Bungling robber is jailed By our Court Reporter A BUNGLING armed robber who tried to raid a betting shop in Walton but was twice recognised has been jailed for five years. A judge ruled on Thursday, February 8 that the public need protecting from the raider, Lee Doran, and imposed an extended three year licence period. Liverpool Crown Court heard how 42- Betfred, on Hale Road year-old Doran went into the BetFred bookies in Hale Road, Walton on the evening of November 23 last year wearing dark clothing and a balaclava. He grabbed hold of one of the two female staff members and pushed her towards the counter demanding money but the other assistant recognised his voice and when she told him she knew who he was he took his balaclava off, said Rob Jones, prosecuting. He was holding a 12 inch knife but claimed he was “only messing” and left the shop empty-handed. Outside he was seen by a customer who also recognised him and knew his name. Continued inside

Work starts to expose historic waterway

Report by Tom Martin WORK IS UNDERWAY to reveal one of the hidden jewels of the historic Leeds & Liverpool Canal for the first time in 170 years. The Stanley Flight, built in 1848 by the celebrated Victorian engineer Jesse Hartley in north Liverpool, was a pivotal moment in the Industrial Revolution as it connected the canal to the city’s thriving dock system – transforming the speed at which cotton and coal flowed to and from the Lancashire mill towns to the British Empire. The series of four locks, each of which dropped the canal by 11 feet to Hartley’s new Stanley Dock, further cemented the port of Liverpool’s pre-eminent role in global trade in the 19th century, however, a two metre-high, 10 metre-long wall on Great Howard Street has always obscured it from view.

Man fined over racist abuse to rail station staff By our Court Reporter TWO men from Walton have been prosecuted for giving racist abuse to a Merseyrail staff member at Southport railway station. The victim said he felt like one of them had such a “deep hatred” that it led to him taking time off work - but was helped by remembering the decency shown by other station users at the time of the incident. Sefton Magistrates Court heard how Brian Bradshaw, 37, of Lindsay Road, and Steven Woods, 45, of Blackbrook Close, were stopped at the ticket barriers at Southport’s railway station on September 17, after visiting the Air Show. Angela Conlan, prosecuting, said a Merseyrail employee believed the men to be unfit to travel through drink after Bradshaw was seen to stumble. An argument broke out and another employee attempted to intervene. Mrs Conlan said Bradshaw became very abusive to the second employee calling him a “black monkey” and shouting “This is England, this is my country.” The whole incident lasted about 15 minutes, she said, and when being told that police had been called, Mr Woods said: “Come on lets leave this n*****, and get a

taxi.” The court heard that members of the public told the men that they were “out of order” and one man tried to have a fight with them over it. Mrs Conlan told of how the rail guard was deeply affected by the incident. “He was so fixated on the colour of my skin and kept repeating comments,” he told police, “It was not like it was a joke. It was like a person of deep hatred.” Telling of how he took time off work, she said that what helped him to return to his job was remembering the decency shown by strangers at the time of the incident. “It made me realise that not everyone is like them and that gave me some confidence:” he said. The court heard that Bradshaw, a taxi driver, had a conviction for possession of a controlled drug in 2002 and that Woods had no previous convictions. Bradshaw was sentenced to eight weeks custody, suspended for 12 months, fined £180 and rehabilitative activity. Woods was also sentenced to eight weeks custody, suspended for 12 months, but was ordered to undertake 100 hours of unpaid work, and pay £200 in costs. Both men were ordered to pay £50 in compensation to the rail guard.

Work is underway at Waterloo ABC launched by Shaun Farmer, inset.

Work underway on boxing club project Report by Tom Martin PLANS to breathe fresh life into a former boxing club in Waterloo has taken a step forward, with hopes it could reopen over the next two months. The Champion reported how Shaun Farmer, who used to box at Waterloo ABC, wants to reopen the Brighton Road club and turn it into a “community gym.” Having raised nearly £2,500, Shaun has been able to access the empty building and start the work to return it to its former glory. New images show the insides of the former club, which is located in an old

electricity substation. Shaun went from being an amateur boxer at Waterloo ABC to competing in 18 professional fights, but he now wants to “produce champions from Waterloo, Crosby and Thornton.” He has been helped in his mission by friends who also used to box at Waterloo ABC. Shaun said: “The work has started, as in it’s been cleared of all the stuff which was left and we are now waiting to get it all marked out so the contractor can make it into a gym. “I’ve got to go to Stockbridge ABC to strip their gym ring down ready to be put in ours. I'd say it’s looking more like April-May time before we are ready to have ABA in to affiliate us.”

MERSEYRAIL bosses have called on unions to take part in talks with the Metro Mayor Steve Rotherham to settle the dispute over the future of guards on trains. The RMT union is against proposals to have drivers operating the doors when its gets its new fleet of trains - a role currently done by the guard. Merseyrail deny union claims that its proposals are about increasing profits for shareholders and say no guards will be made redundant as a result of its plans. Merseyrail managing director Andy Heath said: “I appeal to the RMT to get round the table to work out a solution. “The proposed changes to the method of operation in the new trains is not about increasing profits for shareholders, zero hour contracts or compulsory redundancies. “There will be no increase in profit for the shareholders associated with these new trains. “Guards will have their current terms and conditions protected should they accept an alternative job. Not one single guard will be made compulsory redundant as a result of these changes. “Every guard will be offered a guaranteed job elsewhere in the business.” The RMT union say the issue is about safety and claim they are unwilling to engage in talks if the starting point for them is the removal of all guards. RMT general secretary Mick Cash has said: “The Metro Mayor and other politicians who have been echoing the nonsense from Merseyrail need to decide whether they support the most profitable private train operator in the country or the passengers and rail staff who want to put safety first.”

Hidden secrets of canal are revealed for the first time From page 1

Everton manager Sam Allardyce joins in the celebrations to mark EITC’s 30th birthday

But thanks to a £20million highways improvement scheme, passers-by will be able to enjoy this marvel of Victorian innovation which now stands within Liverpool's World Heritage Site. Heritage experts have begun a scheme to reduce the wall in height which Liverpool City Council hope will become a tourism feature in the new and emerging Ten Streets creativity district - a site covering 125 acres of former docklands which has a 15 year masterplan to create 2,500 new jobs. The work to remodel the wall has been designed by Liverpool based landscape architects BCA Landscape, who are also creating new artwork for the new Great Howard Street bridge, and is expected to be completed in March. Councillor Ann O’Byrne, Deputy Mayor of Liverpool, said: “The Stanley Flight is of huge historical importance as it defines the moment at which Britain’s most important canal connects to its most important river and marks the birth of Liverpool’s role as a truly global trading centre. Heritage “The legacy of Jesse Hartley, who completed both the Albert and Stanley Docks in the space of just two astonishing years, can still be felt today. “His work is a major element of our World Heritage status so it’s thrilling to see one of his lesser-known feats be given a new lease of life. I’m sure he’d be delighted to know that his industrial ingenuity will help shape our plans to capitalise on the digital revolution.” Bill Froggatt, Heritage Adviser at the Canal & River Trust, the charity that cares for the Leeds - Liverpool Canal, said: “The Canal & River Trust works hard to engage communities with their local waterways, and the simple act of opening up the view on to the Stanley Flight is an effective way to ensure the heritage of the Industrial Revolution remains an important part of Liverpool’s story. “Our staff and volunteers have been working hard to clear and tidy the area, and over the next few weeks they will be planting shrubs, herbs and bulbs, so that come spring this will be a really attractive space that everyone can enjoy whether walking to work or just out for a stroll in the fresh air.”

