Another one bites the dust
Denton FC of the Cheshire League fold,
the season continues with another team unable to continue, where is it all going to end.. with no grass roots open age
PEX HILL FC FOLD Nov 16
It seems all the teams in the open age field of amateur football are struggling with teams and player numbers, Yet
another club has folded due to lack of players Pex Hill this time.
This is the fourth or fifth
team this season that has fell by the wayside. It can't continue or grass roots football is going to die.
Live premiership games are blamed by lots of people in amateur football, but its up to the players what they choose
to do. Play or watch TV, I know what I would be doing..
Players of Halebank FC Oct 16
gives me no pleasure to report we have a shortage of players in the football club, since our terrific last term we have lost
a few key players and have struggled to get the numbers for 3 games so far.
These three games
saw the club penalised with fines from the Cheshire and Warrington leagues.
So to all our players
please make every effort to be available for selection, I know some of you do this anyway. If you are not available please
tell your team Manager earlier than Saturday Morning, this gives the manager a chance to plan things.
you have any friends who don't play for us and would be interested in doing so, please bring them along as they will be
made very welcome.
See our poster for recruiting players (above).
MONEY OWED TO THE CLUB Oct 16
We at Halebank FC will endeavour to recoup all debts owed to the club by players who leave owing money. We have
done so many times in the past.
It is appreciated by Halebank FC if the new club a player goes
to, are helpful in making arrangements to ensure the owed money is repaid (as we do !)
unfortunately is not always the case and some clubs incorrectly inform players they do not need to repay monies
owed at all.
We then have no other option that to put it in the hands
of Liverpool CFA, who will act on our behalf to ensure all eligible fines are recovered by the club, with an extra
charge for their time and effort.
We will take any further steps we can ( even the small claims
court if required ) to recover owed money from players that refuse to repay us.
the charges incurred by all players and they in turn MUST repay us. .
Here we see four very proud men, Tony Nolan, Phil Sheridan, Jamie Unwin & Bob Whitley. As we were
presented with the prestigious Halton Sports Awards "Team of the Year" prize and Tony also deservedly took the "Coach
of the year" award.
A superb night for all involved at the club and its great to
be recognised for the success we have enjoyed over the last few seasons. A massive night for all our players, sponsors
and supporters too, without your help and support we could not do this. Thanks to the organisers of the Halton Sports
event and Widnes forum for nominating us.
Congratulations to Tony Nolan for being awarded the Hallmark Cheshire League Manager
of the month for May. It is a well deserved award as with the massive backlog of fixtures 7 league games in a month we won 6
Superb finish to a somewhat frustrating season due to the weather. Terrific effort from
all involved Tony, Jamie Unwin, Billy Knowles and all of the squad involved in the final run in of fixtures that climaxed
with that 14-1 win in the last game..
with Warrington Premier League Trophy from 2014-15, Guardian Cup winners 2015-16 and Widnes Cup winners 2016.
What a fantastic haul of silverware.
