LAL take the John Howard Shield back

In the 99th meeting of the Lancashire Amateur League and the Lancashire and Cheshire AFL at Daisy Hill FC, the LAL ‘equalised’ 4-4 in the series.

The LA took the lead on 10 minutes after early pressure, and extended it after 35 minutes.

The newly formed L & C team, organised by Tim Roebuck, Anthony Horrox (Abacus Media) and Phil Noon of Milton, fought back in the second half, going close on a few occasions.

The well established LAL side took the match beyond doubt with a third goal after an hour, to deserve the win.

We are looking forward already to our next meeting which will be the centenary of our matches against our old friends.
