Taxi engulfed in flames after fault with engine Carra returns to commentary for Danish TV JAMIE Carragher has returned to football commentary for the first time since he was suspended from Sky Sports following his spitting incident. The Bootle-born pundit commentated on the recent Champions League quarterfinal clash Carragher featured on between Real Champions League Madrid and Juventus for Den- match coverage mark’s TV3 Sport. Last month, Jamie was filmed spitting through his car window towards a 14-yearold girl and her dad, who were Manchester United fans. The former Reds defender claimed he was “goaded� and it was a “moment of madness� but Sky Sports chose to suspend him from his punditry job until the end of the season. Carragher is also employed by TV3 Sport, but they decided against suspending him and he has taken on the role of commentator. Peter Norrelund, CEO of MTG Sport said: “There must be no doubt that he deeply regrets the episode and is shocked at his own behaviour. “But I do not think a single mistake should have such serious consequences that we can no longer have Jamie Carragher on the team. “Therefore, he is back on the football field for TV3.�

ALFIE APPEAL REJECTED BY JUDGES



Police praise ‘good natured’ racegoers at Aintree Festival

Alfie Evans

Report by Tom Martin ALFIE Evans' parents have again had their appeal dismissed and told their son will not be allowed to be transported abroad for treatment following the latest decision at the Court of Appeal in London. It was previously thought that dad Tom Evans and mum Kate James had exhausted every legal avenue in trying to keep their 23-month-old son alive, but last week the judge overseeing the case issued an emergency order paving the way for a further hearing on Monday, April 16. However, at this hearing, a panel of three appeal judges dismissed the parents' pleas once more, with Lord Justice Davis, commenting: “We cannot have a kind of legal Tom Evans and Kate James 'Groundhog Day' where you come back maintains the right to ask permission directly to the again and again and again on the same point.� Lord Justices Moylan and Davis, and Lady Justice Supreme Court, which they were expected to do King, also rejected a plea to take the appeal to the yesterday (Tuesday, April 17).

During the Court of Appeal proceedings on Monday, the judges condemned reports that some of the recent protests held outside Alder Hey resulted in staff finding it difficult to get into work due to road blockages and other claims that some protesters had entered the paediatric intensive care ward. Merseyside Police also confirmed they were looking into claims made on social media that hospital staff were verbally abused and intimidated. Over the past week, there have been several protests held outside Alder Hey, with hundreds of people turning up to show their support for Alfie and his parents, and a large crowd had gathered to hear this latest appeal decision. The hospital issued a statement pleading with crowds to be “respectful� and keep noise levels to a minimum because they claimed it was disturbing Continued inside

Dog code launched to set tails wagging! Report by Tom Martin

TAILS will be wagging with the launch of a brand new campaign from Sefton Council Good Dogs Code. The group has launched a series of smartphone QR codes which will be displayed across parks, beaches and main roads in the borough to encourage good and responsible dog ownership. The interactive adverts work by taking a photo of the code on a phone camera which then directs the user to the Sefton Good Dog Code website which details how dog owners can encourage others to be responsible for their pets. Local residents and dog lovers have worked alongside Sefton in the creation of the Code, which tells residents to clean up after their pets, respect those who don’t like dogs, follow the rules and ensure their dog is socialised Dog owners will be able to access the new feature them.

Scrambler rider wanted by police after car shot at

Protesters outside Alder Hey Children’s Hospital last week

Alfie protesters urged to ‘respect families and staff at Alder Hey’ From Page 1. other patients. Following Monday’s decision, Mr Evans urged supporters to stop the ongoing protests so they can “keep the relationship with the staff at ease and peace and make sure no parents are being affected any more.” Some of the people, who call themselves Alfie's Army, sang during the protests and passing cars beeped their horns in support. There was also a bouncy castle and gazebo placed on a central reservation on East Prescott Road outside the hospital. At one point, Mr Evans addressed the crowd by standing on top of a bus stop. Merseyside Police were called to monitor the protest, which they say “did cause significant traffic disruption and inconvenience for other people trying to access the hospital.” A spokesperson for Alder Hey said: “Noise from recent protests has unfortunately affected our patients so we would ask that noise levels outside the hospital are kept to a minimum and, for example, car horns are not sounded. “Loud noise affects sleep and raises anxiety levels for our patients especially when recovering from procedures, so please bear them in mind.” The protest was held after Mr Evans claimed he had tried to discharge Alfie from Alder Hey but was stopped by police. He uploaded a video to Alfie's Army Facebook page showing the inside of the hospital ward, with officers stood outside a door. The parents want to take Alfie to a hospital in Rome and say they have a private ambulance and jet on stand-by, even though a date to withdraw life support had been set by the courts. Speaking outside Alder Hey on Friday, April 13, Mr Evans said he had been told he could face prison if he removes Alfie. Some social media users have posted messages of support to Alder Hey and parents have been sharing their own experiences of how staff helped their sons and daughters. Police say they are investigating a number of reports on social media that some Alfie’s Army sup-

porters were at the centre of “verbal abuse and acts of intimidation.” Chief Inspector Chris Gibson said: “Whilst many people have gathered to protest in a peaceful way, Merseyside Police is now investigating a small number of reports, some of which originate from social media, as well as instances of verbal abuse and acts of intimidation from those outside the hospital. “This is extremely unhelpful for all concerned and we are investigating further to establish the full circumstances. “We would like to remind the public that this is a hospital for sick children and it should not be forgotten that many families are going through extremely challenging and emotional times. “We would ask protestors to respect families and staff, including the poorly children in the wards and to ensure that access to the hospital is not restricted at any time, so that services including the blood and ambulance service can run as efficiently as possible. “We recognise and seek to facilitate the rights of people to protest in a peaceful way. “We are committed to maximising the safety of the public and we will not tolerate criminal behaviour under any circumstances. “Anyone who may suffer intimidation or harassment is asked to report this to us or the hospital, so we can take the most appropriate action.” Mr Evans posted on social media after Monday’s decision: “Can I ask that after tonight I would really appreciate if everyone has a break from the protesting please. “Me and Kate are so so so grateful for all your time you have put into it and support we can not thank you enough. “I will update you on where we go from here and if we get permission then that would be a good reason to demonstrate peacefully. “Me and Kate need to now focus on spending precious time with Alfie and focus on the next legal step, keeping the relationship with the staff at ease and peace and make sure no parents are being affected any more.”

