Reserves ready to go

Craig Johnston

Reds Reserves will kick-off their seventeenth consecutive season of Lancashire League football on 12 August when they travel to play Lancaster City.

The League has reverted to two mini divisions this season – east and west – and each club will then play every team once in the League Cup competition.

That will mean Reds playing five clubs – Barrow, Kendal Town, Lancaster City, RIASA Fusion and RIASA Royals – on a home and away basis in the league with a one off match against Barrow, Bradford RIASA, Chorley, Hyde, Kendal Town, Lancaster City, Leeds RIASA, RIASA Fusion and RIASA Royals in the league cup.

The Cup will be run on a league table basis with the top four at the end of the season contesting the semi-finals.

That will give Reds a programme of nineteen matches, minimum, which is a satisfactory number for young players at this stage of their development.

Garforth Town were accepted into the League at the AGM in June but then tendered their resignation a month later.

Former players, Brian Dawson and Craig Johnston, will be in charge of the Reds squad this season.
