    'Skelmersdale United Football Club'

    For 135 years, Skelmersdale United Football Club has has provided a platform for the careers of many ambitious young footballers, some of which have gone on to great heights both domestically and abroad.

    However, now all that is at risk as we have been forced in to a very difficult situation by our landlord Chequer Properties Limited owned by Mr. Martin Gilchrist. After the events of 20th October saw the club locked out of the Uretek Stadium, the club officially has NO home in the town.

    After huge aid from Marine AFC saw the club begin to play OUTSIDE of the town, Saturday officially sees the club begin what we HOPE will be a temporary exit from Skelmersdale, beginning a season-long groundshare at Prescot Cables' Volair Park while we investigate the prospect of building a new stadium in Skelmersdale.

    All this has meant we will require to find funds for the additional expense incurred, and we would be very grateful for any additional support to assist us through this difficult time, even a few more bodies through the gate on match days helps, buy a club lottery ticket, your support will be appreciated and is much needed.

    We are doing our best to make sure that Skelmersdale United F.C. continues to be part of your community for many more years to come, so please offer whatever you can to help.
