DO THEY MEAN US? BOOTLE FC
This Saturday (13th April 3pm) sees your Champions face Play Off-chasing Bootle in what will be a fantastic occasion at the F. Ball Community Stadium. The League Championship Trophy will be presented to Josh and the lads at the end of what looks to be an absolutely cracking game.

Whilst the league is done and dusted, the team really do need your support in our last three league games to finish as strongly as possible. Your support has been absolutely outstanding all season, and the management team and squad really do appreciate the numbers and noise that you bring to each game!

The True Blue Army will assemble at?
It’s at home, with the Blues Bar and Blues Bites open as usual, and with merchandise on sale by the bar. Any early Premier League kick off match will be on the telly, so get down early and let’s make it an afternoon to remember! Don’t leave early – let’s see that trophy presented and history being made. Don’t forget: the bar is open after the game, too.

There will be opportunity to get you selfie with the players and the trophy in the bar after the game.

  • Adult £10
  • Concession £7
  • Under 18 £3
  • Under 8’s Free

What are they known as/Nickname(s)?
The Bucks

Their website?
www.bootlefc.com

How are they doing?
The Bucks are in fourth place with 59 points from 34 matches and have an outstanding away record this season, their game in hand could well put them in 2nd. It’s going to go to the wire for a Play Off place for a number of teams, but The Bucks do have a five point cushion from the chasing pack, and will be looking for a home game in the Play Offs if they qualify. This will be a stern test on our own patch on Saturday.

Their gaffer?
Mick McGraa is The Bucks’ first team manager after joining them from nearby Vauxhall Motors FC in September last year.

Their main man?
Ben Hodkinson has 17 goals to his name this season, including a brace in last week’s 5-1 win against 1874 Northwich.

6 Of The Best – six things you probably didn’t know about Bootle (FC)…..

  1. The original Bootle FC were formed in 1879
  2. In 1953, the current club was formed as Langton. After a successful spell in the Liverpool County Combination, the club requested to change its name to the latest incarnation of Bootle FC in 1973
  3. Bootle’s docks made the town a key target in World War II, with up to 90% of the town's homes damaged
  4. Bootle is three miles north of Liverpool city centre
  5. Famous footballers from Bootle include Jamie Carragher, Roy Evans, Steve McManaman, and Alvin Martin
  6. ……And if you want to play pop, then ‘Cheggers’ himself – Keith Chegwin – is also from the town
