Prescot Cables v Litherland REMYCA Programme

This issue was the third in five days and was always going to be a difficult programme to compile, although it was made harder by the news of the passing of Cables supporter Andy Maund the previous weekend. Andy had been among the first people to identify me as a fan when I started going to matches at Volair Park and we had connected on social media just a week earlier.

We ran a tribute to Andy inside the programme and made him the focal point of the cover. The match itself - a Liverpool Senior Cup Semi-Final switched to Volair Park because REMYCA's ground was unavailable - was dedicated to Andy. A minute's applause was held before kick-off and was a powerful tribute to a really nice man.

Finding fresh content was tricky, although the fact the Final was being played seven days later enabled me to prepare a spread on arrangements for that match. I also included a piece about the value of County Cups in the modern era.