POLICE are hunting a scrambler bike rider after a car was shot at in Bootle. Officers were sent to Celia Street on Monday, April 16 at around 7pm to reports that shots had been fired at a vehicle parked on the road. A black scrambler bike was seen making off in the direction of Marsh Street at the time of the shooting and officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the off-road vehicle. No one was injured in the incident and an investigation is currently underway. Chief Inspector Jason Crel- Celia Street lin said: “We are currently in the process of establishing the exact circumstances and officers are in the area while a scene is preserved and enquiries are carried out. “We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in Celia Street and the surrounding area, or saw a scrambler bike in the area. Any information, however small it may seem, could prove vital to the investigation. “Tackling the issue of gun crime is a top priority for the force and we will continue to target those people who are intent on bringing guns onto the streets and causing harm in our communities. But we need

those communities to assist us and give information about where guns are being stored and who is involved in gun crime. “You can call our dedicated hotline or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously. Information from our communities is vital in identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice, enabling us to take these people and their weapons off the streets.” Anyone with any information that could help the police investigation is asked to contact @MerPolCC, the gun crime hotline on 0800 230 0600, 101 or @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Adding silver to bronze makes it a Commonwealth Games to remember for swimmer Hollie! Report by Tom Martin SWIMMER Holly Hibbott, who has previously won the Sefton Young Sports Person of the Year Award, will bring home two medals from the Commonwealth Games in Australia after winning a silver medal in the 400 metre freestyle on Tuesday, April 10. The 18-year-old, from Southport, has already won a bronze medal in the 4x200m Freestyle for Team England.

Holly saw an 800m Freestyle medal snatched from her grasp in the last few metres at the Games which took place on the Gold Coast. She held third place for much of the race but Australia’s Kiah Melverton touched home ahead of her to take the bronze. Holly's time of 8:29.05 was a new lifetime best and only 0.46 seconds behind Melverton, who clocked 8:28.59. The swimmer, who represents Stockport Metro, was one of the first swimmers origin-

ally announced in Team England in October last year. She enjoyed a successful 2017, winning a gold medal in the 800m Freestyle at the Swim England National Winter Championships in December. Holly also set a lifetime best of 8:30.66 to reach the 800m Free Final on her World Championship debut in Budapest. Back in 2015, when she was only 16, Holly was crowned Young Sports Person of the Year at the Sefton Sports Awards.

Hackney cab engulfed in Owner’s bid to turn ‘jewel on hill’ flames on busy street into a youth centre THESE dramatic images show the moment a hackney cab became engulfed in flames on a busy Bootle street. Emergency services were called out to Linacre Road, at its junction with Stanley Road, at around 8.30am during rush hour traffic on Friday, April 13. Motorists and passers-by were quick to take images and videos to upload onto social media. Firefighters were able to put out the flames before police arrived, with the vehicle left completely destroyed. A spokesperson for Merseyside Police confirmed no one was injured in the incident, and described the cause of the fire as a “vehicle malfunction.”

Report by Tom Martin A HOTEL chain owner from Walton wants to take over the closed-down Everton Library and transform the dilapidated building into a youth centre. The historic but derelict library, locally known as the ‘Jewel on the Hill’, has long been earmarked for refurbishment over the years but still remains empty and in desperate need of a new owner to breathe fresh life into it. Now, Lawrence Kenwright, who runs hotel company Signature Living, has eyed up the rundown property as a possible location to open a new youth centre for north Liverpool youngsters. Lawrence said: “I was born and bred in Walton and I am a very proud Scouser. I want to create a youth centre in the Walton area, that goes one step further. The site that I have long since hoped to save is Everton Library. “If the people of Liverpool

want this, then the more people who share it, the better chance we will be given the chance to restore it.” Lawrence first formed Signature Living in 2008 and the company now trades from nine venues in Liverpool, including the Shankly Hotel and the Titanic Hotel. The businessman said he has always wanted to open a youth centre, and originally wanted to move into Croxteth Hall, but this proposal fell through. He said: “I have long had

hopes to save the Everton Library site which is in grave danger of falling into a state beyond repair. “We do not need any grant funding or help from any other faction, just a long leasehold interest, from our council. I hope many other companies will also join us in this action.” Everton Library was built in 1886 and closed in 1998 and was used as a community venue for four years. The Grade II listed building has been empty since 2002.

Man stops using drugs after being ‘educated’ by charity A BOOTLE drug user caught with cocaine says he has stopped using class A drugs after being “educated” by a drug treatment charity. Aaron Taylor, 24, of Gray Street, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on April 11 where he pleaded guilty to possession of two wraps of cocaine. Prosecutor Daryl Pollard said: “The defendant was cycling and was stopped by two police officers on Gray Street. On a search of the defendant one wrap containing white powder was found in his sock. “He was taken to the station where he was searched again and a further wrap was found, both believed to be cocaine.” Solicitor David Kilty said that Taylor, who had

no previous convictions, had now lost his good character. Following his arrest he said he had attended Addaction, a charity that helps treat people with drug, alcohol or mental health issues, and also went to follow up appointments. “He says that he is not using class A drugs anymore,” Mr Kilty said. “He says, ‘I’ve been educated in respect of that.’ He seems to be an intelligent young man and it seems to have had a good effect on him.” The magistrates fined him £80 and ordered that he pay £115 in costs and victim surcharge. Chair of the magistrates’ bench, Ann O’Brien said: “So you have been to Addaction and you are educated now, and this stuff is not going to feature in your life. Good on you.”

Police launch appeal A MAN with links to Bootle is wanted by police in connection with the trafficking of controlled drugs into prison. Philip Shilton, 33, (right) is wanted by Lancashire Police after an incident on September 27 last year when packages containing class B drugs and mobile phones were discovered in the grounds of HMP Garth and HMP Wymott in Lancashire.

Hospice to offer free will writing service for donation WOODLANDS Hospice will be working in partnership with a number of solicitors and professional will writers to offer a will writing service for the remainder of this month. They will be offering their services for free, in return for a charitable donation to the hospice. Alan Kelly, grants and legacies officer at Woodlands Hospice, said: “According to a recent survey, it is believed around 60% of us have not made a will. Making a will is not dif-

ficult with the right advice and can help to avoid additional stress for your loved ones during difficult times. “We are working with solicitors and professional will writers across the city and we are so grateful for their support. Making a will is a source of great comfort knowing that your affairs are in order and your loved ones are protected. Not only that, anyone who does take part will be helping us to carry on caring for our patients and their families in the local community.

