 - Formby JSC White v Birkdale United - REPORT -

Another victory that keeps Formby JSC Whites at the top of the league. Again not the greatest performance from Formby Whites, with a lot of ball watching and lack of movement both off the ball and after passing the ball, but they are still getting the victories which augers well for the season.  The scoreline could have doubled if not for an outstanding performance from the Birkdale keeper and some indecisive finishing from the whole Formby team. Man of the match today was new player Will Riley, who had a really solid game, playing for the 1st time. Formby goal scorers today were Jamie Murphy, George Forsyth, Jack Lemmens, Joe Blanchard, Tom Elder & Dan Griffin.  the match ended:- Formby JSC White 6-1 Birkdale United.

Southport poem could be the £1,000 winner

A poem about Southport or another town in your circulation area could win £1,000 in a free poetry competition.  Entry is completely free and anyone, young or old, can have a go; beginners too! All you have to do is send a poem about Southport or another town in your circulation area to "Local Poem" by email or post to United Press Ltd, Admail 3735, London, EC1B 1JB.  The best poem will win £1,000 cash and you can send up to three entries, which must be no more than 25 lines (each blank line counts as 1 line) and 160 words each.  "It can even be about something or someone from the poet's home area. We find that poems written from personal observation and experience are the most heartfelt and expressive, so we're expecting some great entries from your readers. The contest is designed to encourage ordinary people to write poetry; to both express themselves and be more creative. Last year's winner was Mary Scott from Darwen in Lancashire and previous winners came from Leicester, Surrey, South Yorkshire, Bristol, Oxford, Stafford, Rotherham and Greater Manchester. Maybe this year the £1,000 will go to a poet from Southport or a neighbouring town. Winning poems have been about a river, a tower, a local character, village life and local history." explained a United Press spokesman.  The closing date is 31 December 2014.
