THOUSANDS FLOCK TO MOTORFEST Organisers hail ‘fantastic success’ Henry James

ORGANISERS of Ormskirk’s third annual MotorFest have hailed it a ‘fantastic success’ with an estimated 25,000 visitors believed to have flocked to the town for the event on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 25. More than 250 cars and motorcycles were on show from all eras of motoring in static displays on Moor Street, Aughton Street, and in Coronation Park, some of which later took part in parade laps around Ormskirk town centre. The 2003 Le Mans–winning Bentley Speed 8 was one of the most popular attractions on the day. Huge crowds gathered round to take a close look at this vehicle. Stock car drivers and enthusiasts marked the 60th anniversary of stock car racing coming to the UK with a display charting the development of the sport in this country. Vehicles of current racers, Neil Holcroft and Aaron Cozens, who races under his grandfather Alf Cozens’ number 76, were among those on display, along with the oldest original stock car in Great Britain. This is a Formula 2 stock car looked after by George

Rimmer of the Heritage Stock Car Association. Successful rally drivers, Gary Wright, David and Ryan Burns, Becky Kirvan and Tim Rodgers, also had their vehicles on display and several of them took part in the Ormskirk MotorFest Autosolo Challenge. This added a competitive element to MotorFest, as drivers tested their skills over a short and low–speed course. The Autosolo Challenge was won by Ryan Burns, with Daniel Brady coming a close second. The stock and rally cars were among the many vehicles that took part in parade laps around the town centre which thrilled the watching crowds. Ormskirk’s own motorcycle legend, 79–year–old Derek Rumble, was also in the parade laps on a replica of the 1964 Rumble/BSA bike he built himself to compete on for a number of years. Derek was a successful sidecar driver and manufacturer on the international circuit. He won more than 30 trophies at the Isle of Man TT alone as a racer. He also won the Isle of Man TT’s manufacturer’s award on two occasions as well as championships in Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

A WOMAN from Lydiate has managed to raise a massive £7,000 for a cancer charity after completing the London Bridge to Bridge swim in memory of her mother who passed away earlier this year. Michelle Darracott took part in the 14–kilometre swim from Henley to Marlow to honour her late mother who died of cancer of unknown primary (CUP) in May. And thanks to an extensive training regime over the last couple of months, she was able to complete the 14–kilometre course in an impressive five hours. She said: “I was nervous on the day of the event as I’ve never done anywhere near this distance in open water before. I wondered whether I had done enough training. “Apparently many ‘hit the wall’ at the 10k mark and at that point quite a few people gave up, but after a hot chocolate and a cuddle from my family I was ready to go back in. “I must admit the fact that I could see my family and husband Dave cheering me on for almost the entire 14k really lifted my spirits and everybody else’s.” Around 350 swimmers took part in the event with the first swimmer home finishing in three hours in waters that reach temperatures of 20 degrees. Since Michelle’s mother, Linda Williams, passed away, the family have been raising funds for and awareness of CUP. They are delighted with the amount Michelle has raised so far for the Jo’s Friends charity which aims to raise awareness of CUP and supports research projects. CUP means that the cancer has spread but the primary source is unknown. In Michelle’s mother’s case it was detected too late for treatment. Michelle’s dad, Gordon Williams, who went along to provide support on the day, said: “I have to admit I had concerns that Michelle wouldn’t be

Cricket club book their place in televised final Dramatic one–run victory clinches ‘biggest day in club’s history’ and a chance to shine in front of Sky cameras By Holly Rummens

Just one of the 250–plus exhibits that drew admiring glances from the estimated 25,000 visitors to the third Ormskirk MotorFest Code1061650

Third MotorFest attracts 25,000 visitors to town

Grateful Mike Ashcroft, Aintree Circuit Club chairman, said: “I am so pleased we were able to bring such a marvellous event to the streets of Ormskirk once again. “There were some fantastic vehicles on display which visitors really enjoyed looking around. “Everyone involved in the MotorFest said they were really pleased with the event.

“We are very grateful to West Lancashire Borough Council and the police for their support, and also to our sponsors. “We are also grateful to all the drivers and riders who came from far and wide to the event to display their cars and motorcycles.” Winner of the Mayor’s Choice Award for best car was a 1950 Aston Martin Lagonda 2.6 Saloon, owned by David Foster, and the Mayor’s Choice Award for best motorcycle was the replica of the 500cc Honda RC181 that motorbike racing legend Mike Hailwood rode to win the 1967 Isle of Man TT. This is owned by Ken Gilbert. Deputy Mayor of West Lancs, Councillor Doreen Stephenson, presented awards to the winners.

Massive Club chairman, Tim Dickinson, told the Champion: “At the moment we are all really tense but excited to be reaching the regional championships. “All the players are ecstatic and are really looking forward to playing at The Oval as it is such a massive opportunity for them. “We have never got this far in the competition before and after Northern Cricket Club reached the final last year it’s great to see another team from the North West in the finals. “Hopefully this excitement and hype will encourage more youngsters to play cricket.

Councillor Martin Forshaw, West Lancs Council’s portfolio holder for planning and development, said: “The Ormskirk MotorFest was a fantastic success once again. “The number of people who enjoyed this wonderful free celebration of motoring was well up on last year, which proves the MotorFest continues to be increasingly popular. “Having the final vintage fair of the summer in Ormskirk at the same time helped to make it a wonderful day out for all the family. “With so many people in town I am sure the event will have been a great boost for local businesses.” The Ormskirk MotorFest was once again organised

by Aintree Circuit Club and supported by West Lancs Borough Council. Other impressive cars on display included a ‘squadron’ of 1950s bubble cars, competition vehicles and a fantastic display of vintage cars and motorcycles.

PLAYERS and officials of Ormskirk Cricket Club are celebrating after booking their place in the National Finals of the ECB National Club T20 competition at the weekend. Victory over Hyde in the regional final at Brook Lane on Sunday means Ormskirk will be heading down to the Kia Oval in Surrey on Friday, September 13 to take their place alongside three other regional winners in the finals which will be televised live on Sky Sports. The achievement crowns a memorable few weeks for the club, currently riding high in second place in the Premier Division of the Liverpool & District Competition. Last week Ormskirk’s Simon Kerrigan was called up to represent England in the fifth and final Ashes Test against Australia, also at the Kia Oval. And although the Lancashire left–arm spinner didn’t enjoy the most auspicious of international debuts, club officials are hopeful that Friday the 13th won’t prove to be an unlucky omen for them when they travel down to the London venue for what is described as “the biggest day in the club’s history.”

