  1. AFC Blackpool Senior Seasiders are looking forward to playing against the Corinthians in the WFA Over 60’s Competition. First round game at the end of May. Should be a good one.

  2. A big THANK YOU to Mick Tarpey of Roach Dynamos for the best example of sportsmanship that I have ever see on a football pitch.

    Mick won a penalty against us and stepped up to take it. Our keeper saved it but the ref (wrongly) said that the kick had to be retaken because Mick has taken more than one step. Mick stepped up to retake the penalty and tapped it to our keeper saying that it was the wrong decision and if he hadn’t scored with more than one step then he didn’t deserve to score.

    Mick’s sportsmanship cost his team three points and himself the Golden Boot for being top goalscorer BUT he did the right thing. An example to us all.

    Les Turner, Chairman AFC Blackpool Senior Seasiders
