Howard named new league president
JOHN Howard, who has been associated with the Lancashire and Cheshire AFL for 62 years, has been appointed president for the 2015-16 season.
During his long connection with the league John has played and then served in a variety of ways on the league committee.
“When I was informed by the league chairman at the end of the 2014-15 season that the management committee wished to honour my service to the league with the presidency for the 2015-16 season, my immediate thought was of joining the past presidents who have served the league over its 107-year history,” said Howard.
“There have been 69 past presidents since 1909 and each has given a part of themselves to the development and well-being of a fine institution we know affectionately as the “L&C”.
