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 […]

Lancaster & Morecombe Men’s 3rds 6 – 1 Blackpool Men’s 3rds

A freak hailstorm in Lancaster treated Blackpool 3’s visit to the league leaders, making the pitch slippy underfoot and the team under-prepared after sheltering during the warming up time. Well that’s one excuse anyway for why Blackpool conceded two early goals.  In reality it was some good running, passing and precision shots by the Lancaster […]

Wigan Men’s 1sts 4 – 3 Blackpool Men’s 1sts

Blackpool only have themselves to blame after conceding three goals in the closing fifteen minutes to lose 4-3 away at Wigan. In a scrappy affair both sides struggled to find a decisive final pass in the first half, but a series of penalty corner exchanges saw the match  edge in the visitors favour. Simon Thomas […]

Blackpool Men’s 2nds 3 – 2 University of Liverpool Men’s 2nds

Blackpool started out strong, showing the experience and passion in both attack and defence dominating the visitors. Blackpool were challenging up front as the pressure placed upon the visitors opened them up to attack after attack but unfortunately nothing came from the early opportunities. The first goal of the game came from a Blackpool counterattack where […]

Blackpool Men’s 1sts 3 – 1 Urmston Men’s 1sts

In North West Division 1, Blackpool Men’s firsts continued the unpredictable theme of season with a well-earned three points against top of the table Urmston, winning 3-1 at Stanley Park. Despite welcoming back a host of players into the side that beat Southport the previous Sunday, Blackpool still only mustered up twelve available players against […]

Warrington Men’s 1s 3-2 Blackpool Men’s 2s

Blackpool’s second team returned empty handed from an away trip to Warrington, kicking themselves at having lost a game 3-2 they really should have won. On a balmy day with temperatures more akin to a pre-season friendly than one of the final game before the Christmas break, Warrington took an early lead with a clinical […]

Blackpool Mens 3’s 2 -6 Kirkby Lonsdale Mens 2nds

Blackpool 3’s took a hard beating by Kirkby Lonsdale, losing 6-2 in their final game before the Christmas break. Blackpool had only the minimum 11 players, including two up and coming juniors, of which George Walker was making his debut to join his elder brother Chris.  Whereas Kirkby had a more experienced line-up, full of […]

Southport Men’s 1sts 0 – 2 Blackpool Men’s 1sts

A severely understrength Blackpool Men’s firsts recorded a remarkable 2-0 win away to Southport in their rearranged league game that was abandoned due to the weather a fortnight ago. With eight regular first team players unavailable, and the entire second team also engaged (shops must have been busy this weekend!), David Wright returned to the […]