“We would urge anyone who has not yet made a will to consider contacting us and see if our professional advisors can help.” One person who has already taken advantage of the service is Diane Jeffers, an employee at the ophthalmology department at Aintree Hospital. Diane said: “I wanted to do something to support Woodlands after my very dear friend Lynn spent her last days there in March 2017. “In return for my donation

I received excellent advice and it was reassuring to know that I had taken care of such an important task, one which can often be overlooked in our busy dayto-day lives.” If you would like to take advantage of the will writing service contact Alan Kelly on 0151 529 8152 or e-mail alan.kelly@aintree.nhs.uk Alternatively, if you would like more information about the work of the hospice in general contact 0151 529 4143.

Report by Tom Martin A NEW bill that could help south Sefton residents who have fallen victim to the “leasehold scandal” could be given a huge boost with the issue due to be debated in Parliament later this year. The Champion has reported how homeowners in the borough who have bought new-build homes are having to deal with expensive constraints, with a number of affected properties in Litherland, Crosby, Netherton and Bootle. On top of paying the freeholder a yearly fee, which increases annually, if any resident wishes to sell their home, build an extension or even change the front door or carpets, they must ask the permission of the landlord and may even have to pay an extra fee. The home owners were informed when they purchased their properties that they would be able to buy their freeholds at a later date, but they then found the freeholds had been sold off to a third party who they have found next to impossible to contact. The Leasehold Reform Bill 201719, which was introduced to Parliament in November, would introduce a simple and fair scheme, with a clear and transparent statutory pricing model, were the amount for a leaseholder to purchase their freehold would be capped at no more than ten times the annual ground rent. The bill also ensures that a leaseholder would not have to pay the freeholder ’s costs just to enforce their own rights under the lease, and would establish a new compensation scheme for those who have been misled into leasehold agreements. The news has been welcomed by Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson, who said: “This really is the housebuilding scandal of current times, as

MP Bill Esterson

people who buy new build houses are forced into this situation where they don’t even actually own their homes but 'rent' them from the freeholder, the landlord, for 999 years. “Homeowners are left in limbo because they feel powerless as to whether they will ever be able to own their freeholds and, if they don’t, if they will ever be able to sell their homes. “This bill is really important because although the government recently consulted on banning leaseholds for new properties, it was unclear what would happen to those already trapped by them, or who may have been mis-sold them.” The new system would be based on a simple calculation, with a cap on the total paid for a freehold and would replace the lengthy, complicated and expensive private system currently in operation. Similar legislation exists in Scotland, Northern Ireland and a number of other countries. A Government consultation, “Tackling unfair practices in the leasehold market”, closed on September 19 last year and proposed a number of measures including banning the sale of leasehold houses in future and limiting the ground-rent levied on other leasehold properties.

In addition to acquiring sewing and dressmaking expertise, working on these items gives service users the chance to learn a range of useful craft skills, including cross stitch, patchwork, felt work and beading. This in turn enables them to offer a helping hand to other New Directions activities, for example making costumes for the successful New Directions drama group, New Centre Stage. Cathy Donnelly, who runs New Threads with colleague Jacky Cooney, said: “Service users have been making some really excellent items over recent months, and we’re always on the lookout for new customers who may wish to buy them. “They are justifiably proud when they see the demand there is for the items they have created, and all the revenue generated is ploughed back into the project’s future activities.”

Everton pay the loan back through us, we charge a higher interest rate than we lend at and we make money from a commercial deal.” Mayor Anderson, who is an Everton supporter, added in another post: “Honestly I love my city more than I do Everton, we are arranging a commercial deal with protected guarantees in place that will make £175 million over 25 years. The accelerated regeneration of the north of Liverpool will generate £20m per year and thousands of jobs.” In response to a person who asked why the council can't borrow money to fix potholes, he replied: “I can borrow the money for Everton because they will make the repayments back and pay Liverpool City Council interest. When I borrow the money for the roads, residents will pay through council tax.”

MAYOR of Liverpool Joe Anderson has again been forced to defend the council's decision to help fund Everton's proposed new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock. Liverpool City Council say the proposed deal will involve them borrowing £280 million to lend to the Blues to help towards the stadium costs. The club would then pay the loan repayments plus interest, meaning the council would make a profit of £7m per year over 25 years. However, since the club revealed the plans to move away from Goodison Park and build a £300m stadium on Bramley Moore Dock, Blues chief executive Robert Elstone admitted that the cost had “escalated significantly”. Everton will need to source funding, but Mr Elstone said he remains hopeful of doing this and putting forward a planning application at some point this year. Last week, Mayor Anderson came under fire for suggesting the council could foot the entire bill if Everton's funding bids fall through. He said at Liverpool business site LBN that “there is an open door to the possibility – it is not ruled out.” It prompted a backlash from the Liberal Democrats, who heavily criticised the idea, as well as social media users who claimed Mayor Anderson should be focussing on other issues, such as potholes. During a series of posts on Twitter, Mayor Anderson defended the council's position and reassured concerned locals that taxpayers won’t be affected. He said: “It does not cost council taxpayers any-

Residents urged to share views in care project HEALTHWATCH Sefton staff are urging residents to share their feedback on using local care, residential or nursing homes in the run-up to national Care Home Open Day this Saturday (April 21). On Care Home Open Day, care homes across the country open their doors to showcase

what goes on within the home and to connect with the local community across all generations. The recent campaign by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to raise awareness about how its inspection findings can help support people in choosing a care home also high-

lighted how choosing adult social care in England can be one of the biggest sources of stress. Maureen Kelly, chair of Healthwatch Sefton, the independent health and social care consumer champion said: “In the CQC survey, it found that 54% of those surveyed living in

the North West said choosing a care home was their most stressful life decision and we want to understand the experiences in Sefton.” People can share their feedback anonymously at healthwatchsefton.co.uk or call 0800 206 1304.

Sew Crafty celebrates six years in business Indian runner ducks Jack and Vera who were named through a social media competition.

