went back to East Lancashire with the impressive trophy.
