Blackpool Men’s 1’s 2 – 3 Winnington Park Men’s 1’s

Blackpool Men’s firsts were left kicking themselves after failing to pick up a point at home to Winnington Park. Both sides were under-strength but it was the visitors who made the most of their opportunities racing into a 3-0 lead after 25 minutes, capitalising on Blackpool errors. The home side finally kicked into gear and […]

Leyland and Chorley 1st 6 v 0 Blackpool Mens 2nds

Blackpool’s 2nd team continued their poor run of form with a 6-0 defeat away to Leyland & Chorley’s 1st team, the third successive match against a team relegated from Division 3N last year. The match however was far more even than the scoreline suggests.  There was parity between the teams for the first 15 minutes, until Leyland […]

Didsbury Northern Men’s 4’s 11-0 Blackpool Men’s 2’s

Blackpool’s 2nd team travelled to Manchester with a full squad but were completely outclassed by Didsbury Northern 4th team who beat them with a fluid passing hockey game 11-0. The Blackpool team was virtually unrecognisable to last year’s 2nd team captain Niall Bancroft who was playing for his new club, given the number of 3rd […]

Blackpool Men’s 1’s 5 – 2 Bowdon Men’s 3rds

Blackpool got off the mark in North West Division 1 with a well earnt victory against Bowdon thirds at Stanley Park. Newly appointed captain Ian Swaine had the luxury of a deeper squad than the opening fixture and decided to experiment with a new formation. The opening ten minutes were sloppy by both teams as […]

Didsbury Northern Men’s 2nds 7 – 1 Blackpool Men’s 1sts

A much changed Blackpool Men’s first team found it tough going as they went down 7-1 away to Didsbury Northern Men’s seconds in their opening fixture of the season. The home side dominated from the outset and Blackpool found themselves two behind after fifteen minutes both goals coming off the back of well worked penalty […]

Blackpool Men’s 2nds 2-5 Blackburn Northern 2’s

Blackpool 2nd team started their season with just 4 players who finished the previous season, due to a lot of player movement in the club over the summer.  However due to the 3rd team folding there was a full squad of 15 for the game, and many of last year’s 3rd team players stepped up to playing hockey […]

Liverpool Sefton Men’s 1s 2 – 2 Blackpool Men’s 1s

Two Dave Morgan goals, both from penalty corners earned Blackpool their first point in 2017 with a 2-2 draw away to league leaders Liverpool Sefton. The home side dominated the opening quarter of an hour with their pacey forwards proving a handful for the Blackpool defence. However after a few scares, Blackpool began to play […]

Blackpool Men’s 3rds 1 – 0 Leyland and Chorley Men’s 3s

Blackpool 3’s dominated the match against their Leyland & Chorley counterparts, but the first goal was elusive until the final few minutes of the match, much to the relief of the Blackpool players and travelling supporters (parents). From the off, Blackpool were clearly the better team, and 90% of the play was in Leyland’s half […]

Blackpool Men’s 1sts 2 – 3 Bowdon Men’s 3rds

It was a familiar story at Stanley Park as Blackpool Men’s firsts couldn’t convert their chances, going down 3-2 to Bowdon thirds. In a fairly open and even first half, both sides had opportunities to take the lead, but it was the visitors who converted first to take a lead into the break. After half […]

Blackpool Men’s 3rds 2 – 1 Keswick Men’s 3rds

Blackpool 3’s had a bare 11 players (as did both the 2’s & 1’s in a club availability crisis) but ironically it was actually a strong a side as the team has put out all season. Blackpool opened the scoring when Matt Atherton crossed the ball from the left wing to David Wright who’s first […]

Knutsford Men’s 1sts 4 – 0 Blackpool Men’s 1sts

An understrength Blackpool side couldn’t keep pace with their hosts as they lost 4-0 away to Knutsford 1sts. The Blackpool bare eleven tried to nullify the aerial threat from the Knutsford defence, but some well worked moves and quick ball pace allowed the home side to dominate the opening exchanges. Blackpool looked dangerous on the […]