Big Sam visits charity to mark its 30th anniversary

Everton in the Community ‘second to none’ says club boss

EVERTON manager Sam Allardyce helped oversee a special coaching session at the club’s official charity to help mark its 30th anniversary. Following the visit, Big Sam hailed the impact Everton in the Community has had in north Liverpool, describing it as ‘second to none’ and revealing he ‘hasn’t seen anything better in football.’ During the evening, the Blues boss teamed up with The James Greenop Foundation to put on a coaching activity. Russ Greenop, along with family and friends, set up TJGF after his son, ten-year-old Evertonian James, was killed in a road traffic accident in 2013. Since then they have continued to help young

people in a spirit befitting the memory of James. In February 2014, in partnership with Everton in the Community, the ‘James Greenop Legacy Kicks’ session was established, initially for James’s friends and teammates in the Prescot area. The programme has grown from six children

Prison contract worker arrested A CONTRACTOR employed at HMP Liverpool prison has been arrested as part of an investigation into corruption. Titan regional organised crime unit said on Wednesday, February 7, that a 31-year-old woman from Norris Green was arrested on suspicion of misconduct in a public office. The arrest forms part of Operation Earthly, a joint investigation between Titan’s Prison investigation unit and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS). A vehicle and a house in the Norris Green area were

searched following the arrest. The woman was described by police as being a contract worker at the prison. DCI Chris Mossop, Head of Titan's Regional Intelligence Unit, said: “This arrest is part of an ongoing investigation conducted by the Titan Prison Investigation Unit, set up with the support of HMPPS, to identify those members of prison staff in the North West either directly or indirectly employed by the prison service who are believed to be corrupt. “PIU staff will take positive action against any person

believed to be involved in corrupt activity that affects the prison estates across the region. “This is yet another positive example of the work undertaken by the Prison Service and Titan in reducing the harm contraband is having within prisons. “We would like to make it clear to the small but determined number of prison staff who are involved in corruption that we will look at every opportunity available to us and the Prison Service to disrupt and arrest those involved.”

when it began to some 60 children aged between six and 18 who attend the sessions every week. Allardyce said: “Sessions for young people such as this one - ‘James Greenop Legacy Kicks’ - are all down to the hard work of the Foundation and Everton in the Community. The combination of the two organisations working so closely together has had fantastic results and a thriving session like this is testament to them and to James’s living memory. “The quality of service that Everton in the Community provides within the city is second to none. I haven’t seen anything better in football. “For me to give up a bit of my time to come and support this is nothing and Russ is inspirational, he’s very determined. On the back of what was a tragic loss for him and his family, they are recovering and they are recovering by channelling their energies into helping other youngsters. With the support of our charity, they’re helping to deliver other services for those in need. Long may that continue. Rightly, we’re very proud of what we do here at Everton with all the work in our community.” During his time at the session, Allardyce spoke with James’ dad Russ and his sister Millie about the work the Foundation is doing in continuing young James’s legacy, as well as hearing about their future plans to grow and develop the Foundation in coming years. The Everton boss picked up a ball himself and supported some of the younger children during their coaching drills, passing on tips and advice to the enthusiastic youngsters in attendance. Russ added: “When we set this project up, I was asking for help myself. I needed support. “Everton in the Community have been fantastic and I went to them asking if they could help me and my family get some solace and put on some training sessions. We started with six on the first night and now we have 60 here. “I’m so proud of everything we have achieved and we could not have done it without Everton in the Community.”

A TAXI driver who had £250,000 cash stashed away at two separate addresses in Waterloo and Maghull was jailed for 20 months after admitting money laundering. Sentencing Terence Scott, who is a youth football coach for the West Cheshire League, Judge Alan Conrad QC said: “Professional criminals accumulate large quantities of cash and need assistance in laundering it “Without such help they would find life much more difficult. “People like you give assistance to criminals and this is one of the factors that makes offences of this sort so serious.” Liverpool Crown Court heard that police raided Scott’s flat in Blundellsands Road East, Waterloo, on August 11 last year and when asked if there was anything that should not be there he said “just my savings.” “Under a mattress on the bed officers found a bag containing £33,475 cash, of which just over £3,000 was in Scottish notes,” said Paul Mitchell, prosecuting. Police also found Euros10,185 and also two torn bank notes, which are used as a token among criminals.

Terence Scott

51-year-old Scott was in a relationship with Catherine Evans though at the time they were separated - and they had children together and the police then went to her home in Liverpool Road South, Maghull. They found carrier bags in a bedroom wardrobe containing a total of £198,985 cash. A further £1,160 cash was found in a bedside cabinet and £740 in a handbag. Mr Mitchell said that while the officers were there another woman tried to leave carrying a handbag. She was stopped and inside the bag a total of £9,760 was found. 53-year-old blonde haired Evans admitted that he had given her the handbag to take out of

Electronic cash counting machines and bank note checkers were found as well as holdalls similar to those containing the cash. The total found at the two properties was £244,120 sterling plus the euros, said Mr Mitchell. Scott, whose address was given as the same as Evans’, pleaded guilty to money laundering and Evans admitted assisting an offender. A charge of money laundering against her, which she denied, was left to lie on the file. Alessandro Di-Francesco, defending, said Scott is a father of five had spent his working life as a taxi driver but had also been a football coach for ten years. Defence barrister Oliver Cook said that Evans said that she admitted trying to impede the prosecution of her partner but the police were not impeded and the money was quickly recovered. Evans was sentenced to six months imprisonment suspended for two years. The judge also ordered her to carry out 200 hours unpaid work and he imposed a three month curfew between 9pm - 6am.

