I agree with bruce almighty. It’s Newton boys club team and they were coached by an old friend of mine, Bob Shelby, from Ashton.

The point I was making is that there is no such thing as 'Earlestown boys club', only Newton, so why mention Earlestown at all? It's like calling Ashton Town Football Club - "Stubshaw Cross Town Football Club".
