Con Woman Jailed

Posted by Neil on Tuesday, 07 October 2014 at 10:36:32

Filed under: Announcements, Sports, Crime

A con woman who stole £20,000 from Lymm children's football team has been jailed after trying to get job as teacher. A fraudster who ripped off a junior football team in Lymm has been jailed after forging a security check to try and get a job in education.

Sheryl Ingham - also known as Cheryl Lee - attempted to change a letter that alerted recruiters at a teaching agency in Leeds to a criminal conviction.

That conviction related to an appearance at Warrington Crown Court in September last year, when Ingham admitted stealing more than £21,969.55 from Lymm Piranhas Junior Football Club. As voluntary treasurer, the defendant paid 29 cheques from the club into her own bank account.

Ingham, then using the surname Lee, was given a prison sentence of 16 months, suspended for two years, by Judge Nicholas Woodward. Despite the conviction, Ingham, aged 39, of Suffield Road, Gildersome, tried to gain employment with Celsian Education, in May this year.

Subsequent checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service - formerly known as a CRB check - flagged up Ingham was subject to a suspended sentence. A certificate confirming the security alert was sent by the DBS to Ingham, who was obliged to present it to the prospective employer.

However, West Yorkshire Police confirmed she tried to doctor the certificate, and continued trying to gain a job working with children. The defendant eventually handed herself into police on July 4 after the forgery was discovered. Ms Ingham was jailed for 16 months at Leeds Crown Court on September 2, this year. She pleaded guilty to the use of a false instrument with intent to be accepted as genuine.

Filed under: Announcements, Sports

Lymm Squash Club is looking to grow its coaching and development program for children aged 5-17 in Warrington and surrounding areas; aiming to introduce children to the popular sport of Squash.

The coaching program features six weekly squash coaching sessions on Saturday mornings led by coach Darren McCann. Sessions are tailored to suit children of any age and ability with each program concluding with a competition and prizes for participants.

The first program received great feedback with all participants signing up for the next program.  “The club is looking to build on the success of the first program by boosting the number of participants,” said Rob Spurr, Chairman of Lymm Squash Club. “We aim to give these Juniors the opportunity to compete at County and National level in the future as they develop.  Perhaps we’ll find the next Commonwealth Games star in Lymm!”

Six weeks of coaching works out at only £18 per child per and all equipment is provided making it a low cost sport to take up.

Since it was formed in 1984 (when Lymm Youth Club merged with Oughtrington Rovers,) the club has gone from strength to strength and has grown to 20 teams including 3 all girl teams.

The Club was awarded Chartered Status by the FA and then was awarded Community Club status in 2011.

Nowadays, we are very privileged to have all of the clubs training sessions and matches taking place within the beautiful grounds of Lymm High School.

The 2013/14 season saw a big change to the management structure of the club with the introduction of level 2 FA Qualified Coaches, with access to all of the squads.

The improving standards of the players has come to the attention of several professional clubs, with more than half a dozen children training with Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Crewe. The club is also represented within the Cheshire Girls Squads. 

Lymm Rovers Development Academy

This September will see the opening of the Lymm Rovers Development Academy. Open to children between 4 and 8 years of age, and taking place on Saturday mornings at 10.15.

The Academy will provide coaching within a fun, and progressive environment, the emphasis will be on learning new football skills and developing each child to the best of their ability.

All playing and coaching within this golden age of learning will follow current FA guidelines, which encourage play within a non-pressured environment.

We realise kids want to be part of a team so, In addition to the weekly coaching there will be regular indoor 5 a side tournaments involving teams from all around South Manchester, as well as matches arranged with like-minded clubs from the region.

If you would like your child (boy or girl) to be involved in the Lymm Rovers Development Academy in September then please contact below.

Lymm Piranhas J.F.C. Under 10s

Our under 10s team (for those born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004) are looking for new players for the coming season (Under 11s for 2014/15). The team who have been together for 5 years move from playing 7 a-side football to 9 a-side in the 2014/15 season and therefore seek additional players.

The team trains on a Monday evening all year round and plays in the Warrington Junior Football League on Saturday mornings. Over the summer, we usually enter a couple of organised tournaments. The emphasis is very much on the kids enjoying their football whilst developing their skills an no previous experience or skill level is required. Any parents of current Year 5 children who are interested in joining the team or just popping along to a training session to see how they like it, should contact the Under 10s Coach, Andy Butterworth (07563 789 993 or acbutterworth@sky.com).