Pensioner, 94, injured in raid at Anfield home A 94-year-old woman from Anfield was injured after five masked men shoved her over and ransacked her home. The burglary happened on Leison Street at around 8.30pm on Friday, February 9 when the men forced their way into the pensioner’s house. The elderly victim opened her front door after she heard loud knocking and shouting. Two of the men then pushed past the 94-yearold, causing her to fall over, before the other three searched the home and then fled the scene. Officers have described one of the offenders as a white male in his 20s, and the other four are described as white males. The 94-year-old suffered bruising to her wrist and was left shaken by the ordeal. An investigation is underway and house to house, CCTV and forensic enquiries are ongoing in the local area. Detective Inspector Jacky Fitzpatrick said: “This was a shocking and cowardly incident against a lone vulnerable elderly victim. “Thankfully, the woman was not seriously injured, but to be harmed in this way at her age is truly shocking and the incident has understandably caused her great distress. We are determined to find those responsible for this crime and bring them to justice. “I appeal to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in Leison Road and the surrounding area on Friday evening to please get in touch. I also urge anyone who may have heard any information following the incident to contact us immediately."

Nursery saved after takeover by housing firm Report by Tom Martin

Robbie Fowler meets some of the pupils.

Pupils get career advice from Reds legend Fowler PUPILS from north Liverpool were treated to a ‘career speed networking’ event at Anfield stadium - and even got to meet Reds legend Robbie Fowler! Youngsters from North Liverpool Academy, Alsop High School, Notre Dame Catholic College and the Academy of St Francis of Assisi spent the afternoon chatting with club staff and found out about their professional backgrounds and career journeys. Fowler was a guest speaker along with chief operating officer Andy Hughes, who met with the youngsters and provided advice on education, career path options and the various different roles at the club. Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, attended the event and spoke to the young people about important life skills such as integrity, truth and justice.

Margaret Aspinall chats to pupils

A NURSERY in Everton which was at risk of closure has been saved after it was taken over by a housing company. Centre 56, on Rumney Road, provides childcare, information and support for women and children who have suffered, or are at risk of suffering domestic abuse. It has been struggling financially and faced the risk of closure, until housing group Regenda decided to buy the facility. Centre 56 will now benefit from greater support and stability, while also contributing towards Regenda's plans for growth in care and support provision and broaden the services it offers to support disadvantaged communities in Liverpool. Michael Birkett, CEO of the Regenda Group, said: “We are delighted that Centre 56 is joining the Regenda Group. Both organisations believe that everyone, no matter what their circumstances, deserves the right support. “We have stepped in to prevent this wonderful nursery and vital support unit from closing down. However, this is only the start and it is really important that we improve revenue, ensuring the nursery is financially stable for years to come. “As a forward thinking busi-

about what the future holds.” Maria O’Brien of Centre 56 said: “We’re very excited to be joining the Regenda Group. The services we provide are so important to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. “By joining the Regenda Group, we are providing a more stable support service to those people. “It is important that we continue to work other with businesses across Merseyside to raise vital funds and become financially self-sufficient. Being part of a larger Group will give us a stronger platform from which to do this.”

‘Greener ’ LED street lights set to be installed

A MULTI-million pound scheme is underway that will see almost 2,000 streets across Liverpool fitted with new LED lights. A total of 15,000 street lights, serving 1,890 streets, are to be fitted with the “white light” energy saving bulbs over the next year. Phase one of the £7million programme began in Fazakerley, in June 2014, with 12,000 lights changed across 1,800 streets and the second phase is to begin where the city council has developed its Home for a Pound scheme. Liverpool City Council has made the move away from the orange sodium lights in its drive to make Liverpool a greener city and cut the carbon footprint. Approximately £2.6m is spent by Liverpool City Council per annum on the energy costs associated with running the 57,000 street lights and illuminated signs and bollards across the city. The upkeep of old street lighting is costly both in terms of energy consumption and ongoing maintenance costs, and this is money that could be invested elsewhere as the city council tackles a 68% cut to its 2010-2020 budget. Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson said: “LED street lighting not only improves the lighting across the city it makes our streets safer and our city cleaner. “Already through phase one we have made our city a healthier place to live by saving 1,500 tonnes of carbon emissions and achieved savings of more than half a million pounds. “Our maintenance costs will also reduce by £2.7m overall over the next five years once all of the street lights have been converted. We can then reinvest this saving in to other key services and communities at a time when unprecedented cuts are forcing us to make some heart-breaking decisions.” Liverpool City Council is working with SSE Enterprise to roll out the new phase of LED street lighting. The Project Manager for SSE Enterprise, John Bate said "This is an exciting opportunity for SSE Enterprise to work in partnership with the Council to reduce their energy and ongoing cost of its street lighting whilst making a dramatic improvement to the quality of light for its residents and communities." This second phase will reduce the energy consumption for these lights by 82%, cutting the council’s energy bill by a further £260,000 a year. There will also be a reduction in carbon of about 1,300 tonnes, bringing a saving of £21,000 and there will be maintenance savings of approximately £47,000 a year.

Dangerous driver who killed friend back in jail A MOTORIST, who was put behind bars eight years ago after his dangerous driving caused the death of a friend, is back in jail after crashing a stolen car. Callum Connerty, from Kirkdale, drove off at speed when police spotted him driving a stolen Golf GTI and after ignoring police signals for him to stop he barged into a car in front and shunted it into a bush. The driver and passenger in that Ford Fiesta were left dazed but fortunately uninjured, Liverpool Crown Court heard. The damaged Golf, which had earlier been going at three times the speed limit, slowed down and when it stopped in nearby Farnworth Street, Kensington, Connerty ran off but was detained. 28-year-old Connerty, a father-of-two, was jailed for 14 months on Wednesday, February 9 by Judge Robert Warnock who said: “You caused severe danger to others and damage to the other vehicle. “You are in short a menace on the road and you present a danger to others on the road. I must consider the protection of the public from people like you who drive in the way described.” The court heard that Connerty’s mother is seriously ill and the judge said he had read a letter from her. “It is a distressing document which brings into sharp relief your responsibilities to others. “Your selfish interest in fast motor cars seems to take preference and that is something you will have to consider in the future.” The defendant, who appeared via video link from prison, was also banned from driving for three years and a month. He had pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle driving, failing to stop after an accident and driving while disqualified and without insurance. Connerty, of Bangor Street, Kirkdale,

