Non-League Football: Former Evertonian lends helping hand; BURSCOUGH.
FORMER Everton and Birmingham City midfielder Alan Ainscow is to take over as coach of Burscough's Under-17s side in a joint role with exLinnet's defender, Kevin Formby.
Ainscow, a former England youth international, made almost 500 League appearances during a distinguished playing career, starting at Blackpool before moving on to Birmingham City, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and Rochdale while Formby was transferred by Burscough to Rochdale in 1994 for a fee of pounds 11,000 and went on to play at Anfield in an FA Cup tie against Liverpool.
Along with the recent appointments of former manager John Davison, to oversee the progress of young players in the club, and UEFA 'A' qualified reserve team coach Steve Hill, it is a measure of Burscough's determination to maintain the high standards established in recent seasons in attracting and developing a steady stream of talented young players at the club