Jack and Vera win the name game for duck duo Report by Tom Martin TWO ducks have now been named after a famous soap opera couple following a social media contest. Ian Pope who owns Church View Farm and farm shop on Southport Road in Lydiate takes care of rescued ducks which adults and children love to go and feed. After hearing that six out of eight Indian runner ducks at a local farm had been killed by a fox, Ian offered a home to the remaining two which have now been added to the feathered family, Ian posted a request on social media for what they could be named and the invitation certainly made a splash with nearly 200 suggestions put forward. Thankfully the ducks don't use Facebook as suggestions included Sweet and Sour, Aromatic and

Peking, and Crisp and A L'Orange. However, others included the less threatening Stan and Ollie, Quackie Chan and Duck Norris, Ducky and McDuckface, and Cheese and Quackers. The most liked of the suggestions went to a poll. Runner ups were Ken and Dodd at 33 votes and Ant and Dec with 16 votes. The winning names with 58 votes were Jack and Vera, after Coronation Street’s Duckworths, which was suggested several times. Indian runner ducks walk upright like penguins and run rather than waddle. They are also flightless and rarely make nests or incubate their own eggs. Ian says it is comical to watch them running around. Church View Farm is a local drop off point for clothing and essentials for the homeless. Ian says the response from the community has been “amazing.�

Offering the best selection of fabric, knitting yarn and haberdashery under one roof for miles, it’s no wonder Sew Crafty are celebrating six years of business at their shop in Hillside with a sense of pride. There is such a huge variety on offer, it’s worth making the trip to see for yourself.

Police praise ‘good-natured’ racegoers at Aintree Festival

THIS year's policing operation at the Aintree Festival has been hailed a success. Around 150,000 racegoers attended the three day event and police say there was a great atmosphere each day with goodnatured crowds. Aintree Chief Superintendent Dave Charnock said: “The Grand National Festival always brings large crowds to Aintree and this year the event was no exception. “During the course of the three days the vast majority of those attending were able to safely enjoy a good natured atmosphere and have a great time. “Our officers really enjoyed

engaging with racegoers and it has been very pleasing to see the support the public has shown for them, in particular as our Merseyside Police Mounted Section launch their Stand Tall sponsorship campaign to help keep police horses on our streets. “Despite the high number of racegoers there were only five arrests on the course over the three days and I would like to thank everyone, including those who worked during the festival, for conducting themselves in an impeccable manner and helping to make this a safe and enjoyable occasion for all those who attended.”

Police at the Aintree Festival praised racegoers for their good natured behaviour at the three day event.

LETTERS to the Editor Touched by tribute to street cleaner David My old friend William Twentyman and I were surprised and saddened to hear of our mutual friend David McCallister’s death (Flood of Tributes Paid to Street Cleaner, Crosby Champion). I had known David the cleaning operative for over 35 years and it was always a pleasure to stop and chat to him in the course of his duties. William and I regret that we were unable to show our respects at the crematorium, but having seen the article in the Champion we were touched by the respect Sefton Council showed for David by flying the flag at half mast on the Waterloo Town Hall and the coverage given by the Champion. We are thankful for the service and friendship David gave to us both. William Twentyman and Tony Kwok, By email

Young drivers cause more accidents than over sixties

With total respect for younger drivers and meaning no offence to them at all. What makes my blood boil is the constant referring to senior citizens as the main cause of road accidents. How dare people imply that people over sixty are at risk of causing road accidents. As an over sixty myself I still drive as I was taught and with respect for other road users. This is a new form of bullying against senior drivers. Please get the statistics on the number of accidents by younger drivers and compare them with those of over sixty drivers. These accidents are only news because

they are so rare. Insurance companies will help you with this. That's why insurance for younger ages has higher premiums. It’s not rocket science. We over sixties have more time and are less likely to be in a rush to get somewhere. We are also likely to use a phone at home and not use driving time to make and answer calls! Careful driver, Maghull

PICTURE of the week

Maybe Thatcher was right about society Our society is truly reflected in your letters section. Every week we read of speeding motorists in built up areas, residential roads used as rat runs to save a few seconds. Dog mess left outside homes and schools and bags full of it left hanging on hedgerows. Discarded litter thrown anywhere and everywhere. Cars parked on pavements obstructing access to prams, wheelchairs and the partially sighted. I never thought I would agree with Margaret Thatcher, but, perhaps she was right when she said there is no such thing as society. When did selfishness become the norm? C Campbell, By email

People need to understand Parkinson’s better In recent weeks we have heard an alarming number of stories about people with Parkinson’s being misunderstood or mistreated by the staff of public-facing businesses across the UK. Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time. Parkinson’s affects everyone differently, but the main symptoms are tremor (shaking), slowness of movement, and rigidity (muscle stiffness). Other symptoms can also include depression, anxiety, hallucinations, memory problems and dementia. Lack of public understanding can make simple things like getting the bus, paying at a checkout or even going for a coffee with friends daunting for people with Parkinson's. To make matters worse, Parkinson’s UK research shows one in every four people have had their condition confused for drunkenness, and one in ten have been laughed at in public due to their symptoms. We also know that one in three people with Parkinson’s have felt the need to cover up their symptoms, because they’re not seen as socially acceptable. This is completely unacceptable. It is time to change. Parkinson’s UK has created a free and easily accessible Parkinson’s In Your Workplace training package and, via an open letter, the charity is calling on all businesses to roll out the training and make sure their staff understand Parkinson's and can support their customers’ needs. To join the campaign for businesses to better understand Parkinson’s, visit www.parkinsons.org.uk/UFP. Together we can raise awareness and make society more understanding of Parkinson’s.

I see I’m not the only grumpy old so and so!

Reopening of Edgemoor Drive would not solve traffic problems

Well done for Jim Sharpe for highlighting a lack of standards and common sense, and also Allyson Drury (Champion Letters 11 April) - use of ‘so.’ I’m obviously not the only grumpy old ‘so an’ so’! However, have you also noticed that every TV correspondent when answering a question invariably starts with - ‘Well...’? Regarding Jim’s thoughts on Brighton and Hove Council’s enlightened ideas of modes of address, (same edition), I do understand that modern English, unlike other lan-

However, some schools seem unwilling to address their female pupils as ‘girls’, and we see TV presenters using the irritatingly increasing practice of referring to their guests as ‘you guys’, when they may be all women. This is annoying in the extreme.

I Halliwell, By email

We are all being inconvenienced by the closure as we have to go up the road, join Edge Lane and backtrack down Moor Lane We have to use these roads just like everyone else and since the closure I think traffic is flowing so much easier towards Crosby and adding a couple of minutes to my journey is nothing compared to the problems outlined above. Crosby has major traffic problems which will not be solved by reopening Edgemoor Drive. Fed up resident, Thornton

Walking football team kitted out! A WALKING football team from Crosby will be playing in a new kit after a funding donation. Crosby Veterans, who have been playing at Coronation Park for the last three years, were given a cash boost by Sefton Credit Union. The 20 players will now have a new kit for when they enter competitions. Crosby Veterans began following a 2015 Sefton Council initiative. They play every Friday at 1pm in Coronation Park, Crosby and would welcome anyone over 50 who wishes to join them. Club secretary Arthur Small said: “It’s a great way to get active, make new friends and relive your boyhood dreams of emulating Alan Ball or Roger Hunt! “There are a wide range of abilities but the main focus is just to enjoy yourself while doing a bit of exercise.” Walking football was created for those over the age of 50 and the key difference in the rules, from standard football, is that if a player runs then they concede a free kick to the other side.

