New signing to be announced shortly.

Yep good heads up. We can now line up with a CB pair of Preston, Lancashire....  Smiley  a few years back and could have been Blackburn, Lancashire.  A place with 4000 holes, slightly less than our defence.

I remember Gordon as a ginger haired wing half, didn't really settle so far south, you could chuck in Matt Heywood....

Don't forget putting in Garry Nelson in midfield.

Frank Warburton inside left.

Hard-pressed British soldiers swore they had seen angels, ghostly archers, even St. George himself, riding to their aid near Mons in August 1914 WWI.

I'd stick Garry upfront, he scored at a decent rate for Plymuff and Charlton after leaving us.  Leigh Barnard for me in the mid

Can Gareth Whalley play? I think we all know the answer to that.

I wanted to say Dave Bamber (Bridge)

Bit of local knowledge there... I seem to remember Andy Caton playing with Paul Ince. Could we do a whole team of historic Lancashire... Tom Heaton in goal

                    Heaton

Blackburn, Preston, Lancashire, Heywood

        Ince, Atherton, Whalley

      Caton, Nelson, Warburton.

  I'd like a more recent player than Frank Warburton as I remember all the others.

Michael (Red) Rose on the bench.

Yeah, I know, but he was born in Salford.  Embarrassed

For some reason I always thought that sounded Cornish... maybe to do with his years at Argyle.  Harland sounds Lancs but isn't.

I was about to pick you up there Reginald until I noticed the 'historic'....

On a side note on the photo of Preston with the scarf heís at a golf course, so assume thatís Highworth. Looks pretty well maintained and the flags are in the holes, is Power using it as his own private golf course?

Here's a puzzler, why should it be that we can find an XI of Lancastrian place names, but next to none for Yorkshire  Hmmm
