St Helens


Saturday 28th February, when the Robins took on St. Helens at the Showground and won 1-0 thanks to a goal by Great Harwood legend Paul Baker. At the time Harwood were undisputed kings of ‘non-league’ football in the area. The previous season saw us win the N.W.C.L. 2nd Division and reach the 6th round of the F.A. Vase before losing to Littlehampton. This season saw us continue in the same vein, top of the 1st Division with two games to play, and an A.T.S. semi-final against Blackpool Rovers coming up during the week.

The team that day was:

John Litle

Neil Rowbotham, Paul Rigby

Paul Whalley, Martin Eatough, Neil Baron

David Sharples, Mark Heyes

Lee Rogerson, Peter Smith, Paul Baker
