LFA Challenge trophy

We have been drawn away vs. Prestwich Hayes in the first round of the LFA Challenge trophy, W/C 26th September.
Interesting looking tie as Bamber Bridge place host to Charnock Richard.

Champions don't get a bye? Unusual

Still, a new ground for anyone under 50 I should think.

Great draw for me as I occasionally used to watch Heys in my teens & I still live only a couple of miles from their Sandgate Road ground. If anybody is going to the game & is looking for a pre match pint The Welcome Inn, Bury Old Road, Whitefield is good one (Holts ale), as well as being only 10 minutes, or less, walk from Prestwich's ground.

...as well as anybody over 50. Even if you've seen Chorley away at Heys before it will have been at their former ground, Grimshaws, not the current one of Aidy Moran Park, Sandgate Road.

What a blast from the past that name is. They were the Cheshire League whipping boys for many years. I seem to remember us scoring seventeen goals in three games against them in one season. I'm sure they are a lot better now.