Callum Connerty when he was jailed eight years ago

had been sentenced to five years detention eight years ago this month after admitting causing the death of one of his passengers, Jordan Campbell, which also happened in North Liverpool. The 17-year-old victim from Kirkdale died instantly from head injuries after Connerty crashed a Lexus at high speed while driving “like a mad man” and having never taken a driving test. Connerty, who had earlier used cannabis, had been travelling at 90 - 100 mph before losing control and ploughing into an on-coming Toyota van on Derby Road. Such was the impact the Lexus lifted into the air before spinning out of control. Both vehicles were smashed into pieces and there was debris across a wide area, and the burning engine and gear box from the Lexus were hurled across the road. Connerty ’s two other passengers had to be cut from the wreckage and the driver

and passenger of the van were seriously injured. Connerty, who was flung out in the impact lied to police about his involvement and consequently nearly evaded justice but he had confessed to the victim’s family and was arrested after further enquiries. Derek Jones, prosecuting, told the court today that police saw the defendant on the evening of January 8 this year driving the Golf which had been stolen two days earlier in West Derby and was displaying false registration plates. He was speeding on Limekiln Lane and Burlington Street near the city centre and officers put on their sirens but he did not stop. He sped along other roads before reaching Islington and Erskine Street where another patrol car took up the pursuit. Connerty, who had reached 90 mph along the 30 mph road, came up behind a Ford Fiesta driven by Richard Williamson and unable to get past because of other vehicles drove into the back of it shunting it in a bush. The court heard that his other previous convictions include driving while disqualified, without insurance and failing to stop after an accident in 2016. John Rowan, defending, said Connerty had never dealt with the loss of a brother when he was a child and felt guilty about the death of Mr Campbell. His mother is very ill and he suffers from panic attacks and depression for which he takes medication. “He intends to take positive steps to turn his life around after his time away from his partner and two young children. He is willing to engage with the mental health team and hopes to be a more positive and constructive member of society on his release,” said Mr Rowan.

Students to help teach pupils in a drive to improve area’s GCSEs Report by Tom Martin PUPILS in north Liverpool will be taught by university students as part of a new plan to drive up GCSE results in maths and science.

The students will support year 11 pupils who need one to one support to improve their GCSE grades.

Budding entrepreneurs get a taste for business at enterprise start-up event Report by Tom Martin MORE than 50 budding Sefton entrepreneurs have received expert advice on the next steps for their business dreams. They attended the Enterprise Hub Start-Up Business Conference held recently at Bootle Town Hall. The event, which was run in partnership with Sefton Council’s business support body Invest Sefton, featured three local business owners who shared tips on how they utilised support to move from an idea to a successful business. Some of the business ideas were a homemade chocolatier called Chocolatism and a coffee venture inspired by the idea of bringing a taste of African coffee to the UK. Councillor Marion Atkinson, Sefton’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “It was great to see the message getting out there that Sefton is open for business, and also to meet so many budding entrepreneurs who are inspired to be business owners of the future. “There were so many exciting ideas bouncing around the event. I heard a lot of positive responses from those attending, such as ‘I am Cllr Marion Atkinson, and Kris Swift, of Invest Sefton. grateful for all the professional advice and “By working closely with Enterprise Hub we hope guidance I was given, it really has helped.’ to provide a seamless journey of support for any “I am excited to see how these new businesses pre-start business or existing business that contacts will develop and the opportunities they will create the Growth Hub.” in Sefton.” So far Enterprise Hub has supported more than Kris Swift, business development manager at 120 new businesses to start in Sefton since the proInvest Sefton, said: “As well as supporting existing ject began in November 2015, with around 600 businesses in Sefton to grow, it is vital that we local residents signing up to the programme and encourage the development of new businesses, as starting to receive support to evaluate their ideas they are the future of the borough. and build enterprise skills.

MP’s speech on funding for hospices praised by minister Report by Tom Martin A SPEECH by Walton MP Dan Carden in the House of Commons calling for more funding for hospices was praised by a government minister. Mr Carden told Parliament in a debate last week about his experience of visiting Woodlands Hospice, in Fazakerley. The MP said: “Many people think of a hospice as a place where people go to die. “But a hospice is also a place where people go to live. “When I visited Woodlands Hospice, that’s what I found, MP Dan Carden meets staff at Woodlands Hospice. “But against the backdrop of financial although it may sound counter-intuitive – uncertainty and squeezed living standa place brimming with life.” As pressures increase on NHS budgets, ards, this is no easy feat, particularly in MP Carden wanted assurance that stat- more deprived communities like mine, utory funding for hospices, particularly in which have been hit hardest by austermore deprived areas like Walton, would ity.” He said NHS funding contribution to be protected. He added: “Woodlands Hospice must hospices needs to be on a more committed raise £1.3million per year, which they try and sustainable basis to allow for planto achieve with the help of communities ning and development, and “enable staff to direct more time and energy to where it in my constituency and beyond.

He finished by paying tribute to staff at Woodlands and volunteers in hospices across the UK.” MP Carden’s words won praise from Jackie Doyle-Price MP, the Parliamentary UnderSecretary for Health and Social Care, who was representing the government in the debate. She said: “I’d like to commend him for an excellent speech which couldn’t have been better at articulating the very positive contribution that hospices make. “The point he makes about long-term stability for funding and knowing how much you’re going to get from Government is an important one that I will take back to reflect on. “I don’t think there was anything I disagreed with in anything he said, which is quite unusual!”

Emily in call for more women to get involved in politics WOMEN in Sefton are being urged to get involved in politics - 100 years after millions of women gained the right to vote. Merseyside's Deputy Police Commissioner, Cllr Emily Spurrell, has used the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage to encourage others to seek a career as a politician. The 1918 Representation of the People Act marked the first time that any women in the UK were able to vote, meaning for the first time, the country ’s MPs were elected by women as well as men. Cllr Spurrell was speaking at the ‘Wonder Woman’ event hosted by Edge Hill University, held to celebrate the victory of those who campaigned for Votes for Women. It gave the Deputy Police Commissioner the opportunity to talk about her own experiences in politics and encourage other young women to pursue a career in public life. Cllr Spurrell said: “I was delighted to support the Wonder Woman event hosted by Edge Hill University celebrating the victories of those early pioneers who campaigned relentlessly and put their own freedom, well-being and safety on the line to fight for our right to vote today. “We have made huge strides forward over the last century, but there is still a long way to go. Sadly, being a woman in any field, but particular in politics, can still make you a target for abuse, vitriol and even threats. “Over the years I have often been described as bossy, but I have tried not to take that personally. Our society encourages men to be authoritative and to show leadership but in women it can all too often be branded as arrogance or self-importance. “I attended this event to encourage other young women not to be deterred or put off if they face similar attitudes.

Deputy Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell

“Put your hand up at every opportunity. Get involved. And don’t worry if you are that lone voice in the room.” Emily also used the opportunity to talk about the progress and achievements of women in policing. She said: “2015 marked 100 years of women in policing. “Nearly 41% of Merseyside Police’s officers and staff are women and we have two excellent female Assistant Chief Constables. “I’m also proud to say that Merseyside is just one of three areas across England and Wales to have a female PCC and Deputy PCC.”