“We have 11 key players and together we make a strong team so I am confident we can win this. “I am sure this is the biggest game in the club’s history and will be the highlight of the year for the cricket team and the town if we manage to win.” In Sunday’s regional final, meanwhile, Ormskirk batted first with skipper Ian Robinson top–scoring with 46 out of a total of 146–7. In reply Hyde looked to be in command as they raced to 125–2 with four overs to go. Then at the start of the last over the visitors needed 8 runs to win. However, Robinson, leading from the front, bowled a dramatic last over that included a wicket and a no–ball, but ended with the home side triumphing by a single run.

Martin Mere welcomes new addition Report by

Louisa Austin

MARTIN Martin has welcomed a new addition after a Chilean flamingo chick successfully hatched for the first time in six years at the Burscough wildfowl and wetlands trust centre. The chick, now just a week old, is doing well and starting to come off the nest site. One other chick has hatched in the last couple of days and the centre is expecting another three to hatch. Usually, the Chilean flamingos lay their eggs much later in the season. Being born late can cause complications as with the shortening day lengths, cold weather and lack of sunlight, the chicks often fail to grow properly and often don’t survive.

But the hot weather we have been experiencing ensured that the flamingos laid their eggs early and staff at the centre are confident that they will successfully rear them this year. Centre manager, Nick Brooks, said: “Generally when the first egg is laid the rest of the flock takes note and gets busy laying so it is really good news and means we have a number of chicks all around the same age to form a crèche. “With these nice long days, the chicks will have lots of time to get big strong and healthy before the winter sets in. “We are pleased the weather has spurred them on to lay so early and despite a cold spring, it has turned into a very good breeding season.” The flamingo chicks are usually grey or white in colouring when small and it takes approximately two to three years to obtain full pink plumage.

TRIBUTES have been paid following the death of a well–known former businessman from Aughton. Roy Adams, who died last Thursday at the age of 80, was the former owner of the Kingsway Club in Southport and was also the last proprietor of the original Cavern club in Liverpool, where the Beatles played at the beginning of the 1960s. He started his career in nightclubs as a doorman and was also a former champion bodybuilder. Roy said he saved The Rolling Stones from a beating in Liverpool in his early years. In the 1960s Roy opened his first Southport club. He and Tommy Barton bought the Beach Club on Ainsdale Promenade and renovated the whole building. They opened Toad Hall, a Tudor–style country club in 1967. In 1970, he sold the club and bought Shorrocks Hill in Formby from Eric Armitage, the butcher. The building had been Sir Richard Formby’s home. At the premises they used to serve food from around the world. He had

club’s name to the Astoria. Roy had to retire after breaking his neck in a riding accident in 1997 and his sons carried on the business activities. In 2003 he wrote a book about his life in show business called Hard Nights. He leaves behind his partner of more than 25 years, Sheilagh, daughter, Diane, a champion showjumper, and sons Rowland, Tony and Paul, who owns the Vincent hotel. Paying tribute to Roy Adams, the Champion’s Ron Ellis commented: “I first met Roy in the 1960s in the Merseybeat days when I was managing beat groups and Roy had the Chequers Club in Liverpool. “In 1989 Roy spearheaded the return to the stage of 60s legend, P. J. Proby, launching his new CD at the Kingsway. “Always a gentleman, Roy was a larger–than–life personality who had a generous nature and he will be missed by many people.” • Roy’s funeral will be tomorrow (Thursday) at 10am at St Anne’s Church, Prescott Road, Ormskirk.

Pupils celebrate GCSE success Students’ hard work pays off with bumper haul of A* – C grades By Henry James STUDENTS throughout Ormskirk are celebrating following the release of this year’s GCSE results. Although nationally the number of pupils achieving A*–C grades fell for the second year in a row, colleges and schools in the town recorded strong pass rates. At St Bede’s Catholic High School, 71% of pupils gained five or more A*–C grades, including English and Maths, which represents the school’s best–ever results. Chris Horrocks, headteacher, said: “Our pupils deserve much credit for their hard work and commitment to their studies. “They are a credit to their families, who, along with staff and governors, have supported them magnificently during their time at high school. “We wish them all every success as they embark now on the next chapter of their lives.” At Burscough Priory, 91% attained five GCSEs grade A*–C, an increase from 2012 of 12%. Students at the school achieved a 13% increase in the number achieving 5 A*–C, including English and Maths with 80% in 2013 as compared to 67% in 2012. There has also been an increase in the number of students attaining the highest grades, A* or A. In the English and Technology departments 37% of students have achieved grades A* or A. Catherine Edens, headteacher, commented: “These results are a phenomenal achievement for the hard work of both our students and staff. “They have consistently given 100% in the face of national uncertainty and changing

grade boundaries. “Our students are outstanding, our staff are outstanding. “I would also like to thank the governors and our LEA advisor, Alison Hartley, for the right balance of challenge and support in assisting us in our continuous drive to deliver the very best outcomes for our students and local community. “At Priory we are a strong learning community and we are exceptionally proud of the success of our students and the continued support of our parents.” At Ormskirk School, nearly 70% of the students gained five higher grades, including English and Maths. Headteacher, John Doyle, commented: “While our results were slightly down on those in 2012, they are still the second best in our history with nearly 70% of the students gaining five higher grades, including English and Maths. “All speculation about results nationally is that they may well decline this year because of changes in entry patterns and in the way that standards are made comparable year on year, known as ”comparable outcomes“, so against that background our young people have performed strongly. “Set alongside our very positive Ofsted report from last November, these results show the school continues to progress. The slight decline in our results this year makes us determined to reverse that in 2014. “I congratulate and thank everybody involved in these achievements, especially students who have gained large numbers of top grades and those who have overcome considerable odds in their achievements.”

Ollie Cowan A TOP gamer has moved one step closer to his racing dream after becoming one of the fastest Gran Turismo players in the UK. Twenty three year old Martin Hefferon from Hesketh Bank was one of six of the UK’s fastest and most talented PlayStation racers at the recent Nissan PlayStation GT Academy 2013 UK National Final at Silverstone. All six have kept alive their dreams of being trained to become a real life Nissan racing driver, as they look to win the highly acclaimed virtual–to– reality European competition. Stakes are high with the overall prize of a full season racing in a Nissan GT–R Nismo GT3 race car. Now in its fifth year, over 765,000 gamers from around Europe entered the 2013 competition, with the UK leading the way by drawing in over 148,000 entries via the online Gran Turismo 6 qualifying round. Players competed over two grueling days of virtual racing. At the end of the second day, Martin was announced as one of the the winners and will return to Silverstone in September.

