Knew Les well Geoff didn't he live off Gartons Lane.

He used to knock about town with us and he went to Cuthies didn't he?

I watched the hospital cup final at town ground way back in 1975,it was on Boxing Day.Prescot Celtic beat the Hen and Chickens 4-2,always remember Prescot had a black lad playing right full back he literally took them on on his own.

Prescot Celtic are not related to Prescot Cables.Celtic was formed in the 1960's when Brier road youth club in Prescot was kicked out of the Huyton league.Prescot Rangers was a offshoot of Celtic.Prescot Cables who changed their name to Prescot town in the 1970's play at Hope Street,they changed back to Cables in 2001.Prescot BICC now play as Prescot Leisure.Prescot Celtic moved from their home ground of Browns Field in Prescot to holt Lane in Rainhill and changed to ''The holt hotel'' which is now defunct.

Its amazing that I still keep up with the local football scene,St.Helens produced some very good amateur sides over the years.
