Phoenix clubs are an unfortunate necessity of modern day football, but rarely do they happen because a club owner just simply won’t field a team any more.
A selection of football articles, either written for my own blog, that were produced in my formative years or that are no longer available where they were originally published.
Reid has Warrington Wembley dream
Warrington Town continue on the road to Wembley in the FA Trophy on Saturday, and boss Shaun Reid hopes another dream can come true.
Peel Hall 6-3 Crosfields
Crosfields lost their last game of the season to Peel Hall. Crosfields went ahead through Matt Gardner but that goal was soon cancelled out at the other end. The game stayed pretty even throughout the first although the score at half time was Peel Hall three Crosfields one. In the second half Crosfields pulled the […]

Hitchen wasn’t to blame though. Crosfields showed the same spirit and determination but they didn’t attack as well as last week. They had glimpses of the Moorfield goal […]
