Prescot Cables v Trafford Programme, 22nd December 2018

Christmas and New Year are really difficult for programme editors, not least because it is necessary to produce anything up to three programmes before the printers close for Christmas.

We had two home games over the Festive Period; the programme shown below covers the first of them. Trafford are always a pleasure to deal with and sent their copy very early. For the features, we ran a 'History' theme, which as the match fell on the anniversary of one of the biggest victories ever recorded by a Prescot team, seemed appropriate.

Unfortunately, the extended workload meant that this programme went to press earlier than usual, meaning that there was no room for a really big story which broke after the deadline. As disapointing as that was, I'm more than happy with this programme.
