Unlucky against the league leaders

Blackpool Men’s 2s 0-2 Bury Men’s 1s by Peter Latimer Blackpool hosted the league leaders Bury in what was always going to be a tough game.

My First and (hopefully) last rant!

Blackpool Men’s 1s 1-3 Runcorn Men’s 1s by David Morgan I would like to think that as a Captain I am a relatively positive person, preferring to build belief and expectation than berate and rant at people.

Valiant Blackpool 2nds

Blackpool Men’s 2s 0-4 Carlisle Men’s 2s by David Morgan Blackpool made the long journey to Carlisle, knowing that it was potentially more than just a topographical ‘up hill slog’ being able to only field 10 players against a side who put 10 goals past their last opponents without reply. Season debuts from Sam Roberts, […]

Disappointing Home Draw

Blackpool Men’s 1s 1-1 Lancaster University Men’s 1st by Peter Latimer With several absentees due to injury, exams and family events, the home team lacked their usual strength in numbers and had to rely on the same 11 players all match.

Blackpool Rampant!

Blackpool climb to 2nd place league spot with win at Preston

Blackpool Men’s 2s 4-1 Preston Men’s 5s by David Wright Blackpool 2nds completed their first ever league game with a win away to local rivals Preston.

Blackpool start league campaign with a poor start

Blackpool Men’s 1s 1-3 West Cumbria Men’s 1s by David Wright Blackpool started off with the worst possible start as they went behind to a goal in the first ten minutes from a penalty corner. Shortly after the home side pulled on back as some good passing play from Steven Whitley & Dave Morgan led […]
