Labour MP Bill Esterson and the town's newest councillors were the first to congratulate Maghull FC following a successful season.

Maghull FC amassed a clutch of trophies this season after the under 9s won the treble after netting the Burscough Tournament while the  first team brought the Pyke Trophy back to Maghull.

MP Bill Esterson, Sudell Ward's Cllr Patrick McKinley and Maghull Town Councillor Maurice Byrne were all on hand to join the team's post-season celebrations.

Bill said: "Maghull FC have had a tremendous season and I'd like to congratulate them all.

"John Brownrigg's team brought back the historic 118 year old Pyke Cup and the under 9s topped off an amazing run by winning the treble.

"Being involved in local sport myself, I know how much effort it takes to run clubs like Maghull FC and how much each and every person involved puts in. So it is a great achievement for them all and for the town.

"Local sport can play a major part in the life of a community and Maghull FC is a prime example of a club which is at the heart of life int he town. I look forward to watching more of their games, working with them in the future and seeing them build on the success of this season."

The three Maghull elected Labour representatives heard about the club's ambitious plans for the future which will see Maghull FC become the hub of local sporting excellence.

Cllr McKinley said: "Maghull FC has a proud history, but hearing about some of their plans this is just the beginning for the club.

"They have ambitious plans to give access to sport to people of all abilities from throughout Maghull, particularly the under 20s which I am sure will end up seeing Maghull FC produce a future Steven Gerard or Leighton Baines.

"What Maghull Fc is doing is to the benefit of the whole community and I and my Labour colleagues on Sefton council and Maghull Town Council will work with them on their future plans."
