Blackpool Wren Rovers - Proud Winners of the 2016 Lancashire FA Amateur Shield

At The County Ground in Leyland last week, Blackpool Wren Rovers were crowned champions of the Lancashire FA Amateur Shield competition.

Thornton Sports were honoured to sponsor this local event for the fifth consecutive year, having sponsored the Lancashire FA Senior Cup previously. Over 170 watched the match at the Lancashire FA’s base, where Thornton Sports previously installed new training and community facilities in 2011. Works there involved resurfacing of a sand-filled synthetic grass pitch with Thornton Sports’ in-house UK manufactured SoccerTurf™ 40M 3G surface and also construction of an adjacent new 5-a-side sports pitch with a similar SoccerTurf™ surface.

Roger De Nobrega, Chief Executive of the Lancashire FA comments:

"I would like to thank Thornton Sports for their continued sponsorship of the Lancashire FA Amateur Shield competition. The final was played in excellent spirit and was a great spectacle for grassroots football. Both teams fully deserved the plaudits that came their way but ultimately Blackpool Wren Rovers were the stronger team on the night and took away the prestigious Amateur Shield Trophy for season 2015/16."