Stagecoach is behind the appeal and they have called on the services of former Atomic Kitten singer Natasha Hamilton to help them find local ladies to take on the job. Currently only around 10% of Stagecoach Merseyside employees are female, and the company is keen to attract more women into the industry. To help get a better understanding of the job, Natasha got behind the wheel of a Stagecoach bus to take it for a spin. Natasha said: “I’m so excited that I’ve just driven a bus for the first Natasha behind the wheel of a Stagecoach bus time in my life! “Obviously it’s a lot different to Managing director for Stagecoach Merseyside and driving a car but once I got the hang of it and got South Lancashire, Rob Jones, said: “We’re aiming to used to the size of the bus, I really enjoyed it and I have a more diverse employee base which better have so much respect for the Stagecoach drivers reflects society and will benefit our customers. that do this day in, day out. “We can offer a great career opportunity for both “As a working mum, I think it’s important that women and men, and we already have a fantastic women who want to get back into work after hav- team of employees who do a great job. ing children have the opportunity to do that – “We’d like to encourage more women into our employers like Stagecoach can offer a stable job, workforce and just to let people know that there are decent salary and flexibility around shifts where no barriers preventing women from working in the possible so, even though women might have bus industry thought in the past that bus driving was a job for “ It’s been brilliant having Natasha with us and the men, that’s absolutely not the case anymore.

Information wanted on Sefton heroines of First World War Report by Tom Martin

THE lives of nine local women from Sefton who have been described as heroines of the First World War will be explored as part of a history project. Sefton’s Library Service are appealing for anyone with information on the nine brave ladies to come forward as they are putting together a Beyond The War Memorials Project. The information found on the women will be used to create an online biography so more people can read about their heroics. Sefton Council’s libraries development manager Andrew Farthing, said: “There are a number of women listed on Sefton’s civic war memorials but very little is known about them. “We want to highlight these brave ladies who gave their lives during World War One for the freedom from oppression that we enjoy today. “For the Beyond The War Memorials project we’ve been compiling information and photos on our heroes and heroines but we need the public’s help in delving deeper into their background. Information and photographs of these women have proved difficult to locate. “The information will go towards creating a massive online biography for most, if not all, the heroic Sefton residents who are listed on our Civic War Memorials.” The women were: l Munitions worker Mary Jane Gartside-Tipping from Southport joined the Women’s Emergency Canteens Service in 1917 and served on the Western Front. Four months into her service she was shot in the head and killed by a deranged French soldier. She was posthumously

awarded the Croix De Guerre and buried with full military honours. l Sister Janet Lois Griffiths from Southport volunteered for active service at the outbreak of the war and served in Alexandria, Egypt. She narrowly avoided being killed when a medical lorry she was travelling in collided with a train. Sadly during the rescue operation to save her fellow nurses, Janet was killed. l The third woman, Stella Rose Boue-Blandy, is from Delamere Road, in Ainsdale. At the outbreak of war, Stella joined Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Nursing Service, serving in France, Egypt, and Palestine. l Stewardess Agnes B Hird of Woodland Road, of Seaforth, left behind two sons when, at the age of 40, she was presumed lost at sea with her ship, the SS Ava, having been sunk by Axis forces. l The fifth and sixth women are from Waterloo and Seaforth. Waterloo resident Elizabeth Kennedy and Seaforth’s Florence Jones are listed on the Waterloo memorial, however little is known about either heroine. l The seventh woman is nurse Bootle-born May Wylie, who died at the age of 20 at a Military Hospital after serving faithfully with the Queen Mary Army Auxiliary Corps. She was given a military gun-carriage funeral at Anfield Cemetery. l Stewardesses Eleanor Dodwell and Christina Campbell-Rennie, both from Bootle, both served on the ill-fated RMS Lusitania which was sunk by a German U-boat in 1915. Both their names are also inscribed on the Tower Hill Memorial, London. Anyone with any information about any of these women is asked to email Lesley.davies@sefton. gov.uk or call 0151 934 4920.

Report by Tom Martin NHS commissioners in Sefton have been shortlisted for a national award after setting up an innovative programme which aims to reduce the number of people being readmitted to hospital. The medicines management team at NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (SSCCG) has been shortlisted for the Improving Safety in Medicines Management category at the prestigious HSJ Patient Safety Awards 2018. This is the second national award that the team have been shortlisted for after being shortlisted for the HSJ Value Awards last month. Approximately one-fifth of hospital readmissions are related to medication and up to half of these may be preventable. In order to address this, SSCCG and the Aintree University Hospital pharmacy team set up a service to review patient medicines in their own home, once they had been discharged from hospital. The project used a pharmacist and pharmacy technician in SSCCGs medicines management team to undertake the review and advise patients in regard to

and its residents. Mark Pennock, who helped organise the event said: “It was great to see people turn up to help and even better seeing children come along. “It was also very rewarding because residents took time out to thank us.”

lifestyle advice, their medical condition and disease management. The results of the programme were very promising with an initial evaluation showing that 81% of patients reported that they were more likely to take their medicines correctly, as prescribed. The winners of the HSJ Patient Safety Awards will be

announced in July at a ceremony in Manchester. Speaking about the shortlisting, Susanne Lynch, head of medicines management at NHS South Sefton CCG, said: “This scheme was just one part of our innovative, system wide approach to medicines which has allowed us to deliver significant improvements to safety and patient care.

Dave Thornton, assistant clinical director of Pharmacy at Aintree University Hospital, said: “Being shortlisted for this award recognises the importance of the link between hospital and community care when it comes to ensuring medicines are used safely and effectively and the benefits that can be realised from a joint approach.”

