Blackpool Men’s 1sts 5 – 2 City of Manchester Men’s 1sts

Blackpool recorded their first victory of 2018 with a well-deserved 5-2 win over City of Manchester firsts at Stanley Park. Inspired by the return of former captain Nick “Jose” Rainbow looking on from the side-lines after his match was cancelled earlier in the day, Blackpool looked to adopt the tactics that worked well against Didsbury […]

Blackpool Men’s 1sts 2 – 4 Didsbury Men’s 2nds

Blackpool Men’s firsts may have lost out 4-2 to promotion chasing Didsbury seconds, but their performance was much improved on their 2017 form. Welcoming back Sam Robinson and Josh Payne from University, the home side started much the brighter at Stanley Park, taking their opponents somewhat by surprise. Blackpool could have easily been three up […]

Blackburn Northern Mens 2nds 3 – 1 Blackpool Men’s 2nds

Blackpool 2nd team restarted their season with a rearranged game against Blackburn Northern 2nd team, the first one having been called off due to frozen conditions in early December, and this game was played in an extremely cold wind and under floodlights as the winter sun set. Blackburn scored first with a near pass and […]

Keswick Mens 1sts 10 – 1 Blackpool Mens 1sts

Blackpool always knew they’d be in for a tough game away to Keswick, but a poor performance resulted in a one-sided stroll in the park for the home side as Blackpool left with just 1 goal to show for their 4 hour round trip, whilst Keswick reached double figures! Sloppy defensive errors, turn overs in […]

Keswick Mens 2nds 4 -2 Blackpool Mens 2nds

Blackpool’s 2nd team took the 2 hour journey up to Cockermouth to play promotion chasing Keswick 2nd team, expecting an extremely tough match and possible battering, but it actually turned out to be a very even affair and Blackpool’s best performance of the season. Blackpool started with a solid formation in central midfield and captain […]

Blackpool Mens 1sts 1 – 4 Neston Mens 2nds

Blackpool’s tough season continued as they failed to gain any points at home to Neston Men’s seconds, losing 4-1. Summing up their season so far, the already depleted squad was further hit when Rob Dingle and Simon Thomas were both forced off in the opening ten minutes after taking blows to the face and knee […]

Bolton Men’s 2nds 5 – 1 Blackpool Men’s 2nds

The game started very evenly with both sides conceding possession from mistakes and neither team threatening the other’s defence in any meaningful way.  However a couple of bad defensive mistakes at the top of Blackpool’s D led to Bolton scoring the first goal. Despite increased attacks from Blackpool, they didn’t seem to have a clean […]

Wigan Mens 1sts 5 – 4 Blackpool Mens 1sts

Blackpool’s 1st team travelled to fellow strugglers Wigan 1st without their 46 year old star striker Dave Morgan, out with illness, but replaced him with a fellow 46 year old Pete Latimer, albeit he plays in defence, for his first outing in the 1st team for 5 years almost to the day, following injury and […]

Blackpool Men’s 2nds 0 – 4 Didsbury Northern Men’s 5ths

A couple of late arrivals meant that Blackpool were forced to start the match with 10 men.  However after a quick re-organisation in midfield, Blackpool were able to hold out at 0-0 until they were up to full strength.  The first half progressed with Didsbury dominating possession and territory, but unable to break down a […]

Warrington Men’s 1sts 8 – 0 Blackpool Men’s 2nds

Blackpool 2’s continued their tough season with an 8-0 loss away against Warrington 1’s on a wet windswept afternoon. Blackpool had a new goalkeeper Jamie McKinnon who made some good saves but couldn’t stop the endless attacks and pressure that the more mature Warrington side put upon Blackpool. Their first was scored from a short […]

Blackpool Mens 1sts 2 – 12 Prescot Mens 1sts

Blackpool Men’s firsts had a horror show at home to Prescot Men’s firsts, finishing on the wrong side of a 12-2 drubbing. Blackpool only had themselves to blame for a lacklustre performance that showed little very fight once the result was already evident. Dave Morgan grabbed two consolation goals for the home side, but Blackpool […]

Blackpool Men’s 2nds 2 – 10 Liverpool John Moores University 1sts

Blackpool’s 2nd team continued to struggle with a 10-2 defeat at home to Liverpool John Moores University’s 1st team. Blackpool lined up with several new faces making their first appearance of the season in the 2nd team and this perhaps resulted in a lack of cohesion early on as LJMU quickly opened up a 2-0 […]