Man threw can at bus driver and attacked shop staff after stealing two bottles of vodka By our Court Reporter A MAN from Litherland has been given a suspended jail sentence for a crime spree including theft and three assaults, one of which was on a bus driver. Stephen Ainscough, 38, of Bryant Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February 7 where he pleaded guilty to the theft of two bottles of vodka and two books and a Rubik’s cube from shops at Bootle Strand on January 20. Angela Conlan, prosecuting, said he committed those offences while on bail for three assaults and another theft, all committed on October 21, which he had previously pleaded guilty to. Mrs Conlan said that the first assault occurred at 3pm against an Arriva bus driver who was trying to eject him from the bus for racially abusing a group of females. The court heard from the driver’s victim statement, which said that Ainscough had stormed towards him and threw a can at him “hitting him in the face, leaving him with a bruised eye.” The second assault occurred less than 15 minutes later when Ainscough was confronted by a female shop assistant at a Lidl store in Seaforth, who had seen him try to steal a bottle of malt whisky. Ainscough was flailing his arms, the court heard, and struck the woman in the arms and upper body. Although he walked out of the store he was detained by police outside the nearby Railway Pub. While in the back of a police car another Lidl staff member went over to talk to the police officers about the matter when Ainscough leant out of the car and spat a their face. Mrs Conlan told the court that the nature of the assault made him worry: “It caused me great distress and concern,” the man told police said. “I am horrified and scared that he has spat in my face.” Solicitor Melanie Tomlinson said that Ainscough had a problem with anxiety and depression and that he had been misusing alcohol and drugs.” The magistrates sentenced him to 12 weeks in jail, suspended for 12 months, and ordered that he undertake rehabilitative activity along with six months of alcohol treatment. They also ordered the he pay £100 compensation to the bus driver, and £50 to each of the Lidl staff members he assaulted.

Police chase lands man in court for dangerous driving A MAN from Walton has appeared in court for dangerous driving following a high speed police chase. On February 7, John Turner, 30, of Goodison Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court where he pleaded guilty to driving a Toyota Avensis dangerously on Beatrice Street and Tawd Street in Kirkdale, and also to driving without a licence and assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty – offences which are said to have occurred on December 23. Prosecutor Angela Conlan said: “Rather than address you in full, as the Crown say this is not suitable for the magistrates’court, I will give a brief outline of the facts for the dangerous driving offence. “There was a police pursuit. The defendant goes through a red light, the wrong way down a one-way street, was driving at a speed of 70 mph and at one point shunts into a parked vehicle.” The magistrates declined jurisdiction and sent the matter to Liverpool Crown Court for Turner to appear on March 7. They also ordered an interim driving ban.

Chance to grab a grant for well-being projects

The good ship Britannia should rule the waves again! RULE Britannia, Britannia rules the waves... A good old fashioned patriotic song, a favourite of the Last Night of the Proms - but unhappily not really true in the present day. Yet until as recently as 1997 we did retain one symbol of national maritime pride, one that even the mighty USA could not boast - the Royal Yacht ‘Britannia’. She was almost inevitably decommissioned by the then Labour Government because, of course, she cost too much to maintain, she was ‘old fashioned’, ‘irrelevant’ in the modern world. Indeed not wanted on our voyage into a marvellous technological future. I can remember the tears in Her Majesty’s eyes at the decommissioning ceremony - and there were certainly some non-dry eyes amongst her crew as well. At the time there was talk of building a new, smaller (cheaper) Britannia, but this idea quietly sank without trace. So she is condemned to a permanent home as a floating museum in Edinburgh where oddly she earns quite a bit of money from visitors interested in this antiquated piece of history. Now though, MP Craig Mackinlay, and several of his Parliamentary colleagues have come up with a plan to build a new Britannia. Mr Mackinlay is savvy enough to realise that there is little or no chance of persuading the government to cough up the estimated £120 million needed to build the vessel, and he has come up with a crafty plan to get round this. Basically he suggests that we could set up a new National Lottery, specifically to raise the cash, an idea I would wholly endorse. Indeed, I would regularly contribute towards this, since so far as I am concerned this is a good cause that I fully support rather than some of the potty causes that win the support of our present lottery. Mr Mackinlay says a British firm would provide the engines for the vessel free of charge, and apparently several naval designers have offered their services ditto. Other British companies have also volunteered various services and have climbed aboard. If built, and at present I’m afraid it is a rather big ‘if ’, the new Britannia would, I reckon, fit in very well indeed with our Brexit plans for trade deals with the rest of the world. A floating platform to show other countries that we have not only national pride, but that we can still build ships. She would also be a splendid place in which to discuss trade deals - as of course was her predecessor. And frankly, particularly in this modern age, which do you think would impress the most, an American President climbing out of Air force One (which when you come down to it is only a tarted up, now old fashioned, airliner) or our Prime Minister walking down the brow from a state of the art, British built, Queen of the Oceans? Naturally, the usual suspects have already come out to pour cold water in the very real hope of sinking this project before it is even really launched. I heard an MP on TV who said she doubted that anyone would want to put cash into a lottery to build a new Royal Yacht, rather than to build a new hospital. In any case, when you shell out for the National Lottery, does all the money made go to build hospitals? Oh, then we’d have to pay to maintain her. Well, yes. But high by an individual’s standards as this may be, a drop in the ocean I would think in terms of our national budget. Also her maintenance would provide employment for skilled crafts people so this money really could hardly be called wasted. Could it?

LETTERS to the Editor

High ropes plan should be scrapped

Sefton Council has once again postponed its planning application for a high ropes course at Crosby Lakeside adventure centre. Hopefully they are reconsidering the wisdom of proceeding with this. These facilities are closing all over the country. In Pendle, Lancashire a site closed due to lack of business and one at Welwyn Garden City was temporarily closed following a serious accident. One at Markeaton Park ,Derbyshire closed due to vandalism and one at Llanberis closed. I call upon the council to swallow their pride and abandon this project. Mike Jakub Beachlawn

We would like parking permits Blocking off rat run to be introduced for our street cuts journey times

Re: Parking Problems Solved on Bedford Road article in the Bootle Champion. I am a resident of May Street, Bootle, and we have been fighting for more than three years now to have resident parking permits reintroduced in our street. The surrounding streets have a permit restriction in place. This has caused us many inconveniences as we are only a very small road with twenty-one houses. Unfortunately, during the day, May Street becomes a car park for those people employed in the Strand, the Triad and other local businesses. In the evenings and at weekends, we have residents from surrounding streets who have not bought permits parking in spaces needed by residents. One example of inconsiderate parking is a resident of Thornton Road who parks his work van in our street all weekend, taking up two spaces. We understand that people can park where they

like but the restrictions mean that we (May Street residents) are unable to park in the neighbouring streets as we risk receiving a parking ticket. Sefton Council have been notified and we are still waiting for news of a consultation process. In response to the resident from Bedford Road, it is made clear that there is a cost of £30 per permit when consultation takes place. Bedford Road is a much bigger street than ours so there are more spaces for residents to park. We would gladly pay the permit cost to have the scheme reintroduced. We don’t agree with having to pay, but the problems are so bad in our small street that we know it is the only solution. The resident should be grateful that they have the parking scheme. Claire, By email