WHAT has gone wrong with our children? Or what’s gone wrong with our parents and teachers? Because something has certainly changed - and changed very much for the worse. According to a teachers' union, teachers and their assistants are regularly facing physical attacks from children as young as four. They have to suffer biting, hair pulling and punching. Teaching staff have been forced not to wear anything loose because their pupils have attempted to strangle them. A Lancashire assistant head ended up in hospital after he was head-butted by an annoyed 14year-old member of his class. Now when I was at school either aged four or 14 - anything even approaching this sort of insurrection would not have even entered my head, or that of anyone I knew. But then, from the same horrific report I was quoting from, the NASUWT gave at least the partial answer as to why. The usual 21st Century answer. Why, ‘insufficient funding’ of course! Apparently there is a need to provide special needs assessments for children with a history of violence being placed in mainstream schools without enough support. They need ‘special diagnosis.’ Well, probably a very few do. But, and I'll keep my head down as I suggest this, most of them would respond quite well to an

old fashioned clip round the ear’ole. I know this very idea is complete anathema to most folk these days. But when I was at school, I, and most kids I knew, suffered at one time or several, a ruler across the hand, the slipper - or, heaven forfend, a trip to wait outside the head's office with the prospect of the dreaded cane. Which I never suffered. Not because I was particularly good, but because I had enough sense to realise that being particularly bad resulted in something I had no wish to suffer. Quite apart from that, there was my dad to consider too. I dread to think what would have resulted should a report ever have reached him that I had sworn at a teacher - let alone tried to strangle him or her. A few years ago it was common to hear the mantra that if you hit your child, then he or she would grow to hate you and become a bully him or herself. Rubbish. My dad quite often did give me a clip over my ear. I did receive (usually, though not always deserved) a slipper across

my bum at both primary and secondary school. And I grew up not only to love my dad - he became my best friend once I had grown up - but I respected my teachers. I also learned that if you did something sufficiently bad, something horrible was likely to result. Importantly though, I didn't resent the punishment - because from my earliest years I had been taught the difference between right and wrong and the need to respect others. And before I go any further, I will tell you who is in fact to blame for our present problems with children and young people generally. It is my generation - the children born shortly after the end of the Second World War. The young people who went in for flower power, free love, Ban the Bomb. Half of us I reckon to try to grow up just like our parents. The other half rebelled. And we were both wrong. We were a generation who could change the ways we lived, because our parents had fought a war at least partly to make a world free from tyranny. I reckon the trouble was that while some of my generation went overboard with the word ‘freedom’, other, like me, stubbornly tried to maintain the status quo. Babies and bathwater come to mind.

Calls for law to protect Hats off to charity police horses and dogs A TEAM of opticians in Crosby and Bootle donned their favourite hats to support Brain Tumour Research. The two teams joined stores nationwide to officially sponsor the charity for Wear a Hat Day. The opticians wanted to raise awareness to show how routine eye tests can detect signs of brain

Report by Tom Martin CALLS have been made for a new law aimed at protecting police dogs and horses from being attacked or killed in the line of duty. Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy has backed a new campaign launched ahead of a Second Reading in the House of Commons of the Service Animals (Offences) Bill, commonly known as ‘Finn’s Law’. The Bill advocates the introduction of a new offence of attacking a service animal, including police dogs, and broadening sentencing powers in situations where a service animal is injured as a result of crime. The campaign for ‘Finn’s Law ’ was launched in the wake of the stabbing of police dog Finn in Hertfordshire in 2016, while he was chasing a suspect. Finn suffered serious wounds to his head and chest while protecting his handler, who was also injured during the incident. Currently people who attack a police animal may be charged under the Criminal Damages Act 1971, which is primarily designed to deal with the destruction or dam-

tumours. Sara Taylor, store director at both of the local stores, said: “Many people are unaware that eye tests are not only critical for your eyes, but your wider health too. A routine test allows opticians to detect serious issues that can be both sight and, in some cases, life threatening – including brain tumours.”

age of property, or under section 4 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006, which makes it a criminal offence to subject an animal to unnecessary suffering. However, the maximum punishment under that legislation is six months in prison. The Commissioner has spoken out to highlight the inadequacy of existing legislation and has added her voice to calls for ‘Finn’s Law’ to be enshrined in law. More than 127,000 people have already signed a petition

urging for UK Police Dogs and Horses to be given protection that reflects their status. She said: “Existing legislation simply does not provide sufficient protection for our hard-working police dogs and horses, who perform a vital role in many aspects of modern day policing from community engagement and drug detection to the policing of public order incidents and during searches for missing people. “We expect police dogs and horses to go into potentially

risky and dangerous situations every day to support their handlers and keep the public safe. “Finn’s Law argues that police animals deserve better protection than property and I wholeheartedly support that argument. “Police dogs and horses are not merely police property – they are sentient beings who bravely and loyally serve the public. “It is only right that they get the recognition and protection that they undeniably deserve.”

Epstein’s Romeo and Juliet was ‘to die for’ By Danielle Thompson THIS new production of Romeo and Juliet was to die for! Daniel Taylor Productions are holding alternating matinee and evening performances of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (R&J) and A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream (AMND) at The Epstein Theatre in Liverpool until Saturday, April 21. Last week, Champion reporter Danielle Thompson attended the adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, which has been quirkily re-imagined in 1880s strife torn Protestant and Catholic Liverpool, exploring the destructive impact of religious sectarianism close to home. The star-crossed lovers are caught between their feuding noble families, the Catholic Montagues and Protestant Capulets, resulting in tragic consequences. Passionate young love and the destructive impact of divided communities are prominent themes in this fresh adaptation of what is widely regarded as the greatest love story of all time. Danielle gave her verdict on the production, which she gave 10/10. I haven’t seen Romeo and Juliet on the stage for many years and my lasting recollec-

tions of it are from Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film, which swapped Verona for a postmodern city, Verona Beach, but kept the language intact – which is, of course, the best bit. So I was thrilled to see that the stage production at the Epstein had not only kept all of the Bard’s wonderful language but also allowed their actors to let a bit of their own Scouse accents through, which made it feel not only more approachable and familiar but also gave the audience the feeling that they were listening to a real conversation, rather than stiff lines learnt by rote. The actors also ad-libbed with a few cheeky gestures and explicit body language to emphasise the bawdier lines, which was hilarious. The production made fantastic use of the whole venue to surprise, thrill and make the audience feel included and right at the heart of the action. This was shown from the opening scene starting with the choirboy who opened the play walking down the aisle to the stage with the main beam highlighting him, to Mercutio and the Montagues walking along the floor and leaning on the front of the stage as if it were a wall on the way to/from the Capulets’ party.

