30.06.07 Plenty of "atmosphere" for LYG final
Teams from eleven Lancashire boroughs competed today in Stanley Park,
Blackpool, as part of the Lancashire Youth Games. Many SROC helpers

medals. LYG coordinator Steve McLean planned individual loop courses to
reduce following, creating a new challenge for many of the participants who were
on only their second or third event! Follow this
