THE Blackburn Sunday Football League lost an entire league programme for only the second time this season when all games were called off on Sunday morning.
In the coming weeks there are going to be a number of big games in all divisions before it gets down to finding out where the silverware will be heading at the season’s end of the campaign.
In Division One, the top three teams have all to face each other and while these games will have a bearing on the final honours, there are a number of teams in this league that, on their day, can beat anybody – and it is these games that will decide the destination of the silverware.
Royal Oak in Division Two need just three points to clinch the title, while a number of other teams are in the running for the final promotion spot which will go right to the wire.
In Division Three Whinney Hill Colts and Helmshore Harriers currently occupy the promotion spots but as in other divisions all the top five clubs have to play each other, and in this division any team is capable of causing a surprise result on their day.
* Two clubs have started the year on a positive note by winning the monthly award for December: New Gardeners have collected the Team of the month award (sponsored by AMT Lawyers), they will receive a voucher for £35.
Mill Hill collected the Fair play league award for December (sponsors Colborne Trophies; & Blackburn with Darwen Sports Council), this rewards teams for their behaviour and disciplinary record, and they will receive a voucher for £40.
