Football: Centurions in Prescot ground-share; GRIDIRON.

LIVERPOOL Centurions have announced a ground-share as part of their application to enter the British American Football League.

The outfit has teamed up with Unibond Premier Division football side Prescot Cables FC and will share their Valerie Park ground.

The Centurions plan to play home matches at the 3,000 capacity stadiumto bring American Football League action back to Merseyside.

Liverpool Centurions, formerly known as Mersey Centurions, won the BritBowl (Britain's equivalent to the SuperBowl) in 1987 with a 20-14 victory over Leicester Huntsmen.

A decision on the Centurions application will be heard in five weeks and by 2008, the club hope to be full members of the league.

The club plans to host its first match to celebrate Liverpool's 800th birthday on Saturday August 4 to give the people of Merseyside the opportunity to witness live American Football.