Now he’s on course to take part in dream drive event Martin will go head–to–head in a battle where only one of the six UK representatives will progress to the European Final. Martin told The Champion: “It’s amazing to get through to Race Camp, I nearly cried as soon as my name was called so I was trying to hold that in. “I’ve worked so hard for this and it’s my third time at National Finals, so third time lucky! I think I must’ve absolutely nailed my driving in the Nissan JukeNismo. “I knew it was going to be very close, and there was only a point and a half between fourth and seventh which is crazy. Now I’ve got through, I just need to keep working at it and keep going.” The overall European winner of GT Academy 2013 will undertake a comprehensive Driver Development Programme to prepare them for the ultimate prize of a full season’s racing in a 500+ horsepower Nissan GT–R Nismo GT3 race car.

By Court Reporter A SINGLE dad has lost his licence and his job after being caught drinkâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;driving. Ian Hegarty, 33, of Swan Close, Ormskirk was stopped by police at 10.25pm on Radnor Drive, Southport, on June 16 because of faulty lights and â&#x20AC;&#x153;as he spoke they detected a strong smell of alcohol.â&#x20AC;? Andrew Page prosecuting at Sefton Magistrates, where Hegarty pleaded guilty to drinkâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;driving, said police were told: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will be honest, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had twoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;andâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;aâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;half pints.â&#x20AC;? Following his arrest, tests revealed there was not less than 96mg of alcohol in 100ml blood. The legal limit is 80mg/100ml. Mr Jones, speaking on his behalf, pointed out that it was not the manner of Hegartyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driving that caused him to be stopped by police, but the lights on the car. Telling the court that Hegarty had no previous convictions, he said that he had already lost his job. Being a single parent with two children, he said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will have a real impact on him.â&#x20AC;? Disqualifying Hegarty for the minimum period of 12 months, District Judge Chris Johnson gave him the option to reduce that by a quarter by undertaking a drinkâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;driving awareness course. Hegarty was also fined ÂŁ150 with costs of ÂŁ85 and a victim surcharge of ÂŁ20.

War of words over school recycling waste collection Borough council refutes MP’s claim that it refuses to help primary’s efforts Report by

Danielle Thompson

A WAR of words has broken out over claims that the borough council is refusing to collect recycling from a local primary school. West Lancs MP Rosie Cooper accused West Lancs Council of refusing to collect the recyclable waste, after being contacted by Lordsgate Primary School in Burscough. Members of the school’s eco council wrote to the MP asking for help in getting the council to support their recycling efforts. But the council has refuted the claim that it refused to collect the waste. Rosie Cooper said: “As the school children pointed out, young people are constantly told of the importance of recycling and protecting the environment. “The school has bought recycling bins and collect the recycling every Friday from classrooms and school grounds. “All the pupils want is for their local council to support their efforts and help with collection. “I believe it’s about time the council thought again about its position on this issue. They need to think about the message they are sending to local children. Conscientious “I’m sure, thanks to this project in school, many children are now pushing their families to be more conscientious in recycling waste at home. “These children are looking to the borough council to change its policy so in their words they ‘can be encouraged to recycle more and provide a better future for us all’.” However, spokesman for West Lancashire Borough Council said: “It is not true to say that the council refuses to collect recyclable waste from schools. “We provide a service to collect waste – including recyclable material – from a number of schools in the borough. “Other schools have contracts with private companies to collect waste. “The council received correspondence from Lordsgate Primary School on this very issue on July 23 this year and staff have

MP Rosie Cooper

Code NA

responded by offering our services to come to the school and discuss the matter and explore how we may be able to assist. “This information was also passed on to the MP following correspondence received by the council on July 24 from the MP’s office. “The council’s response to the MP made reference to our offer to meet with the schoolchildren and the head teacher and that we would keep the MP informed of any progress after the meeting. “Schools’ recycling collections are a matter that is being discussed with Lancashire County Council who are the waste disposal authority and also the education authority. It is something that all local authorities would like to be in a position to support.”

invited to Nicolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painful bite Public hospital trust AGM 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;old dislocates her jaw tackling triple burger!

By Danielle Thompson

By Danielle Thompson WHEN Nicola Peate decided to tuck into a triple decker burger while on a night out with work pals she bit off more than she could chew â&#x20AC;&#x201C; literally! For the 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;old social media manager from Ormskirk ended up in a hospital emergency department after dislocating her jaw while trying to munch on the monster meal. Nicola was visiting Almost Famous, a burgers and booze restaurant in Liverpool, with work colleages and her fiance, Neil when the dining disaster struck. Opting for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Kids in America Burgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a tripleâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;patty compete with cheese, pretzels and candied bacon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nicola first of all tried to sink her teeth into it only to get a pain in her jaw. She then tried to eat it using a knife and fork but was unable to open her mouth fully. At the time her pals just laughed off the incident and Nicola and Neil made their way home oblivious to the seriousness of the injury. But when Nicola â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who suffers from Ehlersâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Danlos syndrome (EDS) which means she has hyperâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;flexible joints that are unstable and prone to dislocation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; arrived at work the next day the pain had become unbearable and she went to the Royal Liverpool Hospital where emergency department staff treated her for a dislocated jaw. She said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, at the time, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d dislocated it. You

Nicola Peate donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect that to happen eating a burger! â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like I had cramp in my tongue, then I started to get an earache and a headache. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next morning I woke up and felt really, really ill. The whole side of my head was hurting. Then it started to feel like it was in my jaw and I knew Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d dislocated it.â&#x20AC;? An xâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;ray confirmed Nicolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fears and a doctor quickly manipulated her jaw back into place. Nicola said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The minute it went back in it was like turning a tap off in my head, all the tension just went.â&#x20AC;? A second xâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;ray assured Nicola and staff that everything was back to normal, so she was discharged but

Code NA warned to stifle yawns and not to open her jaw too wide for a fortnight. Nicola, who is getting married next year, is relieved it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen near to her big day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stick to canapĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;sized burgers at my wedding!â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Almost Famous said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that people joke about quite often, this is definitely the first instance of jaw dislocation as a result of an Almost Famous burger weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever heard of! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to have Nicola back for a burger on us as soon as her jaw is ready for it, although weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend something a bit more manageable.â&#x20AC;?

