The Damned United has always brought to mind the words of L.P. Hartley: “The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.”  For a work depicting reasonably modern history, it shows a sport, ownership structure, management style and professional standards that bear little-to-no relation to modern football. The film details the bizarre 44-day […]

ARCADIA — Anticipating approval by the California Horse Racing Board, Santa Anita plans to reopen for live racing on Friday for the first time since it was shut down following the deaths of 22 horses. The track on Sunday issued a revised stakes schedule that includes the $600,000 Santa Anita Handicap to be run April 6, the same day as the $1 million Santa Anita Derby. The CHRB is to meet on Thursday to consider new safety and medication rules that Santa Anita, Golden Gate Fields and the Thoroughbred Owners of California agreed to on March 16. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]Racing has been suspended at the track since March 5 after 22 horses suffered fatal injuries since Dec. 26. Limited training is being allowed on the main dirt track while testing of the surface and new rules involving safety and medication have been worked out. If the CHRB approves and racing resumes, Santa Anita will feature the $200,000 San Luis Rey Stakes on Friday. The Santa Anita Handicap originally was to be run on March 9.

STOCKPORT COUNTY have vowed to impose lifetime bans on the two fans who invaded the pitch during their dramatic FA Trophy semi-final with Fylde. Players from Fylde were confronted by the fans as they celebrated their 89th minute winning goal. A Stockport fan (wearing blue) runs on the pitch to confront celebrating Fylde players A statement from Stockport said: “We are embarrassed by the behaviour of the fans who ran on the pitch to confront the Fylde players, despite repeated warnings not to enter the field of play. “We are analysing CCTV and other footage in order to identify the two offenders and we will pass their details to Greater Manchester Police, whilst also seeking to impose lifetime bans from Edgeley Park. “This incident has spoiled the occasion for the 6000 loyal County fans who came to the game.” The FA will launch an investigation into the incident which saw players from both sides get involved. It all comes just a fortnight after Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish was hit by a Birmingham City fan in the second City derby sparking a debate about players’ safety. Fylde’s Alan Birch was confronted first by a fan who he pushed away as did Zaina Francis-Angol. Club captain Neill Byrne then charged in and shoved the same fan back towards the stand behind the goal. Stockport’s Frank Mulhern also grabbed the yob and remonstrated with him before a steward took him away. Fylde chairman David Haythornwaite said: “I think it is going to happen, you are always going to get one or two. “We don’t want to go back to the days when everything was barbed wire and fences.” Incidents were not confined to the pitch with some Stockport fans turning on Haythornwaite in the directors box for his exuberant celebrations. Haythornwaite said: “We were in the lions’ den up there in the directors’ box, we were getting some stick. “They hate the fact that we are here and we are upstarts and they are an old club and they in theory should be better than us. “But in the end we had a smile and shook hands and had a laugh.” [quote credit=”Fylde Chairman David Haythornwaite”]We don’t want to go back to the days when everything was barbed wire and fences[/quote] One fan also got to the mouth of the Fylde dressing room after the game and was taken away. The visitors did not let it all dampen their celebrations after their 3-2 win as they boomed out ‘Sweet Caroline’. It had been some game too before 6,064 people at Edgeley Park. After a goalless first leg it was all to play for between two clubs a league apart with Fylde in fifth place in the Vanarama National League and Stockport near the top of the sixth tier. Stockport had taken the lead in the 25th minute through Nyal Bell before Danny Rowe levelled things up with a 65th minute penalty. Then came a bizarre five minutes with Ryan Croasdale putting Fylde ahead in the 85th minute, Ashley Palmer equalising in the 88th before Alex Reid plundered the winner less than 60 seconds later. So little Fylde under the expert guidance of Dave Challinor are on their way to Wembley to face Leyton Orient who they also travel to face tomorrow in what will be a crucial league clash. Six points separate leaders Orient and Fylde in fitth. [article-rail-section title=”most read in football” posts_category=”339″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”popular” /] Chairman Haythornwaite said: “We are not a massive club we were kicking around on a park in front of 100 people ten years ago. “It’s another big step on a journey we set off on a long time ago. “We still want to go up most of all. The league is still within our grasp.” Alex Reid scored a late goal to secure an FA Trophy win for Fylde, angering Stockport supporters
