Too Friendly Theatre Company
After the success of
"Wuthering Heights at the Southport Arts Center
recently, Maghulls 'too Friendly Theater Company' have
now begun rehearsals on their next production, the
poignant and entertaining "Breezeblock
Park". The play will be performed at
the Rose Theatre, within Edge Hill College, Ormskirk from
the 6th to the 8th of June 2002.
- The play, set in 1970's
Liverpool, tells the story of a family having to come to
terms with the pregnancy of an unmarried daughter and the
importance of material possessions and
one-upmanship. Whilst exceptionally funny, the play
explores the hopes and dreams of the characters and
results in a dramatic climax. The play is written by
Willy Russell who also wrote "Blood
Brothers" and "Shirley
Valentine" to name but two.
- Amongst the talent and
enthusiastic cast of actors, the character of Betty is
being played by Stella Barrington and Betty's long
suffering husband Syd is played by John Windsor. The
play is once again directed by Merseyside's own Cliff
- The Theatre company have a
growing reputation for producing high quality, moving
performances, due to the dedication and imagination of
those involved. Having already received rave reviews
for their productions of Willy Russell's "Stages
and Hens" and Emily Bronte's "Wuthering
Heights", this production promises to be one
where the comic and dramatic talents of the company are
shown off perfectly.

their last home fixture of the season with a 1-0 win against
the Sandgrounders. Doncasters fourth
Belle-Vue victory in a row could in fact have yielded more
goals but for at times resilient defending from their
Southport came close to earning themselves a point when Simon
Parke came close to equalizing in the last minute.
With only the goalkeeper to beat Parke miss-hit his shot and
Andy Warrington was left with an easy save.
Rovers teenage sensation Paul Green had a shot deflected for a
corner after only 30 seconds for the home side but despite
Doncaster forcing ten first-half corners, Southport stood
strong and prevented them from gaining an advantage.
Parke's first chance of the game came in the fourth minute
after escaping the offside trap but his shot cleared the bar
to the dismay of the traveling support.
Doncaster winger Andy Watson fired just wide from the edge of
the box in the eighth minute . Barry Miller headed the ball
into the back of the net from a Tim Ryan cross just minutes
later. Fortunately for Southport the offside-trap worked well
and the linesman raised his flag to rule the effort out.
Barry Jones worked hard and tirelessly for the Sandgrounders,

But the home side continued to dominate with Watson having a
flick shot saved before Ryan had a long range thunderbolt
tipped over the bar.
Doncaster, with much of the early play under their belt, were
denied by Steve Dickinson in the Southport goal when he saved
Watson's second effort. Soon after, ex-Sandgrounders Tim Ryan
missed his opportunity to open the scoring when he too failed
to beat the favorite for the Southport player of the year
Dickinson continued to deny Watson, who was out to impress the
visiting scouts. In the 38th minute an angled drive
by the winger was stopped dead in its tracks by the Haig
The second half was more even, with both sides struggling to
find an opening. Rovers had another effort disallowed in the
62nd minute when Robert Gill fired home after Barnes had
handled in the build up.
Southport began to look more dangerous with the big man Simon
Parke heading wide in the 63rd minute but it was Doncaster who
made the all important breakthrough a minute later.
A rare mistake by Dean Howell saw Paul Green latch onto the
ball to set up Barnes who finished from close range.
Steve Jones came close with 20 minutes remaining, firing into
the side-netting when close in on goal but luck just wasn't
going Southport's way.
Southport battled to the finish but were out of luck when
Steve Whitehall had a shot on the turn well saved in the