PROPOSALS by Tory Minister Eric Pickles to change planning rules so that developers must add special wheelie bin storage areas to new builds have been branded as ‘pathetic’ by a councillor in neighbouring Sefton. Lib Dem Councillor Tony Dawson condemned the plans, saying it will not make any difference at all to the blight of wheelie bins crowding busy streets. Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, recently said the sights of wheelie bins and recycling boxes on public highways are a “ghastly gauntlet” and wants planning guidelines to incorporate a rule whereby a specialist wheelie bin storage shelter is factored into all new builds. If passed developers would have to provide enough storage space for various bin types used by local authorities such as West Lancashire and Sefton. “The worst thing about weekly wheelie–bins is them being collected from the street instead of people’s garden gates,” said Councillor Dawson who represents Southport town centre ward. “But the Minister has no plans to affect this in any way. “If Pickles had wanted to do anything about the ugly mess of front garden bins, he needed to have done something years ago and to have done it for all houses, not new ones. “The worst effects of wheelie bins are the

Eric Pickles overfilled Eurobins outside many of the multi–occupancy properties in the streets all around the town centre. Referring to abandoned weekly bin collections up and down the country, Councillor Dawson added: ”Mr Pickles’ proposal does nothing for that. “He is no more tackling ‘bin blight’ than he was successful stopping fortnightly collections.”

LETTERS to the Editor Car park charges are unnecessary and unfair Re: car park issues in Ormskirk, I am disgusted with the whole idea of parking charges. Why is every town council in this country obsessed with squeezing every last penny out of the motorist? I recently attended three events in Lancashire and paid a total of £28 in car parking fees. There is no proportion in the charges compared to the facility of parking offered. When the car park costs more than the event ticket there is something obviously wrong.

Nobody will convince me that the upkeep of a car park warrants a charge of £10 per 4–hour period that I recently experienced at a Lancashire car park. The same car park was approximately the size of a football field holding an estimated 500–plus cars. That’s £5,000 per day, an income of £982,000 just in the summer period alone (6 months). Unless I’m missing something, it seems a lot of money just to maintain and empty the ticket machines and look after an

expanse of tarmac. And this is just one car park in an area that has many more. The total annual income must run into millions of pounds. It would be interesting to see a breakdown on how the money is spent and where the profit goes. I overheard a young couple in the car park comment that they couldn’t decide whether to park their car and enjoy a day out or buy their baby some new shoes and just go home again! A discusting choice to be forced to make.

PICTURE of the week

On holiday recently in Spain I attended a major fiesta. I was marshalled into a vast FREE car park by a policeman and everything at the event was family affordable. Car park charges are unnecessary and unfair and now there’s 24–hour surveillance, the installation of which will be paid for by guess who? A sad state of affairs. N. Higham, Aughton

What we need are affordable homes for young people who grow up here I write regarding the Parrs Lane development homes plan. The only motivator to build on this prime arable land is purely for profit. The only people to benefit from this will be the landowner and the development company. Ormskirk and Aughton are fast becoming areas full of students and elders. We have a plethora of student accommodation in Ormskirk, in the main owned by out–of–town landlords, and a multitude of housing for the elderly. Nowhere do I see the council building affordable housing for our young people who have grown up in this area. In any new development, my understanding is that 10% has to be low–cost housing. The latest development off Wigan Road by Redrow is selling low–cost starter homes with the government scheme at £157,000. I do not know of any first–time buyer who could afford this. If you go on Rightmove today there are over 200 houses for sale in the £250,000 to £600,000 bracket and some have been on the market for quite a while. We do not need any more expensive housing as the ones we have are not selling. Our area is fast changing and to lose our green belt would be devastating for the area and once it’s gone it’s gone. The council should look at all the little pockets of land dotted around Ormskirk and Aughton and start to build the starter homes our young people need. Mary Hobson, Aughton

Call to restore ‘old’ Lancashire Speed limits are pointless if drivers just ignore them I read with interest the article by Danielle Thompson (Champion, August 7) on the speed limit to reduce danger on Crosshall Brow. I am a resident on a road which has had its speed limit reduced to 30mph nearly two years ago. Motorists along that road, including lorries and trucks, take no heed of the 30mph speed limit. Some vehicles drive dangerously making it unsafe for cyclists and residents. No–one has ever been here to monitor the effects of the new speed limit – a complete waste of time! I await with bated breath as to whether this will have any effect on future accidents. Lathom Road resident, Bickerstaffe

It doesn’t matter who you vote for While I agree with most of what Chris Grogan wrote re: saving the NHS (Letters, August 7) I don’t think voting changes that much. It used to when parties were different but these days there is very little difference between Conservative Tories, Liberal Tories and Labour Tories. It doesn’t matter who you vote for because every politician is there to furnish the needs of business in a system that is fundamentally flawed. The goal of private sector business is to maximise profit and in doing so people’s jobs become automated. The only

Write to the Editor at Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

reason you have a job is because it has not yet been automated. One only has to look at large supermarkets to see how self–service checkouts are replacing people. This, however, is where the Tory system eats itself. When people work, they earn money and with that money they buy goods and services, the goods and services other businesses and workers provide. That is how an economy functions. If machines do the work, machines do not buy the things being made and so the system collapses. A competitive, capitalist system then is not good for

business at all. On the other hand, a system that employs people is very good for business because workers will have wages and will buy what is being made. Full employment also creates happy, healthy communities with less crime, drugs, alcohol, stress, suicide and mental illness. We have been voting for a long time now and children still go to bed hungry, so you have to ask yourself whether voting is good for anyone. Chris Carr, Little Digmoor, Skelmersdale

Despite the fact that it is decades since regional reorganisation, the titles Greater Manchester and Merseyside continue to rankle with many who still consider themselves Lancastrians first and foremost. With the benefit of hindsight, would it not have been better to designate the redefined regions as, say, South–West Lancashire, South–East Lancashire and North Lancashire, thus retaining the historical county heritage connection? Yorkshire and Sussex spring to mind as having managed to preserve their county identity during redesignation. ’She’s a lassie from Greater Manchester’ and ‘Merseyside hotpot’ just don’t sound right, do they? When, or if, this recession is over and public finances permit, wouldn’t it be a good historical correction to right the wrong? I’ll warrant it would be a vote–winner and a morale–booster to boot. While we are at it, why not offer a referendum to the good folk of Warrington and Widnes and see if they want to come in from the Cheshire cold? Lancastrian, name & address supplied

Study reveals children not getting enough exercise HALF of all seven–year–olds in the UK are not getting even one hour a day’s exercise, a study has revealed. The report from the Millennium Cohort Study, which has been tracking the

Millennium children, siblings and parents through their early childhood years, found that only just over half of seven–year–old children in the UK achieve current recommended levels of daily

physical exercise; this is significantly lower in girls (38%) than in boys (63%). Greg Small, operations manager for SkillsActive Registers, said: “These shocking results highlight the

urgent need to boost physical activity among children. Parents in Lancashire can help by encouraging early childhood fun activities, thus establishing a life–long pattern of fitness and health.”

