    The Railway in Latchford Village.

    Yes Peter T is sadly missed along with many other posters who are now no longer with us - but living on in spirit on here!

    Grand Final

    It could have been a much different story if Tomkins had received his punishment on the day! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/10/16/tomkins-banned-for-grand-final-incident/

    Great FA Cup Draw

    FA Cup 4th qualifying round at home to Halifax Town! Doesn't get much better than that - and just one game away from 1st Round proper again! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/10/08/warrington-town-land-home-tie-with-halifax-in-fa-cup/

    Crowd funding ?

    If they think you are a deserving cause you never know!
  12. Events like this make me proud to be a Warringtonian and British https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/09/22/military-freemen-75-engineers-regiment-parade-through-heart-of-warrington/ Shame it only happens once every five years

    Crowd funding ?

    Some times I wonder about crowd funding to help support employing journalists - as with shrinking advertising revenues and sales newspapers can't afford to employ investigative journalists any more.

    Happy birthday Dizzy

    Many happy returns to birthday girl Dizzy. It will be probably several days before she sees this as she now lives in facebook world - the place she said she would never venture

    Going to have to be a lot better to beat Wigan away - and missing several key players!

    Challenge Cup Final

    Disappointing result and crowd - but still a great day out and the primrose and blue were out in force. Still prefer Wembley to the Grand Final experience!

    Catalan Dragons at home

    Thank you kind sir - now we have had Catalans win the Challenge Cup looks like the focus will continue outside the heartlands. Apparently 5 million watched the game in France - doesn't put bums on seats here though! The game is in complete turmoil and something needs to be done fast as clubs can't survive with half empty stadiums.

    Catalan Dragons at home

    One of my frustrations of the modern game with this obsession of expansion outside the traditional areas which never generate huge support and cause travel problems and added expense. We have a hot bed of rugby league in Cumbria and yet no real effort to get a Cumbrian Super League outfit. A Cumbrian franchise would attract a huge following and help fill stadiums - as well as providing a realistic afternoon out for visiting supporters. Loved a trip to the Lake District and a couple of pints in a local pub pre-match.

    Amazing medical

    Whatever happened to this forum??

    Social media has killed off many forums - only the diehards on here now. Even as the creator of the forum and a former Chairman/director of the football club I find little time to engage on here now - as the business focus forces me to spend far too much time on social media!!
  22. You couldn't make it up! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/07/24/sex-offenders-to-be-taken-at-appleton-thorn-open-prison/ All without any local consultation with anyone! Appalling for local democracy! Yes people deserve a second chance in life - but not outside the front doors of a primary school!!!

    Top Four - End of Regular Season

    Been a good first season for Steve Price, whatever happens from here. Silverware would be the icing on the cake! Need to sort out a regular goal kicker as well!

I have three different browsers, IE, Firefox and Chrome, all work fine and editing stuff is straight forward so I don't knpw why any of you are having problems? But I am sure Dizzy will resolve them for you - Dizzy there is a forum upgrade challenge for you which may help
