Huge hopes down at Blainscough Park

Coppull United manager Dave Houghton has high hopes for his side this year after securing two major signings.

The Blainscough Park outfit finished sixth last year in the West Lancashire league Premier Division.

And I think with the quality players they have signed, they can definitely improve on this.

My man to watch is former Preston North End and Wrexham playmaker Nathan Fairhurst.

There is also his midfield partner and fellow new signing Karl Burke to take into consideration, but Fairhurst’s quality and experience will definitely show in the Coppull midfield.

Dave said he has seen enough from his side this pre season to think they can challenge for silverware.

With a current squad size of more than 20, I think Coppull have a more than decent chance of finishing in the top three – providing they can keep hold of Fairhurst.