Re: Blocking off of Edgemoor Drive. As a local resident who drives to and from Knowsley to work every day, I have found that the journey times have improved by around 10 minutes as drivers using the ‘rat run’ are not being filtered in onto Moor Lane from Edgemoor Drive. As a result I am no longer held up on Edge Lane for a possible four changes of lights and then crawling along at a snail’s pace down Moor Lane until Chesterfield Road. So far it looks as though it may be the solution to the constant hold-ups down Moor Lane. L Mason Crosby

We need another consultation

PICTURE of the week

Most residents on the estate want to keep the junction open for local traffic and have a new fully inclusive consultation. If the original consultation had been with the whole estate, this situation would not have arisen. Closure would not have been the top choice. I don’t doubt that it would have been well down the order. We implore the council to reopen the junction for the sake of us locals and keep your promise to move on with the new and fully inclusive consultation. Peter Evans, Resident of 25 years with no voice.

Crosby bypass is only solution

Nimble fingers: The Sewing Rooms social enterprise in Skelmersdale recently held a session for local Syrian refugees who honed their sewing skills and produced an embroidery to celebrate their visit. Picture by Martyn Snape.

As a resident of Edgemoor Drive I along with others are greatly against the opening of Rosemoor Drive and Cranfield Road. When these were open we suffered the rat run scenario of noisy HGVs travelling down side roads damaging parked cars. I fully understand the complaints from residents further up the road, but to simply suggest that the rat run be moved to go past my home is not solving anything. The problem that needs solving is Moor Lane, especially with hundreds of new houses being built nearby. The only solution is to build a bypass to cut out Crosby altogether but no government money will be available as it all seems to be going down south. Bryan Christian. Edgemoor Drive

If I wanted to see reactionary political views I would read the Sun or the Daily Mail. When the Champion drops through my letterbox I want to read local issues and not have a soap box for bigoted political views masquerading under the seemingly harmless title ‘One man and his dog’. When Brexit and the transition period finally happens there will be young adults aged 23 and 24 who will have to accept a situation

which was taken when they were not allowed to vote. The older people will have decided for them. However when it comes to the future we are the ones leaving this ‘mortal coil’ and the young are the remainers. It is time they were given the vote at 16 to take back control of their future.

No Access sign would be ignored One letter writer stated that a No Entry Except For Access sign. These drivers don't care. If the road is not blocked off they will still use it.

Report by Tom Martin MORE than £4,000 has been raised to help a Litherland dad battle cancer after his son persuaded his friends and headteacher to shave their hair! Matt Henderson, 41, was diagnosed with advanced oesophageal cancer and told by doctors that his only hope is to raise around £200,000 to fly over to America for specialist treatment. His son, Seb, along with his friends Jacob Jones, Harry Campbell, Joe Byrne, John Keys, Richard Rimmer and Alex Lawes decided to take part in a charity chop at The Mel Inn Social Club on Sat-

urday, February 3. Also taking part in the head shave was Matt and some of the other children’s dads. They were also joined by headteacher, Lewis Dinsdale, from English Martyrs Primary School, and the group managed to raise £4,000 through the effort. So far, an online fundraising page has seen more than £107,000 donated for Matt's cause. Last year, Matt and his wife Jo were given the devastating news that his cancer had spread to his lymph nodes and liver, and that the NHS is only able to offer palliative care. If you would like to support the cause donate via the JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/help4matt

AN inspirational fundraiser who has spent years raising awareness of a blood cancer charity is appealing for more volunteers to help him to continue his vital work. Kevin Dunne, 70, founded the ‘Stem Cell Scousers fundraising group to raise awareness and funds for the national Anthony Nolan charity two years ago. The charity uses its register to match potential stem cell donors to blood cancer patients in desperate need of a stem cell transplant. It also carries out research and supports patients, for example through transplants. The Formby resident has been fundraising for the charity across Sefton for more than two years after his wife, Mary, was dia-

Kevin Dunne

gnosed with leukaemia in October 2014 and had a stem cell transplant from an anonymous unrelated donor, the only one on the worldwide registers who was a match. His brother Tony, was diagnosed nine months later and received a second chance of life from Kevin, who incredibly was a 10/10 match. One year after

Mary ’s transplant, in October 2015, Kevin donated his stem cells to Tony. Kevin set himself the task of raising £100,000 for the charity and works tirelessly in his local community, holding collections in local supermarkets and the town centre. He often holds a stall in a supermarket, raising money and awareness. Two years after starting his fundraising journey, he has raised more than £21,000 for Anthony Nolan, as well as £4,000 for other charities. Kevin said: “Stem Cell Scousers have now recruited two Formby councillors Denise Dutton and Gemma Peace to the team and have support from Liverpool MP Louise Ellman - but we can't stress enough how urgently we need more new volunteers.” To volunteer, email kevindunne2@googlemail.com

Report by Tom Martin FIRE engines based at Bootle and Netherton Community Fire Station are now carrying petfriendly oxygen masks thanks to generous donations from animal lovers. The masks, provided by a charity called Smokey Paws, are part of a kit specially tailored for small household pets and larger animals. The kits consist of three pet-sized oxygen masks that can be used for a variety of animals. They also include oxygen tubes, muzzles and a slip lead in case an animal becomes agitated while being rescued. They range in size to fit small pets such as hamsters, snakes, dogs and cats and larger animals such as sheep and horses, and are designed to fit snugly around the snout of animals to ensure a better flow of oxygen. Group Manager Rob Pritchard, An example of a pet-friendly oxygen mask in use who has worked closely with Smokey Paws to help procure the masks for MFRS therapy to assist in their immediate care and recovfire engines, said: “It’s fantastic to now have pet ery.

'Personal service backed by 50 years know-how in the business. Matthew Brough, Amy McInenerny and Katy Taylor

Pupils talk their way into public speaking final ANFIELD pupils managed to talk their way through to the regional finals of a public speaking competition. Matthew Brough, Amy McInenerny and Katy Taylor, who are all members of Archbishop Beck College’s Senior Public Speaking Society, were invited to take part in the Merseyside and Liverpool Branch, English Speaking Union (ESU) final, held last week in the Athenaeum Club in Liverpool. Despite coming up against different schools from across Merseyside, they proved to be top of the class and will now go on to compete in the Regional Final, to be held in Cheshire. If they win this, they could be debating in the National Final in Cambridge. A spokesperson for the school said: “Matthew took on the difficult role of chairperson, Amy was the demanding questioner, and Katy was our out-

standing, eloquent, and confident speaker. All three students were praised for their very competent, skilled and mature team performance. “Matthew was awarded the Best Chairperson Award, with wonderful praise from the judges about Katy and Amy's outstanding performance. The team won the Merseyside Branch final and will now represent Merseyside in the Regional final at the Grange School, Cheshire. They are only one step away from the National Final in Cambridge. “Our speaking society has been an inspirational team who have all worked so hard to achieve something truly outstanding, special and memorable. “I have been really impressed with how they have all helped each other, truly a team effort.”