AN initiative that provides help and support to young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) is being hailed a success by its organisers. The £3.5million programme is run by Lancashire County Council in all of the county’s 12 districts. It is aimed at young people between the age of 14 and 18, who are NEET or at risk of becoming NEET. For people with disabilities or learning disabilities, the upper age limit is 24. The county council works with other organisations, including further education colleges, work–based learning providers, voluntary and community groups, to support students with the following: • One–to–one mentoring, assessment and information • Advice and guidance sessions in order to identify any problems with learning or work • An individual programme of support and training • Literacy, numeracy and ICT skills that will build competence • Work experience and ‘job sampling’ with interviews and career planning support • Support on personal budgeting, drug and alcohol awareness and healthy living. Since the programme was set up in 2011 with funding from the European Social Fund, 1,652 young people have benefited from the scheme. Of those, 736 students have received an accredited achievement; and 605 have progressed into further education, full–time education, training or employment. Matthew Tomlinson, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “I’d like to congratulate everyone who’s been involved in this very effective initiative – the young people, the providers and staff from the county council’s Young People’s Service. “Ensuring that young people don’t miss out on education or training opportunities is one of the most important things that we, as a county council can do. “The number of students who have gone on into further education, full–time education, training or employment is very impressive. “I’m also impressed by how inclusive the programme has been; 453 of these young people are classed as vulnerable students which is nearly one third of the total who’ve received the support. “It’s extremely important that we’re able to help students with learning difficulties and disabilities, teenage parents, young offenders and looked after children to realise their full potential.”

She explained: “I am in the process of opening a dolls haberdashery in the next few weeks, knowing of Michael’s pastime I asked if he had any photographs showing authentic period dresses that I could show in the shop. “When I saw his full collection I suggested we set up a public display for visitors to come and admire it.” The pair worked together to create the display which includes a host of people, places and subjects from

All’s well for scouts on Uganda water mission Report by

Laugh your socks off this season!

Danielle Thompson

A GROUP of Scouts flew out to build a new well in Africa after fundraising £4,000 for their trip. Ten Explorer Scouts and Leaders from the area made the new well in Bulera in Uganda, to provide clean and safe water for more than 450 people. Water–borne disease is the greatest cause of illness and death in the Mityana district of Uganda and the new well will dramatically increase the health of all the people in Bulera. The completion of the project is particularly impressive as the age range of the Scouts team, including the expedition leaders, is just 16 to 20 years old. The £4,000 budget for the water supply project was completely raised by scouts in South Ribble through a series of fundraising events in just seven months.

Chris Worthington, 19, the team leader, planned and organised the project after he met a Scout leader from Bulera Village at the World Scout Jamboree in 2011 and heard about how the lack of clean water was affecting the health of the people in the village. The project was completed as planned in eight days and with enough money left over to build a small barn for the school’s livestock. The team also spent time teaching in the local school and working at the local health centre where they helped in the pharmacy and assisted in the examination room. Team member, Niall Miller, 17, said: “I am very proud of what the team has achieved with

West Lancashire parkrun will provide a free, timed and professionally–measured 5km run starting at 9am on each Saturday of the year. It will join the fast expanding parkrun ‘family’, which now boasts more than 200 weekly events across the UK and more worldwide. Paul said: “Jason and I both run at the Livepool parkrun but wanted to set up something a bit more local. With the opening of Edge Hill’s new running trail this autumn, now seems like absolutely the right time. “We’re grateful to Edge Hill for supporting the idea and to Liverpool Pembroke and Sefton Athletics Club, who train at Edge Hill, for their help and encouragement. “The informal launch meeting will be about updating people on where we’ve got to so far in raising the funds needed for the equipment and for the ongoing logistical and website support. “It will also focus on the recruitment of

The proposed West Lancs parkrun will be open to runners of all abilities Code NA volunteers to take turns at marshalling and managing the weekly events. “Based on the experience of other parkruns, we’re confident we’ll soon be attracting 100 to 150 runners to each event, of all shapes, sizes and fleetness of foot, making new friends and getting fitter. “The inclusiveness of the event is illustrated by the fact that Jason – a well–oiled running machine who’s run the Paris and Liverpool marathons – has teamed up for this with me, a battered old fatty who can just about stagger 5km if the wind’s behind! “And once this one’s set up, there’s no reason that we can’t set up others in West Lancashire, helping to meet parkrun’s overall aim – that anyone who wants to get involved in fun, friendly physical activity, in a place close to them, has the chance to do so.”

Council leader pays tribute to hardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;working Parbold councillor

Scouts forge Euro links Report by

Henry James

A TEAM of 40 Scouts from throughout Lancashire, including West Lancs, are currently forging new links during a twoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;week tour of South Eastern Europe. Following their arrival in Greece, visiting Athens, Olympia, Sparta and Thessaloniki, they have also taken in Skopje in Macedonia, plus Bela Palanka and Belgrade in Serbia and are due to visit SzĂŠkesfehĂŠrvĂĄr in Hungary which is twinned with Chorley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; home town of some of the party. As well as seeing the sights and learning about the history of each area, they have met local Scouts to form new friendships and take part in some very different scouting activities to those they are used to in the UK. In Hungary they will be helping local Scouts to run the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth Cycling day. Pamela Tompsett from Ormskirk said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been fantastic to see all the group interacting with local scouts in each country we visit. They are really embracing the similarities and differences in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultures.â&#x20AC;? Leaders at West Lancs Scouts have said they have a strong history of providing international opportunities for all members.

