Get in the mood for Valentines Day by seeing the team you love in action!

For the third time of asking, next Tuesday (13th February 7.45pm) sees The Blues heading tup the M6 for what is an absolutely huge game for both ourselves and second placed Prescot Cables.

Whilst our recent form has been outstanding, Cables have also been very consistent and will provide the sternest of tests. That’s’ why we’ll need as many of the True Blue Army there as possible to cheer the lads on. It’s something we always bang on about, but the management and players absolutely love seeing you there!

The True Blue Army will assemble at?
Prescot Cables play at The Joseph Russell Stadium, which is around 55 miles from Leek by road. Here are the directions for those going in the car from Leek – and let’s hope that I’ve got them right this time!

  • Take the M6 northbound
  • At junction 21A, exit onto M62 towards Liverpool/Warrington(N)/Southport/M57
  • At junction 6, Use the left 2 lanes to merge onto M57 towards Southport/Docks/Prescot
  • At junction 2, take the A57 exit to St Helens/Prescot
  • At Forest House Interchange, take the 1st exit onto Liverpool Rd/A57
  • At the roundabout, take the 4th exit and stay on Liverpool Rd/A57
  • Continue to follow A57
  • Turn left onto Hope St
  • Turn left onto Eaton St

Address: Joseph Russell Stadium, Eaton Street, Prescot L34 6ED
