Lancashire Challenge Trophy Final Tonight 7.30

We are in Cup Final action this evening with a short trip to Lancashire FA HQ in Leyland where we will play West Didsbury & Chorlton for the first ever time. Please note the kick off time is 7.30

WD&C are the 222nd team we will have played as a Non League side.

Our route to the final has seen a 3-1 home win against Daisy Hill, a 3-1 away win at Charnock Richard and the 2-1 semi-final win at Leyland against Lancaster City.

Despite the lower league status WD&C are likely to provide stiff opposition for The Sandgrounders. They have been promoted as champions of the North West Counties South Division scoring an amazing 114 goals in their 38 games and losing just 3 games. They also broke a league record when winning 18-0 against St Martins, who to be fair, conceded 244 goals in the season!

Whilst some people may choose to decry the competition we have always enjoyed the occasions and it will be great to see everyone backing the lads at Leyland and getting a reward their endeavours deserve this season. As manager Liam Watson said in his post match interview on Saturday, this competition has been kind to us in the past, everyone has enjoyed the nights and we will be all out to win the Trophy once again.

Admission will be via cash at the turnstiles on the day. Adult £10 Concession £5. No advance tickets.

The match will be live streamed by the Lancashire FA for anyone unable to attend. Details Here

We will be bringing Twitter updates from the game but we have been advised by the Lancashire FA that we are not allowed to film the game.


Refreshments for spectators will be available 60 minutes prior to kick off serving a range of hot & cold food, alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages from the 1878 Café and match day kiosk