Some of the Scouts on their trip to South Eastern Europe These range from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lighterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sightseeing and informational visits through to community projects helping people worse off than themselves and more adventurous expeditions. Currently, West Lancs Scouts are in Canada at the world Scout Moot for

18 to 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;olds; a team of 16 to 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;olds have recently returned from Uganda installing a well to provide clean, safe local water; and others have taken part in a sea kayaking wilderness adventure and a mountaineering expedition in the Otztal Alps.

TRIBUTES have been paid to a hardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;working West Lancs councillor who has died. Barbara Kean, who represented the Conservatives in the Parbold ward, was elected to the borough council in 2010. A resident of Dalton for many years, during her time on the council she served on the corporate and environmental overview and scrutiny committee, licensing and gambling committee, licensing subâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;committee and the planning committee. She also represented the council on Ashurst Tenants and Residents Association. The leader of West Lancs Council, Councillor Ian Grant, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All my councillor colleagues and I were sorry to

learn of the passing of Barbara Kean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barbara was a hardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;working councillor. She had a real interest in the Parbold ward, but also a much wider interest in West Lancashire and the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her interest in travelling was like reading a travel brochure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there were few places in the world that Barbara had not visited or had an interest in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was the first to offer support to her councillor colleagues at meetings and was never shy to do additional work if the need arose. Numerous colleagues have said she was a lovely lady, and indeed she was.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Keanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral was held at St Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, Dalton on Monday, August 19.

LET’S get one thing straight, I am not anti–cyclist. I agree that cycling is demonstrably good for you and good for the environment; and I’m all for schemes to not only encourage people to get on their bikes but to stay on them safely. At the same time, it must be acknowledged that quite a few of those on two wheels not only regularly flout traffic laws to the danger of both themselves and those around them, but also do this with a selfish sort of arrogance that, to put it briefly, can get right up the noses of pedestrians and vehicle drivers alike. As a person who walks something like 60 miles a week, I have been known to lose my rag at cyclists unwilling ever to slow down, seemingly totally devoid of good manners and with a seeming total disregard for such things as traffic lights or zebra crossings. And those are the ones who stay on the road rather than use the footpath because it is, I suppose, less dangerous to run into me than a juggernaut and in some instances quicker than riding in the traffic anyway. I particularly dislike having a bike power up behind you, whiz past with no warning whatever and then, sometimes, swear at you because your startled dog

barked at him or her. Only today someone told me that, by law, all cycles are sold with a bell fitted. The first thing many owners do is to rip it off and chuck it as being utterly uncool. But I do think more should be done to get more people on bicycles – safely for everyone. Cyclists should have proper cycle lanes (not those utterly ridiculous ‘lanes’ a couple of yards long and nine inches wide so beloved of local councils on a ‘box–ticking’ exercise). So I applauded the government money made available to local authorities a couple of weeks ago to do just this. However, it does their cause no good at all when an idiot MP called Dr Julian Huppert puts down a motion in the House of Commons which would see motorists automatically blamed for any accident involving a pedal cycle, no matter who was really at fault. Only a few weeks ago we had Eric Pickles wanting motorists to be given

dispensation to break the law by parking on double yellow lines. Now, Lib Dem Dr Huppert thinks all cyclists should simply be above the law altogether. The mind boggles. Apparently he thinks that the default assumption after a crash should be that the larger vehicle is to blame. Now if that also extends to a cyclist automatically being at fault if he or she hits a pedestrian, or a dog, then it might have a smidgen of merit. Bet it doesn’t though. But in all seriousness, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of such a load of dangerous twaddle since Neville Chamberlin boasted of “peace in our time”. I take it the good doctor wants completely to re–write the Highway Code, which currently applies as much to those on self–propelled two wheels as it does to the driver of a tank–transporter Now I would travel in the opposite direction. All cyclists should have to take a written test (like car drivers). And since I agree that they should not have to pass a driving test or pay for a licence, I think that a cyclist convicted of a serious traffic offence (like ignoring a red light or swerving between traffic lanes or on to and off the pavement) should have his or her machine confiscated and crushed.

Park trust plays host to charity THE Lathom Park Trust played host to a party from Toxteth–based charity, the Growing Granby group. Members of the group went along to Lathom Park to uncover the fascinating story of Lord Stanley’s hunting park, search out the changing boundaries and visit a real archaeological dig where true history is being discovered. They were given a presentation on the history of Lathom and its deer parks by Paul Kenyon, chairman of Lathom Park Trust. Granby Toxteth Development Trust is an independent charitable organisation which aims to help improve the social and economic well–being of residents and businesses within the area and its surroundings.

Flood Action Groups set up By Henry James THE first local Flood Action Groups have been set up in the borough following last year’s bad weather. For nearly 12 months, residents and landowners were hit severely by flooding which left homes devastated and killed off food crops. In Ormskirk there are local Flood Action Groups protecting Dyers Lane and Halsall Lane. Work is ongoing as well in Burscough and Scarisbrick. The groups are working with the Environment Agency. In addition to this, the borough council is seeking funding to carry out a modelling survey that will be used to support action on flooding solutions. In the immediate aftermath, Rosie Cooper MP visited local farmers, held a flooding summit with local agencies and met with affected residents. In the weeks and months that followed, Ms Cooper said she worked with all groups to address the impact of the flooding and added they worked towards ways to better protect West Lancashire against flooding in the future. The MP said: “It was a very difficult time for everyone affected by the flooding last year. I am encouraged though, that following some

Residents team up with Environment Agency in bid to protect land and property against future threat really tough meetings, we are really seeing progress towards better protecting homeowners and landowners against future flooding. “Getting residents involved in the Flood Action Groups is excellent; they are the first line of defence. Given the right support, advice and equipment, they can make a real difference the next time there is flooding. “We still have a long way to go but at least we are heading in the right direction with better planning and preparation. “I look forward to continuing to work with local residents, farmers and agencies in ensuring West Lancashire is better prepared and protected for future flooding incidents.”

