REDGATE ROVERS LATEST
Girls Team - Redgate Rovers 10 & Northfield 2
showing great team spirit and determination, Redgate pushed hard to
take control from the whistle. Bethan Dodd in goal for the first
half and solid defensive displays from Stephanie Bocking and Anna
Middlemiss, ensured that the visitor’s attacks went unrewarded. The
ever-improving Hannah Davies helped control the midfield and drive
the game forward for Redgate. An almost a weekly occurrence first
half hat trick from veteran Rachael Carragher and a well-taken goal
from the skilful Olivia Marland 2, ensured that Redgate took a four
goal lead at half time.
Second half substitutions, including Alex Price and Jade Brooks 1,
whose excellent control and passing ability quickly had the home
team under pressure. Georgia Jones, engine room of the team and
dominant in midfield, scored four outstanding second half goals,
which were driven with precision into the oppositions net. An
impressive midfield display from Sophie McDonough and intelligent
defensive work from Bethan Dodd helped Redgate take a well-deserved
victory. All praise to the often-frustrated visitors, who never gave
up and scored 2 well taken second half goals.
Boys Team - Birkdale 0 & Redgate Rovers Yellow 6
competent performance by Redgate against a Birkdale side who appear
to be improving with each match, ably assisted by their goalkeeper
who performed magnificently again.
Rovers pressed straight from the off and soon opened the scoring
when a great cross by Michael Panes ricocheted off the head of a
Birkdale player into the net. This was soon followed with Dan Abdous’
first goal of his hat trick in the match. Redgate continued to
control the game with Ryan Walker working tirelessly down the left,
and soon Matthew Croughan made it three.
The Yellows found it a little more difficult in the second half as
Birkdale pressed for their first goal, however they were held at bay
by Freddie Russell, Sam Bennett and Craig Lowe, Man of the Match,
who marshalled the defence excellently. Redgate continued to press
with Dan Abdous taking the game to Birkdale scoring his other 2
goals and unselfishly laying the ball off to Ciaran McCarthy who
slotted the ball into the corner of the net for his first goal of
Boys Team - Under 11 - Redgate Rovers 2 & Formby JSC 9
caught cold at the start of each half by derby-rivals FJSC and never
recovered but despite an opening salvo which saw them two-goals down
inside five minutes, Redgate showed plenty of commitment throughout
the remainder of a first-half which failed to hint at how one-sided
the match would become.
On the stroke of half-time right-back Daniel Prentice, one of the
smallest players on the field, rose highest to meet Oliver Millar's
corner and plant a wonderful header past the stranded Formby keeper
but any hope of a comeback was halted when Formby struck again
within seconds of the restart.
Redgate didn't show anything like the attitude or organisation they
showed in their previous week's cup success and Formby scored at
The home team kept trying, however, and gained some reward when Ben
Jackson sprinted to the by-line and pulled back a perfect cross to
cut-out the keeper and give Greg Banks the chance to score a
Boys Team - Under 15 - CHURCHTOWN 0 & Redgate Rovers 4
maintained their unbeaten run in the league with a fine win at
Churchtown. Redgate took the game to their opponents in the first
half and totally dominated with ten shots on target from front men
Brown and Ricketts backed up by Danny Ward who came closest with a
clever chip that struck the bar. Halfway through the first half the
deadlock was broken when Michael Brown cleverly beat a defender and
drilled a shot low into the corner of the net. The football in the
first half was deserving of more goals but it remained 1-0 at the
Churchtown started the second half strongly and penned Redgate into
their own half for 10 minutes but the defence superbly marshalled by
Adam Delaney held firm. Redgate continued to play good football and
a delightful move involving Matty Holroyd, Chris Lackner and Sam
Wignall deserved a goal. However they were not to be denied and a
fine cross from Michael Brown was met by Danny Ward who finished
neatly. Redgate were catching Churchtown on the break and Lewis
Ricketts took full advantage with a shot from the edge of the box
that crept under the keeper. Danny Ward wrapped the game up with a
second goal after good work down the left by skipper Lackner.
Patrick Jackson and Olly Tenwick played well in midfield but man of
the match was Adam Delaney who had an outstanding game.
Early diagnosis can help save lives
November is National Lung Cancer Awareness Month
yourself checked out early for lung cancer" is the message
from lung cancer nurses during November's lung cancer awareness
campaign. If you have a cough that won't go away or you're coughing
up blood; or if you are much more tired than normal or feeling very
out of breath get checked out straight away, it could be the early
signs of lung cancer, and early diagnosis saves lives.
Local lung cancer nurses will be raising awareness of lung cancer
and its symptoms as part of a campaign from The Roy Castle Lung
Cancer Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Relief in November. Lung
cancer nurses support people and their families when they are first
diagnosed with lung cancer, helping them to make decisions about
their treatment, giving them practical and emotional support.
2 of Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust's lung specialist
nurses will be holding awareness raising sessions in November, where
people can come along and get more information about lung cancer.
They will be at Boots the Chemist, Chapel Street, Southport on
Thursday 10 November between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm. They will then be
at The Concourse Shopping Centre, Skelmersdale on Thursday 17
November between 10.00 am 3.00 pm. Information display boards will
also be at both Southport & Formby and Ormskirk District General
Hospitals during the month.
Lung cancer claims the lives of 92 people a day but more could be
saved if only it was detected earlier. For 80% of people with lung
cancer their disease is inoperable because it has been diagnosed so
late. If people were diagnosed at a much earlier stage, it would be
possible for many more of them to have an operation that could
potentially cure their cancer.
"Lung cancer is now the UK's biggest cancer killer in both men and
We want to hit
home the message that early diagnosis saves lives and we hope that
by encouraging those most at risk of lung cancer to recognise the
symptoms early and visit their GP, we can reduce the number of
deaths from the disease. If lung cancer is diagnosed early, chances
of survival are increased by 40 times, which is why early diagnosis
is so important." said Janet Thompson.
While smoking is a major risk factor for lung cancer, 15% of people
who develop lung cancer have never smoked. This campaign is about
raising awareness of lung cancer and helping to reduce the stigma
surrounding the disease.
The main symptoms of lung cancer are:-
* chest infections that won't go away, even with antibiotics
* a cough for more
than 3 weeks
* coughing up blood
* feeling more tired
* feeling very out of
* losing your voice
but no sore throat
* chest pains
* losing weight, but
not sure why
If any of these symptoms are experienced for more than 3 weeks,
people are urged to visit their GP, particularly if they smoke or
used to smoke.
