CHAIRMAO Notes from the little Purple book of COLFC Chairman, Paul Manning. Welcome everybody for today’s top of the table clash against Congleton Town.

Last season Widnes finished in 2nd place, but they did the league double over Champions Runcorn Linnets, so Congleton can beat us today, but there will still be 57 points to play for thereafter. For our part, all we can do is prepare properly and put out a motivated squad of players to carry out the game plan and I’m sure that Craig and his staff will be doing exactly that. In terms of us supporters, we want a loud and partisan crowd to cheer the lads on, but there HAS TO be a balance between loud and partisan and getting us in trouble with the league or the FA. Smoke canisters are NOT ALLOWED and cost us time and money. I’m not sure ho many times we have to say it? We have now been charged by the FA for the smoke at Padiham and that is going to cost us a fine. The people who displayed other bad behavior on the day were all adult enough to apologise to the club, but the person who threw the smoke canister has not yet come forward. Please don’t complain or slag us off when the Club Directors are forced to take action to ban people. Enjoy today’s game which should be a cracker and welcome to the Directors, Staff, Players and supporters of Congleton Town, who provided a warm welcome to us recently, so let’s reciprocate today.

After our recent defeat to The Bears, I made sure that all of our official communications gave the credit to Congleton for what was a great performance on the day to beat us 3-0. Very rarely do you ever hear or see any credit given to the other team for a winning performance and I felt it was appropriate to show some dignity after our first league defeat of the season. On the day Congleton were better than us and deserved their victory and celebrations afterwards, if one thing is certain, you have to be able to enjoy your victories, because the defeats are very painful indeed. Today of course, we hope to put the record straight and put in the kind of performance that we have shown we are capable of this season, in front of what should be a big crowd. At Congleton we were missing Kevin McEllin and Craig Cairns and we hope that both are available today to effectively put us at full strength, save for John McGrath’s longer term injury but it is not just down to Kevin and Craig to make a difference from the game at Congleton. All 16 players in the squad for today’s game have to be at 100%. A win is important for us today of course, as a win in any game is important to us, but we will still only gain 3 points (or 1 point, or 0 points) today and with half of the season still left to be played, nothing is going to be won or lost today.

managers notes I’d like to wish all the Purps and everyone connected with the club and there families a Happy Christmas and hope you all have a good one! Welcome to today’s game were we welcome Congleton Town FC, 1st v 2nd a game were there is a lot of excitement around which everyone is looking forward to more so I would say for us as management and players as we only met a few weeks ago and credit to Congleton they won convincingly and deserved the win but we know as a group we were not good enough and far from our best and we all learnt a lot that day and we’ve reacted well since then.

against Northwich Victoria which we can look forward to in February. It was a good win which we ended up playing in difficult conditions against a tough side who never give up and made it difficult at times even with ten men but the players stuck at it and we won convincingly in the end. With this being our last home game before Christmas I’d like to wish all the Purps and everyone connected with the club and there families a Happy Christmas and hope you all have a good one! Let’s get it bouncing today and get behind the lads as they really do feel your support, thanks again!

congleton Town Events which led to the formation of Congleton Town Football Club, began in the 1890’s, the St James’ North Street School amalgamated with another local club, the Messrs Pointons Joiners Shop. They played on West Heath before housing was built in that area, and then became Congleton Hornets Football Club. The Hornets played at the Willow Street ground famed in Congleton, and competed in the South Cheshire League and recorded its’ record league win, 10-0 against Audley in the 1897/98 season. Congleton Town Football Club succeeded the Hornets in 1901, playing in the Crewe and District League for four years, the first three of which saw the club lift the League Championship. The Club then moved into the North Staffordshire League in 1905, and won the League Championship in the 1919/20 season. The following year they joined the Cheshire County League, regarded at the time as the best League outside the Football League. The following season they finished runners-up and won the coveted Cheshire Senior Cup in their first appearance in the Final. The Club then suffered a barren spell until the Senior Cup was won again in 1938. Success after the War did not descend on Booth Street until the 1971/72 season when the Club, now playing in the Mid-Cheshire League, won the League Cup after being runners-up in the League both that season and in the previous season. Three Mid-Cheshire League Championships then came to Booth Street in the 1973/74, 1975/76 and 1977/78 seasons, together with the League Cup and the Cheshire Saturday Cup. Although this was the most successful period of the Club’s history as regards silverware, the truly successful period began in the 1981/82 campaign, when the Second Division of the Cheshire County League was gained on the last game of the season, and Town were narrowly beaten to the Cup by Macclesfield Town. That was the last season of the Cheshire County League before the North West Counties League came into existence. As founder members of this new League, Congleton finished the first three campaigns in mid-table and then were narrowly beaten to the Championship by Clitheroe on goal difference in the 1985/86 season. The Club then had its, application to join the Northern Premier League rejected, but joined the higher league when the First Division of the NFL was formed in 1987. The highlight of the 1989/90 season was to reach the First Round Proper of the FA Cup for the first time in the Club’s history. Although beaten 2-0 by Crewe Alexandra, that achievement re-kindled local interest in the Club upon which its management hoped to build. The Final of the NPL’s First Division Cup was also reached in this season, but the “Bears” were beaten 5-1 on aggregate by Harrogate Town. The “Bears” enjoyed exciting times in