ActionAid group appeals for donations to help Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar

Man to go before crown court after he admits producing cannabis worth £10k

CROSBY ActionAid Supporter Group is appealing for donations to its Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal. More than 655,000 Rohingya refugees are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance after fleeing violence in Myanmar to seek safety in Bangladesh.

A MAN from Maghull will be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court for sentencing after admitting cultivating cannabis. Matthew Rogerson, 31, of Moorhey Road, pleaded guilty to producing 26 cannabis plants when he appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February

Most of the refugees are women and children who have been forced to leave their homes in north Rakhine, arriving in Bangladesh exhausted, injured and traumatised after walking for days. Donations can be left at a

number of local shops: Classique Hairdressing, Status, Pritchard's Bookshop, College Road Post Office, Short's Chemist, Pitchforth News, Barnett's Wholefoods and Write Blend. The local group can also be contacted on 0151 928 3584.

7. Angela Conlan, prosecuting, said that they were found in his home on October 21 and that the value was between £10,000 and £15,600. “The electricity meter had also been bridged,” she said, adding that the “starting point” for sentencing was one-year custody so

it should be sent to the crown court. Mr Rogerson’s solicitor made no representations to the court and the magistrates declined jurisdiction. He was granted unconditional bail to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on March 7.

Summit discusses impact of cheap alcohol A CONFERENCE has taken place to look at ways to combat the negative impact cheap alcohol is having on locals in north Liverpool. Members of public health, the city council, the NHS and other experts met up on Tuesday, January 30 to discuss what more can be done to tackle the issue and one of the speakers was Dr Richard Piper, who was recently appointed chief executive of national body, Alcohol Research UK. One of the options discussed was how Liverpool

could influence the introduction of minimum unit pricing, which in Scotland is brought in this May. It will drive up the cost of super strength lager and cider, some of which is as cheap as £1 a litre at the moment. In the last five years, Liverpool has seen a levelling off in the number of people admitted to hospital due to alcohol. However, the city still has the eighth highest hospital admission rate in the country.

Fundraisers including the Hollyoaks and Freshfields team at the opening of the Rescue2Rescue Cycle Challenge 2018

Soap stars turn out to support animal rescue charity Report by Danielle Thompson TV STARS braved chilly weather to launch Freshfield Animal Rescue’s cycling challenge in Liverpool. Stars of the Channel 4 programme Hollyoaks turned out to take on the Rescue2Rescue Cycle Challenge 2018 to raise funds for the charity, which cares for unwanted and abused animals in Ince Blundell and Liverpool. The Cycle Challenge pits teams of four people against each other, as they try to achieve the fastest time in a virtual race between Freshfields’ 2 rescue centres in North Wales and Liverpool – and people can get involved by uploading their scores to the charity’s page on social media site Facebook. To get things underway, Freshfields took on a Hollyoaks team led by Daisy Wood-Davis, who volunteers for the charity. She brought along some well-known friends from the popular show to help out, much to the delight of Hollyoaks fans. Her team completed the 120 miles in a very respectable time of two hours 30 minutes, raising £462.42 –

and the valiant Freshfields team were pipped at the post, crossing the line with a total of £301.50 in two hours 30 minutes and 30 seconds. John Rullo, fundraising manager for the charity said: “We’ve set up the Cycle Challenge League Table, which will be updated on social media as new scores come in. Hollyoaks are the current league leaders, but that can change if you and your mates have got what it takes. “Our two rescue centres are connected not just by 120 miles but by 40 years of history, saving the lives of homeless and abused animals. Our local communities are at the heart of everything we do, and we want them to enjoy using their pedalpower to raise funds for the animals. “We’d love to hear from schools, colleges, gyms, leisure centres and workplaces everywhere. It’s a fun challenge suitable for all ages and fitness levels, and the top of the leaderboard is yours for the taking. Just get in touch and we’ll give you everything you need to get started.” Last week, the Champion revealed that the team had won Charity Today Magazine’s Animal Welfare Charity of the Year award.

No stranger to theatre, Fennah wrote the stage play adaptation of Helen Forrester’s Twopence to Cross the Mersey which has enjoyed success spanning 20 years. It was John Lennon’s mother, Julia Lennon, who introduced him to the world of pop music, teaching him to play rock and roll on a banjo, given to her by John’s grandfather. The play is about a quest to find the holy grail of pop memorabilia– the first instrument John Lennon learned to play, which has been missing for 60 years and is now worth millions to whoever finds it. Mysteriously, the banjo went missing shortly after Julia’s death. One thing is certain though, if it did resurface it is estimated to be worth in the region of five million pounds. Set in present day Liverpool, Lennon’s Banjo is based on the 2012 novel Julia’s Banjo written by Rob Fennah and Helen A Jones. A mix of fact and fiction, the production will be directed by Mark Heller.

MOTORS

Five year wait is over - but only way is Up now for Volkswagen! IT’S the sort of late landing an Irish budget airline would be proud of. There’s arriving fashionably late – and then there’s the Volkswagen Up GTI. Connoisseurs of pint-sized and spiced-up hatchbacks might have already read that as of this week the smallest of Wolfsburg GTI-badged wonders has just gone on sale across the UK. You might have also read in the motoring mags about how it copes tremendously with tight turns, and seen

James May making excitable squawking noises while driving it on The Grand Tour. But the fact remains that Volkswagen first started promising us a spruced-up version of the teeny-tiny up way back in 2013, at a time when I was actually using a bog-standard Up as a company car. I can only assume that Volkswagen was being considerate by teasing us with it in concept car form – albeit missing that elusive third letter and badged as just the GT then – so it could give press-on drivers like me the chance to save up for it. Which is a good thing, because even in the poverty spec guise I reckon the Up’s the best car VW currently makes (especially now that the Scirocco has been pensioned off). But all those years of teasing car nuts

The Up GTI is the smallest hot hatch Volkswagen makes

with the idea of an Up with added oomph has given the rest of the motoring world time to catch up. For a few hundred pounds less, for instance, you can have the Renault Twingo GT, which follows roughly the same formula but sticks the engine behind the rear seats and spits all the power out through the rear wheels. So basically it’s a Porsche 911 that’s more practical and easier to park. There’s also the Smart ForFour Brabus, which uses the same engine as the Twingo in a much heavier package and slaps on a £20k price tag for the privilege. Erm, and that’s about it. Sure, there’s a new Suzuki Swift Sport on the way too but it’s astonishing that there’s no Sport spinoff of Ford’s Ka+ and that Vauxhall’s VXR boffins haven’t got

their hands on an Adam. There’s no GTI twist on Peugeot’s 108 or a VTS variant of its sister car, the Citroen C1. Even VW hasn’t extended the GTI fun factor to the Up’s extended cousins – why isn’t SEAT doing a Mii Cupra, or Skoda Citigo vRS? Hot hatches inject a sparkle of excitement into the all-too-often anodyne world of front-wheel-drive supermarket companions, and the smaller and lighter they start off the more fun and immediate they end up being in GTI form. Come on carmakers, let’s have some more! Until then the only way is Up, even if it is five years late. Or to a Twingo GT, if you’re being awkward. David Simister is the editor of Classic Car Weekly.

