2005/06 Season Summary

2005/06 was to be a long hard season but Liam Watson never had any doubt, we would not go down and he was proved right. Survival was assured in the penultimate game at Grays Athletic. It had looked impossible in October when the NL club record for time without a goal was broken with 618 minutes being
notched and we also experienced seven consecutive defeats but the team spirit and fight in the team was never bettered in all our thirty seasons and it was this that was universally accredited with being the reason for our survival. We also won the Lancashire Junior Cup at Leyland in a very subdued game and on a night that saw us go bottom of the table.