WIN! family ticket to Chagall: Modern Master at Tate Liverpool Tate Liverpool TATE Liverpool is currently displaying paintings and drawings by Marc Chagall – one of the great artists of the last century – in an exhibition called Chagall: Modern Master (on until October 6, 2013). In conjunction with the exhibition, Tate Liverpool is giving Champion Series readers the chance to win one of three family tickets to Chagall: Modern Master, an exhibition catalogue and a copy of children’s book, Melvin: The Luckiest Monkey in the World. Originally from Russia, Marc Chagall lived and worked in Paris alongside other artistic greats including Henri

Matisse and Pablo Picasso. To coincide with Tate Liverpool’s current exhibition Chagall: Modern Master, the whole family is invited to take part in Theatre of Dreams: The World’s a Stage, a Chagall themed family event which looks at how Chagall blurred reality, fantasy and dreams to create haunting, surreal murals, props and costume designs for theatre productions. Here families can take aspects of their own home life and mix it up with the images of their dreams to make a fantastically weird and wonderful model for their own set design. The free drop–in session on from today, (Wednesday, August 28), until Saturday, August 31 between 1.30pm and 4.30pm in Tate Liverpool’s family space, Art Dock on the first floor of the gallery.

Chagall: Modern Master is supported by The Chagall Exhibition Supporters Group. For more information about the exhibition and buying tickets please visit www.tate.org.uk For a chance of winning on of the family tickets, just answer the following question: Where is Marc Chagall from? Answers should be sent to Tate competition, Champion newspapers, Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport, PR9 0QA. The closing date is Wednesday, September 4 at 12pm. The usual Champion competition rules apply. Editor’s decision is final.

Car park camera row rumbles on By Henry James MORE residents have spoken out against a camera–based car park charges enforcement system which has been introduced at an Ormskirk town centre car park. Earlier this month the Champion reported how locals had called the system, introduced by ParkingEye Solutions at Two Saints car park, “intrusive.” Now, we have been contacted by a number of other residents. Harry Mulgrew from Burscough said: “This system was planned by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. It’s crazy and they have thrown common sense out of the window. “This has put us off Ormskirk.” John Shepherd emailed us to comment: “This move by the owners of the Two Saints car park is a despicable act. What are they trying to do, turn Ormskirk into a ghost town? “The fact that the cameras cannot just be put up willy–nilly and would be subject to planning consent indirectly confirms that West Lancashire Borough Council has had an involvement in this thoroughly deplorable plan.” However, a spokesman for ParkingEye Solutions responded: “ParkingEye has been engaged by the owners of the Two Saints Retail Park to manage its car park and help prevent parking abuse, i.e. people not paying and parking inappropriately; meaning genuine customers can’t find parking spaces. “The new ParkingEye system was operational from last week and uses an advanced automated number plate recognition (ANPR) system. Using CCTV cameras similar to those seen on the high street, the new system captures the number plates of all vehicles entering and exiting the car park.

ENTERTAINMENT Show was comedy of the Chance to see old school at its best Othello at Parbold Report by

Alan Stocks and Drew Schofield are The Sunshine Boys

Review by

Ron Ellis

• The Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon • Epstein Theatre, Liverpool IN bygone days, The Epstein (nee Neptune) Theatre was once a music hall so it was the ideal setting for Neil Simon’s masterpiece and the set of a seedy hotel apartment perfectly captured the atmosphere of the lost era of Vaudeville. Alan Stocks and Andrew Schofield starred as Willie Clark and Al Lewis, two old comedians who had done a double act for 43 years, before breaking up acrimoniously 11 years ago and hadn’t spoken since. When CBS decide to reunite them in a Tribute to Vaudeville programme, the old enmity returned as they exchanged acerbic one–liners, showing Jewish–American humour of the time at its best. Alan Stocks gave a masterful performance as the pajama clad Willie, albeit with an accent alternating between New Jersey and New Brighton, whilst it was hard to believe Drew Schofield was the same person who once gave a mean impersonation of Gene Vincent in Be Bop a Lula, so convincing was he as a downtrodden old stager. Director, Ben Fletcher, appeared in person

Code NA

as Willie’s nephew–cum–agent, organizing his uncle’s career and personal life with great aplomb and looking every inch like a young Lew Grade. Helen Carter was enticing as the voluptuous young nurse, who sent Willie into shivering ecstasy every time he tried to peer up her skirt in the famous doctor sketch, but became more rheumatic than pneumatic in her subsequent incarnation as his elderly carer. As T. V. technicians, Michael Ashton and Liam Tobin entertained enthusiastically during the interval. What really made the show was Neil Simon’s sparkling dialogue and the interaction between three actors, each familiar with the other’s work, who had the timing done to perfection. I appeared myself in Formby Theatre Club’s production of this play in 1997 (as the patient in the said doctor sketch). I had seven lines, remembered five and never acted again. By contrast, Alan and Drew can have only enhanced their careers with this performance.

Star Rating: 7 out of 10. Comedy of the old school at its best.

Ladies’ Day to be staged at Civic Hall THE highly regarded Too Friendly Theatre Company’s latest play is the highly popular Ladies’ Day by Amanda Whittington. The story follows four fish factory friends, Jan, Shelley, Linda and Pearl, as they celebrate Pearl’s “not retirement” with a day out at the races. Pearl’s dream is to attend Royal Ascot and when it arrives in York, the girls have no excuse not to go. So, out go the hairnets and overalls and on go the big hats, high shoes and party dresses as the fabulous four go on a romp to the races.

However, drinking, flirting and a quick flutter are not the only things that confront the ladies on their day at the races. As the day progresses, so do revelations of romance, family friction and ardent affairs. Not to mention a host of mischievous men who, at various moments seek to seduce, swindle and suck–up to the ladies. The play runs from Wednesday, September 25 to Saturday, September 28 at Ormskirk Civic Hall. Tickets are £7 and are available from 01704 541306. There is discounts available for Edge Hill students too.

WHAT do a Le M a n s –w i n n i n g Bentley, some thundering stock racers and a brigade of cute old bubble cars have in common? If, like me, you were one of the thousands of petrolheads to pay a visit to Ormskirk last weekend then you’ll already know the answer, because all three – and about 300 other cars and bikes

but it was even more of a joy to see the crowds which had turned out to see them. When Wilf Blundell’s old stock car racer fired into life, the atmosphere tingled with excitement. In an age where I’ve seen people happily pulling in excess of £50 out of their pockets to pay for a car show ticket, there’s something w o n d e r f u l l y egalitarian about thousands of people packing into Ormskirk, free of charge, to see some beautiful cars strutting their stuff on the town’s streets.

love about the Ormskirk MotorFest – that almost all of the cars and bikes are from Sefton, West Lancashire, and the i m m e d i a t e surrounding area. Ormskirk on the August Bank Holiday Sunday has, a result, become an opportunity for thousands of you to find just how much passion there is for motoring in this part of the world. It was a treat to see the flotilla of 1950s bubble cars being followed up the hill towards the parish church by a succession of Jags, Astons and Bentleys,