Bucks bring in Edgar to boost strikeforce

BOOTLE joint-managers Joe Doran and Phil Stafford have bolstered their attacking options with the signing of Kevin Edgar from AFC Liverpool. The Bucks confirmed the signing in a statement released on Sunday evening. He was expected to make his debut in Tuesday's game at Barnton. The forward arrives at the TDP Solicitors Stadium having scored 15 times in 27 appearances for the Reds this season including two against his new club back in December. Meanwhile, the Bucks confirmed on Saturday that winger Declan Gregson had left the club to join Litherland Remyca. An official club Tweet read: “We can confirm that Declan Gregson has left the Bucks to join Litherland Remyca - everyone at the club would like to thank Dec for his contribution this season, and wishes him all the best for the future.” The winger, signed from City of Liverpool in August, made 9 appearances for the Bucks scoring 2 times. Bootle’s scheduled match at Winsford last Saturday was postponed due to waterlogged pitch. The Bucks are due to host Northwich Victoria on Saturday.

Reds confident managerial duo can move the club forward AFC Liverpool officials say they are confident the recently appointed managerial pair of Stuart Keir and Ben Williams will take the club forward. A club official said: “The decision to appoint Stuart and Ben was reached following an extensive application and interview process as members of the Board met with a number of high quality applicants. “Due to the volume and standard of candidates, the final decision was given much thought and Stuart and Ben were chosen to lead the club forward in the second half of the season and beyond. “Together they bring a wealth of coaching and managerial experience to the club. “Before being assistant manager at AFC Liverpool, Stuart had successful spells on the management teams at Litherland Remyca and Maghull Town. “Ben is extremely well respected in the region having years of experience managing at Step 7 for Old Xaverians and being selected to manage the County FA Reps team. “We would like to thank all the candidates who took the time to go through the application and interview process, the decision was not reached easily.” AFC ’s scheduled home match against West Didsbury & Chorlton last Sturday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. The Reds are due to visit Squires Gate on Saturday.

Marine face crunch clash with fellow strugglers

THIS Saturday will give Marine a chance to win their first league match at home since early October as they desperately battle for precious points to pull them clear of the relegation zone. Tommy Lawson's side have struggled at the Marine Travel Arena in league fixtures, with their last victory coming on October 10 with a 3-1 win against Stalybridge Celtic. Last Saturday's away game at Shaw Lane was called off due to a waterlogged pitch. The postponement had left the Mariners third from bottom in the EvoStik Premier Division table with 29 points, one place above Stalybridge Celtic who are just one point behind and have four matches in hand. But Marine have since jumped up a place as fellow strugglers Halesowen Town had four points deducted by the league this week for fielding an ineligible player. This has left Halesowen, who Marine host on Saturday, at the bottom of the table on 26 points. It provides a good opportunity for Marine to improve on their their miserable home record and try to gain some ground on the teams above. Last Tuesday, Marine were beaten away at Sutton Coldfield Town in the league. The home side scored after only nine

minutes. Sutton doubled their lead on 25 minutes to give themselves a two goal cushion going into half time. Marine gave themselves a chance when captain Danny Mitchley pulled a goal back on 75 minutes, but Sutton wrapped up all three points with a third goal only three minutes later. Meanwhile midfielder Vinny Bailey has left the club to rejoin Atherton Collieries. Southport-based Bailey joined the Mariners from Atherton during the summer. Bailey has been a regular name on Tommy Lawson’s team sheet this season. A spokesperson for Marine said: “We wish him well in his future career.” Another player out the door is George Hassall, who has returned to AFC Fylde. The club spokesperson added: “We wish him the best of luck in his future career and extend our thanks to the Coasters for loaning the player.” Meanwhile, Marine has announced the signing of midfielder Charlie Duke from Rushall Olympic. St Helens based Duke, 20, started out at his home town club before signing a professional contract with Torquay United in the summer of 2016. He had loan spells back at St Helens Town, St Austell and Truro City before joining the Pics in summer 2017.

Outstanding defence helps Waterloo hold out for win to go second in table Carlisle 15 Firwood Waterloo 18 FIRWOOD Waterloo moved up to second in North One West following a 15-18 win away at Carlisle. Cumbria is never an easy hunting gound but the Merseyside club have now been up there twice and returned with nine points after taking a try bonus point at St Benedict’s earlier in the season. Firwood Waterloo opened the scoring

with a try from Alwyn Watkin - Williams from a penalty to touch and a catch and drive. The home side hit back with a converted try to take the lead. But forceful play by the pack, a break down the blindside by Nick Dwyer and with Matt Tindall providing the link, Jacob Allen went in at the corner. The scrum half also converting from the touchline for the visitors to retake the lead. Just before the interval Carlisle slotted a penalty to close the half with Firwood

Waterloo 10-12 to the good. Carlisle began the second half the better with a try to restore their advantage but two penalties from Dwyer put the visitors back in the lead. Carlisle came again but with Firwood Waterloo mounting some outstanding defence the line held allowing the visitors to take the honours. This Saturday Firwood Waterloo are at home to Warrington and will be looking for revenge after going down at The Fortress earlier in the season.

Team ‘brimming with confidence’ after seven wins in their last eight games “IT'S always satisfying to come back with a win wherever it is but we knew this was going to be a tough fixture,” director of rugby Steve Wood said after his team’s victory at Carlisle. “It was, as they put us under trem-

dous pressure in the final stages but our defence held and that is something I am really pleased about. “We are now second although Northwich have still two games in hand but they have to come to Blun-

dellsands next month for I guess what will be an absolute crunch match for both clubs. “We are now playing with real confidence having won seven of our last eight games and as a side we fear no

one in this league. “Baring in mind we had six of what we would consider our normal starting line up out injured this was a stirring performance on a very muddy and greasy pitch.”
