FC Reebok

Our call to new new clubs for background information has provoked a very interesting response from FC Reebok who are likely to field an ex Scottish International/Rangers player for a number of games in Division 3A this season.

FC Reebok (Abbreviated sometimes to FC Rbk) was officially formed as an 11 A side team last season where we played only a hand full of games to gauge our ability to step up from a 5 Aside team in Preston before joining the Blackpool Sunday league for this season.

A club that was formed by and funded by the sportswear giants based in Lancaster & Bolton for its employees and associates it is intended that the club has a warm family atmosphere hence our decision to play our football at the YMCA in Lytham (near where most of our players live) and the wives and children can come down and support.

As well as a bit of fun there is a serious side to the team using their younger more agile players as a test bed for boots and equipment before bringing to market the full product stories to be supported by such players as Thierry Henry, Andrei Shevcenko, Ryan Giggs and Ike Casillas to name but a few.

A mixture of youth and experience throughout the squad has stood us in good stead during our preseason program. With two draws against Progress Properties (Last seasons runaway division 3b winners) and a further draw against Mythop Leisure (highly fancied favourites of division 3a) has given us something to build on moving into our first season. Additional preseasons at Anfield, The Reebok Stadium and the City of Manchester gave our younger players the opportunity to experience the big stage where they equipped themselves well against some top opposition. 

Club Secretary: Mark Kelly
Managers: Jonathan Frost/Peter Sutton

General Club Manager: Derek Parlane (Nickname: the Ledge)
Previous Clubs; Rangers, Leeds, Man City. 12 Caps for Scotland.

Although not a week in week out player, knees permitting Derek will be turning out when the sun is shining and we are playing at home as he doesn't travel well. Everyone is anticipating the opportunity of the 'Ledge' playing alongside his son 'little Ledge' for the first time ever and hope that his son can replicate the kind of form in the cup games that his dad did in the European Cup during the 70's.