Juliet begs her mother to help her put back her wedding to Paris

Other examples included: Faye Griffiths’ Juliet leaning out from the balcony at the back of the Epstein as her balcony at the Capulet home and Friar Laurence handing out flowers to members of the ‘congregation’ (us!) on the aisles on his way to the stage. These scenes allowed the play to take over the whole area and made the audience, in their own way, feel part of it. The heavy-hitting scenes were played out realistically and caused the audience to really feel the strongest of emotions. Examples of these moments included: the heartbreak caused by Mercutio’s unfair

death; the devastated Romeo’s fury at the stars; Juliet’s emotionally strungout state as she rebounds between devastation at the death of her cousin; the heady love, disillusion and confusion Juliet feels over Romeo and if she will see him again; Juliet’s fear at the hands of her violent, controlling father; and the black-and-white choice Juliet, who is barely-inher-teens, faces: marry someone you hardly know, or beg on the streets, disowned. Featuring fantastic acting, this fully-immersive production is a must-see for die-hard Bard fans, complete newbies and everyone in between.

Lennon’s Banjo to make world premiere in city NEW stage comedy Lennon’s Banjo makes its world stage premiere in Liverpool – and rehearsals are well underway for curtain up at the Epstein Theatre on Tuesday, April 24 The all-star cast have been locked away in rehearsals as they prepare for the show. Excitement is mounting and the countdown is now on until audiences take their seats for this hotly anticipated comedy which tells the fascinating story of John Lennon’s missing banjo which is now worth millions to whoever finds it. Lennon’s Banjo runs at the Epstein Theatre from Tuesday, April 24, continuing through to Saturday, May 5. The eight-strong line-up took a break from their busy rehearsal schedule for some real Liverpool fun and frolics aboard the worldfamous Magical Mystery Tour bus, taking in the sights and sounds of the city. Cast members Eric Potts, Mark Moraghan, Jake Abraham, Lynn Francis, Danny O’Brien, Stephanie Dooley, Alan Stocks, and Roy Carruthers were joined by The Beatles original drummer Pete Best to officially launch the show. Pete Best will make his stage acting debut when he plays himself during three special performances during the two-week run. Pete’s shows are the 2.30pm matinee and 7.30pm performance on Wednesday, April 25, and the 7.30pm show on Saturday, May 5. Alan Stocks will portray Pete Best in all other performances. The evening performance on April 25 is sold out. Pete Best commented: “Lennon’s Banjo is an extremely exciting project to be part of, and I’m thrilled to join such a fantastic cast. The

story is fascinating, a real mix of fact and fiction with lots of laughs along the way, so I just know that audiences will fully immerse themselves in the show.” Mark Moraghan said: “Audiences can expect a history lesson, a lot of comedy and a different take on other Beatles stories that have been told. This show is very original. “I like performing in Liverpool as the audiences are always up for a good time and they like to be entertained.” Lennon’s Banjo is set in present day Liverpool. The quest is on to find the holy grail of pop memorabilia – the missing banjo on which John Lennon was first taught to play music by his mother Julia Lennon, who first introduced the youngster to rock and roll. 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. When Beatles tour guide Barry Seddon (Eric Potts) finds a letter written by John Lennon, he unearths a clue to solving the greatest mystery in pop history – the whereabouts of Lennon’s first musical instrument which has been missing for 60 years. But Barry’s loose tongue alerts Texan dealer Travis Lawson (Danny O’Brien) to the priceless relic. In an attempt to get his hands on the letter and the clues, he persuades his wife Cheryl (Stephanie Dooley) to befriend the hapless tour guide and win his affections. The race to find Lennon’s Banjo is on! Lennon’s Banjo is based on the 2012 novel Julia’s Banjo written by Rob Fennah and Helen A Jones.

Surreal evening of comedy JOIN Bill Bailey for a surreal evening of comedy, music and fun, when he plays Southport Theatre on Friday 27 and Saturday, April 28 at 8pm. Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of his 20 years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tan-

gents and trademark intelligence, Bill Bailey tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness. Plus, he fashions a symphony from a ringtone, tells the real story of Old McDonald, and re-imagines the Stars and Stripes. Bill Bailey is a comedian, musician, writer, author, director, and presenter.

DEAR SACRED HEART OF JESUS

In the past I have asked for many favours. This time I ask for one special favour. (mention it) Take it dear heart of Jesus and place it within your own broken heart where your Father sees it. Then, in his merciful eyes, it will become your favour, not mine. Amen. Say this prayer for three days, promise publication and your favour will be granted. Never to be failed.

S.K

HOLY SPIRIT You, who make me see everything and show me the way to reach my ideals. You, who gave the Divine Gift to forgive and forget all that is done to me. I, in this short dialogue, want to thank You for everything and affirm once more that I never want to be separated from You no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with You and my loved ones in their perpetual glory. To that end, and submitting to God’s Holy Will, I ask You (mention your request). This prayer must be said for three consecutive days. After the third day the request will be granted no matter how difficult it may be. Promise to publish the entire dialogue as a condition of having your request granted.

Pininfarina turned the Peugeot 406 into a truly stunning coupe

www.fairwayford.co.uk

www.heatonsoformskirk.co.uk RAILWAY APPROACH, ORMSKIRK L39 2DD

01695 572029

A PAL of mine is currently perusing the classifieds for a Peugeot 406 Coupé. Hopefully, by the time you read this, he’ll be the proud owner of one of these gorgeous Gallic two-doors. Apparently Ford’s Cougar, Vauxhall’s Calibra, the Mercedes-Benz CLK and Volvo’s C70, which all convey four adults with a reasonable amount of shove in the same sort of two-door package, didn’t even make it onto the shopping list, because there’s one thing that even today sets a 406 Coupé apart. It’s the same thing that makes you lust after a Ferrari 458 Italia and why the Alfa Romeo 164 was always such a head-turner. It’s also what makes my MGB GT so well proportioned. It is – and petrolhead bonus points if you’ve already guessed it – having Italian design house Pininfarina sprinkle its magic on the cosmetics. Think of it as a sort of automotive Armani, turning the humdrum into handsome and making things of downright desirability when given a free hand. It’s even had a hand in building cars, including Ford’s StreetKa, but thanks to a tie-up with an Indian conglomerate it now wants to be a carmaker in its own right. The business side of it makes sense. Mahindra is a big player in motoring but in the UK it’s best known for its dreadful Jeep knock-offs – it has the money to take part in the increasingly lucrative market here in Europe for luxury offerings, but not the street cred. Citroen, for instance, has decided to take on BMW and Mercedes by creating its DS sub-brand, whereas Chinese conglomerate Geely have gone for the Blue Peter ‘Here’s one we made earlier ’ approach by snapping up Volvo and Lotus. But launching a brand with a name already associated with Ferrari’s better-looking offerings is bordering on genius. All it has to do now is the opposite of what most glitzy product launches manage. Make sure it has the style to match the substance. Automobili Pininfarina hasn’t put out any pictures of what its new car looks like yet but if it’s anything other than jaw-droppingly amazing I’ll be disappointed. This is the name that not only turned the repmobile Peugeot 406 into one of the best-looking cars of the Nineties, but it’s also behind the Ferrari Daytona, Testarossa and F355, the Lancia Montecarlo, the Fiat Dino, the Alfa Romeo GTV and the Jaguar XJ6 Series III. With a blank slate and Mahindra’s money behind it, Pininfarina’s first production car really ought to be so pretty that you leave it your phone number rather than drive it. If it pulls that off than it might just pull you away from the pile of brochures you have for the C-Class, 3-Series and A4. Or you could save yourself about 20 grand and get the same sort of visual sparkle from a 406 Coupé.

