Ahead of Lancaster City’s new season beginning on Saturday we asked you for your views on how Darren Peacock’s Blues will get on


Gary Wilson @garrywilson520

Play offs at least. Expecting Kilifin to carry the goal threat. Will be interesting if Sinclair makes an impact

Steve Wright @stevemrw1964

hoping 4 playoffs tough season with some big spending rivals big test 4 management @tomkilifin @rywinder & G Hunter the keys

Jan Buxton @janlbuxton

going to be a tough league this year given financial might of several rivals but hoping for a play off spot.

Promotion should be the agenda this season!

Tom Skinner @TomSkinner01

I’m expecting a strong 2014/15 season after last year’s near miss. Winder will be key. Got to be going for 1st


Really looking forward to the coming season. So pleased Darren has stayed with us and improved the backroom staff.

We were very unlucky last season just missing out on the play-offs on goal difference.

The season ahead is looking good with more players wanting to come and play for our manager and I believe it will be an even better season results wise.

My sincere hope is that the club administrators back the manager in everything he needs and really start to recognise the true importance of the loyal supporters of Lancaster City Football Club.

Watch out Morecambe, were coming to get you! To all players, our super manager Darren and his assistants the very best of luck for the coming season.

Our View

Logic says that having only missed out on the play-offs on goal difference last year, when they should have sealed a top-five place weeks earlier, Lancaster City should be right in the mix in the Evo-Stik First Division North this year.

With Darren Peacock a year wiser as a manager that should be the case but it is far from clear cut due to events elsewhere.

The might of others, most loudly Salford City, means that it isn’t all about what goes on at Giant Axe this year as big-spending rivals might make it a race for the minor spoils.

Here’s hoping I’m wrong.
