The Voice:
Stranger emotions in mind
Changing the contours I find
I’ve seen them once before
Someone cries to me
Oh, the look and the sound of
The Voice
They try, they try
Oh, the shape and the power of
The Voice

Ultravox! 1981.
I was and still am a massive fan of Ultravox, more the John Foxx incarnation […]

March 23rd, 2009

Ormskirk u15s  26pts - Warrington u15s  7pts
This was a repeat of last year’s semi-final, but that’s where any similarity finished. It was a great game with both sides giving their all, no quarter asked or given, but still played in a very sporting fashion. Warrington arrived with confidence and this season have made a number […]

Sunday 15th March was a re-arranged fixture away to Manchester.