the First Division, initially finishing in mid-table but then, playing to avoid relegation as the seasons come to a close. Between 1993 and 1997 a new Board of Directors brought financial and managerial stability to the Club, whilst the present Directors aim to continue this work and improve the Club’s fortunes in the years ahead. The club had a good season in 1999/2000 but fell away badly the following year. Despite reaching a best ever 4th Round of the FA Trophy before defeat by Worksop Town, they struggled badly in the league. The club appointed Sean Connor as manger in February 2001 but he could not prevent them finishing bottom of the UniBond League and relegation became a reality. The early season of 2001/02 saw the club take just 9 points from 17 league matches and early exit from FA Cup and FA Vase. Sean Connor was replaced as manager by Kevin Langley, ex Everton and Man City. The club made a fine revival and had reached virtual safety before Langley’s shock move to Kidsgrove Athletic. Bryan Griffiths took over as manager and gained the points to make safety a certainty and stake a strong claim to keep the manager’s job. He was formally appointed at the end of the season. Gary Bickerstaffe joined him as assistant and in September 2002 he invited Kevin Langley to return as a player and to help with coaching. When Griffiths left to join Rossendale Utd, Kevin Langley was re-appointed as manager and Mark Cox joined to complete an experienced management team. Off the field the club continued to enjoy growing support from sponsors and steady improvements in its facilities, culminating with the signing of a two-year deal with Macclesfield based SSG Group of Companies during the summer of 2003. During the summer of 2002, the clubhouse underwent major refurbishment and is seen by the club as a major step towards increasing its revenue potential. The changing facilities were redesigned and upgraded. The team reached the fifth Round of the FA Vase, beat three higher league sides in reaching the 3rd Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, the semi-finals of the Cheshire Senior Cup and the Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup. In all cup competitions other than the FA Cup, only the eventual finalists beat the Bears. With promotion missed, a number of players left the club in the summer of 2004 leaving Kevin Langley with the task of rebuilding the side for the 2004/05 campaign. After a poor start and early exits from all major cup competitions, Karl Wilcox replaced Kevin Langley after he resigned in November 2005. In a further twist in an already difficult season,

9


Karl Wilcox resigned after 11 defeats in 12 games. Paul Moore was appointed for the remainder of the season and he guided the team to safety before confirmation of his appointment signalled the start of rebuilding of a side aiming to challenge for honours. 2005/06 started brightly with SSG adding a third year to its already valuable sponsorship, but swift exits from cup competitions were a disappointment. After many changes in personnel, the team settled to end the season with a creditable run in that held promise for 2006/07. The start of a football academy for 6-15 year olds and the introduction of a reserve side were positive steps to help build the teams of the future. 2006/07 saw new sponsors STD Limited, part of the Pallex network, entering a 2-year deal which they then extended a further year. The supporters trust provided kit for the reserve team. After a steady start to the 2006/07 campaign, Paul Moore left to manage Leek Town and Andy Lee took over the managerial reins as the club strived to maintain continuity. The Bears lifted their first piece of silverware for some time when they won the Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup after defeating Witton Albion 3-0 at Wincham Park. At the end of the season Andy Lee stepped down as he announced a proposed move to Blackpool and Anthony Buckle and Darren Twigg were appointed with the task of rekindling the on-field performances. Off the field new floodlights were installed and the stand behind the bottom goal was re-roofed. After a reasonable season, despite a poor final run in, both Anthony and Darren stayed with the club and continued to build a side with promotion the target within the next couple of years. That plan was maintained in 2008/09 as the Bears ended a creditable 4th, just 1 point away from a 3rd place finish. A final run in of just 1 league defeat in the last 20 matches encouraged everyone. With two new key local businessmen, Nick Shatwell and Martin Lenton teaming up to add impetus to the club’s ambition, significant development of the clubs facilities were started. A redesigned entrance, turnstiles and car park were the first step. Refurbishment of the club house followed and tarmac has been laid in the car park. For the start of 20010/11 the club now has a hospitality suite for sponsors and a new boardroom. With Ant and Twiggy remaining at the helm, they have been busy strengthening the squad for a serious attempt to lift some silverware and to complete the ambition for a return to Northern Premier League football. However, after an indifferent season in 2010/11 the pair tendered their resignation. 2011/12 saw the club jointly managed by Joe Paladino and Adriano Rigoglioso. Assisted by Joe Gibiliru, the playing side were completely reformed but indifferent results led to Dean Sibson placed in temporary charge in early November before Jim Vince was appointed in February 2012. His was tasked with rebuilding the side ready for a real push for promotion in 2012/13. He was initially assisted by Neil Gill and Steve Hardy before Neil left the club mid season. With the addition of Gateley Solicitors and PKF Accountants forming new partnerships with the club, the erection of a new