Remyca win keeps title hopes alive St Helens Town 1 Litherland Remyca 4 LITHERLAND Remyca maintained their terrific run of form with a comfortable away win to keep alive their title challenge. The home side took the lead after only four minutes but Remyca hit back in the tenth minute with an equaliser through Colin McDonald.

The goalscorer doubled his tally with another strike to make it 2-1 before half time. After the break it became 3-1 with a goal from Hamilton, before Colin Quirk wrapped up all three points with a penalty two minutes from full time. The win means Remyca stay two points behind league leaders Silsden.

Reds pay for missed penalty Runcorn Town 1 AFC Liverpool 0 AFC Liverpool were made to pay for a missed penalty as they succumbed to a narrow defeat. The results means the Reds remain in the bottom four of the table and two points off local rivals Burscough.

Here to help

The home side opened the scoring on 21 minutes when Mark Reed finished well following a free kick. The Reds pressed for an equaliser and had a golden opportunity to do so on 72 minutes, but Callum Schorah's strike came back off the post and Runcorn were able to clear their lines.

The Champion ● Wednesday 18 April 2018

Maghull hope Aussie all-rounder can boost their promotion bid WEATHER permitting the 2018 Liverpool & District Cricket Competition should get underway this weekend, with many of our local clubs hopefully challenging for honours come mid September. Maghull start their Division Two campaign with ahome match against Sutton on Saturday. Maghull skipper Paul Walters almost led his side to promotion last season and will be hoping to go one better this time round. However he’s lost the services of Liam Crilly who’s joined Irby and Zimbabwean paceman William Mashinge who’s joined Leamington. After a winter down under Macauley Lawrenson has opted to remain in Melbourne for the foreseeable future, but the

club have signed Australian all rounder Josh Mahoney from Laharum CC in Western Victoria and hope that Walters, Jon Ring, Greg Gillespie, Anthony Molloy and Cameron Lawrenson can help form the backbone of another promotion push. Burscough have signed Australian Jonathon Curtis who has recently had spells at both Fleetwood Hesketh and Ormskirk, whilst last season’s overseas player Ben Van Niekerk has not been retained. On a sad note skipper Jon Stones has lost two top players in Rob Glaysher and Michael Bimpson, opening bowler Glaysher has moved down south and Bimpson has retired and hung up his gloves after a quality career behind the stumps and numerous runs with the bat,

keeping duties have been passed on to the experienced Alan Murray. The delayed 2017 Ray Digman Trophy semi final between Bottle and Ormskirk fell victim of the weather last Saturday, so a bowl out took place with Bootle winning 3-0 thanks to skipper Craig Prince (2) and Scott Butterworth (1), they will now host Northern in the final at Wadham Road on Sunday, April 29, at 1pm. This weekend’s other local LDCC fixtures (1pm start): Leigh v Formby, Northern v New Brighton, Ormskirk v Colwyn Bay, Rainford v Bootle, Ainsdale v Liverpool, Burscough v Birkenhead Park, Fleetwood Hesketh v Sefton Park, Wigan v Southport & Birkdale, Hightown St Mary’s v Northop Hall, and Spring View v Southport Trinity.

MARINE recorded back to back away wins in the league as they came out on top in a five goal thriller. Tommy Lawson’s men were full value for this win, scoring twice with ten men after Tom Field had been sent off early in the second half and having chances to extend their 3-1 lead before the hosts reduced the arrears in injury time. Marine, without goalkeeper Martin Fearon on his stag party and striker Josh Amis due to illness, started the game brightly but fell behind with just six minutes on the clock, a free kick from the right being met by Kyle Bryant to glance a header inside Germano Mendes' right hand post. The Mariners started to take more control of proceedings as the half wore on and were denied an equaliser by a fine save from Elliott Taylor, the goalkeeper parrying Dom Reid’s powerful volley from 15 yards. It was a short lived reprieve though as Marine equalised straight from the resultant corner, the ball being half cleared as far as Danny Mitchley to shoot, his volley heading for the top corner before taking a

touch off Liam Tongue on its way into the net. The second half saw unsavoury scenes just before the hour, Alex Howes’ late challenge on Peter Wylie sparking an angry confrontation between them quickly followed by players from both sides pushing and shoving. Field was shown a straight red card for throwing a ball in the direction of the home bench with Wylie and Howes also cautioned, the latter perhaps fortunate to remain on the pitch for the initial foul.

The incident seemed to galvanise the Mariners who proceeded with a text book demonstration of how to play with ten men, defending determinedly and breaking in numbers and at pace when the opportunity arose. The Crosby club took the lead on 63 minutes, Mitchley looking like he was going to lob the keeper but instead picking out his team mate at the far post, Tongue lashing the ball home from close range to notch his eighth goal of the season. Seven minutes later it was 3-1, Mendes extending his reach to its full extent to punch clear at the very edge of his penalty area and a lightning fast break from Mitchley playing in Michael Brewster, the popular midfielder rounding the last defender and goalkeeper before knocking the ball in to the empty net. The Ravens had plenty of possession as they tried to stretch play, but a well organised Marine defence kept them at bay quite comfortably at the expense of a number of corners, all of which came to nought. Coalville reduced the arrears deep in to injury time, Howes curling a nice finish in to the top corner from 25 yards but Marine saw out time to take all three points.
