    Unlikely Aaron Hickey (Bologna RB / LB)

    I've seen him play for Blackpool this season...decent Championship player but not any improvement on what we already have.

    Final Score Bees 1 (Toney p) Everton 0 Att 16,957

    Got up at 5.30 yesterday morning,got back at 10.00 p.m. but who cares.We are holding our own in "The World's Best League"(apparently). Some of the comments on here are ludicrous...But The Usual Suspects cannot stop themselves,always ready to get in with sarky comments and disparage players...

One Lancs boy scored an outstanding century.This is a fairly rare occurence as an innings is 40 overs.Michael Vaughan was there in his capacity as a proud father...his son plays for Cheshire.At the end of the match M.V. made a point of...

    General Cricket Thread

    There have been at least a dozen Yorkshire players born outside the County before Sachin...the whole thing is a bit of a myth.The most famous of these was Lord Hawke(born in Lincolnshire) who brought in the policy in the first place.It fits in with a certain Yorkshire "otherness" that some...

    Best pub in the area is The Taps,on Henry Street in Lytham...proper old-fashioned boozer,great choice of beers,posers not allowed.Bus from Blackpool to Lytham Square(11 or 68 or other),cross road from bus stop,over the mosaic,Henry St is on your right.

    Which signing announcement were you most excited about?

    George Thomson signed for Everton from Hearts on the same day they signed the legendary Alex Young,also from Hearts.The two were great friends but Young's outlook was much more professional.