spectator covered standing area and strengthening off field organisation, the club starts the new season with a new found enthusiasm and optimism for 2012/13. That was not borne out completely, so strengthening was needed for 2013/14. Having been awarded grade E for their ground in March 2013, ready for the next tier in the pyramid, strengthening of the playing squad was a priority and over the close season some additional players were brought in to complement the majority that were staying. Both Jim and Steve Hardy, now with Andy Alston on the coaching staff, look to improve on last year’s achievements with promotion still the obvious goal. With the opportunity to continue strengthening the squad for 2014/15, Jim has signed players that will improve the overall quality of the squad and once again push for that elusive promotion place for a return to Northern Premier League football. That wish just failed to materialise and the club once more looked to change direction with the replacement of Jim Vince. Steve Hardy and Mike McDonald have taken over the running of team affairs with Andy Alston and team captain Andrew Langford able to add their experience to the redeveloping of the side. With a number of players departing in the summer, Mike and Steve have started the rebuilding which may take a few matches to get 2015/16 in full swing. After a string of disappointing performances and results, the club board moved to appoint Andy Alston and Griff Jones as joint managers. Although neither have a track record of management, the club felt they had the right credentials to bring the best out of the squad. That was proved in an excellent run of 14 games unbeaten in March and April 2016 but work commitments meant Griff could not give the time to his role and during the close season, Andy appointed Tom Baker, from Prescot Cables (and an ex-Bear) as his assistant. Both were tasked to continue the work to build the strength and quality of the squad to try to improve on the 6th place finish in 2015/16. Sadly season 2016/17 proved to be disappointing, culminating in the Bears ending 16th and Andy Alston stepping down. The Bears moved quickly to appoint Ian Street, who had left 1874 Northwich in March, as manager and he in turn appointed his assistant Brian Pritchard, who played for Witton and is their record appearance holder before he went on to manage them. They are joined by Paul Johnson, an A Licence coach with Port Vale Academy. The appointments have rekindled the enthusiasm among fans. Ian Street did not last long as he decided to step down in November and Brian Pritchard took over with Paul Johnson as Assistant. An astute signing of ex Port Vale and Leyton Orient midfielder Anthony Griffith has helped the younger players and he has taken over as team captain. Coupled with a strong pre-season training regime that has lifted fitness levels, the Bears look to make a strong start to the 2018/19 campaign

captains notes Today is a massive game for us, it doesn’t get much bigger at the moment, a top of the table clash heading into Christmas, a chance for us to extend our lead and a chance for Congleton to level up on points, so I’m sure today will be a good competitive game with both teams going for the win.

the game is amazing, and it’s down to us on the pitch to execute what they ask from us. We have a fully fit squad going into this game with Kevin coming back in after a few weeks out so there is no reason why we can’t get the three points and remain top of the league. Last Saturday we had a great win against Burscough and it was nice to see the team scoring goals again after a few weeks not firing against all cylinders. We scored some great goals and the confidence is back up and running with the lads. Special mention to little Jack who was unreal last week in a different position, and just proves how good he actually he is that he can play in any position he is asked and still be the best player on the pitch. Hopefully we get a big crowd in today and everyone gets behind the lads as always, your support will get us through the tough games!

Congleton are flying at the moment and beat us fair and square a couple of weeks ago in a game where we weren’t at the races but we have no excuses, Congleton were better than us on the day and deserved the three points. We are desperate to win today, to prove to everyone that we are the best team in the league and to show everyone how hard we are working to win this league, the work that Robbo and the management team put in all week preparing us for

With the ongoing success of our football for everyone project and our brand-new walking football initiative we are starting to put the wheels in motion for our next scheme, Kits4Kids, a scheme which aims to provide children in the local area with the equipment and kit needed to participate in football. Families are struggling to put food on the table and keep a roof over their head never mind forking out £40/£50 for a pair of boots every year plus shin pads, kit etc, if you have more than one child you’re suddenly looking at spending a few hundred pounds, and that’s before any subs need paying. An analysis by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) reveals cuts to benefits and tax credits under the Tory government will see children hardest hit, forecasting that around one and a half million more under-18s will live in households below the relative poverty line by 2022. The research, which analyses the

impact of welfare reforms between 2010 and 2018, shows households with lone parents and children are set to lose an average of £5,250 – almost one-fifth of their total net income, compared to a loss of £3,000 for couples with children. This will see the child poverty rate for those in lone parent households increase from 37 per cent to over 62 per cent. These children are of great risk of being isolated and abandoned socially. The life skills learned through football help empower individuals and enhance mental wellbeing, such as increased resiliency, self-esteem and connections with others. These features of football are beneficial to people of all ages, but they are especially vital to the healthy development of young people. We must do more to increase engagement and encourage young people into football, not stand by while they are priced out of the game through no fault of their own. This is where the fantastic City of Liverpool FC Supporters come in! If there are any old kits, boots or shin pads that your son/ daughter has grown out of then please do not hesitate to contact us and we can arrange a collection or drop them off at one of the home games where one of our Community team will collect them from you.