Sure, there was the very Bentley which stormed to victory at Le Mans a decade ago taking pride of place by the clock tower, but it only took a little extra digging to discover some equally eyeball–grabbing cars with some fantastic stories behind them – take, for instance, the 1948 Allard which just happens to be the exact same car the company showed off at the London Motor Show in Earls Court 65 years ago. A car that’s now cherished by a car lover in Holmeswood, which brings me to the heart of what I

The new Leon ST will help SEAT steal a slice of the small estate market Code NA offers both. “With its sporty look, its surprisingly high utility and its state–of–the–art technology, the Leon ST defines a new standard in the compact estate car class – at a very fair price. “Like the already highly successful Leon and Leon SC, the new ST is the perfect representative of SEAT’s brand values.” The exact prices and specification of the ST – short for Sports Tourer, by the way – will be confirmed when the estate arrives in the UK later this year

SPORT Bad weekend for Skem CC SKELMERSDALE CC lost away at lowly Alder on Saturday. Skem scored 218 all out, due mainly to Hasnain Abbas’s 85.

Lee Berrie (64) and Alan Murray (53) helped Burscough to 194 for 8 declared. In reply, Skem never

looked likely to overtake the score and closed on 11 all out, with Mitchell Clarke top–scoring on 22. The 2nd XI fared better beating St Helens Town by 94 runs, and Alder by 111 runs on Monday after scoring superb 241 for 8 declared, thanks to an opening partnership of 146 from Joe Till (53) and Jordan Maddocks (91).

Robinson helped the visitors to 221–8 dec, with Chris Cunningham taking 3–54. Liam Hurt then captured four consecutive top order Bootle scalps at a personal cost of seven runs, and when Nicky Caunce sent back Glenn Aitken for 10 the home side were virtually dead and buried at 25–5. From that point onwards it was simply a case of how long Ormskirk would take to wrap up the win and, despite an innings of 29 by Jordan Evans spanning 1 hour 20 minutes, Bootle were all out for 103 in the 28th over. Hurt with 4–19 and Caunce with 4–49 were the destroyers in chief. Ormskirk face mid–atbel Maghul on

Saturday. In the Second Division, Burscough recorded a 92 run home win over Birkenhead St Mary’s on Monday, after electing to bat the hosts were bowled out for 198 with Brendan Domigan top scoring with 70. In reply 3–13 from Matthew White and 3–28 from Chris Andrews helped dismiss the visitors for 106 to seal the win.

Keeper’s ‘Cantona volley’ saves a point! A MEMORABLE local derby saw Skelmersdale dominate the first half only to go in at half time two goals down, then pull a goal back after the break and level in added time from what was described by the Marine manager as a ‘Cantona volley’ by goalkeeper Zac Hibbert! The best word to sum it up at the end in the hot weather was “phew.” Skelmersdale dominated the first half and had come close to scoring on four occasions in the first 11 minutes. Matty Hughes had a shot saved by Williams, then Joe Holt was denied a penalty despite what looked a strong push from Marine defender Michael Monaghan. Kevin Leadbetter curled a shot inches wide, Ashley Dunn drew another save out of Williams, before Gary Burnett was kept out by a great tackle from former Skelmersdale player Tony Rendell.

In the 28th minute a Burnett cross was kept away from Hughes and a corner conceded by Marine. Holt’s corner found Dale Wright on the far post and his downward header beat Williams, the keeper stretched out a hand and clawed it back from inside his net. Skelmersdale celebrated a goal, but none was given, referee’s assistant Derek Brannick amazingly didn’t raise his flag eve though it looked to be three feet over the line. Marine countered in the 45th minute, Joe Fowler was fouled by Peter Wylie and a penalty given that was converted by Fowler himself. Then the ball dropped to Dean Astbury in added time and he hit a world class dipping volley into the Skelmersdale net from 30 yards. Marine made two changes for the second–half and soon Hibbert made saves from Jon Goulding and Astbury. In the 55th minute Skelmersdale scored when Hughes cut in from the right but was faced with a brace of defenders, Wright saw this and ran in

screaming for the ball, Hughes found him and the midfielder blasted a shot low into the bottom corner. Hughes then had an effort cleared off the Marine line then Leadbetter went close, but down the other end Hibbert saved well from Astbury. Skelmersdale suffered a massive loss in the 72nd minute when Hughes exited after a challenge from Shaw. Skelmersdale got the upper hand again near the end, Williams saving at his near post from a Wright header off a Holt cross and Shaun Holden saw a shot go just over the crossbar. Seven minutes of added time was announced, much of it because of the injury to Hughes. With three minutes left Skelmersdale won a corner and Hibbert romped forward, but before he got into position the kick was taken, the ball headed out to the edge of the penalty area, from where Hibbert met it three feet off the ground with a thunderous volley that launched Skelmersdale into ecstasy.

SECOND placed Ormskirk kept their Liverpool Competition Premier Division title ambitions alive with a five wicvket victory over leaders Northern on Saturday. The leaders elected to bat and were duly bowled out for 140, with John Wildman top scoring with 34, whilst Martyn Farrell spun his way to 5–37 and Jamie Barnes took 3–47. In reply inform Stephen Cole took 5–45 but it wasn’t enough, as Matty Glayzer’s unbeaten 79 steered his side to 145–5 to wrap up the win.

Kyle Riley put the visitors in front after only four minutes.

SKELMERSDALE United face an away to trip to Droylsden on Saturday followed by a home against an old foe from the past Stafford Rangers on Tuesday. United will probably have to do without his most potent attacker Matty Hughes who picked up an ankle injury in the latter stages at Crosby on Monday, but defenders Rob McIntosh and Tom Hardwick could be available. McIntosh has been unavailable for a month with a knee injury while Hardwick received muscle damage to his stomach in the frustrating 1–1 draw against Ashton United on Saturday.

Skelmersdale missed a penalty in the 24th minute after Matty Hughes’ sppenalty, given for an illegal block by defender John Hardiker on Gary Burnett was parried away by the keeper. It took Hughes only eight minutes to get his revenge when Alan Burton pushed the ball to him from midfield, and he spied a gap and drilled a shot from about 18 yards low into the Ashton net. Ashton levelled in the 57th minute with a Martin Pilkington finish following confusion in the Skem defence after Hardiwck had to leave the field with an injury.
